Isaiah Thomas News

Isaiah Thomas (hip) still hasn't had his appointment to determine if he needs surgery. Based on the reports over the last two months, Thomas is unlikely to need surgery on his hip. On Friday, coach Brad Stevens said Thomas is feeling better, which isn't much of an update. Usually, players opt to have surgery earlier in the offseason to help them get to rehab sooner, so hopefully IT will be ready in October.

Isaiah Thomas isn't interested in re-signing with the Celtics on a discount next summer. "I'm a max [contract] guy, so I deserve the max," Thomas said. "They know they've got to bring the Brinks truck out." Thomas has one year left of his four-year, $27 million deal, so he was one of the most underpaid stars in the league and it's understandable that he wants to cash in. The Celtics already have two max contract players in Gordon Hayward and Al Horford, so they gave Avery Bradley away for cheap because of Thomas' upcoming free agency. Thomas envisions himself in Boston for the foreseeable future and said he wants to bring home a championship, so he sounds confident that the Celtics will give him a max deal.

Celtics' head coach Brad Stevens said that it's unlikely Isaiah Thomas will require surgery to repair his strained right hip. "Every indication is that he feels good and will be ready to go," said Stevens when asked for an update on Thomas. Thomas is scheduled for another checkup sometime next week, but this shouldn't be anything that impacts his status for the 2017-18 season. In his second full season with the Celtics, Thomas produced first-round value behind averages of 28.9 points, 5.9 dimes and 3.2 triples per contest, so he'll make for a fine early-round selection on draft day.

President Danny Ainge said that Isaiah Thomas (hip) is doing "much better" in his rehab from his hip injury. Ainge said it's still possible Thomas could need surgery. The GM believes he'll have further imaging done on Thomas in mid-to-late July, and then they'll figure out the next step in the treatment process. Thomas is expected to be ready for camp, but Ainge did say the team is "hoping" IT will be ready to roll.

Isaiah Thomas said he's willing to pass up an extension this summer if it means the Celtics can bring in some help in free agency. Thomas has one year left on his deal for just $6.2 million and will be an unrestricted free agent during the summer of 2018 if he doesn't sign an extension. "We need the best possible player that's gonna help us win, and I'm with that," Thomas said. "Anything Danny [Ainge] and this organization need me to do to help bring even more talent to this city, I'm all for that." Thomas has joked in the past that he wants the Celtics to "bring out the Brink's truck," but it sounds like he will wait another year to give Boston as much financial flexibility as possible.

Speaking with reporters on Friday, Isaiah Thomas reiterated his desire to stay in Boston. "Boston's changed my career, changed my life. I would love to win championships here," said Thomas. GM Danny Ainge and the Celtics have some tough decisions to make over the next year. Thomas has just one season left on his contract before becoming a free agent in the summer of 2018. Would Boston be willing to pay Thomas upwards of $175 million to sign him to a long-term extension before he hits free agency? Might they consider trading him, especially now that Boston has the No. 1 pick in the draft and is expected to take PG Markelle Fultz? Stay tuned.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) said that while he would prefer not to have surgery, he acknowledged that it is an option. "We're waiting on the swelling to go down," Thomas told reporters on Friday. "Hopefully I don't have to have surgery, but I know that is an option." Even if Thomas does undergo surgery on his injured hip, he will likely get it done soon, giving him plenty of time to recover before the start of the 2017-18 season. The million dollar question in Boston is which new teammates will share the floor with Thomas at the start of next season.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) won't decide on a treatment plan until the swelling in his hip goes down according to GM Danny Ainge. "We don’t know if he needs surgery or what kind of surgery, or if that is a choice," Ainge said. "We’ll wait until the hip calms down, do more tests and get more opinions." There's still no word of a timetable, but Ainge added that it will be couple more weeks until a decision is made on a treatment plan. The Celtics are expected to draft Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 pick in the draft, but both players have talked about how they can coexist together and Thomas' fantasy value should be fine.
