Won't play tonight, but it looks like he will play soon.
Whenever he does suit up, he'll feel the effects of the injury, and will be hampered by having missed out on a good bit of the strength and conditioning work. However, a rusty and recovering Trey Thompkins is still a pretty good basketball player.
He'll likely get better as the year goes on. Maybe just in time for the SEC portion of the schedule.
Coach Herrmann has compared Thompkins to Tracy McGrady, Kevin Garnett, and Tim Duncan. That's indeed lofty praise. The surprising one to me was Tracy McGrady. I don't think Thompkins has McGrady's speed and athleticism, but I'm willing to be convinced.
Get better, Thompkins. The Pre-Season NIT is around the corner, and we'll need you.
