Isaiah Thomas (hip) will begin meeting with specialists on Monday. Thomas was ruled out of the postseason following an aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear, but he won't have a treatment plan set in stone until he meets with his doctors. Coach Brad Stevens said surgery is an option, so Thomas could be looking a lengthy rehab this summer. Marcus Smart will start Game 3 vs. Cleveland in Thomas' absence.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) will miss the remainder of this year’s postseason following an aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear. In layman's terms, there's a tear in the area in which the top part of his thigh bone meets his hip bone. Thomas initially hurt his hip on Mar. 15 and it cost him two games back then. He also aggravated this injury in Game 6 against the Wizards on May 12, and then again hurt it on Friday night. "Isaiah has worked tirelessly to manage this injury since it first occurred," said Celtics Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brian McKeon. "The swelling increased during the first two games against Cleveland, and in order to avoid more significant long-term damage to his hip, we could no longer allow him to continue." There's no word of a treatment plan yet, but labral tears could result in surgery, which may throw off IT's offseason plan. For the rest of the playoffs, Marcus Smart will get some heavy run while Terry Rozier will have to step up.

Isaiah Thomas (right hip strain) will be re-evaluated Saturday and may be forced to miss Game 3 vs. Cleveland on Sunday. Thomas missed the second half of Game 2, and it turns out he's been dealing with pain in his hip since last week. "He's had a nagging hip injury," coach Brad Stevens said. "He aggravated it pretty significantly last Friday in Washington in Game 6 (of the conference semifinals), went through a bunch of testing on Saturday and Sunday and was able to play Monday, (but) hasn't felt great either of the two days." Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier will see an uptick in minutes if Thomas is sidelined for Game 3.

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.
