Cavs should not rush Isaiah Thomas onto court, Jeff Schudel says

Isaiah Thomas says his hip injury will not prevent him from being the player he was, but the Cavs should not let him return to playing too soon.
The blockbuster trade sending guard Kyrie Irving to the Celtics for guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round pick of the Brooklyn Nets was completed on Aug. 30 when the Celtics agreed to add a 2020 second-round pick acquired from Miami in the deal.

Now the question becomes when Thomas will be ready to play, because his injured hip is what held the trade up for a week in the first place.

“I am not damaged,” Thomas told ESPN. “Maybe I’m 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.”

Cavaliers training camp opens on Sept. 25. The first regular season game is Oct. 17 at Quicken Loans Arena against the Celtics.


There is no reason for the Cavaliers to rush Thomas into playing before he’s healthy, and if that takes the first two months of the season, or even into January, so be it. The bigger concern is Thomas trying to return too quickly so he can cash in on a big contract with the Cavaliers or another team next summer. The Cavs might have to rein him in.

You can count on Thomas complaining if his minutes are restricted early in his return because he will see that as affecting his chances for a better contract. He can make up for that with a dynamic effort in the playoffs.
