Isaiah Thomas News

Isaiah Thomas    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Isaiah Thomas made 3-of-15 from the field for seven points with one rebound, five assists, one block and five turnovers in 25 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday. He's clearly lacking a rapport with his team and he hinted that he had to stand up for himself against Rajon Rondo when he was ejected on Wednesday. Thomas isn't a part of the Lakers' future and it's a mystery what the team will do with him once Lonzo Ball comes back. Expect Thomas to be a mid-round player as long as he's active.

Isaiah Thomas was ejected early in Wednesday's game after an argument with Rajon Rondo, finishing with three points, two assists and one rebound in five minutes. Both players were hit with technicals, but they continued to jaw at each other so the refs tossed them both. It looked like Rondo was more of the aggressor in the situation, but neither guy should face further repercussions from the league. Without IT available, we're likely to see a ton of Josh Hart while Tyler Ennis could also crack the rotation.

Isaiah Thomas said he expects to be even better when the Lakers take on the Pelicans on Wednesday. "As I get more familiar with the guys and playbook, it will be even better, especially in close games, executing down the stretch," Thomas said. He had a strong debut for the Lakers on Saturday with 22 points, one rebound, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointer in 31 minutes, but he did have some turnover problems late and it didn't help that he's not familiar with most of the plays. His fantasy value should be fine even when Lonzo Ball (knee) gets back.

Isaiah Thomas scored 22 points during his Lakers debut against the Mavs in a 130-123 loss on Saturday, adding one rebound, six assists, one steal and four 3-pointer in 31 minutes. He came off the bench and looked a lot better as a scorer, making 7-of-12 from the field and all four from the line. As Thomas has said before, he wants to be the go-to scorer he was last year and he had that opportunity off the bench. "I felt like I got my powers back with this team," Thomas said after the game. Even if he sticks on the bench, Thomas should be able to boost his fantasy in the up-tempo Lakers system.

Isaiah Thomas will come off the bench when he makes his Lakers debut ‪Saturday night against the Dallas Mavericks, according to Chris Hayes of ESPN. ESPN is reporting that coach Luke Walton and Thomas had dinner together in Dallas on Friday and discussed expectations and roles. The plan is for Thomas to eventually work himself into position to join the starting unit, according to ESPN's sources. It will be interesting to see how many minutes Thomas plays over his first few games in L.A. Lonzo Ball (knee) is not expected to return to game action until after the All-Star break, at which point there will be a bit of a logjam at point guard.

Isaiah Thomas is expected to be available for Saturday against the Mavs. Coach Luke Walton wouldn't say how much Isaiah Thomas would play. There was some talk that Thomas wants to start for the Lakers, and presumably he'll get his chance to while Lonzo Ball (knee) is out. When Ball is back, it's going to be very tough for IT to hold the starting job at the point -- Kentavious Caldwell-Pope could also move to the bench. Thomas' fantasy value improves while he's active with the Lakers.

Isaiah Thomas has been traded to the Lakers in the deal sending Jordan Clarkson and Larry Nance to the Cavaliers. Channing Frye is also headed to L.A. as part of the deal, along with a first-round pick from the Cavs. Josh Hart's fantasy stock dips with IT in town, and this gives the Lakers more leeway to ease back Lonzo Ball from his knee injury. Thomas is heading into unrestricted free agency and will reportedly be seeking a max deal, but L.A. reportedly hopes to retain him. The Lakers play with the fastest pace in the league, which can only help Thomas, so fantasy owners should be satisfied with his landing spot.

Isaiah Thomas made 4-of-8 FGs and 2-of-2 FTs to score 13 points on Wednesday, with seven assists, three rebounds, three 3-pointers and three turnovers. Head coach Tyronn Lue is in the hot seat right now, and Thomas added fuel recently by questioning the coach staff's ability to make in-game adjustments. In response, Lue said, "That's not true." Thomas could do the team a favor by knocking down more shots, as this is just the fourth time in 15 appearances this season that he's made at least half of his shot attempts. He also looked openly exasperated when LeBron declined to pass to him late in OT, and this situation could get worse before it gets better.

Isaiah Thomas scored 11 points on 3-of-13 shooting in another loss on Tuesday vs. the Magic, adding eight assists, one steal and one triple in 30 minutes. Thomas got off to a nice start offensively, but disappeared with zero points in the second half. His defense has been borderline brutal and he's not making up for it on the offensive end -- he's shooting 30.5% from the field in his last eight games. "When adversity hits, we go our separate ways," Thomas said after Cleveland blew a 21-point lead. These are dark days for both Cavs fans and Thomas' fantasy owners.

Thomas accounted for 12 points (5-13 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds and three assists across 26 minutes in Saturday's 120-88 loss to the Rockets. Thomas' scoring total, albeit modest, was enough to co-lead the Cavaliers in another blowout loss. The 28-year-old has nine straight double-digit scoring efforts, but he's only eclipsed 20 points in two of those contests. He's provided serviceable numbers in the categories of rebounds and assists as well, but unsurprisingly, his numbers are significantly down in several categories as compared to his last two Celtics seasons.
