  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Triple-doubles in season finale

    Thompson recorded 18 points (8-9 FG, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds, 10 assists, three blocks and three steals in 40 minutes during Sunday's 116-105 win over the Clippers.

    Thompson finished the regular season with a bang, posting his first career triple-double. The Rockets were missing a couple key players Sunday, so Thompson was able to show what he could do with increased usage. His rookie season was full of promise, and Thompson finished the campaign with averages of 9.5 points, 6.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.3 steals on 53.7 percent shooting from the field.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Logs 12th double-double of season

    Thompson chipped in 17 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 15 rebounds and six assists in 35 minutes during Friday's 116-107 victory over the Trail Blazers.

    Thompson has followed a similar arc to Jabari Smith last season, in which a promising rookie began to see increased numbers as the season ended. The 2023 first-round pick is arguably one of the most versatile options on the roster. His 6-foot-7 frame helps him provide defensive aggressiveness in the paint, and he complements that skill set with solid numbers on the other side of the ball. Depending on Houston's off-season moves, Thompson could be poised for a breakout sophomore campaign.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Posts double-double

    Thompson closed with 15 points (6-12 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and two steals over 35 minutes during Thursday's 124-121 loss to the Jazz.

    Thompson recorded his first double-double since March 29 and 11th of the campaign, an impressive tally for a rookie who's not a frontcourt player. Thompson still needs to grow into his game, but the upside is evident. He has the potential to be an elite fantasy option due to his ability to fill the stat sheet on any given night.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Shoves Kleber, gets tossed

    Thompson was ejected after picking up a Flagrant 2 foul in the first quarter of Sunday's game against Dallas, Michael Shapiro of reports. Thompson finished with five points (1-1 FG, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and three assists in eight minutes.

    Thompson got into a scuffle with Maxi Kleber under the basket with four minutes remaining in the first quarter of Sunday's game, and Thompson was ejected upon review of the play. Initially jockeying for position while away from the ball, Thompson then squared up and brought his forearm to Kleber's neck region -- a thoroughly enforced aspect of officiating where unnecessary contact leads to ejections.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Gets green light

    Thompson (ankle/finger) is available and will start Sunday's game against the Mavericks.

    As expected, Thompson has been upgraded from probable to available and will return to the starting lineup after a one-game absence. Jeff Green will return to the bench. Over his last 14 appearances (12 starts), Thompson has averaged 14.1 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 blocks in 28.1 minutes per game.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Probable for Sunday

    Thompson (ankle/finger) is probable for Sunday's game against the Mavericks.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Out Friday with two injuries

    Thompson has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Heat with a left ankle sprain and a right fifth finger tendon injury.

    The finger issue is a new concern for Thompson, whose status heading into Friday was already uncertain after he rolled his left ankle in the final minutes of Thursday's 119-104 loss to Golden State. The ankle injury still looks to be the greater concern for Thompson, and with the Rockets' hopes of securing a spot in the Western Conference Play-In Tournament beginning to fade, the team could take a cautious approach with the prized rookie heading into the final week of the regular season. Thompson has thrived since Alperen Sengun (ankle/knee) went down with an injury in early March, averaging 14.1 points, 8.7 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.6 blocks in 28.1 minutes over his last 14 appearances (12 starts). Cam Whitmore, Aaron Holiday and Jeff Green are candidates for increased playing time Friday in Thompson's absence.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Rolls left ankle Thursday

    Thompson appeared to roll his left ankle during Thursday's 133-110 loss to Golden State and left the game for good with 4:44 remaining in the fourth quarter, Jackson Gatlin of the Locked On Podcast Network reports. He finished with eight points (3-7 FG, 2-3 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal in 30 minutes.

    Thompson had a slight limp on his way to the locker room, but he was able to walk under his own power. Houston's chances of securing a spot in the Western Conference Play-In Tournament took a major hit with Thursday's loss, so the Rockets could be extra cautious if Thompson isn't 100 percent for Friday's game against the Heat. For now, the rookie can be considered questionable for that contest.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Second straight double-double

    Thompson finished with 18 points (6-12 FG, 6-8 FT), 14 rebounds, five assists, one block and two steals across 40 minutes during Friday's 101-100 win over the Jazz.

    Thompson is making the most of the opportunity to start and posted his second consecutive double-double. The rookie has started in each of Houston's last nine contests, averaging 15.9 points, 9.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.3 blocks per game in that stretch. Fantasy managers will certainly hope for Thompson to continue racking up stats as the end of the regular season approaches.

  • Rockets' Amen Thompson: Records monster double-double

    Thompson had 25 points (10-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 5-6 FT), 15 rebounds, four assists and one steal in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 132-126 overtime win over the Thunder.

    Thompson moved to the starting lineup on March 12 and has looked productive, showing the ability to make an impact on both ends of the court. He has three double-doubles in his last eight starts, and he should remain a reliable two-way presence for an on-the-rise Rockets team. Thompson is averaging 15.4 points, 8.8 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 1.1 steals per game during Houston's ongoing 10-game winning streak.
