Isaiah Thomas News

Isaiah Thomas    G  Cavaliers

 

 

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.

Isaiah Thomas    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Isaiah Thomas struggled with his shot during Saturday's blowout loss to the Rockets, scoring 12 points on 5-of-13 shooting to go with five boards, three assists and three turnovers in 26 minutes. Thomas struggled from start to finish, as he was never really able to find his rhythm, which has been a consistent issue for him this season. The Cavs need him to step up his game with Kevin Love (hand) out of commission for the next eight weeks, but that’s easier said than done, and perhaps a slightly unrealistic expectation considering he just got back from a 7.5-month layoff. He should get things going eventually, so owners just need to remain patient.

Thomas had 13 points (2-15 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 9-9 FT), six assists, five rebounds, and four steals in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 91-89 win over the Heat. Thomas took part in his first back-to-back set of 2017-18, but he struggled mightily from the field. It was his ability to get to the free-throw line and contribute in other areas (season highs in boards and swipes) that saved an otherwise abysmal night, that and the fact that the Cavaliers managed to escape with a win. Thomas will now have a few days off to rest in advance of Saturday's matchup with the Rockets.

Isaiah Thomas finished Wednesday's 91-89 victory with 13 points, six assists, five rebounds and four steals, making 2-of-15 field goals and 9-of-9 free throws in 30 minutes. The Cavs lost Kevin Love (hand) for approximately 6-8 weeks, which should clarify Thomas' role as the No. 2 option offensively. The steals helped boost his line tonight, and fantasy owners have no choice but to follow IT's own advice and remain patient. "Coming back, I just want it all right now, and that's just not realistic," he said. "I know one day soon it'll come back, and I'll be the player I've always been." He has demonstrated early-round upside, so hang in there.

Thomas (rest) will play in Wednesday's game against the Heat, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Thomas has been rested in one side of each back-to-back set he's been a part of since returning from injury, but for the first time, will play in both games considering his availability for Wednesday's contest. Look for Thomas to start at point guard as usual and while the Cavaliers aren't reporting any sort of restrictions at this point in time, there's certainly a chance he's closely monitored.

Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade (personal, shoulder) will be available to play Wednesday vs. the Heat. This will be Thomas' first back-to-back set of the season, so his minutes could be somewhat limited tonight. That said, with Kevin Love (hand) out, there will be more shots for guys IT and Wade, so season-long owners shouldn't hesitate to get these guys active.

Thomas scored 14 points (5-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding seven assists and two rebounds in 27 minutes during Sunday's 121-104 win over the Pistons. He's now scored in double digits in six straight games, averaging 17.3 points, 4.3 assists, 1.8 three-pointers and 1.5 boards over that stretch. Those numbers still aren't close to what he produced over the last couple of seasons, but given his lengthy recovery from offseason hip surgery, Thomas may not start to look like his old self until later in the second half.

Isaiah Thomas had 14 points, seven assists, two rebounds and one 3-pointer in 27 minutes vs. Detroit on Sunday. Thomas went 5-of-12 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line tonight, and showed glimpses of his old explosive self. In another bit of good news for fantasy owners, coach Ty Lue didn't ruled out Thomas playing during back-to-back games on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. "[Thomas] wasn’t supposed to [be cleared for consecutive games] at first, but now just said let’s see how he feels going into it and we’ll go from there," said Lue. This could easily become a game-time situation on Wednesday.
