President Danny Ainge said that Isaiah Thomas (hip) is doing "much better" in his rehab from his hip injury.
Ainge said it's still possible Thomas could need surgery. The GM believes he'll have further imaging done on Thomas in mid-to-late July, and then they'll figure out the next step in the treatment process. Thomas is expected to be ready for camp, but Ainge did say the team is "hoping" IT will be ready to roll. Jun 23 - 4:35 PM

Isaiah Thomas said he's willing to pass up an extension this summer if it means the Celtics can bring in some help in free agency.

Thomas has one year left on his deal for just $6.2 million and will be an unrestricted free agent during the summer of 2018 if he doesn't sign an extension. "We need the best possible player that's gonna help us win, and I'm with that," Thomas said. "Anything Danny [Ainge] and this organization need me to do to help bring even more talent to this city, I'm all for that." Thomas has joked in the past that he wants the Celtics to "bring out the Brink's truck," but it sounds like he will wait another year to give Boston as much financial flexibility as possible.

Speaking with reporters on Friday, Isaiah Thomas reiterated his desire to stay in Boston.

"Boston's changed my career, changed my life. I would love to win championships here," said Thomas. GM Danny Ainge and the Celtics have some tough decisions to make over the next year. Thomas has just one season left on his contract before becoming a free agent in the summer of 2018. Would Boston be willing to pay Thomas upwards of $175 million to sign him to a long-term extension before he hits free agency? Might they consider trading him, especially now that Boston has the No. 1 pick in the draft and is expected to take PG Markelle Fultz? Stay tuned.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) said that while he would prefer not to have surgery, he acknowledged that it is an option.

"We're waiting on the swelling to go down," Thomas told reporters on Friday. "Hopefully I don't have to have surgery, but I know that is an option." Even if Thomas does undergo surgery on his injured hip, he will likely get it done soon, giving him plenty of time to recover before the start of the 2017-18 season. The million dollar question in Boston is which new teammates will share the floor with Thomas at the start of next season.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) won't decide on a treatment plan until the swelling in his hip goes down according to GM Danny Ainge.

"We don’t know if he needs surgery or what kind of surgery, or if that is a choice," Ainge said. "We’ll wait until the hip calms down, do more tests and get more opinions." There's still no word of a timetable, but Ainge added that it will be couple more weeks until a decision is made on a treatment plan. The Celtics are expected to draft Markelle Fultz with the No. 1 pick in the draft, but both players have talked about how they can coexist together and Thomas' fantasy value should be fine.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) will begin meeting with specialists on Monday.

Thomas was ruled out of the postseason following an aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear, but he won't have a treatment plan set in stone until he meets with his doctors. Coach Brad Stevens said surgery is an option, so Thomas could be looking a lengthy rehab this summer. Marcus Smart will start Game 3 vs. Cleveland in Thomas' absence.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) will miss the remainder of this year’s postseason following an aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear.

In layman's terms, there's a tear in the area in which the top part of his thigh bone meets his hip bone. Thomas initially hurt his hip on Mar. 15 and it cost him two games back then. He also aggravated this injury in Game 6 against the Wizards on May 12, and then again hurt it on Friday night. "Isaiah has worked tirelessly to manage this injury since it first occurred," said Celtics Chief Medical Officer Dr. Brian McKeon. "The swelling increased during the first two games against Cleveland, and in order to avoid more significant long-term damage to his hip, we could no longer allow him to continue." There's no word of a treatment plan yet, but labral tears could result in surgery, which may throw off IT's offseason plan. For the rest of the playoffs, Marcus Smart will get some heavy run while Terry Rozier will have to step up.

Isaiah Thomas (right hip strain) will be re-evaluated Saturday and may be forced to miss Game 3 vs. Cleveland on Sunday.

