    The Cavs have interest in signing Tristan Thompson to a team-friendly deal this summer, per Cleveland.com's Chris Fedor.

    The Cavs have quite the frontcourt logjam on their hands, assuming Andre Drummond opts into his massive deal for next year. Even so, they recognize that Thompson has been a great teammate and is a strong voice in the locker room, and were discussing a contract extension earlier in the season. Ultimately Thompson is an unrestricted free agent so the final call is his.

    Tristan Thompson (eye) is listed out for Tuesday's game vs. the Bulls.

    Thompson left Sunday's game early after being poked in the eye and it is serious enough to keep him out of Tuesday's contest. Thompson is tough to trust with the crowded front court in Cleveland. He seems to be behind Andre Drummond, Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. in the pecking order. Thompson can be a low-upside option for big-man stats in 14-team leagues, but you're probably better off streaming his roster spot as he is tough to trust on any given night.

    Tristan Thompson was poked in the eye on Sunday against the Spurs and will not return to the game.

    He ends the night with two points and three rebounds on 1-of-3 shooting from the field and 0-of-2 from the free-throw line over eight minutes of action. It is so difficult to determine who will play for the Cavs on a night-to-night basis, and relying upon Thompson under these circumstances is a real roll of the dice.

    Tristan Thompson (left knee contusion) returned on Saturday and scored nine points with 13 rebounds, five assists and two blocks in 38 minutes.

    Thompson clearly has no restrictions, playing big minutes after returning from a three-game absence. Thompson has late-round value in standard leagues when the Cavs have an injury in the front court, but he will be a low-upside option for 14-team leagues at best when the Cavs are healthy.

    Tristan Thompson (left knee contusion) will be back in action on Saturday against the Nuggets.

    Thompson has missed the previous three games but can be plugged into most fantasy lineups with Andre Drummond ruled out again. TT's role is dwindling and he'll likely struggle to maintain standard-league relevance when everyone is healthy, but while Cleveland is shorthanded you can make the case for him as a lineup fixture for anyone in need of big man stats.

    Tristan Thompson (left knee contusion) has been listed questionable for Saturday's game against the Nuggets.

    Thompson could be back on Saturday after missing the past three games, but it is really a toss-up in terms of Thompson's game-to-game status. He was playing well before going down, but he remains in a loaded situation when Kevin Love, Andre Drummond and Larry Nance Jr. are all active. Thompson is still carrying some 12-team value, although you can probably find hotter names on the wire that you know are playing on a nightly basis.

    Tristan Thompson (left knee contusion) was able to get through Friday's practice session.

    His status for Saturday remains up in the air but this is still a positive step forward. He's missed the last three games with the issue but Thompson would be in line for big nights if he can somehow get back on the floor before Andre Drummond, who also returned to practice today. There's a logjam up front in Cleveland, but all four of TT, Drummond, Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. have been able to maintain standard-league value to this point, so wait and see how things settle when everyone is fully healthy.

    Tristan Thompson has been ruled out of Wednesday's matchup vs. the Celtics as he nurses a bruised left knee.

    Thompson will join Andre Drummond (calf) on the sideline for Wednesday's contest which provides ample opportunity for Larry Nance Jr. He has become a must-own player across formats and could be worth a look in DFS matchups. The Cavs don't play again until Saturday which gives Thompson and Drummond an additional two days to recover.

    Tristan Thompson (left knee contusion) is being listed as questionable ahead of Wednesday's game against the Celtics.

    Andre Drummond (calf) is being ruled out already, so there will be minutes to go around should Thompson be able to play through the knee pain. Kevin Love and Larry Nance Jr. would be in line for even busier nights if Thompson can't play.

    Tristan Thompson (left knee contusion) is listed as out ahead of Monday's game against the Jazz.

    Andre Drummond will have a chance to repeat his success from Saturday. TT had been splitting the minutes evenly enough to maintain his own fantasy value but he's going to be tough to trust next week unless the Cavs come out and say this is a short-term situation.

    Tristan Thompson (left knee contusion) will not play against the Pacers on Saturday.

    Thompson is coming off an underwhelming performance on Friday with 15 points and five rebounds in 32 minutes while filling in as the starter for Andre Drummond. The extent of the injury is unknown but it may also just be a rest day on a back-to-back. Thompson should come off the bench on most nights when he returns but will get the start whenever Kevin Love or Andre Drummond are held out.

    Andre Drummond will remain out on Friday as he continues to deal with a left calf strain.

    Drummond has lost a significant chunk of playing time in Cleveland and now will miss his second consecutive contest. We should see more from Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance on Friday.

    Tristan Thompson got the start on Wednesday and picked up another double-double, ending the night with 14 points, 13 rebounds, two assists, a steal and a block.

    Thompson will continue to put up numbers as long as he gets the minutes. If Andre Drummond continues to miss time, Thompson would be a major beneficiary in an already crowded Cavaliers frontcourt.

    Tristan Thompson will draw the start for Wednesday's game vs. the Sixers with Andre Drummond (left calf strain) sidelined.

    Thompson will likely see additional value for as long as he gets starter-level minutes. However, the frontcourt situation is crowded in Cleveland as they also have Larry Nance Jr., Kevin Love and Cedi Osman.

  • Andre Drummond
    C, Cleveland Cavaliers

    Andre Drummond (left calf strain) has been ruled out of Wednesday's game.

    It has not been a smooth transition for Drummond after being traded to the Cavs, and he hasn't exceeded 29 minutes since the Pistons dealt him. Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, and Larry Nance Jr. could each receive a small bump in playing time against the Sixers. Cedi Osman will likely be relied upon more as well.
