Isaiah Thomas (right hip strain) has been playing through injury since the Wizards series and his injury is "considered significant," according to Chris Mannix of The Vertical. The report adds the Celtics had "doubts Thomas could play in Game 7" on Sunday, but he's been gutting it out since. Thomas hasn't quite looked right in some time, so perhaps this explains it. After not playing in the second half tonight, he'll likely have an MRI coming in the next day and the Celtics seem like the have no chance to make this a series. If IT is out, Marcus Smart will get some heavy run while Terry Rozier would also have to step up.

Isaiah Thomas (right hip) will not return to Friday's game against the Cavs. He was limping at the end of the first half and the team is calling it a right hip strain. The Celtics were dominated 72-31 for the biggest halftime deficit in the history of the NBA playoffs, so there's no reason to bring IT back. He was terrible in this game, scoring just two points in 18 minutes. Marcus Smart started the third quarter for Thomas.

Isaiah Thomas said the Celtics are not afraid of the Cavs. "They're not Space Jam," Thomas said. "They just happened to play better than us in Game 1." The Celtics starters were destroyed on Wednesday and played just eight minutes together. Coach Brad Stevens could opt to make a change, but he could also change his plan and look to double LeBron James more.

Isaiah Thomas struggled in 38 minutes on Wednesday, making 7-of-19 shots with two 3-pointers for 17 points, 10 assists, one rebound, one steal and four turnovers. Thomas was trapped often by the Cavs' defense, as expected, but he just didn't have it going offensively -- he missed shots he usually makes, committed some costly turnovers, and the Celtics looked lost in the first half. Thomas was a mere 1-of-3 from the FT line tonight, after averaging 10.5 made free throws vs. Cleveland during the regular season. He should fare better in Game 2 on Friday.

Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 29 points on 9-of-21 shooting in Monday's Game 7 win over the Wizards. Playing in his first ever Game 7, Thomas said before the game that he doesn't "believe in pressure" and he backed those comments up with a monster performance. He dished out 12 assists in 40 minutes, hitting 8-of-9 free throws with two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers. It's not a bad day to be a Boston fan, as the Celtics will move on to face the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals and have a 25.0 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick during the draft lottery on Tuesday night.

Isaiah Thomas scored 27 points during a Game 6 92-91 loss in Washington on Friday, adding three rebounds, seven assists, five turnovers and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes. It looked like it was Isaiah Time in the fourth with a couple clutch IT jumpers with two minutes left, but he had a bad turnover late that led to a Brad Beal three, and John Wall blocked IT on the next possession. If not for that sequence, the Celtics are probably getting ready for the Cavs. Plus, coach Brad Stevens pulled out a lot of nice after-timeout plays and you could say he out-coach Scott Brooks today. The Celtics were living on fast-break points with 17 in this game while they had a lot of perimeter points outside of that with only 26 points in the paint. TD Garden should be fired up for Game 7 on Monday.
