Collins (concussion) added 14 points (6-11 FG, 2-5 3Pt), 11 rebounds, one assist and one block over 25 minutes Wednesday in the Hawks' 127-112 win over the Celtics.
Despite playing through a concussion, Collins still managed to put up his second double-double in his last three games. He's now seen his point total increase in four straight games though his rebounding has been up and down of late. After going 15 straight games in which he grabbed at least five rebounds, Collins has now failed to do so in six straight.
Collins (concussion) is available for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
After sitting out the second half of Tuesday's game against the Cavaliers, Collins has passed concussion protocol and will be available one day later. This month, Collins has averaged 18.8 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 30.7 minutes.
Collins (concussion) will be a game-time decision for Wednesday's matchup against Boston, Chris Kirschner of The Athletic reports.
Collins was evaluated for a concussion Wednesday, and by virtue of the fact that he hasn't been ruled out, it appears he likely passed the team's tests. Even so, there's still a chance the big man could be held out of Wednesday's game, so be sure to check in on his status before locking him into any DFS lineups. Collins departed Tuesday's loss to Cleveland after putting up 13 points and three rebounds in 13 minutes.
Atlanta head coach Lloyd Pierce said that Collins will be evaluated for concussion symptoms early Wednesday before his status is determined ahead of the Hawks' 7:30 p.m. ET tipoff with the Celtics, Mike Conti of the Atlanta Hawks Radio Network reports.
Collins was off to a hot start in Tuesday's 112-111 loss to the Cavaliers, racking up 13 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and an assist through 13 minutes. However, Collins took a hit to the head at some point in the second quarter, resulting in the Hawks shutting him down for the rest of the night while he underwent evaluation for a concussion. The initial results were apparently inconclusive, so Collins will be subject to more tests Wednesday before the Hawks rule on his status. Pierce noted that if Collins is placed into the NBA's concussion protocol, the big man would be sidelined through the All-Star break, so Wednesday's evaluation will have significant implications.
Collins is being evaluated for a concussion and won't return to Tuesday's game at Cleveland, Sarah K. Spencer of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The 23-year-old was off to a strong start with 13 points (5-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 13 minutes before exiting the contest. Collins' availability for the second half of the back-to-back set Wednesday versus the Celtics is in question due to the potential concussion.
Collins had eight points (3-13 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and one steal in Friday's loss to the Celtics.
It was the lowest fantasy output of the season for Collins, who was coming off of a 20-point effort in Wednesday's win over Boston. Collins finished as a game-worst minus-28 in his 30 minutes, and he's now averaging just 14.8 points, 5.6 rebounds and 0.6 blocks over his last five appearances (29.4 MPG).
Collins scored 20 points (6-9 FG, 8-8 FT) while adding six rebounds, two assists and a block in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 122-114 win over the Celtics.
He was money in the fourth quarter, converting all four of his free-throw attempts inside the final 11 seconds to help squash any thought of a comeback attempt by Boston. The 23-year-old big has been the third wheel lately in Atlanta as Trae Young and Clint Capela have formed a potent partnership, but Collins has still averaged 21.3 points, 7.3 boards, 1.6 threes and 1.3 assists over nine games this month.
Collins had 19 points (8-14 FG, 3-3 3Pt), four rebounds, a steal and a block in Monday's loss to the Knicks.
It was another relatively quiet game for Collins, who's now scored fewer than 20 points in three consecutive contests and five of his last six. During that six-game stretch, he's averaging 19.2 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 block and 1.5 made three-pointers.
Collins recorded nine points (3-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 23 minutes during Friday's 125-114 loss to the Spurs.
Coming into Friday's action, Collins was on a nine-game double-digit scoring streak, where he averaged 22.8 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.1 blocks in 35.4 minutes. His good fortunes came to an end Friday, as he struggled to score and committed three turnovers to his lone assist.
Collins scored 33 points (13-18 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 6-6 FT) to go along with eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block across across 38 minutes in Wednesday's 118-117 loss to the Mavericks.
Collins posted a 79.9 true-shooting percentage to top 30 points for the second time in his last four games. Also encouraging were his defensive contributions, as both his 0.5 steals and 1.0 blocks per game are significant downturns from the 2019-20 campaign. Even so, Collins' trajectory is positive, as he topped 20 points only twice in his first 13 games, but has reached the milestone six times in his last 11 contests.
Collins contributed 19 points (6-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and three blocks across 34 minutes in Saturday's win over the Raptors.
