Thompson was waived by the Sixers on Wednesday, Derek Bodner of Phillymag.com reports.
Even with injuries depleting some of the Sixers' depth on the wing, Thompson was unable to take advantage of any additional time on the floor. To go along with that, the Sixers are hurting for depth at point guard, so they may have needed to free up a spot to sign another player to compete with Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) and T.J. McConnell. Thompson should draw some interest from teams hurting for depth on the wing, but if not, he could try a stint in the D-League or head overseas temporarily.
Thompson accrued seven points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt), one rebound and one assist across 21 minutes in a 100-83 loss to the Jazz on Thursday.
After failing to play in the 76ers' previous game Monday against the Kings, Thompson reentered the rotation Thursday with Gerald Henderson (hip) sitting out. Henderson will remain out again Friday against the Nuggets, which should afford Thompson another 20-minute workload, but Thompson will likely see his playing time fall by the wayside as soon as Henderson is available to play again.
Thompson (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in a 102-100 loss to the Kings on Monday.
Coach Brett Brown leaned on starters Robert Covington and Gerald Henderson and reserves Nik Stauskas and Dario Saric to cover all the playing time at the two wing spots, leaving no room for Thompson in the rotation. That's likely to be an issue so long as Brown's decision to start Jahlil Okafor and Joel Embiid alongside one another continues to force Saric to spend more time at small forward, so don't expect Thompson's playing time to trend up unless one of the aforementioned players succumbs to an injury.
Thompson (knee) will be available to play in Sunday's game against the Nets, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
Thompson missed Friday's game against the Lakers with knee soreness, but as expected, he'll be back on the court for Sunday's matchup with the Nets. He's averaging 18.6 minutes per game this season, but has logged 15 minutes or less in four of the Sixers' last five contests, making him an unappealing fantasy option in most fantasy leagues.
Thompson (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Nets, Derek Bodner of Philadelphia Magazine reports.
Thompson was unable to play in Friday night's loss to the Lakers due to soreness in his knee, but he was able to take part in Saturday's walkthrough, and his probable designation suggests that will be the extent of his absence. Thompson's playing time has dipped a bit of late, as he finished with more than 17 minutes just twice over the last eight games.
