New Jersey Nets: Center Jason Collins suffered a cut over his right eye late in the first half of his team's game against the Heat on Monday night.

Collins was hurt with 1:01 remaining in the half when he battled several players in the lane for a rebound. Some blood dripped onto the court, and Collins went into the locker room with a towel over his eye.

There was no immediate word on his availability for the second half.
