Thompson tallied 12 points (4-9 FG, 4-8 FT), 12 rebounds and a steal in Tuesday night's play-in win over the Wizards.

The Celtics started Robert Williams at center, but he played only 14 minutes while dealing with an injury. Thompson saw 30 minutes of action off the bench, reeling in six offensive boards in the process. Williams figures to be more of a factor against Brooklyn in Round 1, but for now, Thompson looks to be the slightly safer fantasy option of the two.
