Collins had 10 points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-4 FT), and nine rebounds in 26 minutes during Thursday's 116-105 victory over the Clippers.
Collins played 26 minutes Thursday, three more than starter Jusuf Nurkic. Despite the playing time, Collins was only able to produce 10 points to go with nine rebounds. While this looks good on the surface, it does make the third consecutive game without a blocked shot. His early season value was based around blocks and high field-goal percentages. If he is not doing either of those, he is going to be limited to deeper formats moving forward.
Coach Terry Stotts split the playing time just about evenly between starter Jusuf Nurkic (25 minutes) and Collins, with the latter turning in the less eye-popping stat line of the two. Nurkic doesn't seem in danger of losing out of the top job at the position, but his occasionally up-and-down play should pave the way for Collins to at least see minutes in the high teens throughout the season. Collins was a remarkably efficient producer through the Blazers' first seven games with averages of 11.1 points, 4.7 rebounds, 2.0 blocks, 1.4 assists and 0.9 three-pointers in only 21.9 minutes, but he's fallen below almost all of those marks in the last four contests while turning the ball over eight times. Despite the recent struggles, Collins' well-rounded production makes him a useful depth piece outside of shallow formats, and he would likely warrant ownership in just about every league if Nurkic were to miss time with injury at any point.
Collins scored 17 points (7-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding three rebounds, three assists and one block across 27 minutes in Monday's 103-93 win over the Pacers.
Collins now has three consecutive double-digit point outings off the bench as he has been nothing short of efficient. Collins continues to work behind other forwards in the rotation but seems to be carving out a nice role for himself on the Trail Blazer roster.
Collins contributed 13 points (2-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-8 FT), four rebounds, and two blocks in 23 minutes during Saturday's 120-111 loss to Miami.
Collins backed up his 17 point outing from Thursday with another strong effort here. He was quiet in the first half but came to life in the fourth quarter, helping the Trail Blazers grab the lead before eventually running out of steam. Jusuf Nurkic appears to be cemented in as the starter but Collins is certainly doing his playing time no harm with a number of flashy moments. His value is still probably limited to slightly deeper formats but standard league owners should keep an eye on the situation moving forward.
Collins totaled 17 points (7-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block across 18 minutes in Thursday's 128-114 win over the Magic.
Collins did not miss in this contest, converting every shot from the floor and the charity stripe while also filling the stat sheet on defense. He will continue to fight for minutes in the paint with Meyers Leonard, who only played 4 minutes Thursday night.
