Coach Brad Stevens said Isaiah Thomas' (groin) injury can usually be a 10-14 day thing.
In his press conference, Stevens made it clear the Celtics do not want to bring Thomas back too soon and have him aggravate it. He added it's certainly possible for Thomas to be back before the 10 days and said it's "not going to be a long-term thing." Stevens said IT being out will expedite the learning curves of Jaylen Brown and Terry Rozier as well. Of course, Marcus Smart benefits the most here. Dec 9 - 5:58 PM

Isaiah Thomas (groin) has been ruled out for Friday's game against the Raptors.

Coach Brad Stevens called Thomas' groin strain "unpredictable" on Wednesday and Thomas even had a PRP injection, so seeing Thomas ruled out a day ahead of Friday's game makes sense. Marcus Smart was terrific in his start on Wednesday with 13 points while Terry Rozier turned in arguably his best game with 16 points. Jaylen Brown also saw an uptick in playing time sans Thomas.

Isaiah Thomas (groin) is doubtful for Friday's game vs. the Raptors.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge revealed that Thomas got a PRP injection for his groin injury on Wednesday and said he "probably" wouldn't play vs. Toronto. With Thomas on the shelf on Wednesday, Marcus Smart drew the start and scored 13 points with three assists, three rebounds, two steals and one trey in 23 minutes (foul trouble), while Terry Rozier produced 16 points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one triple in 26 minutes off the bench. Smart should already be owned in standard leagues, but Rozier could have some short-term value.

Isaiah Thomas (groin) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

Thomas flew back to Boston to receive treatment on his groin injury, and Marcus Smart was spotted sporting a starter jersey during shootaround, so it looks like Smart will be drawing the start tonight making him a reasonable low-budget DFS option. Avery Bradley and Al Horford will do the heavy lifting on offense tonight sans Thomas, and Terry Rozier will see an uptick in minutes. Groin injuries can linger, so Boston may want to take a cautious approach in bringing back Thomas. For now, we'll consider him doubtful for Friday's game against the Raptors.

Isaiah Thomas (groin) did not participate during Tuesday's practice.

Thomas tweaked his groin during Monday's loss to the Rockets, so for now, we're going to consider him questionable for Wednesday's game in Orlando. If he's out, Marcus Smart or Terry Rozier could move into the starting lineup, with Avery Bradley and Al Horford being asked to step it up on the offensive end. Owners can expect to get another update on Thomas' status following Wednesday morning's shootaround, but it's worth noting that he was able to get some shots up after practice.

Isaiah Thomas exploded down the stretch during a 107-106 win over the 76ers on Saturday, scoring a season-high 37 points with four rebounds, seven assists, one steal and two 3-pointers.

He scored 12 consecutive Celtics points down the stretch to lead his team to the win. He also went to the line a season-high 15 times tonight and made 11-of-19 from the field. Thomas is shooting the ball 0.1 percent worse from the field compared to last year, but his efficiency is up thanks to more treys and going to the line 2.5 more times per game. The free throws have made him a top-three option for the free throw percentage category. Thomas has third-round value on the season and is now a top-10 scorer in the NBA. The Pizza Guy is cookin'.
Dec 3 - 11:48 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored a team-high 27 points in a losing effort on Wednesday, going 10-of-20 from the field and 4-of-4 from the free throw line.

Thomas made three 3-pointers with four assists and just two turnovers, but he didn't have any rebounds, steals or blocks. He's been a steady third-round fantasy value this year, proving impervious to the addition of Al Horford and the improved play of guys like Avery Bradley and Jae Crowder.
Nov 30 - 10:39 PM

Isaiah Thomas hit just 7-of-23 shots and 2-of-10 3-pointers, but also made all nine of his free throws en route to 25 points, four rebounds, eight assists, a steal and just one turnover in 35 minutes of Monday's win over the Heat.

Not the most efficient night for IT2, but the free throws and lack of TOs were nice. He's having a big season, but his 37 percent shooting from the floor over his last five games is a bit of a buzzkill. Hopefully his shots start falling again sooner than later.
Nov 28 - 10:25 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored 24 points with one rebound, eight assists and three 3-pointers in 36 minutes against the Spurs on Friday.

While Thomas has only made 38.5 percent from the field in his last five, his finger aggravation hasn't affected how he plays too much with similar shot distribution. The Spurs were also very physical with Thomas during this game, but he only made it to the line four times -- the Spurs went to the line 25 times compared to the Celtics going just nine times. Thomas should be an early-round player this year.
Nov 25 - 3:41 PM

Isaiah Thomas aggravated his sprained left middle finger injury on Wednesday and stayed in the game, finishing with 23 points, one rebound, five assists, one block and five 3-pointers in 32 minutes.

He didn't seem to be too affected by the injury tonight. Thomas hit a back-breaking 3-pointer in the fourth and left his hand up after the release for a couple seconds. The finger sprain is minor, so he's fully expected to play on Friday.
Nov 24 - 12:33 AM

Isaiah Thomas scored 24 points on 7-of-22 shooting Saturday, to go with four boards, eight assists, two 3-pointers, one block and zero turnovers through 36 minutes of action.

Thomas is having himself another top-30 season, hitting career-highs in points (26.2), assists (6.5), and usage rate (32.6) and there’s no reason to believe he can't keep this up. Yes, he has been struggling a bit with his shot lately, which probably has something to do with the sprained middle finger on his shooting hand, but that's not going to be a long-term problem.
Nov 19 - 9:40 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored 18 points during a 104-88 blowout home loss to the Warriors on Friday, adding two rebounds, four assists and one 3-pointer in 28 minutes.

He's struggled a bit on his jumpers since he sprained his finger back on Nov. 11. He's only made 33.3 percent of his jumpers since then, which dropped him to 40.7 percent from the field in that span. He'll be fine as an early-round asset and should light up Ish Smith on Saturday.
Nov 18 - 11:33 PM

Isaiah Thomas said that his sprained left middle finger is feeling "no better, but no worse."

Thomas is just trying to get the swelling down through ice and massage, but there's no reason to believe this injury will force him to spend any time on the sidelines. He fought through the pain on Monday night, scoring 37 points over 36 minutes, and he'll look to keep his momentum going on Wednesday with a favorable matchup against the Mavericks.
Nov 15 - 3:52 PM

Isaiah Thomas (finger) scored 37 points in Monday's 105-104 loss to the Pelicans, adding seven assists, three rebounds, one steal and three triples in 36 minutes.

He played through a sprained left middle finger and it was surprising to see him perform this well because it was on his shooting hand and he could barely bend his finger on Friday. He shot 13-of-29 from the field and 8-of-10 from the line, and now gets to look forward to a dream matchup vs. the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Nov 14 - 11:08 PM

Isaiah Thomas (sprained left middle finger) said he will play on Monday vs. the Pelicans.

His finger is heavily wrapped and it is his shooting hand, so it will be interesting to see how he looks. As hot as Thomas has been this season, he's shaping up as a risky play in DFS. He could also lose touches if Al Horford (concussion) is able to give it a go.
