Rockets' Amen Thompson: Takes part in non-contact work
Thompson (ankle) was able to take part in non-contact drills during practice Sunday but has yet to be cleared for contact or scrimmage work, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Thompson's involvement in non-contact work represents a step forward after he had previously been limited to individual drills, but the rookie looks as though he still has a few more hurdles to clear in his recovery from a right ankle sprain, which he suffered Nov. 1. According to Feigen, coach Ime Udoka said Thompson will likely first play with the G League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers before rejoining the Rockets. The Vipers play their next games Thursday and Friday, so if Thompson is able to gain clearance for contact in the next couple of days, he could be available to play in either of those contests....

Rockets' Amen Thompson: Could return soon
Coach Ime Udoka said Wednesday that Thompson (ankle) is ramping up and could be cleared to practice "soon," Danielle Lerner of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Thompson has been sidelined since Nov. 1 with a Grade 2 right ankle sprain. He'll likely remain out for at least a few more games, as Udoka stated Thompson would, at the earliest, return to practice sometime next week, but it appears the rookie will be back in action before long, barring a setback. However, Thompson wasn't off to a fantasy-friendly start, averaging just 6.3 points, 2.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 16.8 minutes across his first four NBA appearances.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Amen Thompson: Not yet ready for practice
Thompson (ankle) hasn't been cleared to resume practicing as of Tuesday and remains out indefinitely, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
Thompson has been sidelined Nov. 1 with a Grade 2 right ankle sprain. He suffered an injury of the same grade to his left ankle during the Las Vegas Summer League that entailed a 2-to-4-week recovery, but Thompson looks as though he'll require a longer period of time to overcome his latest ankle sprain. At this stage, Thompson's absence looks as though it'll stretch into December, and a target date for his return to game action won't become clear until after he gets in at least a couple of practices under his belt....

Thompson will miss an eighth straight game due to a right ankle sprain.

Rockets' Amen Thompson: Sheds boot
Thompson (ankle) was spotted Tuesday without a boot on his injured right ankle, Coty M. Davis of SI.com reports.
The extent of Thompson's rehab progress remains unclear, but this can be viewed as a positive step. The rookie suffered a Grade 2 ankle sprain last week and was given a 2-to-4-week return timeline. The team should provide further updates soon, but fantasy managers can likely leave Thompson on the bench for Week 3.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Amen Thompson: Will miss time with Grade 2 sprain
Rockets head coach Ime Udoka said after Wednesday's 128-119 win over the Hornets that Thompson suffered a Grade 2 ankle sprain during the contest, Ben DuBose of USA Today reports.
Thompson sustained a Grade 2 left ankle sprain in the Las Vegas Summer League that resulted in a 2-to-4-week recovery period, so he's likely facing a similar timeline this time around while tending to an injury to his other ankle. The injury is a tough break for the rookie No. 4 overall pick, who had averaged 16.8 minutes per game through his first four NBA outings while struggling to carve out playing time in a deep backcourt. Though the ability Thompson showed in the preseason to rack up rebounds, assists and steals would make him an enticing fantasy option if he could consistently receive 25-plus minutes, the ankle injury will delay any opportunity he might have to seize hold of a such a role. The 20-year-old profiles as more of a luxury stash in most 12- or 14-team redraft leagues at this time.... See More ... See Less

Rockets' Amen Thompson: Coming off bench
Thompson will come off the bench for Friday's preseason game against the Heat.
The Rockets went with their projected Opening Night lineup for Friday's final exhibition. Thompson, a first-round rookie who's just 20 years old, has shown a lot of promise in the preseason, but it wasn't all pretty as he continues to learn the ropes.... See More ... See Less
Rockets' Amen Thompson: Will start Wednesday
Thompson will start Wednesday's preseason contest against the Spurs, Jackson Gatlin of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.
With Fred VanVleet (rest), Dillon Brooks (rest) and Jalen Green (toe) out, Thompson and Cam Whitmore will start in Houston's backcourt. The rookies have impressed thus far and will certainly get an extended look versus San Antonio, but they'll likely return to bench roles for Friday's preseason finale versus Miami, which is expected to be a dress rehearsal for the regular season....

Rockets' Amen Thompson: Puts up 12 points off bench
Thompson delivered 12 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-4 FT), two rebounds and four assists across 21 minutes off the bench in Thursday's 120-87 preseason win over New Orleans.
Thompson thrived as a playmaker but wasn't shy on offense, either, and he certainly made the most of the 21 minutes he spent on the court. He's expected to be part of a young core that also includes names such as Jalen Green, Jabari Smith and Alperen Sengun, but he's likely to open the season as the primary backup guard rather than being trusted with a starting role right away....

Rockets' Amen Thompson: Inefficient against Indiana
Thompson generated seven points (1-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 122-103 preseason win over the Pacers.
Although Thompson led the Rockets in rebounds off the bench during Tuesday's preseason opener, he was inefficient from the floor. He salvaged his scoring output with a decent showing from the charity stripe, but his performance suggested what he may display during the regular season. The 20-year-old has a poor shot form but is effective as a ballhandler, so he certainly carries risk as a fantasy option heading into his rookie season.... See More ... See Less
