    John Collins started at center on Tuesday night against the Suns and came away with 22 points, 10 rebounds, three blocks and two 3-pointers while shooting 10-of-16 from the field.

    The Hawks have been back and forth about playing Collins at center, and frankly his fantasy production shouldn't change all that much. More avenues to minutes is always good, but ss long as he's on the floor then we've got an early-round player on our hands. It's not like playing time was a bottleneck here anyway.

    John Collins had an off night in Sunday's loss, going 2-of-8 from the floor for eight points, five rebounds, three assists and two blocks.

    The blocks were a nice consolation, as they were the missing ingredient for the talented Collins last season. He also went 0-for-5 from deep in this one, and although he's been an average 3-point shooter in his career, that's generally not where we want to see him doing damage. Expect the usual from Collins in the next one.

    John Collins notched a double-double in Friday's 101-111 loss to the Wizards with 15 points, 12 rebounds, four blocks and a triple.

    It was the third double-double in five games for Collins who continues to be a fantasy monster. The blocks are especially encouraging and if he maintains improvements there the sky is the limit for him in fantasy.

    John Collins notched another double-double on Wednesday, ending with 17 points, 14 rebounds, a steal and four blocks.

    It was another strong performance for John Collins who looks to be picking up where he left off before his brief injury. He will get plenty of looks on this young team and is a first-round asset in 9-cat leagues right now.

    John Collins (back contusion) returned from a one-game absence and posted 17 points on 6-of-15 shooting (4-of-5 FTs), five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a 3-pointer vs. the Nuggets on Monday.

    Collins' 11-game season is still a bit of a small sample, but he's been amazing, producing as the 20th/10th-best player (8-cat/9-cat) in those games. His defensive stats are mostly to credit for the improvement from last season, but that may be unlikely to continue. De'Andre Hunter had a strong performance as well with 16 points, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and four 3-pointers in 37 points.

    John Collins (back contusion) will play on Monday and rejoin the starting lineup.

    Collins missed one game, during which Damian Jones joined the starting lineup. Jones will return to the bench for this one. Collins has scored 18.1 points and hauled in 9.7 rebounds during his first ten games of the season.

    Jabari Parker (illness, shoulder impingement) will be held out of Monday's game against the Nuggets.

    Parker's fantasy value has plummeted since John Collins returned. Even when healthy, he's not a recommended add unless other Hawks are banged up.

    John Collins (back contusion) was able to go through shootaround and expects to play on Monday night.

    Collins missed Saturday's game but the injury isn't viewed as a long-term issue. It feels safe to pencil the big man into your lineups tonight, and one of Damian Jones or Bruno Fernando will be returning to a bench role.

    John Collins (back contusion) is questionable for Monday's game versus the Nuggets.

    Collins sat out of Saturday's game versus the Pacers, but the Hawks said they are not viewing the injury as anything longterm. If Collins is unable to suit up Bruno Fernando will likely draw another start.

    John Collins (back contusion) will not play on Saturday, nor will Jabari Parker (illness) or Cam Reddish (wrist).

    Collins was previously listed as doubtful and fantasy GMs can only hope that he won't miss much more time. He's been a first-round value but a lengthy suspension has kept him to just 10 games so far. With Parker also out, the Hawks will get weird and start Bruno Fernando next to Damian Jones. Expect lots of extra minutes for any of the Hawks wings.

    John Collins (back contusion) is doubtful to play against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Collins suffered the injury during a collision with Jayson Tatum in Friday's game and did not return. Although he is not expected to play, the fact that he hasn't been ruled out yet is a good sign. With Jabari Parker also doubtful on Saturday so De'Andre Hunter may see extended minutes at power forward on Saturday.

    Jabari Parker returned to the lineup after missing three games with a shoulder impingement, posting four points, two rebounds, three assists and one steal in 15 minutes.

    Parker was easily a top-100 player with John Collins missing extended time but his role has decreased significantly since being moved to the bench. With Collins leaving Friday's game with a back contusion and uncertain for Saturday, Parker may be fantasy relevant again for at least one game or possibly more.

    John Collins suffered a back contusion on Friday and left the game after logging 22 minutes and tallying 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting, two treys, eight rebounds, one assist and one steal.

    His status for Saturday is currently uncertain. If Collins does miss any games because of this injury, expect Jabari Parker (four points, two rebounds, three assists, one steal, 15 minutes) to step into the starting lineup.

    John Collins suffered a back contusion after colliding with Jayson Tatum and will not return on Friday.

    With Collins out, we should see more of Alex Len and Jabari Parker in this game.
