Thompson also spoke to reporters about his recovery and return.
“We’ve been doing a lot of treatment and recovery and getting up and down,” Thompson said. “A couple pickup games, so feel good, we’ll see how I feel in the morning. Time will tell.”
Even before his injury, Thompson’s stats this season had not jumped off the page as he was averaging just 4.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game. Still, he has served as an important piece for the Cavs throughout his career and he will certainly look to regain his form as the season continues.
The injury bug seemed to have bitten the Cavs early in the season, but now players are finally beginning to return to health. Hopefully that translates into yet another impressive winning streak as the Cavs look to continue to build upon their promising NBA season
