Malcolm Thomas is expected to play with the Blazers at Las Vegas Summer League.
He had an impressive run in Vegas last year and earned a spot with the 76ers last regular season, averaging 2.6 points per game in 17 outings. He'll need to have a monster run to get another chance in the big league. Jun 6 - 12:51 AM

76ers waive F Malcolm Thomas.

Thomas hasn't played since late January and the Sixers need guards more than forwards, so it's not surprising to see him let loose. He's not a fantasy asset no matter where he finishes the season.
Feb 22 - 5:41 PM

76ers sign F Malcolm Thomas.

Thomas isn't with the team for Tuesday's game and isn't worth fantasy owners' attention. During his first stint with Philly earlier this year, he averaged 4.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 0.2 blocks and 1.6 personal fouls in just 14 minutes per game.

The 76ers will reportedly re-sign F Malcolm Thomas on Tuesday.

Thomas was with the 76ers earlier in the season, and through five games he put up averages of 4.4 points and 4.6 rebounds over 14.3 minutes of action. He's not worth owning in any league.

The Sixers could bring Malcolm Thomas back into the fold, a source tells the Philadelphia Inquirer.

The Sixers need another big body, and Thomas is a "favorite" of Philly's front office. He would hold no fantasy value if signed.

Sixers waive F Malcolm Thomas.

His knee injury cost him here and he will likely have to head to the D-League once he's healthy. Thomas may also opt for surgery on his knee. He's not worth owning in any fantasy league.

Malcolm Thomas is expected to choose surgery on his knee which would keep him sidelined for around four weeks.

This would likely keep him out until at least the middle of December so this reiterates the fact that Thomas should not be owned in almost any league. Expect Brandon Davies and Henry Sims to pick up a few extra minutes in his absence, though neither Sims or Davies are consistent enough for standard leagues.

Malcolm Thomas (knee) is out for Sunday's game and didn't even make the trip to Toronto.

He is currently deciding on whether or not to have surgery on his knee or to play through the pain. If he chooses to have surgery, he will be shelved for up to four weeks so we will monitor this situation closely. You can ignore Thomas in almost all leagues and in the meantime, expect Brandon Davies and Henry Sims to get all the minutes they can handle with Nerlens Noel (ankle) also out.

Malcolm Thomas (knee) has to decide on whether or not to play through the pain, or have surgery and miss up to four weeks.

"I had it drained last week, Thomas said, "and it swelled back up on me . . .. [The knee] is just filled up. I got cartilage just floating around." This is a tricky situation for him and we will update you as soon as we know more. Thomas is only an asset in very deep leagues at the moment, and can safely be dropped if he opts for surgery. If he misses time, expect to see a lot of Henry Sims and Brandon Davies.

Malcolm Thomas (left knee) will not play against the Bulls on Friday.

The 76ers are really thin up front, so they'll have their starters, Brandon Davies and Henry Sims, get plenty of minutes. JaKarr Sampson may also get a handful of extra minutes.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 05:10:00 PM

Malcolm Thomas scored eight points with nine rebounds in 19 minted against the Heat on Saturday.

The 76ers picked him up after he was waived and it looks pretty good. Thomas was actually really great at summer league for the Jazz, so it was surprising to see them let him go. Still, he'll need a couple things to go his way to be a fantasy asset in even 16-team leagues.

76ers sign F Malcolm Thomas.

Thomas was traded a few times this past year before ultimately being waived by the Celtics in September. He finds new life with the Sixers, whose roster is as wide-open as any in the league, but he's still not worth picking up in fantasy leagues.

Malcolm Thomas was officially waived by the Celtics.

He had almost no shot at making the team and Thomas is not worth drafting in any format.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 05:23:00 PM

Malcom Thomas was traded to the Celtics on Thursday.

He was very good for the Jazz at summer league, averaging 11.8 points, 5.8 boards, 2.4 assists and 1.2 blocks in five games. However, the Jazz dealt him to the Cavs in July and his contract remains unguaranteed. He is unlikely to make the Celtics.

Malcolm Thomas was traded to the Cavs on Tuesday.

He's almost a lock to be waived with a non-guaranteed contract or at least traded in another deal to help the money match up. Thomas looked great out there with the Jazz in Las Vegas and they may try to bring him back after he clears waivers. He should get a camp invite somewhere at the least.
