Tristan Thompson

Fantasy News

  • Larry Nance Jr. - F - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. (right MCL sprain) will play on Friday and come off the bench.

    Nance was returning mid-round value before his injury and has a good chance to do so again as Tristan Thompson (left foot) continues to miss games with no timetable to return. He should be owned in standard leagues while Ante Zizic’s top-120 run over the past few weeks might be coming to an end but is a hold until we see how it plays out.

  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    As of Friday's reports, Tristan Thompson (left foot soreness) will miss at least two more weeks.

    Thompson will continue to miss time with this foot issue, which is good news for Larry Nance owners. Nance is the better option, but the Cavs are determined to make Thompson a thing, so he continues to get heavy playing time when healthy.

  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson (left foot soreness) has been ruled out of Friday's game.

    This will be Thompson's fifth straight game on the sidelines and the Cavs haven't said anything about his recovery. He's also been ruled out a full day in advance each time, and with the team playing for lottery odds we wouldn't bet on him being rushed back. Ante Zizic and a returning Larry Nance Jr. will split the center minutes in the meantime, with Nance being a must-own player.

    Tristan Thompson (left foot soreness) is listed as out on Wednesday against the Celtics.

    This means Thompson will miss his fourth straight game with foot soreness. The Cavs have been ruling him out at least a day in advance each time, which isn't a good sign until his status changes. Ante Zizic is a great short-term add with high potential.

    Tristan Thompson (left foot soreness) has been ruled out for Monday's game.

    Thompson will now miss his third straight game with his foot soreness. He's also been ruled out a day in advance, which is never a good sign. It looks like Ante Zizic will be in for another high minute game, while Channing Frye should chip in a few minutes off the bench.

    Tristan Thompson (left foot soreness) is listed as out for Saturday's game.

    Thompson did not play on Friday night either, so it seems this is an injury issue, rather than a back-to-back games issue. He's still listed with just soreness, so we wouldn't worry too much. With the trade deadline coming up, the last thing the Cavaliers need is assets getting injured. Ante Zizic will have a matchup against Nikola Jokic and is a decent value play in DFS.

    Tristan Thompson (foot soreness) is not expected to play in Friday's game versus the Jazz.

    Thompson popped up on the injury report and it looks like his foot is bothering him again. It is likely just routine rest due to soreness as the Cavs are on the front end of a back-to-back and face Denver tomorrow. Ante Zizic will likely draw the start at center with both Thompson and Larry Nance Jr. out and becomes an interesting value play for DFS.

    The Cavs have reportedly fielded multiple calls on the availability of Tristan Thompson.

    Thompson has had a terrific season for an awful team, and the fact that he's remained focused, hard-working and a source of quality leadership to the team's younger players hasn't gone unnoticed. The big man is on a hefty contract so it wouldn't be a throwaway deal if he were to be moved, but there's little doubt that he could provide a huge boost on the glass for any number of playoff hopefuls. A trade would probably hurt his fantasy value so his fantasy owners should hope that nothing happens.

    Tristan Thompson had 15 points with 14 rebounds and two blocks on 7-of-14 shooting in a 101-95 win over the Lakers on Sunday.

    Thompson is typically a late-round guy and is worth owning in standard leagues as long as he is starting for the Cavs. He is a great rebounding specialist and is just outside the top-100 on the season. The Ante Zizic run is over as he had zero points and four rebounds with Thompson back so he can be sent to the wire.

    Tristan Thompson had the unenviable task of containing a younger, more athletic Clint Capela on Friday and was limited by foul trouble, mustering just six points, five boards, two assists and two steals.

    Thompson failed to post a standard-league worthy line, but considering his mismatch we can give him a pass. Considering he context the Cavs are in, T.T. manages remain relevant while both Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. remain sidelined.

    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.

    Tristan Thompson successfully made it through pregame workout and is good to go for Wednesday.

    The Cavs already are missing Larry Nance (knee), so he will have his hands full. If his foot holds up, expect Thompson to come up with a double-double via points and boards but don't expect to be enthused by his accuracy from the line.

    Tristan Thompson felt some soreness in his foot and will go through a pregame workout to see if he can play on Wednesday.

    This isn't insignificant as Thompson missed multiple weeks with a foot injury earlier in the year. If he ended up being unable to play it'd be a field day for Anthony Davis and Julius Randle while poor Ante Zizic gets thrown to the wolves (err, Pelicans). Check back for another update.

    Tristan Thompson shot 6-for-9 from the field for 15 points with 13 boards, five assists and two blocks in 35 minutes against the Pacers on Tuesday.

    Thompson was unsure coming in to this one, still dealing with a foot injury, but he was taken off the injury report and looked spry in big minutes. He has recovered from his injury and should be back to the old Thompson with big man stats galore.

    Tristan Thompson isn't on the injury report ahead of Tuesday's game.

    Thompson sat out practice on Monday but it sounded like a day off more than anything. Get him active for a matchup against Myles Turner and/or Domantas Sabonis.
