Collison is playing Tuesday vs NOR in his return from an 8-game suspension.
100% (2) agree 
He is 85th per-game in just under 30 min. I see you mention his last 5 games where he has a 3 and over a steal a game during that time. What's the issue here? He's never been a huge three or steals guy but he is more than serviceable there and he has always had nice percentages. Seems like your expectations for him may be unrealistic. I would clearly be holding.
I think Frazier is worth a look but I would not drop Collison for him, especially with the uncertainty of what a returning Tyreke will do to Frazier's usage. Collison's FG% makes him a very valuable commodity for teams looking to improve there, so if you are really discouraged by Collison try trading him to a team looking for FG% help.
0% (5) agree 
Starting to doubt this guy's potential for the season. Only 25 mins tonight? Even with 30+ mins over the last 5 games, his avg steals and 3's are much lower than expected. Drop for Tim Frazier?
75% (4) agree 
Any reason why he isn't starting yet when he is clearly superior to Lawson??? I'm tossing up dropping either Collison or Schroder in my H2H 9CAT league (shallow - 6 teams, 12 active players, 4 bench & 1 IR) as I've got Jrue coming off the IR and my other PGs are Irving, Lillard, Russell, Rubio and Paul. I'm punting FG, REB, BLKs - who would you rather drop? Up for Collison to be dropped, down for Schroder to be dropped.
25% (8) agree 
Someone dropped him in my 10 team H2H & thinking about dropping Marcus Smart or Steven Adams for him to claim off waivers at #4. Good or bad call?
100% (2) agree 
Someone dropped him in my 14 team 2 days ago. I was able to grab him off waivers at #7. Happy about this, jus sharing the excitement!
It's largely presumed that Collison will take the starting PG when he's back, but if the Kings are on a good roll, who knows? It has been suggested that Collison and Lawson might play together a lot, so maybe they both carry value, but the assists would come down, and that's Lawson's bread and croissant.
0% (1) agree 
Is Lawson going to fade away once Collison comes back? Can we expect the projected 32 minutes? He just got dropped in my 14 team.
They should never have been given IR/IL designation, but once they did and it was there for over a month, you can't change on the eve of the season. Yahoo sucks
I totally agree with you Josh that this change is completely bogus. I've been trying to argue against it for Jrue on their support pages here: https://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/206157-fantasy-basketball/suggestions/16336345-jrue-holiday Hopefully they don't do the same for Jrue as many drafted these guys thinking they could be IR stashed.
Rondo put up fantasy stats, but he was actively terrible as a real life player and George Karl just didn't care. I'm not sure Dave Joerger views it the same way. That's the major difference to me. Also Lawson has never been as good of a player as Rondo has been and he was much worse last season than Rondo was in Dallas
Is it just me or does this seem really similar to the Rondo pre-draft discussion last year. Both former top 30 fantasy players, late twenties, bad team fit in previous year, talk about bad character, move teams to SAC, worried about playing time due to Collison. Trying to figure out why Lawson can't have a turn around like Rondo?
Yes, but if that player no longer has IR status you can not make any transactions (trades, FA or Waiver adds/drops).
correct me if I'm wrong, but can't a fully healthy, active playr remain on IR, so long as they were placed there as initially injured (and haven't been remvoed since)?
100% (3) agree 
I agree wih him not being injured, but to make that change now is completely unfair. Absolutely nothing has changed with his status since they first assigned him INJ and it screws a lot of people over
Good to see Yahoo finally making the change from INJ status to OUT which means he isn't IR eligible. Hope they do the same for Jrue. Unfortunate for those that drafted and Yahoo waiting until the last minute.
100% (1) agree 
I'd still have Lin over him, unless you can't afford the FG% hit. He's in the Reggie Jackson zone to me, just depends on how it fits your team. Still a slight risk if Joerger likes Lawson (yuck)
I commented in the wrong area. I meant to post my Collison comment here. So, solid low-end pg2? Very fantasy friendly game. Targeting DC or Lin if I miss on Russell/Dragic
Yeah it is, easier to draft him now

Per Marc Stein from ESPN suspended for 8 games that is good news vs the projections