Collins ended short of both the 20-point mark and a double-double, but he still found a way to stuff the stat sheet while swatting three or more shots for the third time this season. Collins has now scored in double figures in eight straight games, a span in which he's also racked up two double-doubles.
Collins scored 35 points (16-21 FG, 3-4 3PT) to go along with 12 rebounds and one assist across 40 minutes in Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks.
Collins stayed hot from the field and continued his excellent form across his past six games. In that span, he's averaged 22.7 points and shot 62.0 percent from the field to go along with 8.8 boards. However, his defensive output continues to lag, and as a result Collins is averaging only 1.0 blocks and 0.4 steals per game through 21 contests this season.
Collins scored 22 points (10-17 FG, 2-5 3PT) to go along with seven rebounds across 35 minutes in Monday's loss to the Lakers.
Collins led the team in field-goal attempts and topped 15 shots for only the fourth time this season. That helped him continue his strong run of scoring, as he's now averaging 20.2 points per across his last five contests. On the other hand, Collins turned in another empty defensive performance, continuing the trend of depressed steals and blocks contributions as compared to the 2019-20 campaign.
Collins went for 17 points (6-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and eight rebounds in 30 minutes in the Hawks' 116-100 win Friday over the Wizards.
With De'Andre Hunter leaving in the first half of Friday's game with knee soreness, Collins stepped up Friday night as the Hawks' No. 2 scorer behind Trae Young and finished behind Clint Capela in the rebounding department. Collins has now shot 60 percent or better from the field in three of his last four games while averaging 19.7 points and adding 8.5 rebounds per game.
Collins recorded 21 points (9-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), eight rebounds, three assists and one block Wednesday in a 132-128 overtime loss versus Brooklyn.
Collins averaged 21.6 points last season but has found reaching said tally much more difficult in this campaign, surpassing the mark only four times across 18 games. Collins' current role is less appealing than it was last year, considering he seems to be serving as a second rebounding option (behind Clint Capela) and third scoring option (behind Trae Young and De'Andre Hunter) for the Hawks.
Collins registered 30 points (12-19 FG, 6-9 3Pt), seven rebounds and three assists across 37 minutes in Sunday's loss against the Bucks.
Collins was coming off a season-worst four-point game against the Timberwolves on Friday, but he followed it up with his third game with at least 30 points -- two of those have come over his last three appearances. Collins continues to start despite the fact he is likely to leave the franchise at the end of the season, and while his production has been inconsistent, he's clearly capable of lighting it up on any given night. The fact that he has scored in double digits in all but two games should give fantasy managers a sense of calm, but Collins' numbers will take a hit when Trae Young (back) and Clint Capela (hand) return from the injuries that sidelined them Sunday.
Collins recorded four points (2-8 FG), seven rebounds, two assists and one block in 28 minutes during Friday's 116-98 win over the Timberwolves.
Collins' box score production was limited with him seeing just 28 minutes due to the blowout. That said, he could see less usage and fewer minutes moving forward, as Danilo Gallinari made his return to the rotation Friday, seeing 15 minutes. We should expect Gallinari to trend closer to minutes in the mid-20s moving forward, which complicates Collins' playing time. It appears Collins and the Hawks are headed toward a divorce sooner than later after the two sides failed to reach an agreement on a contract extension, but until Collins finds himself in a better basketball situation, fantasy managers shouldn't be surprised if his fantasy production begins to fall by the wayside. When Collins sees minutes in the 20s, he's averaging just 12.8 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists.
Collins recorded 31 points (13-24 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds, one steal and one block in 43 minutes during Wednesday's 123-115 win over the Pistons.
Collins' 31 points set a season high while his 11 rebounds tied a season high. He's had an inconsistent start to the season, but with the Hawks missing multiple players Wednesday, coach Lloyd Pierce opted to give the starters all at least 38 minutes. Collins is still performing during games where he gets the run, averaging 18.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks when seeing at least 30 minutes.
Collins tallied 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and four blocks across 36 minutes during Monday's 108-97 win over Minnesota.
The four blocks marked a season high for Collins as he rebounded from his first single-digit scoring game of the season with a strong all-around effort. The 23-year-old is up to 1.0 block per game as a result of this defensive display after he averaged 1.6 per contest last season.
Collins' matchup between the Suns and the Hawks on Wednesday has been postponed.
As has been the case multiple times this season, at least one of the two teams does not have the required eight available players for the game to be played. The Hawks' next game is scheduled for Friday against the Jazz in Utah.
