WASHINGTON, D.C. - A sourceclose to Cleveland Cavaliers point guard Isaiah Thomas told ESPN that his camp has ruled out a return before Christmas, taking Tuesday's road game against the Milwaukee Bucks and Thursday's home game against the Chicago Bulls off the table for his Cavs debut. Cleveland has relied on him heavily to carry the offense, and the defense - which looked terrible to start the season - has slowly begun to turn around. They have since won 18 of their last 19 games.
This makes it sound like Thomas either doesn't have a timetable to return quite yet, or that the timetable of "the first week of January against either Portland, Boston, or Orlando" is inaccurate. Instead, the Cavaliers have been forced to work around his injury. Derrick Rose, Jose Calderon and even Iman Shumpert have started at the point guard position attempting to fill in the vacant spot.
Isaiah Thomas is targeting a return from his hip tear in the first week of January, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.
As most hoops fans know, Thomas, now 28 years of age, has been dealing with a hip injury he sustained last season that got aggravated in the Eastern Conference Playoffs. Their main goal is making sure that he's 100 percent when the games matter the most. The Cavs have been playing tremendous basketball without Thomas and will only reach new heights with him.
