Hollis Thompson scored five points with one rebound and one 3-pointer in just 17 minutes on Saturday.
This was a bit of a surprise to see no increase in playing time with Robert Covington (knee) out. Dario Saric was hot, Nik Stauskas gave the 76ers another ball-handler, and Gerald Henderson was playing good defense, so Thompson wasn't let loose. He should be better, but Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot getting minutes is a bad sign. Dec 3 - 11:13 PM

Hollis Thompson scored two points with two rebounds, one assist, one steal and no turnovers in 25 minutes against the Magic on Friday.

With Robert Covington (knee) suffering an injury tonight, Thompson could wind up getting some starts. Thompson was already pushing RoCo for minutes and he did get 27 minutes in a start for Gerald Henderson earlier this year. Thompson is struggling lately and made just 3-of-13 from the field in his last three, but he's a speculative add in deep leagues with Covington possibly missing time.
Dec 2 - 9:22 PM

Hollis Thompson moved back to the bench against the Bulls on Friday, finishing with 11 points, five rebounds, two assists, two steals and three 3-pointers in 21 minutes.

Even in the second unit, he did get some extra run for a struggling Robert Covington. Thompson does have a few avenues for minutes, but there's no need to make a move here in most leagues.
Nov 25 - 10:55 PM

Hollis Thompson started on Wednesday and posted six points with three rebounds and two steals in 27 minutes vs. the Grizzlies.

Gerald Henderson (illness) was out of commission tonight, hence Thompson's fill-in starting gig. It was Nik Stauskas who earned the lion's share of SG minutes, however, coming off the bench for 10 points on 3-of-12 shooting with five boards and four assists in 43 minutes. There's no need to bother with Thompson in 12-team leagues.
Nov 23 - 11:36 PM

Hollis Thompson will start for Gerald Henderson (illness) on Wednesday against the Grizzlies.

He's one of coach Brett Brown's guys and will likely be giving him 24-30 minutes tonight. Thompson won't be taking too many shots in the first unit, but he is a decent streamer in deep leagues or for DFS punts. His upside isn't too high.
Nov 23 - 5:28 PM

If Gerald Henderson (illness) is out for Monday, Hollis Thompson will start.

Coach Brett Brown has always had an affinity for Thompson and it's even possible he unseats Robert Covington at some point. Nik Stauskas has said he'd rather come off the bench, as well. Thompson would almost be a lock for 24-30 minutes, so he would be a short-term play or a DFS punt. Plus, he's on the radar in deeper leagues.
Nov 21 - 5:47 PM

Hollis Thompson (sprained ankle) finished Wednesday's OT loss in Indiana with 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting, three 3-pointers, six rebounds, three assists and one steal.

Thompson sat out Tuesday's practice after sustaining a minor injury during Monday's game, but it was never a threat to sideline him. He did his damage in just 26 minutes tonight and we're viewing this outburst skeptically -- Joel Embiid (rest) wasn't around to dominate his team's usage rate, and this is the second time Thompson's scored double-digit points this season.
Nov 9 - 10:05 PM

Hollis Thompson (sprained ankle) did not practice on Tuesday, but is expect to play on Wednesday.

Thompson played 18 minutes Monday night, so the 76ers are likely just giving him some rest on Tuesday.
Nov 8 - 1:46 PM

Hollis Thompson played through an ankle injury on Monday but hit just 1-of-4 shots in 18 minutes for two points and two rebounds.

After going nuts with 22 points, seven boards and four 3-pointers last Tuesday, Thompson has scored a total of 14 points with nine rebounds and two 3-pointers in his three games since. Tuesday is looking more and more like a fluke by the minute.
Nov 7 - 10:38 PM

Hollis Thompson (ankle) is probable to play Monday vs. the Jazz.

Thompson is dealing with a very mild sprained right ankle, but it sounds like he'll give it a go tonight. That being said, he'll have a tough matchup against Utah, so he's not a very attractive target in most settings.
Nov 7 - 5:22 PM

Hollis Thompson missed practice on Sunday due to a mild sprained right ankle.

He suffered the injury on Saturday and is day-to-day. After a 22-point outing the Magic, Thompson has scored a combined 12 points in his last two games. Nik Stauskas and Timothe Luwawu could get a handful of minutes if Thompson misses time. To be clear, Thompson is listed as probable.
Nov 6 - 1:28 PM

Hollis Thompson hit 8-of-10 shots, 4-of-4 3-pointers and 2-of-2 free throws for a season-high 22 points, seven boards and a block in Tuesday's 103-101 loss to the Magic.

He had scored a total of seven points in his previous two games so this looks more like a fluke than anything. He was perfect on the night with his shot and really helped pick up the slack for Robert Covington, who hasn't even scored in two straight games. If Thompson gets the nod over RoCo on Wednesday he's probably worth a flier, but if Covington keeps his job, this might end up being the highlight of Thompson's season.
Nov 1 - 10:05 PM

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not play on Friday.

He's had the flu since at least Saturday and hopefully he can make it back soon. Thompson will be getting in the rotation and should get minutes at both wing spots. He won't have much value while Gerald Henderson and Robert Covington are active.
Oct 19 - 4:59 PM

Hollis Thompson (flu) did not practice on Monday.

He was held out of Saturday's game vs. Detroit and should be considered questionable for Friday's preseason finale vs. the Heat. Thompson is averaging 7.6 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 treys through five preseason games.
Oct 17 - 12:54 PM

Hollis Thompson (flu) will not play on Saturday vs. Detroit.

Thompson has received two blurbs since the beginning of April, so that's as vivid of a picture as we can paint when it comes to his expected fantasy value.
