RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2013-14

Subscribe now to see our 2013-14 outlook.

2012-13

Collison's dirty-work role is more valuable to the Thunder than to fantasy owners. He averaged 20.7 minutes last season in 63 games, but he could see slightly increased minutes if Kendrick Perkins' injuries bleed into the regular season. In that case, OKC could shift Serge Ibaka to center and insert Nick Collison at power forward. Even then, though, don't expect many fantasy worthy numbers beyond, perhaps, rebounds.

2011-12

Collison provides the Thunder with steady play off the bench, but his role as a reserve limits his fantasy potential. The midseason acquisition of Kendrick Perkins last year solidified the bench role of the former part-time starter. He'll still get 20 or so minutes as the first man off the bench in the 4-5 rotation, doing the dirty work underneath the hoop. His production fell last season to 4.6 points and 4.5 rebounds per game, both career lows, as he played in only 71 games thanks to injuries. A shortened NBA season should help keep the role player fresher this season.

2010-11

Except for the 2007-08 season, when he averaged close to 10 rebounds per game, Collison has never really been a rosterable fantasy option by most formats. After the Thunder's draft-day acquisition of Collison-clone Cole Aldrich (both are defense-oriented big men who went to Kansas), Collison's stock falls even further. Even before the team acquired Aldrich, things weren't looking so hot: Nenad Krstic and Serge Ibaka are probably both ahead of Collison on the depth chart.

2009-10

Collison is a defensive-minded center. He attacks the glass on the offensive end, and plays with energy and determination. Collisonís per-game averages show little change whether he is starting or coming off the bench. He started 40 games at center for the Thunder but, with the team out of contention, head coach Scott Brooks installed Nenad Krstic as the teamís starting pivot for their final 29 games. Rookies Serge Ibaka and B.J. Mullens arenít likely to find themselves in the rotation at the beginning of the year, but, recently acquired big man, Etan Thomas will be competing with Collison and Krstic for the starting job. Krstic didnít separate himself when put into the starting role last year, and the Thunder will probably have a fluid division of minutes at the center position. If the Thunder struggle early in the season and fall out of the playoff race, they could easily opt to put Ibaka or Mullens in the starting lineup to give them more experience. Any such move would limit Collisonís production. While there are a number of questions about Collisonís role going into the 2009-2010 season, his ability to log minutes both at center and power forward should ensure that heís in the mix.

2008-09

Collison is coming off of the best season of his career, in which almost averaged a double-double (career bests 9.8 points and 9.4 boards) despite playing less than 29 mpg and only starting 35 times in 78 games. Collison is undersized as a center at only 6-9, but he is not scared to throw around his 255 pounds as he uses contact and hustle on defense and a surprisingly skilled offensive repertoire to good effect. Collisonís game isnít dominant or diverse enough for him to become an impact center, but he shoots good percentages from both the field (50.2% FG) and the line (73.7% FT) which, when combined with the scoring and rebounds, makes him a viable rotation-caliber player.

2007-08

Collison is coming off of the best season of his career, during which he took over as the starting center for the Sonics and averaged almost a double-double (11.0 points, 9.0 boards) in 54 starts in the middle. His game is not dominant or diverse enough to consider him an impact fantasy starter, but he shoots good percentages from both the field and the line. Combine that with the scoring and rebounds, and youíve got a more-than viable rotation player.

2006-07

Collison showed promise last year, but injuries have derailed his development. This year he'll back up Chris Wilcox at power foward. The Sonics are committed to developing Johan Petro and Robert Swift at center, which also will limit Collison's minutes.

2005-06

After losing his rookie year to injury, Collison showed continued development as a sophomore, averaging 5.7 points and 4.6 rebounds in 17 minutes per game. Collison could see about 25-30 minutes per game this season, which would increase his fantasy value somewhat, but not enough to make a big difference as he'll still be relied upon to do the dirty work inside. However, new coach Bob Weiss has given Collison the green light to shoot from long distance more often than he did last season. Collison will battle Vladimir Radmanovic and Reggie Evans to start at power forward.

2004-05

Collison spent last season sidelined with shoulder injuries. But watching and learning in what amounted to a red-shirt year should benefit the 6-foot-9 forward. The Sonics' frontcourt is weak, so Collison will have an opportunity for solid minutes. He'll have his share of growing pains, though, as a rookie.

2003-04

Collison will miss his rookie season because of shoulder injuries. He was to compete for the starting power forward job. Keep an eye on him for next year's draft, though, as he'll fall off everyone's radar.
