Thompson has seen extremely limited action so far as a Warrior, averaging 2.0 points, 2.0 rebounds and 5.7 minutes in six games played this season. Thompson's playing time has clearly been affected by Golden State's frontcourt depth, as he sits behind Draymond Green on the depth chart and appears to have fallen into a timeshare for backup minutes with Marreese Speights and James Michael McAdoo. Thompson is not a reliable fantasy player with the amount of action he has been seeing.
Thompson did not play in Saturday's win over New Orleans. This is the second time in three games that Thompson has been DNP-CD for the Warriors.
Warriors new forward/center Jason Thompson played just six minutes in the blowout defeat of Houston on Friday night. He managed four points and three rebounds. Thompson, who was acquired via trade in the offseason, didn't play Tuesday and followed that up with a small fill-in role Friday. At the time Golden State acquired him, we knew the depth in the front court would make it hard for Thompson to approach the playing time he was getting in Sacramento, but 3.0 minutes per game is less than we anticipated.
Warriors big man Jason Thompson scored nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with five rebounds, two assists and two blocked shots in 19 minutes Thursday night against Houston. It marked his most productive game of the preseason. More playing time will be available if Andrew Bogut misses an extended amount of time with a broken nose, but he's expected to wear a mask and play through it to start the regular season.
Forward Jason Thompson made his preseason, and Warriors, debut Thursday night against Portland. He had two points, seven rebounds and one blocked shot in 15 minutes. Thompson, who sat out the preseason opener Tuesday, got run in both halves but is still learning the ball-motion offense. He's a bit hesitant with respect to taking shots, but he was a presence inside with the boards and blocks.
