Nick Collison PF/C OKC 3 Months

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.

Nick Collison is likely to start Game 1 vs. the Spurs, according to coach Scott Brooks.

The Thunder will have no adjustment period with Serge Ibaka (calf) out indefinitely. Ibaka has missed just three of OKC's last 373 games, so this will certainly be foreign territory for them. Kevin Durant could even see some time at center while Steven Adams may also get some extra run.

Nick Collison was ejected on Monday for an altercation with Austin Rivers.

Collison is usually in the news for his face getting busted open, but not tonight. He lasted just eight minutes before the ejection, finishing with no points, one board and two assists. There shouldn't be a suspension for this incident.

Nick Collison needed four staples to the top of his head in the fourth quarter on Thursday.

He was bleeding everywhere and his cut was extremely large based on surface area. Collison cleared to return and he didn't appear concussed, so he should be fine for Friday Among players appearing in at last five games and logging 20 minutes per contest this season, Collison ranks first in plus-minus per game at 5.8. His impact is more in reality than in fantasy.

Nick Collison scored a season-high 10 points in Sunday's win vs. the Kings, adding seven rebounds and a pair of assists in 17 minutes of action.

Collison is shooting 54 percent from the field and continues to provide competent rebounds and screens off the bench, but he's yet to attempt more than seven field goals in a game this season.

Nick Collison played a season-high 30 minutes against the Jazz on Tuesday with nine points, six boards, three assists and one 3-pointer.

Serge Ibaka (illness) missed his first game of the season tonight and Collison was the main guy to pick up the slack. Ibaka is one of the most durable players in the NBA and has a good chance to return for Thursday's game, so there's not much incentive to picking up Collison.

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.
