  • Pistons' Ausar Thompson: Out for Summer League

    Thompson won't participate in Summer League while recovering from a blood clot, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.

    Thompson's rookie season was cut short in March after undergoing treatment for a blood clot. He finished with averages of 8.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 1.1 steals across 25.1 minutes in 63 regular-season games. The Pistons are likely playing it safe with the 21-year-old, as he is expected to ramp up on-court activity during the summer and be ready for training camp in the fall.

  • Pistons' Ausar Thompson: Ruled out for season

    The Pistons announced Wednesday that Thompson will miss the remainder of the season while being treated for a blood clot, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Thompson had missed the last six games due to an undisclosed illness, but Charania's report provides some added clarity on the matter. Though Thompson's first NBA season will come to a close, he's been cleared to resume conditioning and will resume non-contact basketball activities around the end of the regular season. The team plans for him to ramp up over the summer and to return to action for the start of the 2024-25 season. Thompson showed promise during his rookie campaign, averaging 8.8 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.9 blocks in 25.1 minutes per game over 63 appearances.

  • Pistons' Ausar Thompson: Officially out Monday

    Thompson (illness) won't play Monday against Charlotte.

    Thompson was cleared from the Pistons' injury report for Monday's contest after the ailment limited him to 11 minutes in Saturday's loss to Dallas, but he was added back to the report following morning shootaround and will now miss his first game of the season. Quentin Grimes (knee) appears set to return from a four-game absence and could absorb most of Thompson's minutes, while Simone Fontecchio and Evan Fournier could also have higher playing-time floors.

  • Pistons' Ausar Thompson: Back on injury report

    Thompson (illness) is questionable for Monday's game versus Charlotte.

    The Pistons removed Thompson from the injury report Sunday night, only to add him back Monday morning with a questionable tag. If he does get the green light, he'll be a risky play considering he's under the weather.

  • Pistons' Ausar Thompson: Exits early with illness

    Thompson didn't return for the second half of Saturday's 142-124 loss to the Mavericks due to an illness, Johnny Kane of Bally Sports Detroit reports. He finished with four points (1-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-4 FT), five rebounds and one steal across 11 minutes.

    Thompson had played no fewer than 33 minutes in any of his last six appearances, but he'll finish well below that mark Saturday with the illness cutting his night short. The rookie has struggled mightily from the free-throw line and three-point range since moving back into a starting role Feb. 7, but he's been a strong source of defensive stats during that span.
