Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (eye) won't play Tuesday against Chicago, Sam Amico of SI.com reports.

Thompson suffered the eye injury during Sunday's clash with the Spurs and was unable to return. Andre Drummond and Larry Nance could see an increased workload Tuesday with Thompson out of commission.

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Leaves with eye injury, won't return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson will not return to Sunday night's game due to a right eye injury, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports.

Thompson suffered the injury during the second quarter of Sunday's game against the Spurs, and he exited the game after playing eight minutes and posting two points and three rebounds. Consider Thompson day-to-day as Tuesday's game in Chicago -- the start of a six-game road trip -- approaches.

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Grabs 13 board in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) managed nine points (4-10 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-4 FT), 13 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 38 minutes during Saturday's 104-102 victory over the Nuggets.

Thompson returned after missing the last three games due to a minor knee concern. With Andre Drummond (calf) on the sidelines, Thompson slotted straight into the starting lineup where he had an immediate impact. His value has been on the decline since Drummond arrived, although he is still someone to consider in standard formats, at least until Drummond is back on deck.

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Expected back Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) is expected to return Saturday against the Nuggets, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports.

A knee bruise has kept Thompson out of action for the Cavaliers' last three games. With Andre Drummond (calf) set to miss Saturday's contest, Thompson should be in line for a significant role at center, provided his knee can handle one.

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Questionable Saturday vs. Denver
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) is questionable for Saturday's game against the Nuggets.

A bruised left knee has kept Thompson on the shelf over the past three games, though he was able to practice Friday and could return Saturday. More information may arrive following the Cavaliers' morning shootaround.

March 6, 2020 11:44 AM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Practices fully Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) was a full practice participant Friday, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports.

Thompson has been sidelined the last three games with a left knee but seems to be nearing a return to game action. The 28-year-old should still be considered questionable for Saturday's matchup with the Nuggets until the official injury report is released.

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Remains out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) will not play Wednesday against the Celtics, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports.

Thompson is still recovering from a bruised left knee and will miss a third straight game as a result. With both Thompson and Andre Drummond (calf) unavailable, Larry Nance will once again start alongside Kevin Love.

March 3, 2020 05:48 PM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Questionable Wednesday vs. Celtics
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's action against the Celtics, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

A left knee bruise has prevented Thompson from playing in the Cavaliers' past two games, but he may be able to return to play Boston. More information could arrive following Cleveland's morning shootaround. With Andre Drummond (calf) already ruled out, Thompson could see 30-plus minutes if he's cleared.

March 1, 2020 06:32 PM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: To miss another game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (knee) is listed as out for Monday's game against Utah.

Thompson will miss a second straight game as he battled a bruised left knee. Andre Drummond and Larry Nance should handle most of the minutes at center in his absence.

February 29, 2020 12:56 PM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson will not play in Saturday's game against the Pacers due to a left knee contusion, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Thompson presumably picked up the injury in Friday's 116-104 loss to the Pelicans. His absence figures to open up some extra run for Larry Nance. The big man's next chance to suit up will be Monday against the Jazz.

February 27, 2020 11:08 AM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Double-double in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson amassed 14 points (7-15 FG, 0-2 3Pt), 13 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 108-94 win over the 76ers.

Thompson drew the start in place of Andre Drummond (calf) and has managed to stay relevant despite the midseason trade. It's unclear whether Drummond will remain sidelined for Friday's matchup versus the Pelicans, but, if so, Thompson should be expected to start at center once again.

February 26, 2020 08:24 PM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Starting Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson will start Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Spencer Davies of BasketballInsiders.com reports.

With Andre Drummond (calf) sidelined, Thompson will make his first start since Feb. 1. In nine starts at home since the New Year, he's averaging 6.2 points, 11.6 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 28.2 minutes.

February 25, 2020 08:12 AM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Strong effort off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson scored 15 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-7 FT) while adding nine rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes off the bench during Monday's 125-119 overtime win over the Heat.

The Cavs rallied from a big deficit in the second half only after Andre Drummond hit the bench, allowing both Thompson and Larry Nance to produce solid lines from the second unit. The Cavs' frontcourt rotation remains in flux, but Thompson has kept his production above water, averaging 17.0 points, 9.5 boards, 2.3 assists and 1.3 threes in 26.8 minutes over the last four games.

February 13, 2020 09:04 AM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Big double-double off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson scored a team-high 27 points (11-16 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-4 FT) while adding 11 rebounds, an assist and a steal in 26 minutes off the bench during Wednesday's 127-105 win over the Hawks.

Facing an underpowered Atlanta frontcourt, Thompson was one of three Cleveland bigs to record a double-double on the night, as Andre Drummond and Larry Nance also joined in the fun. Thompson likely would need an injury to Drummond to regain his spot in the starting lineup, and he'll be a risky fantasy option in his new second unit role.

February 10, 2020 04:08 AM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Relegated to bench role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson had just seven points (2-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes during Sunday's 133-92 loss to the Clippers.

Thompson shifted to the bench as Andre Drummond made his debut for the Cavaliers. The signing of Drummond all but puts an end to Thompson's standard league relevance and the 19 minutes here could be on the high side moving forward. The game was a blowout and so Drummond himself played under 30 minutes, something that is unlikely to be a regular occurrence. Thompson can be dropped in 12-team formats and even those in deeper leagues may have to consider other options.

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Off injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (quadriceps) is off the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Clippers.

Thompson has missed the past two games due to right quad soreness, but he's set to make his return Sunday. That said, with Andre Drummond now in the fold, it's unclear what sort of role Thompson will play.

February 6, 2020 04:00 PM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Sticking around in Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Cavaliers intend to retain Thompson (quadriceps) for the remainder of the season rather than buying him out of his contract after he didn't get traded prior to Thursday's deadline, David Aldridge of The Athletic reports.

Given Thompson's status as a veteran on an expiring deal, the rebuilding Cavaliers were eager to move him ahead of the deadline, but the team apparently found a shortage of suitors for his services. Thompson, who has missed the past two games with a sore right quad, is expected to move into a lower-minute reserve role once healthy, as Cleveland made one of the more surprising moves of the trade deadline by bringing in Andre Drummond from the Pistons. Those who had been holding Thompson in 12-team leagues with the hope that he'd be dealt to a favorable situation can feel free to cut bait, as his fantasy value should drop off in a considerable way with Drummond in the fold.

Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Officially out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (quadriceps) will not play Wednesday against the Thunder, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

This absence was expected after Thompson failed to go through the team's morning shootaround. John Henson is expected to pick up a start in place of Thompson, whose next chance to take the court -- assuming he isn't traded before Thursday's deadline -- will come Sunday against the Clippers.

February 5, 2020 12:28 PM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Unlikely to play Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (quad) is doubtful for Wednesday's matchup against the Thunder after failing to go through morning shootaround, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Thompson is expected to be on the shelf for a second straight game as he deals with right quad soreness. In his presumed absence, Larry Nance is a strong candidate to see an expanded role.

February 4, 2020 08:48 PM
Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Status uncertain Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thompson (quadriceps) is listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's matchup with the Thunder.

Thompson is in danger of missing his second consecutive contest due to a quad injury. Larry Nance would be the prime beneficiary should he ultimately remain sidelined.
