When Celtics writers were polled as to whether Isaiah Thomas would be a "long-term starter" during the 2015-16 season, 13 out of 14 replied "No."
Head coach Brad Stevens said in late July that Thomas "may end up starting" and IT has repeatedly said that he'd like to start, but he was spectacular as a sixth-man last season and may be stuck in that role. Most of the writers agreed that Thomas is the best player on the roster, but still believed that Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley will continue to start in the backcourt. We'll watch the PG position battle closely, but no matter where he begins the game Thomas will earn enough minutes to be a solid mid-round pick. Aug 23 - 6:32 PM

Isaiah Thomas tweeted that he worked out with Floyd Mayweather on Tuesday.

"4mile run with @FloydMayweather at 545am #TBE," tweeted the newest member of Team Money. Thomas will head into training camp with no ill effects from his wrist surgery in early July and will have a chance to battle for the starting point guard job with Marcus Smart. Thomas' fantasy value isn't entirely depended on whether or not he starts, but we'll keep an eye on the situation as he'll see a small bump in value if he's able to win the job.

Isaiah Thomas (wrist) recently dropped 50 points at the Seattle Pro-Am event.

Thomas also added 11 boards and seven dimes for good measure, but this is really notable because it's clear Thomas' wrist, which he had surgery on in early July, is good to go moving forward. After the Celtics said Thomas' procedure would have no long-term effects, it appears that is indeed the case.

Brad Stevens said on Thursday that Isaiah Thomas "may end up starting" next season.

"He may end up starting, he may end up coming off the bench, we'll see how that goes," said Stevens. If Thomas is able to secure the starting gig in Boston, Marcus Smart would likely head to the bench, and his fantasy value would take a decent hit with the demotion to the second-unit. This is a position battle we'll be watching closely this summer, but regardless of how Thomas enters the game, Thomas will be worth a mid-round selection on draft day.

Isaiah Thomas' recent hand and wrist surgery will have "no long-term ill effects," according to coach Brad Stevens.

The Celtics didn't even announce the surgery when it happened four weeks ago, and Thomas is already halfway through his 6-8 week timetable for recovery. He was a solid mid-round value despite playing only 26 minutes per game over the final two months of the season, averaging 19.0 points, 2.3 triples, 2.1 boards, 5.4 assists and 0.6 steals per game. Boston's backcourt is loaded with young talent but we don't expect Thomas' numbers to slip much, if at all, in 2015-16.
Jul 12 - 2:13 PM

Isaiah Thomas said on Saturday that he had surgery on his left hand four weeks ago in order to remove a cyst, and he is expected to be out 2-4 more weeks.

Thomas also said that the doctors "cleaned out a few things" in his wrist as well, but he is expected to be 100 percent in less than a month. This doesn't sound like anything too serious, and the good news is that he will have plenty of time before training camp to fully recover. Marcus Smart looks like he really improved this summer, so Thomas should continue his role as the sixth man on the Celtics next season.

Isaiah Thomas said that he felt like a part of the Celtics future because GM Danny Ainge has asked for his input on free agency.

"Danny said if there’s any free agent out there I’m interested in, to let him know," Thomas said. "That has me excited. For him to ask for my input means a lot, because it means I’m definitely, right now, a part of the future, and they also value your word and what you think about the game of basketball." After being tossed aside in Sacramento and discarded in Phoenix, loyalty will go a long way with IT2.

Celtics president Danny Ainge said he thinks Isaiah Thomas is better-suited to coming off the bench.

While this might sound like an indictment of Thomas, Ainge said it's more about conserving the diminutive guard. "I think Isaiah is more suited for a bench role. Isaiah expends a ton of energy to score," the Celtics president said. Ainge also lauded Thomas' ability to score in the fourth quarter and left no doubt over the importance of Thomas to the Celtics' future.

Isaiah Thomas shot just 4-of-17 from the field during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, scoring 21 points with nine assists, five rebounds, one 3-pointer, on steal and four turnovers through 37 minutes of action.

Thomas struggled from the field, but he still got his points by going a perfect 12-of-12 from the charity stripe. Thomas' numbers made a major jump when he was traded to Boston, averaging 19.0 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.3 three-pointers per game through 21 games with the Celtics. He was a major reason why Boston was able to make the playoffs this season, and he figures to be a mid-round asset next year as Boston's sixth man.

Isaiah Thomas played just 21 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday during a Game 3 loss, making 2-of-9 from the field for five points with one rebound, two assists and one turnover.

After two 22-point games to open this series, Thomas just couldn't penetrate and disrupt the defense like he's been doing since he joined the Celtics. He didn't play down the stretch in this game which may have been due to the poor offensive showing. The Pizza Guy will likely get another chance to be the top scoring option in Game 4.

Isaiah Thomas was terrific during Game 2 on Tuesday with a team-high 22 points, seven assists and one steal in a tough 91-99 road loss.

The Celtics' bench outscored the Cavaliers' bench 51-7, which isn't shocking given their regular-season disparity -- Boston ranked first in bench scoring at 41.6 points per game, while Cleveland ranked 30th at 24.3 points. It's an advantage the Celts must continue to exploit if they hope to climb back from an 0-2 hole.
Apr 21 - 10:01 PM

Isaiah Thomas finished Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Cavaliers with a team-high 22 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 32 minutes off the bench.

It was Thomas' first double-double with the Celtics, but more impressively he joined Oscar Robertson and LeBron James as the only players to get at least 20 points, 10 assists and five rebounds in their NBA playoffs debut. His acquisition was a catalyst for the Celtics' playoff push after the All-Star break, and Boston got a bargain with three years remaining on his contract at a total of $19.7 million.
Apr 19 - 7:21 PM

Isaiah Thomas will rest vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

The Celtics are already without Avery Bradley (quad) and coach Brad Stevens said that he'll spread minutes evenly across his roster. That could lead to substantial minutes for seldom-used backups like Phil Pressey and James Young, though neither guy is a compelling fantasy play.
Apr 15 - 6:40 PM

Isaiah Thomas led Boston's reserves on Tuesday with 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting, three 3-pointers, one rebound and six assists in 27 minutes.

Thomas was averaging 23.2 points on 51.4 percent in his previous five games, so tonight's inaccuracy can be easily forgiven. He'll be even busier if Avery Bradley's bruised quad keeps him out on Wednesday, though coach Brad Stevens suggested after Tuesday's game that he'll spread minutes thinly across his active lineup.
Apr 14 - 10:27 PM

Isaiah Thomas looked fantastic during Sunday's blowout win over the Cavs, as he scored 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting (5-of-6 from the stripe), with six assists, two steals, two rebounds, two 3-pointers and one turnover through 22 minutes of action.

Thomas had a few highlight reel plays, including a Rajon Rondo-esque dish to Jonas Jerebko on a drive to the hoop that had fans at the TD Garden shouting "better than Rondo!" He's been fantastic through the month of April with averages of 21.4 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.4 three-pointers per game, and he's certainly established himself as a strong Sixth Man of the Year candidate.
