Hollis Thompson moved to the bench against the Suns on Friday, finishing with five points, three rebounds and one turnover in 18 minutes.
He did start the second half because Nerlens Noel was in foul trouble. Thompson has been an underwhelming starter throughout his career and he hasn't really done enough to keep his starting role even on the 76ers. He should not have been owned in most leagues to begin with and his arrow is pointing down in deep leagues. Nov 21 - 9:43 PM

Date:

Hollis Thompson will come off the bench Friday with Tony Wroten entering the starting lineup.

Thompson doesn't do much aside from take minutes away from K.J. McDaniels. He's currently averaging 7.9 points, 1.5 steals, and 1.3 three-pointers on the year while shooting 34.9 percent from the field, and he's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 21 - 5:31 PM

Hollis Thompson made 1-of-8 from the field for four points with three rebounds, two steals and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes.

He had a minus-33 and was pretty useless out there. Interestingly, Thompson is probably the safest guy to stay in the starting lineup among Brandon Davies, Luc Mbah a Moute, Henry Sims and Tony Wroten. The 76ers might be the worst 0-10 team ever.
Nov 18 - 1:04 AM

Hollis Thompson scored 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with two rebounds and one steal over 25 minutes on Friday.

Thompson has hovered around borderline late-round value for most of the year and that will probably be the case going forward. He's best suited for deeper formats where that type of production is easier used.
Nov 15 - 12:58 AM

Hollis Thompson did not score on his five field goal attempts against the Mavericks on Thursday to go with one rebound in 20 minutes.

The funny thing is that he's not even the worst starter on the Philadelphia lineup. Thompson isn't worth owning in 14-team leagues.
Nov 14 - 12:29 AM

Hollis Thompson scored a career-high 21 points against the Bulls on Friday with three rebounds, one assist, one steal and three 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He shot just 3-of-10 combined in his last two games, so this game comes out of nowhere. Thompson attempted 14 shots tonight, which is almost double his season average of 8.4 per game. There isn't enough upside to add him in most leagues.
Nov 7 - 10:36 PM

Hollis Thompson started at shooting guard and played 34 minutes, finishing with six points, nine rebounds, two steals, two blocks and a 3-pointer in Wednesday's loss.

He hit just 1-of-5 shots tonight, and will possibly take a big hit when Michael Carter-Williams tentatively returns on Nov. 13. Tony Wroten has played well enough to start at shooting guard once MCW is back, which would really hurt the potential of Thompson.
Nov 5 - 9:57 PM

Hollis Thompson scored seven points on 2-of-5 shooting with three rebounds, two assists and one 3-pointer in 31 minutes on Monday.

Thompson has averaged 9.3 points with 1.5 treys, 2.5 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.8 blocks per game over four contests. That's good enough for low-end value in 12-14 team leagues with a decided advantage in 9-cat formats.
Nov 3 - 10:38 PM

Hollis Thompson blocked three shots against the Heat on Saturday with 10 points, one rebound, two assists and two 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He blocked the entire Miami starting frontcourt in the first five minutes of the game, but was pretty quiet after than. Thompson isn't going to have a high usage and doesn't do much else, so he's more of a deep-league stash.
Nov 1 - 11:48 PM

Hollis Thompson scored 15 points on 6-of-19 shooting (including two threes) with three rebounds, two assists and one steal in 35 minutes on Friday.

One of the problems for Thompson has been his lower utilization so owners might be able to stomach the high-volume clunker for one night. As long as he's starting for the Sixers and getting this type of run, he should be owned in most leagues.
Oct 31 - 11:57 PM

Hollis Thompson started at small forward and had five points, three rebounds, two assists, four steals and a 3-pointer on 2-of-5 shooting Wednesday.

He played 29 minutes, but wasn't all that effective. And as K.J. McDaniels learns how to play in the league, things may get rougher for Thompson.
Oct 29 - 10:57 PM

Hollis Thompson will start at small forward on Wednesday against the Pacers.

He was expected to start and coach Brett Brown added that he won't reveal his starting shooting guard until later. If we piece it together, it sounds like it'll be Chris Johnson. Brown said he likes rookie K.J. McDaniels off the bench and said it could be Johnson or JaKarr Sampson as the fifth starter. Considering Sampson hasn't played at guard even at summer league, one would think he'll be coming off the bench. Of course, this news is only relevant to deep league owners.
Oct 29 - 5:06 PM

Hollis Thompson (eye) played 26 minutes in the starting lineup on Thursday, scoring five points with four rebounds, one assist, two steals and one 3-pointer.

He's a strong bet to be in the starting lineup on opening night, but his low usage rate and inability to fill the stat sheet make him an undesirable pick in most fantasy leagues.
Oct 16 - 10:05 PM

Hollis Thompson (corneal abrasion) is expected to miss another week of the preseason, according to coach Brett Brown.

The good news is that it sounds like he'll be healthy for the Sixers' season opener. Thompson should earn a solid role in the Sixers' wing rotation and a starting job is within his reach, but he'll be vying for minutes with guys like K.J. McDaniels, Luc Mbah a Moute and Elliot Williams.

Hollis Thompson (corneal abrasion) is not traveling with the team to Minnesota for the 76ers preseason game.

Thompson has had an impressive preseason thus far, but his injury may cost him valuable playing time. If he were to sit out, look for K.J. McDaniels and Alexey Shved to get an opportunity to earn some minutes.
