Hollis Thompson made his Pelicans debut on Thursday and played five minutes, scoring three points.
Right now, only E'Twaun Moore, Tim Frazier and Thompson are available to play shooting guard for the Pelicans, while SF Omri Casspi suffered a broken thumb tonight. Moore's the guy to own here, in part because he's starting, but Frazier and Thompson are also worth keeping a close eye on over the next few games. Feb 23 - 11:23 PM

Hollis Thompson has officially signed a 10-day contract with the Pelicans.

New Orleans needs to add some depth after trading away Langston Galloway, Buddy Hield and Tyreke Evans, so there's a chance Thompson will stick around all season. Even if he joins the rotation immediately, there's no clear path to fantasy relevance here.

The Pelicans are close to signing Hollis Thompson to a 10-day contract, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

New Orleans lacks depth in the backcourt and wings, following their splashy trade for DeMarcus Cousins, and they recently auditioned Thompson in addition to Mario Chalmers, Quinn Cook and Reggie Williams. He'll be a bit player, assuming he does crack the Pelicans' rotation, and the vast majority of owners can leave him on the wire.
Feb 22 - 7:23 PM

76ers waive G/F Hollis Thompson.

The 76ers want to play Dario Saric at the three more and it's been a successful combo for them, so getting him more minutes at that spot makes sense -- he also had the game-winning pass on Tuesday night. This should also help Robert Covington get a couple extra minutes. Saric and RoCo figure to be trending up and both get slight bumps along with Ersan Ilyasova. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot also sticks in the rotation.
Jan 4 - 4:05 PM

Hollis Thompson scored seven points with one rebound, one assist and one 3-pointer in 21 minutes against the Jazz on Thursday.

With Nik Stauskas set to slide over to the point guard spot more on Friday, there should be even more run for Thompson. Still, not getting a bump tonight with Gerald Henderson (hip) out is somewhat discouraging. While he could start on Friday, he'll be a risky DFS play.

Hollis Thompson (sore left knee) returned from a one-game absence on Sunday, coming off the bench for one point and three rebounds in 17 minutes.

Philly ranks last in the league in offensive efficiency at 97.3 points per 100 possessions, but they took advantage of a great matchup to boost that number to 104.0 for tonight. Nik Stauskas (sore left knee) was out of commission tonight and Thompson still couldn't join in the offensive fun, which is further proof that he belongs on the waiver wire.

Hollis Thompson (sore left knee) will be available to play Sunday vs. the Nets.

He could pick up some extra minutes tonight if Nik Stauskas (knee) is unavailable, but he's far too inconsistent to rely upon in most settings.

Hollis Thompson (left knee soreness) is probable to play against the Nets on Sunday.

It sounds like a wear-and-tear injury with Thompson not playing in the second half on Friday. With the 76ers going bigger more often, it's really hurt Thompson's playing time. Plus, it doesn't help that Robert Covington is playing better. Thompson is off the radar in most leagues.

Hollis Thompson (knee) was ruled out at halftime of Friday's game vs. the Lakers.

He was considered questionable to play tonight, but the 76ers waited until the start of the second half to rule him out. Thompson has only been playing minutes in the teens lately and belongs on the waiver wire.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 09:47:00 PM

Hollis Thompson (knee) is questionable to play on Friday vs. the Lakers.

He is experiencing right knee soreness, but there was no warning of this earlier in the day. Thompson has only been playing 14.2 minutes per game over his last five, but his absence could lead to a few more minutes for Robert Covington and Dario Saric at the three. The 76ers didn't update his questionable tag prior to tip-off, so he likely will only be used in emergency situations.
Fri, Dec 16, 2016 08:07:00 PM

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.
Sat, Dec 3, 2016 11:13:00 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.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 09:22:00 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.

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.
Wed, Nov 23, 2016 11:36:00 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.
