Thompson was one of 29 players invited to Canada’s training camp on Tuesday and was widely expected to be a key member of the roster.
The 28-year-old averaged 10.9 points and a career-best 10.2 rebounds per game in 43 games during the 2018-19 season. Thompson missed extensive time throughout the season due to a lingering left foot injury.
Thompson most recently played for Canada in a qualifier for this summer’s FIBA World Cup, helping his country to a 85-77 win over Brazil in September 2018.
Training camp takes place from August 4-6 at Toronto’s OVO Athletic Centre, which usually hosts the Toronto Raptors.
Canada will play Nigeria in two exhibition contests on August 7 and 9 before the tournament officially kicks off.
Canada’s first game of the FIBA World Cup is against Australia on September 1.
