Collison (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 126-121 loss to the Trail Blazers on Wednesday. Collison hasn't played in any of the Thunder's games since Feb. 11, and has made all of 14 appearances on the season while averaging a career-low 5.8 minutes per game. It's looking like it could be the end of the line for the 36-year-old, who will become a free agent this summer.
Collison played 11 minutes in Friday's 114-102 win over the Grizzlies, recording two points (2-4 FT), three rebounds and one assist. Collison saw some surprising run in a game that wasn't decided until the fourth quarter, with the 11 minutes marking his second most of the season. The Thunder have a void in the rotation for a 10th man with Enes Kanter (forearm) likely out for a month or longer, and Collison could end up settling into that role after Kyle Singler flopped when given the first crack at those duties.
Collison (coach's decision) didn't play in Monday's 109-94 win over the Bulls. Collison has only made one appearance in the Thunder's past 11 games and doesn't look on track to reenter coach Billy Donovan's rotation in the near future. The 36-year-old's main role will come as a mentor for the team's younger players in what could be the final season of his NBA career.
Collison logged eight minutes in Tuesday's 114-95 loss to the Trail Blazers, providing no points, three rebounds and one assist. It was Collison's first appearance since Nov. 16, as the Thunder's blowout loss allowed some of the team's deep bench options to get some rare run. At this stage in his career, Collison is little more than a positive presence in the locker room, with coach Billy Donovan not depending on him for much on-court contributions.
Collison (coach's decision) didn't play in Monday's 97-85 win over the Thunder. Collison remains an important veteran voice in the locker room, but he's not going to be a member of coach Billy Donovan's rotation in most games. He's appeared in just one of the Thunder's first seven contests.
