Tristan Thompson records double-double in Wednesday's win over the 76ers

Tristan Thompson produced 14 points (7-15 FG, 0-2 3PT), 13 rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block across 32 minutes in Wednesday's 108-94 win over the 76ers.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson drew the start with Andre Drummond (calf) ruled out on Wednesday. He capitalized on his opportunity by recording his 25th double-double of the year. The 28-year old has now logged a double-double in three of his last five contests. If Drummond is out an extended period of time, Thompson is worth adding and should be owned in all standard leagues. The Cavaliers next scheduled game is Friday, away against the Pelicans.

Tristan Thompson goes 15 & 9 in OT victory

Tristan Thompson contributed 15 points (5-11 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-7 FT), nine rebounds and three assists across 29 minutes in the Cavs’ 125-119 OT victory over the Heat on Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Reports of his demise were greatly exaggerated, and Thompson was once again able to post quality fantasy numbers despite coming off the bench behind Andre Drummond. The latter hasn't seen much success with his new team, though Thompson has seen an increase in scoring average without a sharp decline in rebounds.

Tristan Thompson scores 16 off the bench Saturday

Tristan Thompson totaled 16 points (7-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), seven rebounds and an assist over 26 minutes in the Cavs’ 124-105 loss to the Heat on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson teased a double-double Saturday, posting an efficient game while seeing one more minute of court time than starter Andre Drummond. Left for dead following Drummond's acquisition, Thompson has flourished in his role with the second unit. In four games off the bench, Thompson has upped his scoring average significantly to 15.0 points, while adding 8.8 boards. If he was dropped in any leagues, he should be scooped up quickly.

Tristan Thompson erupts for 27 points in Wednesday's win over the Hawks

Tristan Thompson scored a team-high 27 points (11-16 FG, 3-3 3PT, 2-4 FT) with 11 rebounds, an assist and a steal across 26 minutes in Wednesday's 127-105 win over the Hawks.

Fantasy Impact

Thompson, who was recently regulated to the bench, popped off for 27 points and 11 rebounds in Wednesday's win. He is having a career-year entering the All-Star break, averaging 12.1 points, 10.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 0.9 blocks across 50 games. With the recent acquisition of Andre Drummond, Thompson's numbers will suffer. Despite the huge night on Wednesday, Thompson is only worth holding onto in deep-league formats. The Cavaliers next scheduled game is after the All-Star break on February 21st, away against the Wizards.

Tristan Thompson relegated to bench role in Sunday's loss

Tristan Thompson managed seven points (2-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and two assists across 19 minutes during Sunday's 133-92 loss to the Clippers.

Fantasy Impact

One of the biggest losers at the NBA trade deadline was Thompson, whose fantasy value will suffer with the acquisition of star center Andre Drummond. He will come off the bench and be limited to 15-20 minutes per contest. Thompson can be dropped in all standard leagues. The Cavaliers next scheduled game is Wednesday, home against the Hawks.
