Amen Thompson News
Houston Rockets guard Amen Thompson (illness) picked up an illness since returning to the court from an ankle injury and it has forced him to miss two games so far. He has now been ruled out for Sunday night's game against the Milwaukee Bucks, marking his third consecutive absence. The rookie has only appeared in five games so far this season, so he hasn't been able to progress as quickly as expected. While he's out, Aaron Holiday should remain as the backup point guard while Reggie Bullock may see a few minutes as well.
Houston Rockets guard Amen Thompson (illness) returned on Monday from a 15-game absence due to an ankle sprain, then he picked up an illness afterward and was forced to miss their game on Wednesday. Now, he's tagged as questionable for the Friday night game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Thompson has yet to crack the starting lineup and he hasn't received more than 21 minutes. Injuries, and now this illness, have derailed his growth through the early part of the season. The minutes will likely be split between Jae'Sean Tate and Tari Eason off of the bench with the latter being a better streaming option. Thompson's fantasy value only exists in dynasty or keeper leagues at this moment.
Houston Rockets guard Amen Thompson (ankle) was recalled to the main roster. The 20-year-old had appeared in four games this season, averaging 6.3 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 1.5 assists. However, he tweaked his ankle in early November and hasn't suited up for the big club since. That said, Thompson could see meaningful minutes for the Rockets at some point. But that likely won't be anytime soon, so his fantasy value in anything outside of dynasty formats is limited.
Houston Rockets guard/forward Amen Thompson (ankle) is out for Friday's In-Season Tournament game against the Los Angeles Clippers. Thompson left Nov. 1's game with what amounted to a Grade 2 right ankle sprain and was later given a two-to-four week recovery timetable. 2023's No. 4 overall pick could be inching closer to a return, after we last heard that he shed a walking boot on Nov. 7. Thompson is not a must-stash fantasy commodity in redraft leagues on the 6-3 Rockets, who are undefeated in six games during the month of November. Sunday's road encounter with the Los Angeles Lakers marks the next chance for a return. Aaron Holiday has been a more consistent member of head coach Ime Udoka's rotation without Thompson, but Tari Eason's role could eventually begin to grow following a late start to the year with a stress fracture in his left leg.
