Tristan Thompson (foot) ended up playing on Wednesday night against the Pelicans, though he wasn't up to his usual standards with six points on 2-of-9 shooting to go with 10 rebounds and five assists in 29 minutes.
The good news is that Thompson played after he was determined to be a game-time decision shortly before tip-off. He's going to have some extra opportunity to work with Larry Nance Jr. sidelined and it'll raise his ceiling a shade, but it's not like you're putting a healthy Thompson on your benches anyway. Expect the next matchup to be a bit kinder.
