Sixers coach Doug Collins leaves bench with symptoms relating to vertigo

Sixers coach Doug Collins, who missed two preseason games due to vertigo, had to stay in the locker room at halftime of the Sixers-Pacers game dut to recurring symptoms.

Collins suffered broken ribs and a concussion in a fall on Memorial Day and has been suffering from dizzyness and headaches. He left the team in Cincinnati during the preseason and missed that game along with a game the next night in Philadelphia.

Collins appeared fine before the game and was up and down off the bench, as usual, during the first half in which the Sixers took a 57-31 lead looking for their first win.

His return to tonight's game is questionable.
