Sixers SF Hollis Thompson (sore left knee) will not play in Sunday's Summer League game.
There is no indication that Thompson's injury is serious and it makes sense to rest him in a mid-summer exhibition with nothing at stake but player development. Philly is also holding out Nerlens Noel for purely precautionary reasons. Jul 6 - 5:07 PM

Hollis Thompson scored a career-high 18 points on 6-of-9 shooting against the Nets on Saturday with two boards, one assist and six 3-pointers.

He's in some kind of groove from deep and has shot at least 50 percent from 3-point range in each of his last seven games. In that span, he hit 18 triples and has helped his fantasy value enough to warrant consideration in standard-style leagues. If you want to add him based on the hot streak, it makes some sense as long as your expectations are low and you're not cutting anyone with reliable value.
Apr 5 - 10:34 PM

Hollis Thompson will start against the Bulls on Saturday.

With Tony Wroten out, it would have been a surprise to see the Sixers go with anyone else. Thompson does not really shoot the ball enough to be picked up in standard leagues, so there's little reason to pick him up.
Mar 22 - 7:16 PM

Hollis Thompson will come off the bench against the Knicks on Friday night.

It could just be a matchup decision for coach Brett Brown here, but it doesn't really matter as far as the stats go. While the Sixers are healthy, Thompson doesn't shoot the ball enough while he doesn't do much on the defensive end. He can be let loose in most fantasy formats.
Mar 21 - 6:23 PM

Hollis Thompson came back to earth on Wednesday with two points in 19 minutes.

He went nuts for one of his best games of the season on Monday against the Pacers, racking up 17 points, six rebounds, three assists, a steal, a block and four 3-pointers. And the reality is that it usually takes him a couple weeks to rack up those kind of numbers. Continue to ignore him, which you will have no problem doing if you throw out Monday's game and look at the rest of his game log.
Mar 19 - 10:08 PM

Hollis Thompson posted a big line on Monday against the Pacers, scoring 17 points on 6-of-7 shooting (including four threes) with six rebounds, three assists, one steal and one block in 41 minutes.

This is a highly leveraged line with good versatility and unfortunately it's the first real noise he has made in a long time. Maybe this is the outing that gets him going, but we need to see it again before recommending an add in 12-14 team formats.
Mar 17 - 9:43 PM

The Sixers think Hollis Thompson can be part of their long term plans.

A week after coach Brett Brown called Thompson, "a keeper", he added to his praise of the rookie. "Who is Hollis Thompson? We're trying to take a shooter and a pretty good athlete, and maybe get some weight on him as he gets older and get him playing defense," Brown said. "If we do that, there's a place for him." Thompson is averaging 23.6 minutes per game over his last five contests, but has only averaged 5.6 points, 3.0 boards, and 1.0 assists over that span. The Sixers may like Thompson as a keeper, but fantasy owners won't find a whole lot of value in the Georgetown alum this season.
Mar 4 - 8:47 AM

Hollis Thompson was invisible in another start on Sunday, going scoreless without a single rebound, assist, steal or block in 25 minutes.

Thompson continues to play around 25 minutes per game, almost by default given the Sixers' roster, but he hasn't come close to providing standard-league fantasy value. We'll let you know if he picks up the pace.
Mar 2 - 9:14 PM

Hollis Thompson was back in the starting lineup for the Sixers on Wednesday and had six points, seven rebounds, a block and two 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

It looks like the Sixers are about to play musical lineups on a nightly basis, and if Thompson isn't a full-time starter, there's no reason to give him much of a look right now.
Feb 26 - 9:54 PM

Hollis Thompson will start against the Magic on Wednesday.

He was arguably the favorite to start at the time of the trade deadline and perhaps his ankle kept him to a bench role. Thompson has been quiet since the deadline, averaging 7.5 points, 3.0 boards, 1.0 steals and 1.0 triples. He's only worth a look in deep leagues.
Feb 26 - 6:15 PM

Hollis Thompson logged 22 minutes off the bench on Monday against the Bucks, scoring eight points on 3-of-7 shooting (including a three) with one rebound, four assists, two steals and one block.

Thompson didn't get it done with the minutes or scoring but he was solid everywhere else and it's unclear if he's at 100 percent with his ankle. Look for him to have a solid rotation slot on a team known for its fantasy system, making him worth a look in most standard formats and worth a speculative add for those that want to bet he can step into a bigger role than he has had all season.
Feb 24 - 10:40 PM

Hollis Thompson played 19 minutes in his return to the lineup on Friday with seven points, five boards and one 3-pointer.

He missed three games due to a sprained ankle and might not be back to 100 percent. Thompson played a little power forward as the Sixers went small on occasion and he does have some versatility. He won't have much of an upside even if he cracks the starting unit, but the minutes could be there for owners in deeper formats.
Feb 21 - 10:37 PM

Hollis Thompson will come off the bench against the Mavericks on Friday.

He's active for the game, but he's not a total lock to play after missing three games with an ankle sprain. Thompson was probably the better bet to start over Elliot Williams, which is a bit of a red flag on his injury. He shouldn't be in lineups tonight, but he's still a pickup in deep leagues.
Feb 21 - 5:46 PM

Beat writer Tom Moore considers Hollis Thompson (ankle, day to day) a candidate to start at small forward if Danny Granger is bought out.

If the Sixers do reach a deal to send Granger packing, Thompson and Earl Clark would be the candidates to start. Perhaps Thompson will have the edge as the guy that has been in Philly all season long. He's already playing 21.1 minutes a night, averaging 5.8 points, 3.5 rebounds and 0.6 3-pointers per game. Still, the lack of talent from both players should give fantasy owners pause here. There's not much upside outside of extremely deep formats.
Feb 20 - 4:48 PM

Hollis Thompson (ankle) will practice on Thursday in the hopes that he can return to action during Friday's game.

The Sixers would love to get their rookie back on the court, but his availability doesn't mean much for fantasy purposes. Even while starting 18 games this season, Thompson has posted quiet averages of 6.9 points, 0.8 threes, 4.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 0.7 steals.
