  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Returns from suspension vs. Houston

    Thompson amassed five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal over 15 minutes during Saturday's 117-103 loss to the Rockets.

    It was Thompson's first NBA action since Jan. 22, as the big man served a 25-game suspension for violating the league's Anti-Drug program. Before the suspension, Thompson was typically the first big man off the bench and had a bigger role when Evan Mobley (ankle) missed 22 games after undergoing surgery on his knee in December. Mobley is expected to miss more time after spraining his left ankle against the Celtics on March 5, so Thompson's return comes at an opportune time for the Cavaliers.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Set to return Saturday

    Thompson (suspension) is available for Saturday's game versus the Rockets.

    Thompson is set to return to action Saturday after missing the last 25 games due to a suspension for violating the NBA's Anti-Drug Program. The veteran big man is averaging 4.6 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 15.4 minutes across his last 10 appearances.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Suspended 25 games

    The NBA announced Tuesday that Thompson has been suspended 25 games for violating the league's Anti-Drug Program, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Thompson has been serving as the top backup to starting center Jarrett Allen of late, but he likely would have been at risk at dropping out of the rotation once Evan Mobley (knee) likely returns to action shortly before the All-Star break. With Mobley's return still likely a week or more away, however, the Cavaliers will presumably turn to Damian Jones to fill minutes at center when Allen is off the floor. Thompson is first eligible to return from suspension March 16 versus the Rockets.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Tossed from Thursday's game

    Thompson was ejected from Thursday's game versus the Nets after getting into an altercation with Nic Claxton, C.J. Holmes of the New York Daily News reports.

    Thompson will finish Thursday's game with one point (1-4 FT), two rebounds and one steal in 11 minutes before getting ejected. Damian Jones could receive extended minutes behind Jarrett Allen as Cleveland's backup center in Thompson's absence.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Secures seven rebounds off bench

    Thompson racked up six points (3-5 FG), seven rebounds and three assists across 21 minutes during Thursday's 123-104 loss to the Pelicans.

    While Thompson was unable to score in double figures for a second consecutive game Thursday, he posted his second-highest rebound total of the season as part of a well-rounded stat line. With Evan Mobley (knee) sidelined, Thompson has played double-digit minutes off the bench in seven of the Cavaliers' last eight matchups. During that time, he averaged 5.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in 16.3 minutes per game.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Double-doubles off bench

    Thompson racked up 10 points (5-7 FG), 13 rebounds, two assists and two blocks over 29 minutes during Monday's 104-94 loss to Orlando.

    Evan Mobley (knee) missed his second game in a row for Cleveland, and Jarrett Allen fouled out after just 15 minutes. Dean Wade started for Mobley and played well, but Thompson had an even bigger impact in relief of Allen, posting season-best marks in points (10) and rebounds (13) en route to his first double-double of the campaign. With Mobley's status up in the air for Tuesday against the Celtics, Thompson could get another decent opportunity for minutes.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Limited again Wednesday

    Thompson registered one point (1-2 FT), three rebounds and one block in six minutes during Wednesday's 121-111 win over the Magic.

    Thompson played fewer than 10 minutes for the third straight game, continuing his disappointing season. As long as the Cavaliers are healthy, Thompson is simply too far down the pecking order to have any chance at playing meaningful minutes. Hence, there is nothing to see here in terms of fantasy value.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Minimal playing time

    Thompson is averaging 2.2 points, 2.4 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.3 blocks and 0.1 steals in 9.2 minutes over nine contests this season.

    Thompson has seemingly overtaken Damian Jones as the backup big man, as Thompson has four games with at least 11 minutes since the turn of the month. Expect the 32-year-old center to continue his bench role behind Jarrett Allen for the foreseeable future.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Scores six off bench

    Thompson accumulated six points (3-4 FG) and five rebounds in 13 minutes during Wednesday's 95-89 win over the Knicks.

    Thompson wasn't part of the Cavaliers' rotation over the first two games of the season, but he played eight minutes during his season debut against the Pacers on Saturday and has now played double-digit minutes in back-to-back matchups. While it's been encouraging to see the veteran get some playing time, it doesn't appear as though he'll have a fantasy-relevant role during his first year back in Cleveland.

  • Cavaliers' Tristan Thompson: Joining Cavaliers

    Thompson is finalizing a deal with the Cavaliers on Monday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Entering his age-32 season, Thompson will provide the Cavaliers with some veteran leadership and frontcourt depth. He's not guaranteed to be in the rotation, however, and he's unlikely to make a big fantasy impact. Thompson will compete with Damian Jones for backup minutes behind Evan Mobley and Jarrett Allen.

  • Lakers' Tristan Thompson: Left off injury report

    Thompson (recently signed) isn't listed on the Lakers' injury report for Tuesday's Play-In Tournament matchup against the Timberwolves.

    Thompson and Shaquille Harrison were both signed to one-year contracts Sunday, but they were both unavailable for the Lakers' regular-season finale against Utah. While it appears like both recently signed players will suit up Tuesday, neither is guaranteed any playing time, especially if LeBron James (foot), Anthony Davis (foot) and D'Angelo Russell (foot) all suit up as expected.

  • Lakers' Tristan Thompson: Won't debut Sunday

    Thompson, who agreed to a one-year contract with the Lakers earlier Sunday, won't play in the team's regular-season finale versus the Jazz, Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Thompson will be available for the Lakers during the club's upcoming postseason run, but he won't be asked to play any minutes until he gets at least one or two practices under his belt. The 6-foot-9 center most recently appeared in 51 games in 2021-22 between stints with the Kings, Pacers and Bulls, averaging 6.0 points, 5.1 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 15.7 minutes per contest. He could challenge Wenyen Gabriel and Mo Bamba for the top backup role behind starting center Anthony Davis.
