Isiah Thomas carried the offensive load in a season-ending 104-92 loss to the Hawks on Thursday, scoring 25 points with three rebounds, 10 assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer in 43 minutes.
He just needs some help on offense. The Celtics offense just falls apart when Thomas is out there in his All-Star season. The Celtics are playing with house money on IT after the Suns traded him away, so they will continue to feature him. They will likely add some help for Thomas on the offensive end, but the Pizza Guy should be ready to roll as a top-50 pick in drafts next season. Apr 28 - 10:53 PM

Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will be in the starting lineup for Thursday's Game 6 against the Hawks.

The Celtics will go with the same starting lineup they've been using of Thomas, Evan Turner, Jae Crowder, Jonas Jerebko and Amir Johnson for Game 6, and Thomas will look to bounce back from a disappointing Game 5 performance for Thursday's home game.

Isaiah Thomas (ankle) was moving around well during Thursday's shootaround, and his ankle didn't appear to be wrapped in anything other than KT tape.

All signs are pointing towards Thomas giving it a go tonight, and he should be able to bounce back from Tuesday's disappointing 3-of-12 shooting performance in front of the Boston home crowd for Game 6. We'll have official confirmation closer to tip-off, but it would be surprising to see Thomas on the sidelines Thursday night.

Coach Brad Stevens said all signs are pointing to Isaiah Thomas (ankle) playing in Game 6 on Thursday.

"Isaiah seems positive about [his ankle] and feels good," Stevens said. Thomas did not return from his ankle roll on Tuesday, but there has never been any cause for concern. Thomas did not score in the first half on Tuesday and only finished with seven points. Now that he's back in Boston, expect a bounce back.

Danny Ainge said it's very likely that Isaiah Thomas (ankle) will play in Thursday's Game 6 against the Hawks.

Thomas exited Tuesday's blowout loss to the Hawks during the fourth quarter with a "mild left ankle sprain" and did not return, but he also said after the game that he'll be a go for Game 6 "playing no matter what." With Avery Bradley (hamstring) sidelined, the Celtics absolutely need IT4 if they hope to have any shot of securing a Game 6 win, so it would be very surprising to see Thomas miss that one.

Isaiah Thomas (ankle) said that he will play in Game 6 on Thursday.

The Celtics called the injury a "mild left ankle sprain," but Thomas said that it's just a tweak. The Celtics were losing by nearly 30 points when he left the game in the fourth quarter, so it sounds like they held him out as a precaution. Thomas didn't play well with just seven points on 3-of-12 shooting, so he will need to be much better on Thursday to keep his team in this series.

Isaiah Thomas has been diagnosed with a "mild" left ankle sprain and will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks.

It doesn't sound serious and the Celtics are going to be cautious since they are being blown out in Game 5. Barring a surprise, this means that Thomas should be ready for Game 6 in Boston on Thursday. If Thomas' ankle somehow keeps him out on Thursday, Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier would benefit. Thomas finished with seven points, three assists, one boards and three turnovers.
Apr 26 - 10:45 PM

Isaiah Thomas (ankle) left Tuesday's game vs. the Hawks and went back to the locker room.

He landed awkwardly on his left ankle after a layup and jogged to the locker room with a slight limp. The Celtics were losing by nearly 30 points when Thomas left the game in the fourth quarter, so his night is likely done. We'll have an update momentarily.
Apr 26 - 10:39 PM

Isaiah Thomas followed up his career game on Friday with 28 points during Game 4, making 11-of-23 FGs and 4-of-5 FTs with six assists, four rebounds, two blocks and one steal.

Better yet, Thomas committed only one turnover in 43 minutes. The Hawks couldn't keep him out of the paint on Friday, and although he wasn't as successful tonight (4-of-8 from within four feet) he still made critical shots when Boston needed a lift. The All-Star guard is giving Atlanta all they can handle and more this series, averaging 28.3 points and 3.0 triples through four games.
Apr 24 - 9:15 PM

Isaiah Thomas will not be suspended for Game 4 against the Hawks on Sunday.

The NBA appears to have deemed Thomas' shot to the head of Dennis Schroder an accident. This is huge news for the Celtics because Thomas is the biggest part of the offense. He'll have a tough time repeating his 42-point gem from Friday, but expect him to get plenty of shots.
Apr 23 - 2:43 PM

Isaiah Thomas put the Celtics on his back during a 111-103 win over the Hawks in Game 3 on Friday, scoring a career-high 42 points with four rebounds, one assist, one steal and five 3-pointers.

It's the most points he's scored in any game in his career. Thomas scored 43 points combined in Game 1 and 2, but he needed 39 shots. In this win, he made 12-of-24 from the field while making 13-of-15 from the line. This was the first 40-plus scoring game from a Celtic since Rajon Rondo in 2012. Thomas did strike Dennis Schroder in the head during this game, but it did look like an accident. The NBA will be looking at this, but for now expect him to play in Game 4 as the Celtics look to even the series.
Apr 22 - 11:41 PM

Isaiah Thomas did not seem overly concerned when addressing his 33 percent shooting percentage through the first two games of Boston's first-round series saying, "the best players figure it out."

"There’s always two guys on me, at least, when I don’t have the ball. They’re looking in my eyes, they’re face-guarding me," Thomas said. "The best players figure it out... I’m always going to continue to be confident." The loss of Avery Bradley (hamstring) has really hurt the Celtics' spacing, which has made it easier for the Hawks to load up on IT4.That being said, Thomas should be able to put up quality statistics through Boston's first-round series, but efficiency will likely be an issue.

Isaiah Thomas scored 16 points on 4-of-15 shooting in Tuesday's 89-72 loss to the Hawks in Game 2, adding three boards, two assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes.

The Celtics looked horrible on offense and shot just 31.8 percent from the field. To make matters worse, they were held to seven points in the first quarter which is the fewest points in the first quarter of a playoff game since the NBA instituted the shot clock in 1954. Thomas had 27 points with eight assists in Game 1, so he should have no trouble bouncing back in Game 3. He needs to step up in a big way for the Celtics to have a chance to win this series.

Isaiah Thomas scored a game-high 27 points during a 102-101 loss to the Hawks on Saturday, adding three rebounds, eight assists, one steal, one block and four 3-pointers in 37 minutes.

He was very busy on offense, making 8-of-21 from the field in the loss. Thomas will really be the focal point of the offense with the Celtics losing Avery Bradley (hamstring), so expect him to flirt with 30 points going forward despite the tough matchup.
Apr 16 - 10:18 PM

Isaiah Thomas (wrist) struggled from the field on Wednesday, shooting just 4-of-15, but he made 11-of-12 free throws to finish with 21 points, six assists and four rebounds.

Thomas hasn't fared well against the Heat lately, averaging just 13.3 points in their past four matchups, but his wrist issue might have been the problem tonight. Thomas added one steal and a pair of 3-pointers in 34 minutes of action, and the victory helped Boston lock up the No. 5 seed in a tight playoff race. Sore wrist or not, he's in no danger of missing any games.
