Hollis Thompson (illness) will play Tuesday vs. the Hawks.
Thompson missed the 76ers past 11 games with an illness that caused him to lose 20 pounds, so he's likely going to be eased back into the rotation. He's a low-percentage shooter, and he doesn't offer much to a fantasy squad, so he can remain on the waiver wire in most leagues. Jan 13 - 5:25 PM

Hollis Thompson (illness) is expected to return against the Hawks on Tuesday.

Thompson has missed the last 10 games with an upper respiratory infection, and after losing 20 pounds with the illness (now back up to 205), it was something that was clearly very serious. His return won't mean much on its own, but it could impact the minutes and production of Tony Wroten, Jr.
Jan 12 - 1:12 PM

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not suit up for Friday's game against the Nets.

Luc Mbah a Moute will get the start tonight, but with a difficult matchup and limited upside, he's not a great option in most leagues. Thompson hasn't played since Dec. 21, and he remains without an official return date, although his status is pretty meaningless for owners in standard leagues.
Jan 9 - 6:38 PM

Hollis Thompson (illness) is not expected to play against the Bucks on Wednesday.

He lost 20 pounds due to an illness and the 76ers have discussed bringing him back in the D-League. K.J. McDaniels will continue to start and he's coming off a good game, too.
Jan 7 - 6:34 PM

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not play against the Cavs on Monday and has lost 20 pounds.

He has been out since Dec. 21 with this illness and the Sixers are discussing him rehabbing in the D-League. K.J. McDaniels will start again, but he's actually been a major disappointment. Thompson isn't worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 5 - 5:28 PM

Hollis Thompson (illness) is listed as out for Saturday's game vs. the Clippers.

He still isn't expected to be ready until at least Jan. 5, so this news comes as no surprise. K.J. McDaniels recently moved into the starting lineup and should be owned in most leagues for his upside alone, while Tony Wroten will continue to log big minutes off the bench.

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not play against the Warriors on Tuesday.

He was sent home as a precaution and is unlikely to play until the 76ers return home for a game on Monday Jan. 5. Thompson can be cut in just about all leagues while Tony Wroten and K.J. McDaniels get more run.

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not play on Saturday vs. the Jazz, and was sent home to Philadelphia for precautionary reasons.

He has missed the past four games and it looks like he could see more time on the sidelines, especially considering the 76ers next home game isn't until Jan.5. We will update his status as needed, but in the meantime K.J. McDaniels and Tony Wroten will be the biggest beneficiaries, and are worth a look in all leagues.

Hollis Thompson (illness) will not play against the Blazers on Friday.

He's been out since Sunday, so this is a bit strange and hopefully he's OK. While he is out, JaKarr Sampson, K.J. McDaniels and Tony Wroten will get more run at shooting guard. Jerami Grant may also play a bit more, but is not a great fantasy option. Thompson is not worth owning in most leagues.
Fri, Dec 26, 2014 02:26:00 PM

Hollis Thompson (illness) will miss Tuesday's game against the Heat.

Thompson has been dealing with an upper respiratory infection and should be back for Friday's game against the Suns. K.J. McDaniels will see a boost in minutes on Tuesday with Thompson out and makes for a solid play in daily games.
Tue, Dec 23, 2014 11:53:00 AM

Hollis Thompson (illness) is out for Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

He is dealing with an upper respiratory infection, but he should be fine with a little rest. K.J. McDaniels is the biggest beneficiary of this news, and makes for an intriguing plug-and-play option for his ability to block shots and shoot 3-pointers.
Sun, Dec 21, 2014 11:05:00 AM

Holls Thompson scored 21 points on 7-of-8 from the field in 41 minutes on Saturday with four rebounds, three steals and five 3-pointers.

That's good for an effective field goal percentage of 118.8. Thompson has been fairly quiet this season and has given up some minutes to rookie K.J. McDaniels (ankle), but made the most of his playing time tonight. McDaniels won't be out long, so Thompson isn't a great pickup.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 11:14:00 PM

Hollis Thompson started at shooting guard against the Mavericks on Saturday with 10 points, two rebounds, one assist, one steal and two 3-pointers.

Coach Brett Brown loves Thompson in the starting lineup probably more than he should and he is expected to stay there even with K.J. McDaniels really coming on in his past few games. Thompson is not really worth owning in most leagues.

Hollis Thompson will start at shooting guard against the Mavericks on Saturday.

Tony Wroten (knee) will miss at least the next week and the 76ers will have to figure out what they're going to do on the wing. K.J. McDaniels should still get some extra minutes because of Wroten leading the team in total minutes on the season. McDaniels is a more attractive option in fantasy leagues.
Sat, Nov 29, 2014 05:24:00 PM

Hollis Thompson is expected to start against the Mavericks on Saturday in place of Tony Wroten (knee).

There could be some tweets from K.J. McDaniels' mom on Twitter shortly. Kidding aside, Thompson has been a bit of a boring option in the first unit and he already lost his job once, but coach Brett Brown will play it safe and go with him. McDaniels is still a much better asset in fantasy leagues.
