    The Cavs are have ruled Tristan Thompson (right groin soreness), John Henson (right groin strain) and Ante Zizic (left foot soreness) as out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

    With the trio of big men sitting out, it could again be a lot of Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. tonight. It's worth noting that Jarell Martin is starting at C for the Cavs tonight.

    Tristan Thompson (right groin soreness) has been ruled out of Sunday's preseason game.

    Thompson is a late addition to the injury report, and with Ante Zizic and John Henson already out we could see plenty of Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. today. Thompson had just pulled ahead in the race to start at center, reportedly, so perhaps this opens the door for Nance to reclaim a starting spot. No word on the severity of TT's injury just yet but we'll update you when one comes out.

    Tristian Thompson has been having a strong camp and is expected to start at center next to Kevin Love accoring to Terry Pluto of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

    It is worth noting that there have been conflicting reports coming out of local Cleveland reporting about who the presumed starter in the Cavs frontcourt is set to be. Larry Nance Jr. has recieved similar buzz of becoming a starter this year, justified by his youthful energy on defense and new coach John Beilein's willingness to expiriment with his new roster. If Thompson continues to play well this preseason then those plans to start Nance Jr. may be harder to exicute, making this a position battle worth monitoring in the ramp up to the NBA season.

    Tristan Thompson scored 15 points, along with eight boards and an assist in 29 minutes in Friday's loss to the Pistons.

    Thompson will likely be the starting center for the season and average close to a double-double like last season if healthy. If you're looking for a serviceable big to provide rebounds and solid field goal percentage late in the draft, Thompson can help your team. However he may hurt your free throw percentage and may not block enough shots as a big man.

    Tristan Thompson double-doubled in 26 minutes, putting up 14 points, 10 rebounds, three assists and a steal on Monday in a big victory.

    Thompson started at cener and led the Cavs in minutes. For as ready as many fantasy players are to get veterans out of the way on rebuilding teams, Thompson is still just 28 years old and averaged a double-double last year. He's not necessarily going anywhere soon, and he could make a good late-round pick if you're looking for a serviceable big man.

  • John Henson
    PF, Cleveland Cavaliers

    John Henson practiced for the first time since Nov. 14th, 2018 for the Cavs on Tuesday.

    Henson is expected to compete with Tristan Thompson for backup minutes behind Larry Nance Jr. and Kevin Love this season. Henson has value in deep leagues for his blocks but can otherwise be ignored for now.

    Tristan Thompson will not play for Canada in the 2019 FIBA World Cup.

    This seems like a situation where Thompson is not participating to prepare for the grind of the NBA season in the fall. There was always some uncertainty with his participation but he was among the invitees to Team Canada training camp.

    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.

    Tristan Thompson (rest) has been listed as out against the Hornets on Tuesday.

    Thompson will miss the Cavs finale, as will Kevin Love, so Ante Zizic and Larry Nance Jr. should be in line for big opportunities.

    Tristan Thompson (rest) will not play in Sunday's game against the Spurs.

    Thompson not playing will leave more minutes for the rest of the Cavs frontcourt and puts Larry Nance Jr. in line for another start at Center for the Cavs, as well as allowing added minutes to Ante Zizic.

    Tristan Thompson (rest) returned from a one-game absence on Friday and tallied 12 points and six rebounds in 21 minutes.

    Thompson's just going to get in the way for anyone who is trying to squeeze value out of Ante Zizic. Big Ziz put up 12 points and six rebounds of his own in 17 minutes on the same 4-of-8 shooting line as Thompson, though he hit all four of his freebies while TT went 4-for-6. There's not a ton to see here but Zizic offers higher upside considering Thompson's unlikely to play a full set of minutes again this year.

  • Kevin Love
    F/C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Kevin Love (left shoulder soreness) will not play on Friday vs. the Warriors.

    Fire up your shares of Larry Nance Jr. and Ante Zizic for a game that’ll have a lot of garbage time. It’s also worth noting that Tristan Thompson is no longer on the injury report.

    Tristan Thompson (undisclosed) will not play in Thursday's matchup with the Kings.

    Larry Nance is a strong play to close out the season while Ante Zizic should join Nance in the starting lineup against the Kings. We're not sure what is wrong with Thompson, but we'll surely get an answer pretty soon.

    Tristan Thompson scored 15 points on 6-of-8 shooting to go with five rebounds on Monday.

    Thompson started, but was outplayed yet again, this time by Ante Zizic (14 minutes, 15 points on 5-of-6 shooting with seven rebounds and two assists). We were never attracted to his game and the results are speaking for themselves right now. He's a streaming play at best.
