Isaiah Thomas Nearly Ready To Begin 5-On-5 Practice

Isaiah Thomas injury update Cavs target early January return report says

The Cavaliers are going to do everything it takes to make sure Isaiah Thomas is ready for his big debut.

The Cavaliers will either have Thomas travel to Canton, Ohio to play with their G-League affiliate, the Canton Charge, or the players will go to Cleveland's practice facility to have five-on-five scrimmages with Thomas.

Those two days are expected to afford Thomas his first chance to get in his first full court 5-on-5 practice since joining the team following a trade with the Boston Celtics in August. The Cavs play the Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day, the Sacramento Kings on December 27, and the Utah Jazz on December 30.

Thomas' return is projected to be sometime within the next three weeks, with the January 3 return to the Garden circled.

All signs seems to be pointing to Thomas being on the floor for his return to the Garden if all goes well over the next two weeks in what will be perhaps the most anticipated game in the National Basketball Association this season.

With a source telling ESPN that Thomas is unlikely to play before/in their Christmas Day game against the Warriors, Yahoo quickly came through with a report that suggested that the Cavs are targeting an early January return for the 28-year-old Thomas.

A team source told ESPN that the final determination for when Thomas would play would be a joint decision agreed upon by Thomas, the Cavs' front office, and the Cavs' medical staff. The two-time All-Star would love to suit up against his former team. They've won 18 of their last 19 games, and LeBron James is debatably having the best season of his entire historic career.
