Isaiah Thomas News

Isaiah Thomas    G  Celtics

 

 

Isaiah Thomas is "dealing with more than just a tear" in his hip, a source with direct knowledge of the situation told Jason Lloyd of The Athletic. The source claims that "some of those secondary issues in the hip [Thomas] has played with for years now, such as a loss of cartilage and some arthritis, are complicating his healing process." The Cavs have refused to discuss details of the injury publicly and are not willing to offer a timetable as to when Thomas might be healthy enough to suit up for Cleveland. We'll likely get a medical update at the start of training camp in late September, but it looks like Thomas will be a risky pick in fantasy drafts this year.

Coach Ty Lue said on Thursday that Isaiah Thomas (hip) "is not going to be starting the season." This was a surprising quote and maybe he misspoke, but this would be massive news. Maybe he meant training camp, maybe he meant preseason, but here we are. General manager Koby Altman said he didn't want to make the press conference about Thomas' hip, so that Lue quote certainly would've changed that. The Cavs have said they're looking to treat Thomas without surgery, which is the same plan the Celtics had. Expect another update on IT, but fantasy owners can't take him in the early rounds right now.

During Thomas' (hip) introductory press conference Thursday, GM Koby Altman said the goal is to have Thomas back "at some point this year", but he wouldn't provide a concrete timetable for a return, Tim Bontemps of the Washington Post reports.

Cavs GM Koby Altman wouldn't offer a timetable for Isaiah Thomas (hip). The first two questions of Cleveland's press conference were about Thomas' hip, but Altman stepped in and shut them both down. Altman added the Cavs won't rush Thomas' return, and based on Thomas' comments shortly after, it sounds like his rehab is still limited to the weight room. The good news is that Thomas is still not expected to have surgery. He should be considered doubtful for the season opener, meaning Derrick Rose and Jose Calderon will have to hold down the fort at PG.

Isaiah Thomas is reportedly parting ways with his current representatives at Excel Sports Management. Thomas was part of a high-stakes staring contest between the Celtics and the Cavaliers this offseason, with the Cavs eventually extracting a future second-round pick due to concerns about the health of Thomas' hip. He's headed for free agency in 2018 and has said repeatedly that he expects to earn a max contract, so he'll be eager to put this summer's drama behind him.

The Celtics are not sure exactly when Isaiah Thomas suffered the labrum tear in his right hip, or precisely how long he was dealing with the injury, according to sources of ESPN. While the Celtics have implied that Thomas initially suffered the hip injury during a March 15 matchup against the Timberwolves, Tom Haberstroh's reporting suggests that the injury could have occurred as early as December, when Thomas received a PRP injection in his "upper right thigh" which the team initially deemed a "groin strain." The Cavs have yet to offer an official timetable for Thomas' return, but the fact that he's still not running is concerning with training camp less than a month away. If the Cavs' medical staff deems that surgery will be required to fix this issue, Thomas will be looking at a 6-10 month timetable, putting his status for the entire 2017-18 season in doubt.

The Cavs are not willing to put a timeline on when Isaiah Thomas (hip) could return to action, according to Jason Lloyd of The Athletic. The reporter adds that a source with experience dealing with this kind of hip problem said it could be until January or the break. To be fair, every injury is different and we don't know if this source had surgery, which is something IT opted not to do -- it could've been to a different part of the hip, as well. While this reporter is one of the more credible ones on the beat, don't put too much stock in the guess on the timeline. For now, Thomas really can't be drafted in the early rounds, especially after he lost a chunk of value from the trade itself.
