Description: Kings guard Darren Collison has a chance to be a steal in fantasy drafts.
Insight: With Isaiah Thomas gone, Collison will be starting at point guard, and will have a great chance to improve on his 11.4 points per game, 3.7 assists per game, and 1,2 steals per game, averages from last season. Owners should think about drafting Collison beginning in the 10th round.
7/3/2014 12:53:00 PM
Description: Darren Collison has agreed to a three-year, $16 million contract with the Sacramento Kings, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Collison averaged 25.9 minutes, 11.4 points, 3.7 assists, 2.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals with the Clippers last season, though he was much better in 35 starts (14.8 ppg, 5.3 apg, 2.5 rpg, 1.5 spg). Collison said he hopes to compete for a starting job and he may just do that if the Kings choose to let restricted free agent Isaiah Thomas walk. The Kings will be the fifth team the 26-year-old Collison has played for in six seasons in the NBA.

Description: Darren Collison helped the Clippers erase a 16-point fourth quarter deficit Sunday in a Game 4 win over OKC.
Insight: Twelve of Collison's 18 points came in the final 12 minutes including a tie-breaking layup with 59 seconds left. Sunday marked Collison's highest point total since the final game of the regular season when he scored 19 in a loss to Portland. Game 5 is Tuesday in Oklahoma City.

Description: Los Angeles guard Darren Collison blew up for 28 points, seven assists, three rebounds and two threes in 43 minutes Monday at Minnesota.
Insight: Jamal Crawford missed the game due to soreness in his left Achilles. Collison kept the starting job to Crawford when he returned from his left calf strain, but he plays more minutes when Crawford is out.

Description: Los Angeles guard Darren Collison practiced on Thursday and is expected to play Saturday against Detroit. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: Collison (10.8 ppg, 3.5 apg) missed two games with a stomach virus earlier this week. Willie Green (5.1 ppg) will head back to the bench when Collison returns.
3/17/2014 8:36:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison (illness) will sit out Monday, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
Insight: With J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford and Collison out and Jared Dudley not part of the rotation at the moment, the Clippers will turn to Willie Green and Reggie Bullock to handle the SG/backup SF minutes once again on Monday.
3/17/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison missed Sunday's game with a stomach virus and is questionable for Monday's game against Denver.
Insight: With J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford and Collison out and Jared Dudley not part of the rotation at the moment, the Clippers started Willie Green Sunday. Green has posted double-digit points in three consecutive games and is a viable option if Collison is still sidelined.
3/16/2014 9:20:00 PM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison will miss Sunday's game with an illness, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.
Insight: With J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford and Collison out and Jared Dudley not part of the rotation at the moment, the Clippers will start Willie Green Sunday. Collison averaged 16.6 points, 3.6 assists, 2.1 rebounds, 1.8 steals, 1.5 threes last eight games (seven starts).
3/11/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison continues to post big numbers with Jamal Crawford out of the lineup.
Insight: Collison is averaging 18.0 ppg, 2.3 rpg, 4.0 apg, 1.8 spg over the past six games. Crawford has missed four of the past five games and apparently came back too soon from his calf injury and could miss more time.
3/5/2014 9:20:00 AM
Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison has averaged 32.3 minutes, 17.3 points, 4.3 assists, 2.3 threes and 2.0 steals his last three games.
Insight: Jamal Crawford strained his left calf three games ago and Collison has taken advantage while starting the last two. Crawford is expected back soon, however.

Description: Clippers guard Darren Collison will be in the starting lineup Friday night against Chicago. SOURCE: Brad Turner, Los Angeles Times
Insight: Collison (9.5 ppg, 3.0 apg) has been bothered by a toe injury but it hasn't caused him to miss any time. He'll continue to fill in at point guard while Chris Paul recovers from a separated shoulder.
1/23/2014 6:49:00 PM
Description: Los Angeles point guard Darren Collison has been playing with a sprained toe. SOURCE: NBA.com
Insight: It's his left big toe. Collison (9.5 ppg) has been starting in Chris Paul's place. If the injury gets any worse, the unproven Darius Morris (4.6 ppg) may have to fill in at point guard.
10/28/2013 9:06:00 PM
Description: Clippers backup point guard Darren Collison (bruised kneecap) didn't practice much on Monday but coach Doc Rivers expects him to play, according to Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times.
Insight: Don't expect much fantasy production from Collison this season. Last year's backup, Eric Bledsoe, averaged just 20 minutes per game behind Paul and that included getting some minutes at the two-guard spot, something Collison won't do with J.J. Redick, Jamal Crawford and Jared Dudley on the roster.
7/6/2013 10:03:00 PM
Description: Point guard Darren Collison has inked a two-year deal with the Clippers. SOURCE: Marc Stein, ESPN
Insight: Collison never looked that comfortable in Dallas, averaging just 12 ppg and 5.1 apg in 29.3 minutes per game last season. He'll backup Chris Paul next season, a role that probably won't result in much fantasy productivity.
4/17/2013 10:51:00 PM
Description: Dallas Mavericks point guard Darren Collison had his highest-scoring game since Dec. 27 Wednesday against the Hornets in the season finale. Collison scored 25 points on 10-of-15 shooting.
Insight: Collison played 81 games and 29 mpg this season, but he was inconsistent and only averaged 12 ppg and 5.1 apg. Dallas coach Rick Carlisle never seemed fully committed to Collison as the starting point guard.
3/6/2013 8:51:00 PM
Description: Mavericks point guard Darren Collison will come off the bench Wednesday against the Rockets, with Mike James moving into the starting lineup. SOURCE: Bryan Gutierrez, Mavs.com
Insight: Collison is only shooting 35.6 percent from the field over his last seven games and he allowed Jeremy Lin to score 21 points Sunday. It's unclear if this change will last more than one game.
2/27/2013 10:58:00 PM
Description: Mavericks point guard Darren Collison has gone ice cold from the field lately. He's shooting just 30.6 percent (15-of-49) over his last five games.
Insight: Collison has been a solid point guard option since he reacquired the starting job in late December but fantasy owners should take him out of the lineup until he rediscovers his shot.
1/15/2013 4:36:00 PM
Description: Dallas point guard Darren Collison has started the last 11 games and is averaging 15.9 points, 5.4 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.0 threes during that time.
Insight: Collison lucked out when veteran Derek Fisher asked for his release, leaving the Mavericks with nowhere else to turn at the point guard position. Collison is averaging 13.6 ppg and 5.7 ast in 27 starts compared to 11.5 ppg and 3.6 ast in 11 games as a sub.
1/1/2013 8:42:00 PM
Description: Dallas point guard Darren Collison is averaging 18.8 points, 6.0 assists and 4.0 rebounds in four games since regaining his starting job.
Insight: Collison has played well enough to hold onto the starting point guard spot that was vacated when Derek Fisher requested his release.
12/28/2012 8:35:00 PM
Description: Dallas point guard Darren Collison will start again Friday after scoring a season-high 32 points Thursday in an overtime loss to Oklahoma City.
Insight: Collison has seemingly won back the starting point guard job that was up for grabs after Derek Fisher asked for his release. He shot 13-of-22 (4-4 3PT) with five rebounds, four assists and four steals Thursday and should be active in all fantasy lineups Friday against the Nuggets
