Hollis Thompson played just 19 minutes on Wednesday with two points, three rebounds, one assist and one steal.
The return of Jason Richardson hurt him tonight. Thompson is also clearly behind Jerami Grant right now and he's unlikely to get 20 minutes on most nights. He can be ignored in most leagues. Feb 25 - 10:56 PM

Date:

Hollis Thompson scored 22 points against the Heat during a 119-108 loss on Monday, adding one rebound, one assist, one steal and six 3-pointers.

Jason Richardson (knee) rested tonight and Jerami Grant (back) also sat out. Grant was dressed on the bench for this game, so he and Richardson probably won't miss another game, so Thompson can remain on the wire in most leagues.
Feb 23 - 10:53 PM

Hollis Thompson played 20 minutes off the bench with five points, one rebound and one 3-pointer.

Jason Richardson is back, so it's hard to be bullish on Thompson right now. He has been hot like five times in his two-year career, but none of those times were while J-Rich played. He's not worth owning in almost any league.
Feb 20 - 11:21 PM

Hollis Thompson missed all nine shot from the field against the Warriors on Monday with six rebounds, two assists, four turnovers and six turnovers in 28 minutes.

Law of averages? Thompson was off to a ridiculous start in February, averaging 16.8 points, 5.5 board, 1.5 assists, 1.0 steals and 3.3 treys on 59.0 percent from the field in his previous four games. He was very inconsistent in his career to this point and it was only a matter of time before he cooled down. With Jason Richardson as a threat to his playing time, it's hard to be excited about having Thompson on your fantasy team.
Feb 10 - 12:04 AM

Hollis Thompson scored 18 points against the Hornets on Saturday with four rebounds, one assist and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He's arguably the hottest shooter in the Eastern Conference. In his last five, Thompson averaged 15.8 points, 5.0 boards, 1.0 steals and 3.4 triples on 56.3 percent from the field. His body of work suggests this in an aberration, but he's on fire and has played at least 31 minutes in each of his last three. If you need treys, give him a look.
Feb 7 - 10:58 PM

Hollis Thompson stayed hot on Friday with 16 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one steal and four 3-pointers against the Celtics.

He scored a career-high 23 points on Tuesday and has been in double-digit scoring for four consecutive games. Still, Thompson has gone on hot streaks before with most of them coming in his rookie season and he's not a high-upside guy, so he's not worth owning in standard leagues yet.
Feb 7 - 12:50 AM

Hollis Thompson exploded for a career-high 23 points vs. the Nuggets, finishing Tuesday's home victory 8-of-12 from the field with four 3-pointers, three rebounds, three assists, one steal and two blocks.

Welcome back, Hollis. An unfortunate illness forced him to miss 11 games and caused him to lose 20 pounds, so it's taken him a while to find his rhythm since returning in mid-January. This marks his third straight game in double-digit points and he's worth grabbing for his 3-point shooting and trickle of all-around production, but don't be shocked if Philly's chaotic rotations lead to a few unexpected duds.
Feb 3 - 10:08 PM

Hollis Thompson scored 12 points with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and four 3-pointers in 27 minutes against the Hawks on Saturday.

He started the second half and he might stick in the starting lineup. Thompson was starting earlier this season and he might have earned another chance with the first unit based on JaKarr Sampson and K.J. McDaniels not working out. That said, he's still not worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 31 - 11:46 PM

Hollis Thompson started the second half in place of JaKarr Sampson.

He had a chance to stick in the starting lineup, but he might have squandered it. Sampson's first start of his career came at shooting guard and he will probably get another chance soon. He's not worth owning in most leagues.
Jan 31 - 8:54 PM

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.
