PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Philadelphia 76ers coach Doug Collins was not on the bench for the second half of Wednesday night's game against Indiana because of symptoms related to vertigo. His return was questionable.

Associate head coach Michael Curry took over with the Sixers holding a 26-point lead at halftime.

Collins missed two preseason games because of symptoms related to a concussion he sustained on Memorial Day. He then had neurological testing and treatment for what was diagnosed as vertigo.
