Nick Collison PF/C OKC 23 Days
Nick Collison (hip) will return to the lineup and face the Clippers on Wednesday.
He missed Sunday's game and could help fill the void left by Kendrick Perkins (personal). Collison does a lot on the court to help the team, but he doesn't do enough in the box score to be added in almost any fantasy league.

Nick Collison will not play against the Wizards on Sunday due to a hip contusion.
He's played 17.6 minutes per game and is an important ancillary piece for the second unit. The first thing that probably comes to mind for owners is whether this helps hot pickup Steven Adams, but almost all of Collison's minutes have come at power forward while all of Adams' come at the five. That may change tonight, so Adams could build off his 17-point explosion from Friday.

Beat writer Darnell Mayberry expects Nick Collison to play more in Friday's Game 6 vs. Houston.
Scott Brooks has very strangely not played Collison over 20 minutes in any game, and it's about time he proved capable of making an adjustment when it's desperately needed. Collison averaged 19.5 minutes during the regular season but has not played that much in any game during the playoffs.

Nick Collison will be a game-time decision on Friday against the Magic due to a groin contusion.
That does not sound pleasant. Collison hasn't received a blurb since the end of January which tells you his relevance in fantasy leagues, but if he sits out, it would mean Serge Ibaka would likely see more minutes and that's a bigger takeaway than Collison's absence. Kendrick Perkins would also be asked to play more minutes than usual if Collison is sidelined.

Nick Collison logged a season-high 41 minutes against the Clippers on Tuesday and had eight points, seven boards, two assists, one steal and two blocks.
Kendrick Perkins had four fouls in seven minutes, so Collison was given some extra burn in the win. The Kansas product couldn't produce with Serge Ibaka out of the lineup last week, so there's no reason to pick him up in most formats.
