Isaiah Thomas News

Isaiah Thomas    G  Celtics

 

 

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.

The Cavaliers and Celtics have reportedly agreed to terms on the deal centered around Isaiah Thomas and Kyrie Irving, with Boston adding a 2020 second-round pick. The Cavs were reportedly pushing for another first-round pick, but they settled on a final package of Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic, Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick, and Miami's 2020 second-round pick. It's still unclear when Thomas might return from his hip injury, which was the crux of this trade's delay.

In an interview with Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Thomas (hip) claimed he'll come back the same player following his injury, though he didn't give a specific timetable for a return. "There's never been an indication that I wouldn't be back, and there's never been an indication that this is something messing up my career," Thomas said. "Maybe I am not going to be back as soon this season as everyone wants me to be, but I'm going to be back, and I'm going to be the same player again. No doctor has told me anything different than that."

In an interview with ESPN, Isaiah Thomas said that he has made "significant progress" with his injured hip. "I am not damaged," Thomas said on Tuesday. "I'll be back, and I'll be the same player." Thomas' hip is the reason the trade between the Cavs and Celtics has stalled, as Cleveland wants additional compensation before completing the transaction. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN is reporting that the Cavaliers are no longer asking for a young player such as Jaylen Brown or Jayson Tatum, and he added that Cleveland "could be inclined to complete the deal for a late first-round pick or second-round considerations." The deadline to finalize the deal is 10 a.m. ET Thursday, but both teams can mutually agree to extend it. His status for opening night is still up in the air.

The Cavs medical staff reportedly have doubts as to whether or not Isaiah Thomas (hip) can make a full recovery without surgery. The Cavs are reportedly questioning the Celtics' diagnosis on Thomas' hip injury, which is why they're now seeking further compensation in the Kyrie Irving-Thomas swap, but reports coming out of Boston indicate that the Celtics have no interest in sweetening their initial offer. The two sides will have until Wednesday to mutually agree to the current deal that is in place, and most reports at the moment indicate that this trade will go through.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) has yet to begin a regimen of running this offseason according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The Cavaliers are worried about Thomas' hip and that's why the trade with the Celtics is on hold. The Cavs will reportedly ask the Celtics for additional compensation such as Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum or another first-round pick, but Boston will obviously play hardball. Wojnarowski added that the Cavaliers could threaten to veto the trade, but the Celtics might call their bluff since they're already giving up a ton as it is. If the trade doesn't go through by Wednesday night, both teams will need to mutually agree to extend the trade-review deadline.
