News: 1 day agoThompson is expected to be limited during the first week of camp due to a strained hamstring, Jay King of The Athletic reports.
Spin: The issue doesn't look to be anything of great concern, but Thompson's status is worth keeping an eye on, especially if he were to miss any preseason action. The ex-Cavalier is expected to play a key role for Boston this season, whether he backs up Daniel Theis or eventually works his way into the starting lineup.
ESPN Fantasy Projection: Thompson has battled injury in each of the past three seasons but still averaged a double-double with 12.0 PPG and 10.1 RPG in 30.2 MPG last season for the Cavaliers. This season, he joins the Celtics and will battle Daniel Theis for playing time, which could limit the upside of both players. Thompson's demonstrated double-double potential should keep him on fantasy radars, potentially as a late-round consideration or a player to keep an eye on in free agency, but a more limited role may keep him from achieving his fantasy potential.
