Thomas scrim­mages with other Cavs

Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - SPORTS -

IN­DE­PEN­DENCE, OHIO >> Cleve­land Cava­liers All-Star point guard Isa­iah Thomas played 4-on-4 on Wed­nes­day, a sig­nif­i­cant step in his re­cov­ery from a hip in­jury.

Thomas, who has yet to make his de­but with Cleve­land, scrim­maged along with in­jured for­ward Tris­tan Thomp­son, rook­ies Cedi Os­man and Ante Zizic, and mem­bers of the coach­ing staff.

With coach Ty­ronn Lue and mem­bers of the team’s front of­fice watch­ing in­tently from behind the bas­ket, Thomas moved freely and didn’t ap­pear to have any re­stric­tions dur­ing the half-court work­out that took place fol­low­ing the team’s morn­ing shootaround.

Lue re­ported that Thomas “looked good” and ab­sorbed some con­tact. It was the sec­ond straight day Thomas scrim­maged. How­ever, Lue did not pro­vide any up­date on when Thomas might play in a game.

Thomas, who was ac­quired dur­ing the sum­mer in the block­buster trade that sent Kyrie Irv­ing to the Bos­ton Celtics, has been mak­ing steady progress.

“At the end of the day it’s all about the next day,” LeBron James said as he kept an eye on his team­mates from the op­po­site cor­ner of Cleve­land Clin­ics Courts. “When they say they feel good the next day af­ter a work­out ses­sion, that’s great to know.”
