Tristan Thompson missed Tuesday's practice for a dental appointment after having his two front teeth pushed back during Monday's win over the Lakers.

Thompson will need to wear braces for a couple weeks, but he's not expected to spend any time on the sidelines. Owners can expect to get official confirmation on his status following Wednesday morning's shootaround.

Tristan Thompson (mouth) is not expected to miss any game action.

Thompson took a shot to the mouth during Sunday's game vs. the Lakers and was unable to return. "If I didn't have a good mouth guard, I'd have a tough time having a good dinner tonight, so God bless my mouth guard," he said. Thompson's two front teeth were knocked loose, but he's not in a lot of pain and will simply have to wear braces for a couple weeks. Expect him to be active for Wednesday's game vs. the Nuggets.

Tristan Thompson left Sunday's game against the Lakers due to a mouth injury and he was unable to return.

Thompson finished the night with four points, 10 rebounds, an assist and a blocked shot in 26 minutes before departing. Channing Frye and Derrick Williams might see some added playing time if Thompson is forced to miss time going forward. For now, consider Thompson day to day.

Tristan Thompson double-doubled vs. the Magic on Saturday with 14 points and 13 rebounds.

He also blocked two shots with one assist in 28 minutes, and while he hit 6-of-9 shots from the field, he finished 2-of-7 from the free throw line. He's now shooting 50.0 percent from the line on the season and that's the main reason why he's only returning 11th-round value in standard leagues. He's still a great source of rebounds, blocks and FG percentage, and his role should be safe if the Cavaliers end up signing Larry Sanders to a deal next week.
Mar 11 - 9:46 PM

Tristan Thompson managed just eight points while grabbing 13 rebounds with two blocked shots over 36 minutes in Monday's home loss against the Heat.

Thompson will continue to log heavy minutes in the middle, as Andrew Bogut (leg) snapped a tibia in the first few moments of his team debut and will offer no extra rest for T-Squared down the stretch. Thompson is averaging 9.3 rebounds per contest in four outings in the month of March.

Coach Tyronn Lue told reporters that Tristan Thompson has been bothered by tendinitis in his knee, a claim which Thompson later stated that was untrue.

"He's been going through some tendinitis all year, his knee has been bothering him a little bit all year," Lue said. "He's finally starting to come around and he's feeling good." When asked to comment, Thompson claimed he was fine. "No, no tendinitis," Thompson said. "I'm good. Not sure what coach Lue's talking about. Nothing more than the usual bumps and bruises. I'm good." Thompson has the longest current games-played streak in the NBA, so don't expect him to miss a game anytime soon.
Feb 28 - 1:04 PM

Tristan Thompson hit 6-of-7 shots for 14 points and 11 rebounds in 35 minutes of Tuesday's win over the Timberwolves.

He's double-doubled in two straight games and hit double digits in rebounds in seven of his last 10, and is going to get more opportunities on the boards with Kevin Love (knee surgery) out for the next six weeks or so. If you need a center and Thompson's available, now's the time to move on him.
Feb 14 - 10:58 PM

Tristan Thompson scored a season-high 22 points with 12 rebounds, two assists and no turnovers in 41 minutes against the Wizards on Monday.

It was easily his best game as the Cavs fed him down low on top of his six offensive boards. Last Monday, Thompson somehow didn't attempt any shots from the field or from the line, but he's trended up with three games with 18-plus points in his last five. He still doesn't quite do it for fantasy owners.
Feb 6 - 11:31 PM

Tristan Thompson double-doubled on Wednesday with 18 points and 14 rebounds in 39 minutes vs. the visiting Wolves.

This is a very nice return from TT, especially since he was coming off a scoreless game in 26 minutes on Monday. That fluky dud aside, Thompson has been a reliable low-end big man over the past month, averaging 7.4 points, 8.9 boards, 0.7 steals and 1.3 blocks. Just be aware that he'll hurt you from the FT line.
Feb 1 - 10:31 PM

Tristan Thompson recorded a 19-point, 12-board double-double during Sunday's win over the Thunder, adding one assist, four steals, four blocks and one turnover in 34 minutes.

Thompson got some added run in this one with Kevin Love (back) leaving the game at halftime, and he tied his season high in both blocks and steals. This was probably peak-Thompson, but he’s not capable of bringing this sort of production on a nightly basis (he’s averaging just 0.5 steals per game on the year). Thompson isn’t much more than a rebounding specialist in deep leagues.
Jan 29 - 6:38 PM

Tristan Thompson played just 20 minutes against the Suns on Thursday with six rebounds, one assist and two blocks.

After dislocating his left index finger in the first half, Thompson started the second half with wrap around his finger. Channing Frye played an excellent game and the Cavs never really lost control, so that explains the low playing time. For now, we're expecting Thompson to be a full go on Saturday in the national game against the Spurs. Thompson has only turned in 13th-round value on the season, so he's not the best for fantasy.
Jan 19 - 10:03 PM

Tristan Thompson (finger) will start the second half on Thursday.

X-rays were negative and he should be all set. This game will likely be in garbage time in about 30 minutes.
Jan 19 - 8:29 PM

Tristan Thompson left Thursday's game in the first half and went straight to the locker room after dislocating his left index finger.

X-rays were negative and it sounds like he should return to play in the second half, according to the Cavs' broadcast team. He had four rebounds, two blocks and missed both of his shots before heading to the locker room. Thompson is warming up in preparation for playing in the second half.
Jan 19 - 8:03 PM

Tristan Thompson snared nine of his 15 rebounds on the offensive glass vs. Milwaukee on Wednesday, adding five points, four blocks and one assist in 26 minutes.

The Bucks have settled on a reliable center rotation with John Henson starting and splitting minutes with Greg Monroe, but they're still giving up the fifth-most fantasy value to opposing Cs over the past month. As usual, Thompson is a reliable source of boards, FG percentage and blocks, but little else.
