Tristan Thompson (rest) did not play on Tuesday, meaning his season wraps with averages of 10.9 points, a career-high 10.2 rebounds, a career-high 2.0 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.4 blocks on .529 from the field and .642 from the line.
Thompson ended up with 43 games played but timed them right, as he was a must-start option for most of the first half after Kevin Love went down. He missed a ton of time with right foot soreness, as it first caused a 10-game absence before Thompson sat out for 26 consecutive games later in the year. TT posted top-150 value when he was on the court but all the missed time leaves him with top-235 total value. You’ll also need to remember that those numbers are dragged down but the limited-minute appearances he had to close the season. He’s still not a great fit for a team that’s rebuilding, and we’d bet against a repeat performance between Cleveland’s likely offseason maneuvering and better health for Kevin Love next season.
