The point guard has been sidelined with a hip injury since the last season’s playoffs, and it is still unknown when he will return.
According to the latest update, Thomas will return in December. Cavaliers fans expect him to be back before Christmas this year, but Isaiah Thomas recently teased them with a message on his Twitter account.
While his tweet might be related to something else, it appears that the superstar point guard.
Isaiah Thomas was the third-best scorer in the NBA last season with 28.9 points per game. He had a breakout season with the Boston Celtics, but his team couldn’t beat the Cavaliers in the playoffs. Thomas got injured during the series and he hasn’t played in a single game since then.
In the meantime, the Celtics traded the injured guard to Cleveland, and the Cavaliers fans are eager to see him play. Just a few days ago, Thomas was seen participating in a contact practice, and it seems that he’s recovering very fast. While the Cavaliers expect him to return before the end of the year, the point guard might be ahead of schedule.
“Locked in! It’s almost time,” is what Thomas posted on his Twitter account.
Isaiah Thomas’ tweet could mean anything, but he most likely teased his fans with a return date. Considering how quickly he is recovering, it wouldn’t be surprising if he returns very soon. The Cavaliers are shorthanded and Derrick Rose may not return to the team, so they could definitely use Thomas.
