Celtics coach Brad Stevens praised Isaiah Thomas' ability to penetrate into the lane as a key that makes him successful.
"We started the season playing very skilled at the 4 and the 5, but I think the ability to get in the paint, again, off of his (Thomas’) creation — but then the next guy getting into the paint because of it — is probably the key," Stevens said. It's not just Thomas creating opportunities for himself, but also his teammates that have him faring so well in Boston. He's a must-own, must-start player. Mar 2 - 11:05 AM

Isaiah Thomas scored 28 points on 9-of-22 shooting (2-of-8 3PTs, 8-of-10 FTs) with one rebound, seven assists and one steal in the Celtics' 106-98 win over the Hornets on Friday.

Thomas has been a top-25 player in four games for the Celtics (top-60 in 9-cat), averaging 22.3 points in 27.7 mpg with 2.5 treys, 3.3 boards, 6.0 assists, 1.0 steals and a devastating 88.6 percent from the line on 8.8 attempts per game. He's hitting just 39.3 percent of his shots during that small sample and his playing time should continue to rise. Meanwhile the Celtics look like a transformed team and a fun potential No. 8 seed if they can keep it up.

Celtics coach Brad Stevens said that he isn't considering Isaiah Thomas as a starter, and he's happy with the backcourt combination of Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley.

Thomas has averaged 21.0 points, 3.0 triples, 3.0 rebounds, 5.0 assists and 1.5 steals in two games with Boston, despite playing only 26 minutes off the bench. He's a must-start fantasy player whether he's starting or leading the second unit, and his presence is a drag on Smart's fantasy outlook.

Isaiah Thomas said it felt good to beat his former team on Monday night as the Celtics beat the Suns in Phoenix.

Thomas led the Celtics to victory with 21 points and relished beating the team that traded him last week. "It felt good to beat the team that traded you away," Thomas said. "I just love the big moment. I want to be the hero. IT2 will see plenty of run with the C's and has top-25 fantasy upside the rest of the way.

New Celtics PG Isaiah Thomas returned to Phoenix just a week after he was traded away, carving up the Suns for 21 points, seven assists, three treys and one steal in 27 minutes.

It's clear the Celtics are going to rely on Thomas to generate much of their offense and though they could decide to hold his minutes in the 27-30 range, it wouldn't be surprising if he's running starter's minutes sometime soon. He has top-25 upside and he's probably looking at early round returns no matter what, as now the Suns join the Kings in looking silly for letting the Pizza Guy go.

Isaiah Thomas looked good in green during his Celtics debut on Sunday, posting 21 points, three 3-pointers, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in just 25 minutes before being ejected in the fourth quarter.

He was dealing with a minor illness, according to coach Brad Stevens, and should see his role increase steadily as he adjusts to his new team in Boston. A starting job is almost inevitable, though Thomas should see an uptick in playing time and usage rate no matter where he begins the game. Boston has him under contract for a reasonable $19.3 million over the next three seasons (through 2017-18), so they have plenty of incentive to feed him minutes over the final two months of the season.

Isaiah Thomas is feeling under the weather, but he is going to play against the Lakers on Sunday.

Thomas is set to come off the bench in his Boston debut behind Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, but it's going to be interesting to see what coach Brad Stevens does with his rotations. Thomas should still see plenty of run in a bench role, so he's still worth holding onto in all leagues.
Feb 22 - 8:11 PM

Isaiah Thomas will come off the bench for Sunday's game against the Lakers.

It looks like Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley's job is safe for now, and it will be interesting to see what head coach Brad Stevens does with his rotations in the coming weeks. Thomas should still see plenty of run even in a bench role, so he's still worth owning in all leagues. Check back after the game to see how he fares.
Feb 22 - 2:10 PM

Newcomers Isaiah Thomas, Jonas Jerebko and Luigi Datome are all going through shootaround and look set to play against the Lakers on Sunday night.

They weren't able to meet up with the team in time to play on Friday, but all signs point to them being activated tonight. It's going to be interesting to see how Thomas fits into the rotation along with Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley, so owners will want to keep a close eye on this in the coming days. Jerebko may see a few minutes with Jared Sullinger (foot) out for the season, but Datome will probably be buried on the bench.

Isaiah Thomas is flying to Boston on Friday and isn't expected to have a physical until Saturday, leaving him unlikely to play on Friday night.

That should mean plenty of run for Evan Turner, Marcus Smart and Avery Bradley tonight against the Kings.
Feb 20 - 5:49 PM

Isaiah Thomas has been sent to the Boston Celtics as part of a four-team deal.

Thomas could be looking at the starting point guard spot in Boston, and he's likely going to hurt the value of Marcus Smart. He'll be entering a crowded backcourt rotation, with Evan Turner and Smart vying for minutes, but he should easily sustain value in standard leagues as a member of the Celtics.
Feb 19 - 3:22 PM

Isaiah Thomas is either being sent to the Celtics or the 76ers, as there have been two contradictory reports from Marc Stein of ESPN and Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.

Isaiah Thomas would be better suited in the up-tempo system of Philadelphia, but he should also be able to sustain value in standard leagues in Boston. We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but either way, it appears Thomas will no longer be donning a Phoenix jersey.
Feb 19 - 3:02 PM

The Phoenix Suns would rather deal Isaiah Thomas before the trade deadline as opposed to Goran Dragic according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

It's worth noting that ESPN turned up the heat earlier in the day by reporting how available and wanted Dragic was only to turn around say he's so valuable that the Suns don't want to get rid of him. So yes, this smells a bit funny. Dragic is fully expected to opt out of his contract this summer to explore free agency, and Rotoworld sources haven't heard much about an Isaiah Thomas trade, so we're guessing Dragic is still the guy dangling on the trade market.
Feb 14 - 9:08 AM

Isaiah Thomas took advantage of a fill-in start for Eric Bledsoe (personal) on Sunday, scoring 26 points with three 3-pointers, three boards, five assists, one steal and zero turnovers in 39 minutes.

Bledsoe left the team due to the birth of his child, leaving him questionable for Tuesday's home game vs. the Rockets. IT3's upside as a starter is well known, as he averaged 21.2 points, 1.9 triples, 3.1 boards, 6.8 assists and 1.2 steals in 54 starts for the Kings last season. Phoenix doesn't seem eager to make a trade before the Feb. 19 deadline, however, so owners may have to settle for the mid-round production he's provided with the Suns' second unit.
Feb 9 - 12:01 AM

Isaiah Thomas will start on Sunday against the Kings in place of Eric Bledsoe (personal).

Thomas has to be pumped right now, as he has an awesome chance to show the Kings what they are missing after they let him walk last season. Bledsoe will likely be back on Tuesday against the Rockets, but Thomas is worth a long look in daily leagues tonight, especially with Darren Collison (hip) sidelined.
