Coach Brad Stevens said that if Isaiah Thomas decides Saturday that his sister's funeral is too much and that he can't play in Game 1 against the Wizards on Sunday, he's totally fine with that.
Following the win on Friday, Thomas will take a private jet to Seattle with general manager Danny Ainge. Thomas left the locker room early on Friday night and may already be en route. Thomas hasn't quite been right and is playing for his sister the rest of the way, but just about everyone is rooting for him. Expect an update on his status Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Isaiah Thomas scored 12 points with five rebounds, six assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 26 minutes against the Bulls on Friday.

We still haven't seen the MVP-caliber IT in the playoffs, but he still gets a ton of credit to play after a family tragedy. Al Horford talked about how the team wasn't right to start this series while Avery Bradley said it took some time to play the way they've been accustomed to. He'll have his hands full against John Wall for Game 1 in Boston on Sunday.

Isaiah Thomas is expected to travel home to Tacoma, Washington, after Game 6 on Friday night to attend his sister's funeral.

It's unbelievable that Thomas has been able to play as well as he has during this first-round series vs. Chicago considering the incredibly sad situation he and his family is dealing with. If Bulls win on Friday and force a Game 7, it would be played on Sunday at 1 p.m. ET in Boston. Or, if both the Wizards and Celtics win on Friday, then Game 1 of the Boston vs. Washington series would be played on Sunday. Thus, Thomas may have to rush back east on Saturday night.

Isaiah Thomas scored a team-high 33 points during Sunday's Game 4 road victory, going 10-of-21 from the field and 12-of-13 from the FT line.

Thomas made one 3-pointer while chipping in seven assists, four rebounds and one steal, and as usual he was the Celtics' savior offensively. He dominated in the second half, despite battling foul trouble, and he earned a technical foul for accurately shouting "You can't guard me!" at Bulls guard Michael Carter-Williams. He's playing freely, with MVP-like swagger, which is an ominous sight for Bulls fans.

Isaiah Thomas scored 16 points with two rebounds, nine assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes against the Bulls during a Game 3 win on Friday.

The Bulls were able to keep IT in check for the first half with just six points, but Thomas busted out in the third with eight points, four assists, one steal and two 3-pointers in those eight minutes. He rejoined his team on Thursday night after a trip to Washington to be with his family, so he still isn't quite in his routine. Regardless of how he plays, IT gets a ton of credit for playing through such a family tragedy. We may see IT time on Sunday.
