Description: Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson will start Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals on Wednesday.
Insight: This should help the Cavaliers defense, which had trouble slowing down Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah in Game 1. In 15 regular season starts, Thompson averaged 12.6 ppg, 9.7 rpg and 0.9 bpg, so he is worth considering in daily leagues.
 
2/12/2015 11:12:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson could be in for extra playing time if starter Kevin Love misses time due to his scratched cornea.
Insight: Thompson posted 17 points and nine rebounds in 36 minutes Wednesday, so can still be a viable fantasy option if he sees enough court time. In 11 starts this season he's averaged 14.0 ppg and 11.1 rpg - certainly fantasy worthy numbers.
 
1/17/2015 9:45:00 AM
Description: Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson recorded a double-double on Friday versus the Clippers.
Insight: With no Kevin Love, Thompson scored 24 points and grabbed 12 rebounds. Because of Love's uncertain future, Thompson is an intriguing fantasy play although we fully expect Love to stay in Cleveland and return to the court soon.
 
10/22/2014 6:39:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers forward Tristan Thompson is an intriguing draft pick in dynasty leagues this season.
Insight: The 23-year-old will come off the bench to give rest to superstars LeBron James and Kevin Love. Even if he can earn a starting role in front of Anderson Varejao, he is not expected to make an impact this season. Perhaps in a year or two.
 
2/28/2014 10:07:00 PM
Description: Cleveland forward Tristan Thompson has recorded seven double-doubles in his last nine games.
Insight: He came within one rebound of a double-double in each of the other two games during that span. The 22-year-old had 18 points, 14 rebounds and two assists in 33 minutes Friday night. His minutes may drop a bit when Anderson Varejao returns to the lineup, as the team will have to incorporate Spencer Hawes, Thompson and Varejao into the frontcourt mix.
 
2/19/2014 10:17:00 PM
Description: Cleveland forward Tristan Thompson produced his fourth consecutive double-double Wednesday in a victory over the Magic.
Insight: Thompson racked up 16 points and 14 rebounds as the Cavs won for the sixth time in a row. Of course, they had lost six straight before their winning streak. Thompson's season averages of 12.2 ppg and 9.6 rpg are both career-highs.
 
2/12/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Cavs power forward Tristan Thompson scored 25 points on 12-of-16 shooting and corralled 15 rebounds Wednesday at Detroit.
Insight: Thompson was instrumental in Cleveland winning its fourth straight game. He has averaged 20.5 points and 14 rebounds the last two games after putting up just 8.1 points and 5.9 rebounds per game his previous seven.
 
Hot1/20/2014 9:55:00 AM
Description: Cavs power forward Tristan Thompson has posted six double-doubles in the past seven games.
Insight: Thompson is currently on a pace to set career highs in scoring average (12.2) and rebounds (9.8). The recent addition of Luol Deng to the lineup doesn't appear to have effected Thompson's fantasy value.
 
1/15/2014 9:35:00 AM
Description: Cavs power forward Tristan Thompson generated 15 points and 13 rebounds Tuesday in a win over the Lakers.
Insight: By most measures, this has been Thompson's most productive season since entering the league in 2011. His 12.0 ppg average is a career-high, as are his 9.8 rpg. He's worth employing in most fantasy settings.
 
12/4/2013 9:26:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson gathered a career-high 21 rebounds and scored 17 points with three blocks Wednesday against the Nuggets.
Insight: Thompson is averaging 11.1 points, 10.2 rebounds and 0.6 blocks per game, but while his free-throw percentage is up from .608 last season to .747 his shooting percentage is down from .488 to .421.
 
11/11/2013 10:40:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson had 14 points, 13 rebounds, one steal and one block in 39 minutes Monday at Chicago.
Insight: The 22-year-old Thompson is averaging 37.5 minutes, 13 points and 10.1 rebounds per game this season. He's posted a double-double and blocked at least one shot in three straight games.
 
10/30/2013 10:05:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson had 18 points on 8-of-13 shooting with nine boards Wednesday night in the season opener.
Insight: Thompson averaged a double-double -- 13.2 ppg, 10.3 rpg -- with 0.7 steals and 1.0 blocks in his final 56 games last season. He played 35 minutes Wednesday, but could eventually lose some time to 2013 No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett.
 
8/12/2013 9:17:00 PM
Description: Here's something you don't see too often. Cavs big man Tristan Thompson has decided to switch shooting hands. SOURCE: Michael Grange, Sportsnet
Insight: He'll now shoot with his right hand after playing his first two seasons as a lefty. It's a bizarre move but you can't blame the guy for wanting to shake things up. Thompson shot a pathetic 60.8 percent from the free throw line in 2012-13.
 
4/15/2013 9:56:00 PM
Description: Cleveland power forward Tristan Thompson delivered another solid effort Monday against the Heat.
Insight: In 36 minutes, Thompson piled on 16 points and 13 rebounds. He also recorded two blocked shots. Thompson is tied with Denver's Kenneth Faried for 16th in double-doubles (31).
 
4/5/2013 10:39:00 PM
Description: Cavs big man Tristan Thompson dominated the Celtics Friday night in Boston.
Insight: The 22-year-old finished with 29 points and 17 boards. The 29 points are a new season-high for Thompson.
 
3/12/2013 9:45:00 PM
Description: Cleveland forward Tristan Thompson has five double-doubles in six games this month, including four straight.
Insight: Thompson had 13 points and 14 rebounds Tuesday against the Wizards.
 
3/6/2013 10:07:00 PM
Description: Cleveland forward Tristan Thompson produced 16 points and 12 rebounds Wednesday in a win over Utah.
Insight: It's Thompson's third double-double in his past six games. He's tied with Reggie Evans for 14th in the league in rebounding (9.3 rpg).
 
2/6/2013 9:19:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson only missed one field goal and one free throw Wednesday in a 17-point, 9-rebound, 3-assist, 3-block performance.
Insight: Thompson made 7-of-8 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line. He came into Wednesday's game averaging 14.5 points, 11.3 rebounds, 0.7 steals and 0.9 blocks in 22 games since Anderson Varejao went down with an injury.
 
2/1/2013 12:00:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson is questionable for Friday's game against Detroit due to a bruised left middle finger.
Insight: Thompson is playing on the same level as Anderson Varejao before injuries ended his season. The fourth overall pick of the 2011 draft, Thompson is averaging 15.1 ppg, 10.9 rpg and 1.9 apg in 14 January games. He's a must start if in uniform.
 
Hot1/22/2013 9:32:00 PM
Description: Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson complemented Kyrie Irving Tuesday against the Celtics by scoring 21 points on 9-of-18 shooting with nine boards, five assists, one steal and one block.
Insight: Thompson is averaging 14.1 points and 11.9 rebounds in 17 games since Anderson Varejao went down with an injury. Varejao will miss the rest of the season with a blood clot in his right leg. Cleveland just acquired Marreese Speights from Memphis but Thompson will likely hold onto the starting job.
