John Collins News
Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins (back) will play during Wednesday's game against the Miami Heat. He has been active over the last two games, but missed time before that due to COVID-19 protocols. It doesn't appear that the back issue is going to be something that causes him to miss time. Instead, Collins should be asked to pick up the slack with the Hawks shorthanded on Wednesday. Fantasy managers should make sure he's in their lineups for season long formats. Collins is also worth looking at as a DFS option for Wednesday's slate with some of the Hawks playmakers sidelined.
Atlanta Hawks forward John Collins has cleared the league's health and safety protocols. Although, Collins won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Sacramento Kings. Instead, the organization plans to meet up with Collins in Los Angeles for their weekend series. There is a chance he plays Friday, but it's more likely he suits up Sunday against the Los Angeles Lakers. Until then, Trae Young and Clint Capela will be asked to carry the load for the Hawks. Fantasy managers should keep an eye on Collins to see if he does suit up at all this weekend.
Atlanta Hawks power forward John Collins extended his double-double streak to three games on Wednesday, recording 28 points and 12 rebounds in a 104-98 loss versus Orlando. He added two assists and two blocks with three turnovers, shooting 9-for-17 from the field and 7-for-8 at the line with a 3-for-5 effort from deep. Collins was the only regular starter due to the team's COVID-19 issues and ended up logging a season-high 41 minutes. The big workload could leave a mark on his Thursday's performance. It's a very tough matchup anyway against Joel Embiid and the Sixers. Collins finds himself in a much better spot to perform on Christmas Day versus the Knicks.
Atlanta Hawks power forward John Collins logged his eighth double-double of the season by pouring in 20 points and 10 boards during a 133-115 loss to the Denver Nuggets on Friday.

The Wake Forest product also added in two assists, two steals, and two turnovers across 33 minutes.

Collins faces a tough matchup Sunday in Evan Mobley of the Cleveland Cavaliers, who held Collins to six points during their matchup in October.
