While not stated explicitly, it appears as though Thompson will just be getting the night off to rest in what is the first game of a back-to-back set Thursday and Friday. Thompson has played in every outing since his return from a foot injury on March 20, but he is averaging just 19 minutes per game. Larry Nance and Ante Zizic should both see plenty of extra minutes in the frontcourt Thursday.
Thompson produced 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-6 FT) and five rebounds across 21 minutes in the Cavaliers' 122-113 loss to the Suns on Monday.
Thompson broke out for his best scoring total since returning to action on March 20 after an extended layoff due to a foot injury. The veteran center was coming off a 10-point, 10-rebound double-double versus the Clippers last Saturday, so he appears to be trending in the right direction as the season winds down. The only caveat for fantasy owners remains the somewhat unpredictable allotment of minutes Thompson may see from game to game. Monday, backup Ante Zizic also was productive off the bench (15 points, seven rebounds, two assists, one block) over 14 minutes, and he should continue seeing his fair share of playing time as well down the stretch.
Thompson scored 10 points (4-8 FG, 2-4 FT) while adding 10 rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes during Saturday's 132-108 loss to the Clippers.

Thompson (foot) is without a firm return timetable, Cleveland.com reports. "Any time you are dealing with injury, injuries respond different ways with certain people," coach Larry Drew said. "We are going to continue to let him take his time until he's ready come back out. Not until then. We are not going to take any chances with anything. Just allow him to heal."
Drew's words don't exactly offer a ton of insight into when Thompson might be back, but he'll remain out Thursday and it sounds as though the Cavs are prepared for him to miss additional time. Thompson admitted that he returned too quickly from his initial foot injury earlier in the season, but this time around he'll exercise more caution. "When he's back practicing and going through a full contact practice and when he comes back the next day and says, 'Everything is good. I feel good and there are no setbacks' then he's deemed ready to play," Drew said. "That wasn't the case. He did have a contact practice, came back the following day and was a little sore, a tad sore, which tells us he wasn't ready. As I said before, we are going to allow it to take its course and not going to rush it."
