Collison is emerging as the Thunder's top interior reserve. The past week, Collison has played some game-on-the-line, fourth-quarter minutes. He said an ankle injury that's hampered him since training camp is 90 to 95 percent healed.

“It feels pretty good but it was still a little tender in our last home game (last Sunday),” Collison said. “Hopefully it will keep improving. It depends on what happens in the game. If I jam it or something it's sore the rest of the night.”

WEAVER UPDATE

Guard Kyle Weaver averaged 4.3 points and 2.3 rebounds in 56 games his rookie season. He started 19 games. With Shaun Livingston sidelined (arthroscopic knee surgery) Weaver will be active every game. He scored 11 points in his season debut Wednesday night after the Magic built a 30-point lead.

“The biggest thing is to be ready,” Weaver said. “It was good to get in that first time to get the feel back. It was good to get to play a whole quarter. I made a couple of shots which helped my rhythm.”
