The Kings starting point guard Darren Collison is listed as doubtful for Friday’s game against the Celtics at Sleep Train Arena.
Collison missed the last four consecutive games before the All-Star break due to a right hip flexor strain.
An MRI on Feb. 6 revealed Collison’s injury sustained in a 101-78 loss to the Mavericks on Feb. 5.

With 1:44 left in the second quarter, Collison made a driving layup to cut the Mavericks' lead to 52-39, but the point guard landed awkwardly and immediately grabbed his right groin area before walking to the locker room.
Collison, 27, did not return to the game against Dallas. The Kings point guard is averaging 16.1 points and 5.6 assists per game this year.
The point guard situation is changing in Sacramento, as the Kings acquired Andre Miller in exchange for Ramon Sessions on Thursday before the NBA trade deadline.

Miller, who toiled in Denver under new Kings coach George Karl can backup Collison and mentor second year guard, Ray McCallum also provides depth chart at the point guard spot for Sacramento.
Friday's game against the Celtics (20-31) is the first of the George Karl era at the helm of the Kings.
