  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson (foot) is expected to miss 2-4 weeks.

    Larry Nance makes for a nice short term pickup while the double-double machine known as Tristan Thompson sits out. Kevin Love could be back as well somewhere around that time which could take a bite out of Thompson's rebounding upon his return, but ultimately the big man should have a large role most of the season and should be stashed if possible.

    X-rays came back negative on Tristan Thompson's foot Monday and it's being called a "sprain."

    The good news is that there's no bone or structural damage. A sprained foot could sideline him for a few days and hopefully not weeks. Expect to see Larry Nance Jr. slide into the starting five should Thompson miss time.

  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson scored 12 points on 6-of-7 shooting to go with six rebounds and a steal before leaving Monday's game with a foot injury.

    Thompson was on pace for another solid night before he exited the game with a foot injury and it's a shame because he was rolling before this happened. Check back to see how severe it is and make your move accordingly.

    Tristan Thompson will not return to Monday's game after suffering a left foot injury.

    Thompson has been the only bankable player in Cleveland, so this is a big blow even if it won't affect the team's standing much. Larry Nance Jr. and Ante Zizic are the next men up at center, and Nance will be an immediate add in all leagues if we get word that Thompson has to miss time. Thompson posted 12 points, six rebounds and a steal in 18 minutes before exiting.

    Tristan Thompson was escorted by a trainer to the locker room in Monday's game against the Bucks.

    Thompson has been a godsend for the Cavs lately and losing him for any period of time would be disastrous. Larry Nance Jr. figures to be the biggest beneficiary should Thompson be sidelined long.

  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson quickly erased any memory of his 4 & 6 dud from Friday, torching the Wizards for 23 points, 19 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in Saturday's 116-101 win.

    Thompson predictably bullied the Wizards, who have Thomas Bryant and not much else at center. He played 42 minutes as the Cavs went with an eight-man rotation, and while he can't play that much going forward we should see him surpass 30 mpg with regularity considering the state of the roster. Thompson's going to be one of the league's leading rebounders at the end of the year.

    Tristan Thompson's hot streak crashed to a halt on Friday night as he delivered four points, six rebounds and three assists in 30 minutes of playing time.

    So ends a four-game streak of games with double digit rebounds, which kicked off following an equally-strange tilt with OKC where Thompson corralled just two rebounds in 35 minutes. If you ignore that weird one, this was Thompson's first game with fewer than seven rebounds since October 27. He's been a great find for fantasy owners and should get back to his usual tricks in the next one.

  • Larry Nance Jr. - F - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Larry Nance Jr. will start on Friday vs. the Kings.

    With George Hill now a member of the Bucks, Cedi Osman shifts to small forward and Nance will man the power forward spot. We’ll see how he does starting next to rebound gobbler Tristan Thompson.

    Tristan Thompson dominated the rebounding category in the Warriors-Cavs game on Wednesday as he hauled in 19 rebounds, which also came along with 14 points and three dimes.

    It was not a perfect performance from Thompson, who failed to produce any defensive stats and went 2-for-6 from the line. If you can live with his poor shooting from the free throw line, Thompson has proven to be a reliable source of rebounding in 2018-19.

    Tristan Thompson had a solid outing against the Nets on Monday, finishing with a double-double performance that had 19 points, 14 rebounds, two assists and two blocks.

    This by far the best season Thompson has had in a very long time. The absence of Kevin Love, or anyone reliable for that matter, has pushed the seven-year veteran to renewed heights. He continues to outperform young project Larry Nance Jr., who was quiet tonight with nine points, eight rebounds, a steal, a block and a trey in just 16 minutes.

  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson shot just 6-for-15 on Saturday but still posted a big double-double with 18 points, 19 rebounds and a steal.

    Thompson was saved by his uncharacteristic 6-of-6 mark at the charity stripe. He's been must-own for a while now, and while his stat set won't make sense for all owners TT definitely needs to be in all lineups as a nightly lock for a double-double.

  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson was one of the few bright spots for the struggling Cavs on Friday as he posted 13 points, 12 boards, four dimes and a blocked shot.

    It was pretty much slim pickings as far as fantasy basketball was concerned because he also burned owners by going 5-for-8 from the free throw line, which should not be too much of surprise where Thompson is concerned. Thompson has been a serviceable low-end big man lately, averaging 13.4 points and 11.6 rebounds per game in his last five games.

  • Tristan Thompson - F/C - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Tristan Thompson only scored four points with two rebounds and two assists in 34 minutes in a loss to the Thunder on Wednesday.

    He has been a walking double-double this season and is just outside the top-100, but a performance like this one definitely hurts for fantasy owners. Every starter out-rebounded him as this was a letdown game for Thompson. Expect a bounce back performance next time out there.
