Darren Collison didn’t get too much sleep last night. His wife Keyosha delivered their first child, a baby boy named Kinston. According to sources, new dad was seen still wearing his hospital wristband as he went through practice on Tuesday.

As a Clippers fan we’re all excited about the new addition of Clipper Nation, but the most important thing is the newly acquired backup guard will play tonight in the season opener vs. the Los Angeles Lakers.

"“It’s one of the best times in my life, probably not sleeping-wise, I didn’t get too much sleep,” Collison said. “I’ll be fine for the game.”“I want to,” Collison. “But I might have to take it off because [Chris Paul] said I just cut him with it. We’ll see.”“My knee is fine, it’s better,” Collison said. “I can tolerate the pain. It’s not fully where I need it to be but I’m running fine. There’s no limp. I’m ready to go. It’s go time.”"
