Description: The Nets have signed center Jason Collins to a 10-day contract, according to yahoosports.com.
Insight: He doesn't have any fantasy value but it's a major story as Collins is the first active openly gay player in the NBA. He'll occupy no more than 10 minutes per game for Brooklyn. It's his second stint with the organization after playing with the Nets from 2001-08.

Insight: He wouldn't have any fantasy value but it's a major story as Collins would become the first active openly gay player in the NBA. Collins last played for the Wizards in 2013, averaging 0.7 ppg over six appearances.

Description: Jason Collins is nursing an Achilles injury and did not practice on Thursday. Despite the injury, Collins is still expected to play Friday night against the Celtics.
Insight: Collins is averaging 4 ppg and 4 rpg in the series and until Zaza Pachulia returns from a foot injury, he's the best the Hawks have at the center position.

Description: Hawks Jason Collins received the bulk of the playing time at center for Atlanta in Game 1 of the series with Boston with Zaza Pachulia and Al Horford sidelined by injury.
Insight: Collins played well as a replacement, playing good defense on Kevin Garnett, scoring six point and pulling down five rebounds. Those are not, however, fantasy-worthy numbers.
