Isaiah Thomas News

Isaiah Thomas    G  Cavaliers

 

 

Isaiah Thomas said that playing in games is the "only thing" that will help him get his conditioning back because the Cavs "dont practice." "That's the only thing that's gonna help me, because we don't practice. Only thing that's gonna help me is getting reps, running up and down the floor, getting my hip, getting my body accustomed to taking a beating and to running up and down the floor, getting in basketball shape." Thomas might not really start rolling until after the All-Star break, but the fact that he was able to log 32 minutes in Monday's loss to the Warriors was encouraging.

Thomas (rest) registered 19 points (8-21 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists and one rebound across 32 minutes in Monday's 118-108 loss to the Warriors. Thomas was back in action after receiving the night off for rest on Friday against the Pacers. The 28-year-old logged a season-high amount of minutes in the process, certainly an encouraging development with respect to the overall fitness of his surgically repaired hip. Thomas has managed three double-digit scoring efforts in the five games he's seen action in thus far, even though his shot is undeniably still a work in progress; factoring in Monday's contest, he's shot no better than 38.1 percent in the last three games.

Isaiah Thomas returned from a maintenance rest on Monday but hit just 8-of-21 shots and 1-of-7 3-pointers for 19 points and four assists in 32 minutes. Maybe we should start calling him the 'Rust Guy' instead of the 'Pizza Guy,' as it's going to take him a minute to shake off the rust after missing seven months with his hip injury. The good news is that he played 32 minutes and hasn't had any issues with the hip, so it should only be a matter of time before he gets the ship righted.

Thomas will return to action Monday after resting Friday against the Pacers, Cavs broadcaster Fred McLeod reports. Cleveland held Thomas out of Friday's contest on the second night of a back-to-back, but the expectation all along was that he'd be back in the lineup for Monday's meeting with the defending champs. Thomas struggled mightily in his last game against Toronto on Thursday, finishing with just four points on 2-of-15 shooting in 25 minutes.

Thomas, as expected, will rest and not play during Friday's contest against the Pacers, Marla Ridenour of the Akron Beacon Journal reports. The Cavs are continuing to exercise caution with Thomas, who is coming off a hip injury, resting him on back-to-backs. With Dwyane Wade (rest) also sidelined, Jose Calderon, J.R. Smith and Kyle Korver are all candidates to see additional run.

Isaiah Thomas, who scored just four points on 2-of-15 shots vs. the Raptors on Thursday, will rest on Friday vs. the Pacers. He's not cleared for back-to-back sets and we haven't heard when the Cavs will lift those restrictions. Thomas has looked rusty for the most part since his return and Toronto exposed him on defense tonight despite missing Kyle Lowry. It's just a matter of time before Thomas returns to All-NBA form, so his fantasy owners should sit tight for now. He added three assists, two rebounds and one block in 25 minutes.

Isaiah Thomas is officially starting vs. the Raptors on Thursday. The mystery is over. Thomas' owners can expect to see him play minutes in the lower- to mid-20s tonight, but coach Tyronn Lue confirmed that he will rest on Friday vs. the Pacers. We'll let you know how he fares after the game.

Thomas, despite a previous report that he would sit out Thursday's contest for rest, will play during the game and instead sit out Friday against the Pacers, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports. It appears the reporter who stated that Thomas was out misheard coach Tyronn Lue when he explained the situation. Since returning from his hip injury, Thomas has averaged 15.0 points and 3.3 assists across 19.7 minutes per game.

Updating a previous report, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said Isaiah Thomas will play on Thursday vs. the Raptors and rest on Friday vs. Indiana. We are seeing a lot of conflicting reports right now, so we'll be on the lookout for confirmation leading up the 8:00 ET tip-off. If Thomas does play, expect him to see minutes in the lower- to mid-20s. Stay tuned.

Isaiah Thomas is expected to rest vs. Toronto on Thursday, the first half of a back-to-back set for the Cavs. Jose Calderon should jump into the starting PG spot and this should be a trend for the foreseeable future, as Cleveland plays it safe with Thomas after his long recovery from a hip injury. Calderon doesn't have much appeal even as a streaming option, though, so there are no clear winners here.
