Nick Collison PF/C OKC 1 Month

Collison recorded a line of eight points (3-6 FG, 2-5 3Pt), three rebounds, one steal, and one block on Tuesday. He turned the ball over twice in 22 minutes during the loss to the Jazz.

Collison attempted five 3-pointers on Tuesday, something he doesn't normally do. The veteran plays defense well, but continues to have no fantasy value, even on an injury depleted Thunder squad.

Collison scored three points (1-5 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and secured three rebounds in 19 minutes of play against the New Jersey Nets on Monday.

Collison is a defensive role player that holds immense value to NBA teams with championship aspirations. Unfortunately, that doesn't translate to fantasy sports. The 10 year veteran is waiver wire fodder barring injuries to multiple front court players.

Collison (ankle) will make his preseason debut for the Thunder on Tuesday, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.

He will likely be the first big man off the bench, as Serge Ibaka and Steven Adams continue to start in the frontcourt. Consider Collison healthy moving forward.

Collison (ankle) was a limited participant in Monday's practice, but he could make his preseason debut Tuesday, the Oklahoman's Anthony Slater reports.

It doesn't sound like Collison is in jeopardy of missing the start of the regular season, but even so, he won't approach 30 minutes per game, and can therefore be left alone in shallower leagues.

Collison (ankle) will not play in Sunday's preseason game against the Timberwolves, the Star Tribune reports.

Collison dealt with knee issues during the offseason and has now spent training camp nursing an ankle injury. His inability to get on the court is certainly concerning, although the aging veteran should only be owned in the very deepest of leagues that are alright with players who only get on the court for 10-15 minutes a game.

Collison (ankle) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.

Collison (ankle) will not play in Wednesday's preseason opener, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.

Collison (ankle) will sit out Sunday's intrasquad scrimmage, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.

The veteran entered camp nursing a knee injury and is now dealing with an ankle sprain. The team is likely holding him out as a precaution, more than anything else. When the regular season begins, Collison will resume his role as a utility big man off the bench behind Steven Adams or Kendrick Perkins, who are competing for the starting center spot.

Collison (knee) will be ready for training camp, Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman reports.

Collison underwent arthroscopic knee surgery back in June but has fully recovered and won't be limited as camp begins. The veteran will once again serve as a backup big man, likely seeing between 15-20 minutes per game.

Nick Collison has undergone arthroscopic surgery on his knee, according to the Oklahoma City Thunder's official Twitter feed.

The team also tweeted that he is expected to miss 4-6 weeks and then return to normal offseason activities. The reported timetable shouldn't have any effect on Collison's availability for the 2014-15 season as he should be ready for the start of training camp barring any setbacks. While the 33-year-old is a solid fixture in the Thunder's rotation, his 2013-14 averages of 4.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.3 assists do a good job of illustrating his limited fantasy upside.
