    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Posts 15 points, 13 boards, four assists Wednesday

    Thompson recorded 15 points (6-6 FG, 3-3 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists, and one block in 34 minutes during the Cavaliers' 120-111 win over the Lakers on Wednesday. Thompson has grabbed double digit rebounds in four straight games, and he now has 14 double-doubles on the season. Over the last eight games, Thompson has earned 31 minutes or more in all but one contest, and he continues to start at center over Timofey Mozgov.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Rips down 15 boards, but goes scoreless

    Thompson tallied no points (0-4 FG), but collected 15 boards (seven offensive) and had one assist over 33 minutes in Saturday's 99-84 win over the Pelicans. Thompson has seen much of his time at center this season, but moved over to power forward Saturday with the bigger Timofey Mozgov entering the starting five in place of the injured Kevin Love (quad). Though Love's absence created a void on offense, the trio of Kyrie Irving, LeBron James, and J.R. Smith combined for 76 of the Cavs' 99 points, leaving little opportunity for Thompson to increase his shot total. That didn't prevent Thompson from doing what he does best in attacking the glass on both the offensive and defensive end, and he'll continue to remain an excellent source of rebounds even once Love is back on the court.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Can't get it going on offense in Friday loss

    Thompson had three points (1-3 FG, 1-2), 10 rebounds, two blocks and a steal in 32 minutes on Friday in a loss to the Celtics. Thompson has struggled on the offensive end in the last two games, as he's only scored a combined seven points on seven shots. This is somewhat surprising since Thompson had double-digit totals in three of the previous four games and Kevin Love even exited the game early on Friday. Right now, it seems like everything on Thompson is trending in the wrong direction, but the minutes he's playing are pretty safe. There's no need to let go of him on your season-long roster, but he is now becoming a liability in DFS.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Tallies double-double in Monday's overtime win

    Thompson tallied 14 points (7-7 FG, 0-1 FT) with 12 rebounds during 41 minutes in Monday's 111-106 overtime win against the Pacers. Thompson has really solidified his spot in the starting five after setting a season high in terms of minutes Monday. It was his third double-double in five games and third straight with double-digit scoring. Cleveland is rolling and Thompson doesn't seem to be going anywhere, so employ him in daily formats while his salary is affordable.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Double-doubles Friday

    Thompson totaled 11 points (3-5 FG, 5-5 FT), 14 rebounds, and one block in 31 minutes during the Cavaliers' 114-106 win over the Pistons on Friday. Thompson has seen 31, 28, and 34 minutes respectively over the last three games while Timofey Mozgov has gotten 19, 16, and 15 minutes. It's clear coach Tyronn Lue prefers to run Thompson for the vast majority of minutes available at center. As a result, Thompson will likely possess solid value in most leagues going forward.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Scores season-high 19 points in Monday's win

    Thompson scored a season-high 19 points (8-10 FG, 3-7 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds and two assist over 34 minutes in Monday's 114-107 win against the T-Wolves. After registering just a point with five rebounds in Saturday's loss to the Bulls, Thompson turned in a dominating performance against Minnesota's young front court. He did all his work down low and was particularly strong on the offensive glass, accounting for seven of his 12 rebounds. The T-Wolves hung in the game long enough and Thompson was called upon by new head coach Tyronn Lue to play big minutes at center, but that only means Thompson will have to earn those minutes, as usual.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Will draw the start Monday

    Thompson will draw the start Monday versus the Timberwolves, Alan Horton of WCCO 830 AM reports. After starting nine consecutive games, Thompson has played a reserve role for the last five contests. However, he will return to the lineup Monday as new head coach Tyronn Lue toys around with the lineup. Thompson averaged 9.6 points and 8.9 rebounds in 31.9 minutes per game during his previous starting stint. The center situation in Cleveland will need to be monitored going forward.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Notches double-double in Wednesday's win

    Thompson notched a double-double off the bench in Wednesday's 91-78 win against the Nets, scoring 14 points (6-8 FG, 2-2 FT) with 10 rebounds during 28 minutes. After getting embarrassed by the Warriors on Monday, the Cavaliers didn't need any motivation against an inferior Nets squad. Thompson was fortunate for that as he received a nice boost in minutes with Cleveland not needing to play any of its go-to guys for very long. He's proven when he does get the PT he can average around a double-double a game.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Plays 12 minutes in Monday's loss

    Thompson totaled two points (0-1 FG, 2-2 FT) and two rebounds in 12 minutes during the Cavaliers' 132-98 blowout loss versus the Warriors on Monday. Thompson has seen 34 minutes combined over the last two games since his demotion to the bench. If his minutes pick back up, he could continue to post solid scoring and rebounding numbers. However, his inconsistencies likely make him more attractive in deeper leagues, especially since he contributes very little in the other categories.

    Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: To come off the bench Friday

    Thompson will come off the bench for Friday's matchup with the Rockets, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports. Thompson has started the previous nine games for Cleveland, but will return to a reserve role Friday. Timofey Mozgov will replace him in the starting unit. It is unclear what triggered the switch, but it is likely matchup based. The situation will need to be monitored going forward.
