Collison collected 17 points (6-10 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-8 FT), four assists, three rebounds, two blocks, and one steal in 36 minutes during Friday's 110-102 win over the Heat. Collison was coming off a scoreless performance plus two more single-digit efforts prior to that, so it was good to see him bounce back in this one. Given the team's depth at point guard, with Corey Joseph and Tyreke Evans fighting for reserve minutes and Oladipo also capable of handling the ball, Collison will likely find it difficult to deliver the same consistency that he provided last season.
Collison had zero points (0-3 FG), one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 18 minutes during Wednesday's 100-94 loss to the 76ers. Collison delivered a dud, spending most of the game on the sidelines as Corey Joseph earned 31 minutes and Tyreke Evans earned 21 minutes. Coach Nate McMillan has proven willing to ride the hot hand among the three, and Joseph remains the team's best defensive point guard. Overall, Collison is typically a passable low-end starter in standard leagues, though the addition of Evans and continued presence of Joseph does complicate things a bit.
Collison had 14 points (6-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, four assists, and two steals in 36 minutes during Friday's 107-105 win over the Bulls. Collison connected on the go-ahead basket after struggling for most of the contest. Fantasy owners should take solace in the fact that coach Nate McMillan could've easily opted to replace Collison with Corey Joseph or Tyreke Evans (41 minutes combined) but instead chose to stick with the starter down the stretch.
Collison recorded 17 points (8-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six assists, two rebounds and two steals across 36 minutes in Monday's 103-93 loss to the Trail Blazers. Collison continues to fluctuate scoring, as his average of 16 points over the last two games is compounded by his average of five points the two games prior. Collison will always have a knack to steal and put up assists, but his scoring output, if improved, will give him a huge bump in fantasy value going forward.
Collison collected five points (1-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six assists, four rebounds, and two steals in 25 minutes during Monday's 101-91 loss to the Timberwolves. After averaging 29.9 minutes per game last season, Collison is seeing just 24.0 per through the first four tilts of 2018-19. The arrival of Tyreke Evans combined with the presence of Corey Joseph appears to be resulting in a reduced role for Collison, which in turn could cap his value in standard leagues.
