Sixers Coach Doug Collins Leaves Game With Symptoms Of Vertigo

It’s not often that a team announces that the return of a coach is questionable… but that’s what the Sixers did when head coach Doug Collins left the bench tonight with symptoms of vertigo. As Sixerville points out, Collins missed two preseason games due to vertigo from a concussion he sustained over the summer.

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.

Here’s a definition of vertigo from Emedicine.com

Vertigo is the feeling that you or your environment is moving or spinning. It differs from dizziness in that vertigo describes an illusion of movement. When you feel as if you yourself are moving, it’s called subjective vertigo, and the perception that your surroundings are moving is called objective vertigo.
