Thompson continued his recent scoring slump, scoring just two points (1-1 FG) in 12 minutes of play in a loss to the Suns on Friday.

Thompson has started every game this season for the Kings, but has now scored single-digit points in six straight games. His shooting isn't the issue (he's a perfect 5-for-5 in his past three games), but he's just not involved in the offense, as evidenced by his limited playing time Friday. Earlier in December, Thompson was making a case to be a legitimate fantasy option, but lately just hasn't been productive enough to be owned in most leagues.

Thompson scored a season-high 18 points (9-12 FG) with nine rebounds and four assists in 32 minutes Saturday against the Magic.

THat makes two straight games that Thompson has played in excess of 30 minutes and been a useful fantasy contributor, narrowly missing a double-double Friday. It must be noted that these big nights are coming without DeMarcus Cousins (illness) in the lineup so expectations should be tempted when Boogie returns. For now, Thompson may be a short term add if you have an open roster spot. For the season, Thompson is averaging 4.9 points and 6.4 rebounds.

Thompson score nine points (3-8 FG, 0-0 3pt, 3-5 FT) and added 10 rebounds and a steal in 38 minutes of work against the Pacers on Friday night.

This game went to overtime and DeMarcus Cousins sat out with an illness. These two factors helped Thompson get to get a whopping 38 minutes of playing time. He is averaging 26 minutes per game thus far this season. His value will drop once DeMarcus Cousins comes back, as he has averaged just four points and six rebounds a game this season.

Thompson (quadriceps) made the start Thursday and contributed three points (1-5 FG, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, and one block in 29 minutes.

Thompson has been dealing with tightness in his left quad but hasn't actually missed time off the court because of the injury. At this point it seems unlikely that he'll be sidelined by this minor injury as the Kings face the Timberwolves on Saturday.

Thompson is officially listed as probable for Thursday's game against the Bulls, James Ham of Cowbell Kingdom reports.

For the second straight game, Thompson is listed as probable while battling left quad tendinitis. The ailment didn't seem to affect him too greatly Tuesday against New Orleans, as he posted 15 points and nine boards in 25 minutes.

Thompson scored 15 points (6-10 FG, 3-4 FT), with nine rebounds in 25 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Pelicans.

Thompson was probable to play, but did well in limited minutes. Omri Casspi actually played more than Thompson did, but the big man was still able to have a solid night. Temper your expectations with Thompson though, as this is the first time he's hit double figure points all season.

Thompson is probable for Tuesday's contest against the Pelicans due to left quadriceps tendinitis.

Expect Thompson to man his typical spot at power forward, but Rudy Gay's potential absence due to tendinitis in his right Achilles throws a wrench into the forward rotation. If Gay fails to take the court, and Thompson is somewhat limited, Carl Landry and Omri Casspi are the likely candidates to take on additional run.

Thompson recorded four points (2-5 FG), seven rebounds, one assist, two steals, and two blocks with three turnovers in the victory over the Los Angeles Clippers Sunday. He played 37 minutes.

Thompson isn't going to light up the scoreboard on most nights but does contribute in other areas. If he continues to get 35-40 minutes per game he will be a useful fantasy play for his rebounds, blocks, and steals alone. Leave him on the waiver wire for now; just be ready to scoop him up if he does well against the Denver Nuggets on Monday.

Thompson had seven points (2-4 FG, 3-4 FT) and seven rebounds to go along with five turnovers in 21 minutes as the starter at power forward for the Kings in their loss to the Raptors on Sunday.

While Thompson was named the starter of the preseason game Sunday, it is too hard to tell if he'll keep the starting job going forward. Thompson was said to be having a great training camp, but Reggie Evans, Derrick Williams, and Carl Landry all played 21, 15, and 21 minutes coming off the bench Sunday. What this likely means is coach Mike Malone liked the improvement of Thompson this offseason and sees him as the best option right now, but the competition for the regular season starting role is still wide open. While nobody stood out with a great performance, two important things to note are Reggie Evans lead the team with 13 rebounds and Thompson lead with five turnovers. Thompson didn't attempt any three-pointers despite the fact that he worked on it this offseason.

Thompson developed a three-point shot in the offseason, the Sacramento Bee reports.

Coach Mike Malone relayed the news Tuesday, which will be substantiated one way or the other once the preseason begins in earnest. With no proven touch from beyond the arc -- Thompson has merely knocked down 1-for-26 in his six-year career -- potential owners shouldn't bank on the 6-11, 250 forward suddenly draining treys on a consistent basis. That is, unless he proves to boast a prowess from deep.