Thomas missed the second half of Game 2, and it turns out he's been dealing with pain in his hip since last week. "He's had a nagging hip injury," coach Brad Stevens said. "He aggravated it pretty significantly last Friday in Washington in Game 6 (of the conference semifinals), went through a bunch of testing on Saturday and Sunday and was able to play Monday, (but) hasn't felt great either of the two days." Marcus Smart and Terry Rozier will see an uptick in minutes if Thomas is sidelined for Game 3.
May 20 - 9:19 AM

Isaiah Thomas (right hip strain) has been playing through injury since the Wizards series and his injury is "considered significant," according to Chris Mannix of The Vertical.

The report adds the Celtics had "doubts Thomas could play in Game 7" on Sunday, but he's been gutting it out since. Thomas hasn't quite looked right in some time, so perhaps this explains it. After not playing in the second half tonight, he'll likely have an MRI coming in the next day and the Celtics seem like the have no chance to make this a series. If IT is out, Marcus Smart will get some heavy run while Terry Rozier would also have to step up.
May 19 - 11:20 PM

Isaiah Thomas (right hip) will not return to Friday's game against the Cavs.

He was limping at the end of the first half and the team is calling it a right hip strain. The Celtics were dominated 72-31 for the biggest halftime deficit in the history of the NBA playoffs, so there's no reason to bring IT back. He was terrible in this game, scoring just two points in 18 minutes. Marcus Smart started the third quarter for Thomas.
May 19 - 9:55 PM

Isaiah Thomas said the Celtics are not afraid of the Cavs.

"They're not Space Jam," Thomas said. "They just happened to play better than us in Game 1." The Celtics starters were destroyed on Wednesday and played just eight minutes together. Coach Brad Stevens could opt to make a change, but he could also change his plan and look to double LeBron James more.
May 18 - 4:29 PM

Isaiah Thomas struggled in 38 minutes on Wednesday, making 7-of-19 shots with two 3-pointers for 17 points, 10 assists, one rebound, one steal and four turnovers.

Thomas was trapped often by the Cavs' defense, as expected, but he just didn't have it going offensively -- he missed shots he usually makes, committed some costly turnovers, and the Celtics looked lost in the first half. Thomas was a mere 1-of-3 from the FT line tonight, after averaging 10.5 made free throws vs. Cleveland during the regular season. He should fare better in Game 2 on Friday.
May 17 - 11:53 PM

Isaiah Thomas led the Celtics with 29 points on 9-of-21 shooting in Monday's Game 7 win over the Wizards.

Playing in his first ever Game 7, Thomas said before the game that he doesn't "believe in pressure" and he backed those comments up with a monster performance. He dished out 12 assists in 40 minutes, hitting 8-of-9 free throws with two rebounds, one steal and three 3-pointers. It's not a bad day to be a Boston fan, as the Celtics will move on to face the Cavaliers in the Eastern Conference Finals and have a 25.0 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick during the draft lottery on Tuesday night.
May 15 - 11:07 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored 27 points during a Game 6 92-91 loss in Washington on Friday, adding three rebounds, seven assists, five turnovers and five 3-pointers in 39 minutes.

It looked like it was Isaiah Time in the fourth with a couple clutch IT jumpers with two minutes left, but he had a bad turnover late that led to a Brad Beal three, and John Wall blocked IT on the next possession. If not for that sequence, the Celtics are probably getting ready for the Cavs. Plus, coach Brad Stevens pulled out a lot of nice after-timeout plays and you could say he out-coached Scott Brooks today. The Celtics were living on fast-break points with 17 in this game while they had a lot of perimeter points outside of that with only 26 points in the paint. TD Garden should be fired up for Game 7 on Monday.
May 12 - 11:05 PM

Isaiah Thomas has been fined $25,000 for directing inappropriate language at a fan in Washington.

This fine was likely to happen after Thomas used some profanity to a face yelling at him near the sidelines. More importantly, Thomas will have to figure out how to deal with how the Wizards bother him, sending double teams at him throughout the game.
