Danny Ainge wants to see Isaiah Thomas improve his efficiency this season.
Thomas shot 42.8 percent from the field while attempting a whopping 16.9 shots per game, and now that he's got a more talented roster around him, Ainge wants to see his point guard pick better spots rather than force it on the offensive end. The arrival of Al Horford should take some pressure off of Thomas and potentially open up a few things for him on the floor, but he'll be a high usage player regardless. Draft him accordingly.

Isaiah Thomas said he's worked on his off-the-dribble 3-pointers this summer.

On his pull-up treys last year, Thomas made a somewhat respectable 33.5 percent. On catch and shoot, he knocked down 38.7 percent, so there's a decent gap there. On top of his jumpers, Thomas ranked second among guards for shots at the rim last regular season (Russell Westbrook). If the Pizza Guy can put it all together, he could top his 22.2 points per game and improve on his solid 56.2 true shooting percentage. He's a fine third-round pick in standard leagues.

Isaiah Thomas is embracing Al Horford's arrival in Boston.

"It’s only going to help. That’s what we need, other guys that can put the ball in the basket, other guys that can do a variety of different things and he’s one of those guys," Thomas said. "The attention will go off me a little bit with having Al Horford on our team." IT added that he knows the transition will be a "process and it's going to take a little bit [of time]," but the point guard is confident the duo will figure it out. While Thomas should still return comparable fantasy value to last season, he is unlikely to have exactly the same kind of freedom and offensive role with Horford now on the squad.

Isaiah Thomas expects teams to "bring out the Brinks truck" when he hits free agency.

Thomas, scheduled to hit the market after the 2017-18 season, picked an interesting time for his comments. "They’re paying everybody else, I’ve got to get something," the point guard said. "But I’m trying not to worry about it, but it’s out there. And I’m going to just continue to be myself and play. And hopefully that takes care of everything else." Derrick Rose got slammed for making similar comments before the 2015-16 campaign began, but Thomas is unlikely to face the same scrutiny.

Isaiah Thomas said he thinks the Celtics have a shot at landing Kevin Durant in free agency.

While the Celtics are a long shot to sign the unrestricted free agent, Thomas still thinks the Celts have a shot at landing KD. "We definitely have a shot," Thomas said. " I know that for sure. I'm just trying to reach out when I can and stay in his ear a little bit here and there. I know it's a tough time for him because everybody's probably trying to reach out and get him to go where they want him to go. But my relationship with him is real genuine and hopefully I can get him to come to Boston, and we can bring Banner 18 [to the Celtics]." Thomas might be setting himself up for disappointment here, but we'll know more as free agency approaches on July 1.

Isaiah Thomas would like a chance to play for Team USA.

"I wish I could get a chance to play on the USA team," Thomas tweeted. "Looking at the history of it I've never seen a small guard get selected [to] even try out." Thomas may get a look in the future, but the point guard position is always among the hardest to crack on the Olympic roster.

Isaiah Thomas said he will do everything in his power to try and lure Kevin Durant to Boston as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

The Celtics have eight draft picks in the 2016 NBA draft (including the No. 3 overall selection), an elite coach and front office staff, and enough money to give out two max contracts this offseason. Danny Ainge could use the draft picks as a bargaining chip in a sign-and-trade proposal, while IT4 will likely be trying to sell KD on their up-and-coming roster in addition to lure of joining a historic franchise. However, after a deep playoff run with OKC, KD may end up just staying put.
Jun 5 - 2:47 PM

Isaiah Thomas vowed to be better next season.

"I'm going to do whatever it takes to not have this feeling again because it really hurt me," Thomas said. "I'm going to use that as motivation to continue to get better and work on my flaws and make those into my strengths. I promise you I'll be back better." Thomas was a top-40 player in standard 9-cat leagues this season with averages of 22.2 points, 6.2 assists, 3.0 boards, 1.1 steals and 2.0 3-pointers, so he won't be cheap in fantasy drafts next season.

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.

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.
Apr 28 - 5:15 PM

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.
Apr 27 - 4:16 PM

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.
Apr 27 - 10:04 AM

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.
Apr 26 - 11:36 PM

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.
