Thompson scored 12 points (6-7 FG) while adding nine rebounds, two assists and a block in 28 minutes during Thursday's 110-103 loss to the Wizards. He just missed his fourth double-double of the season. Thompson's rebounding has been shaky lately -- he's pulled down more than five boards in only three of seven games in February -- and while his spot in the Cavs' lineup in secure, his weak production makes him a tough player to roster in most fantasy formats.
Thompson scored 10 points (5-7 FG, 0-2 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and two blocks in 31 minutes during Friday's 123-107 win over the Hawks. The Cavs got surprising offense from a few players Friday, but Thompson was not one of them despite a roster depleted due to a flurry of trade-deadline activity. The double-double was just his third of the season, and while Kevin Love's hand injury does create opportunities on offense in the team's frontcourt, Larry Nance may be better equipped to take them than Thompson.
Thompson finished with 17 points (7-9 FG, 3-5 FT), five rebounds, two assists, and one steal in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 140-138 overtime win against the Timberwolves. Thompson turned in a season-high scoring effort and was efficient offensively. Typically he is good for a few more boards, but fantasy owners can't really complain given his contributions on the other end. Barring a blockbuster deal before Thursday's rapidly approaching trade deadline, Thompson is worth a look in most leagues as the Cavaliers' starting center for the foreseeable future.
Thompson notched 12 points (6-9 FG) and nine rebounds across 27 minutes in Tuesday's 116-98 loss to the Magic. Besides a goose egg a few games ago, Thompson has been fairly consistent in his starting role as he is a good bet for eight to 10 points per game and the same total in total rebounds on a given night. Unfortunately, despite Thompson's decent play and efficiency, the Cavs continue to be woeful as a team, so things may continue to be shaken up as the All-Star break approaches.
Thompson finished with zero points (0-5 FG), six rebounds, two blocks, and one assist in 23 minutes during Wednesday's 91-89 win over the Heat. Thompson was added to the starting lineup prior to Kevin Love's hand injury in an effort to bolster the defense. However, it should be no surprise when Thompson struggles on offense, which has never been his strong suit. He will likely be a good source of boards over the next couple months though, that is unless the Cavaliers make a bunch of roster changes in the immediate future.
