Thomas scrimmages with other Cavs
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.”
Cleveland’s LeBron James celebrated after scoring against the Sacramento Kings.
