Cavs GM Koby Altman Reveals Team's Plan for Isaiah Thomas' Hip Injury

  • An orthopedic hip surgeon offers a few scenarios for Isaiah Thomas

The 28-year-old made no mention of when he would be able to return from a hip injury that sidelined him for the final three games of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cavs, but detailed how hard it was to inform wife Kayla and sons James and Jaiden that the family would be moving.

Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman said in a press conference Wednesday there is no timetable for when Thomas will be ready to play this season.

Thomas went on to share his sadness for leaving Boston but also his excitement of joining the Cavaliers. However, it remains to be seen exactly when we'll see #3 on the court, as he continues to rehab from an injured hip which could reportedly keep him out of action for months. Boston ultimately agreed to send Cleveland an additional draft pick - the Miami Heat's 2020 second-rounder - to complete the swap.

The post also includes lyrics from a Nipsey Hussle song, with Thomas writing, "They say every man is defined by his reaction to any given situation. And I'm excited." Obviously, Thomas feels confident about Cleveland's chances of winning the Eastern Conference next season and maybe winning the National Basketball Association championship again.

But an expiring contract - coupled with a desire for a new, maximum deal - and a hip injury that itself nearly derailed the trade led Celtics boss Danny Ainge to trade Thomas to Cleveland along with Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a first-round draft pick.

Dressed smartly in a wine-colored sport coat for his introductory news conference, Thomas said the Celtics' decision to trade him was initially painful.

"Cleveland. They traded me for Kyrie". LeBron James has given no indication of his plans beyond this upcoming season, and by keeping the pick, the Cavaliers can rebuild right away if he decides to leave.

There are still a number of arguments concerning Isiah Thomas, who wrote a heartfelt goodbye to Boston Celtics on Wednesday, September 6th, but didn't talk the persisting hip injury that has put his playing availability for the start of the 2017-18 National Basketball Association regular season at risk. "I just told her 'I'm going to Cleveland, ' and five minutes later she passed".

"We know once we hit the playoffs, if we're healthy, we're going to be a tough team to beat", Lue said. "It could be a part of a major trade package for the Cavs later this year, or, conceivably, the Cavs could make that pick next June", Vardon said.

"It was surprising, definitely caught time off guard", Thomas said when asked about his initial thoughts on the trade.
