Celtics president Danny Ainge said he thinks Isaiah Thomas is better-suited to coming off the bench.
While this might sound like an indictment of Thomas, Ainge said it's more about conserving the diminutive guard. "I think Isaiah is more suited for a bench role. Isaiah expends a ton of energy to score," the Celtics president said. Ainge also lauded Thomas' ability to score in the fourth quarter and left no doubt over the importance of Thomas to the Celtics' future. Apr 30 - 12:52 PM

Isaiah Thomas shot just 4-of-17 from the field during Sunday's Game 4 loss to the Cavs, scoring 21 points with nine assists, five rebounds, one 3-pointer, on steal and four turnovers through 37 minutes of action.

Thomas struggled from the field, but he still got his points by going a perfect 12-of-12 from the charity stripe. Thomas' numbers made a major jump when he was traded to Boston, averaging 19.0 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.3 three-pointers per game through 21 games with the Celtics. He was a major reason why Boston was able to make the playoffs this season, and he figures to be a mid-round asset next year as Boston's sixth man.

Isaiah Thomas played just 21 minutes against the Cavs on Thursday during a Game 3 loss, making 2-of-9 from the field for five points with one rebound, two assists and one turnover.

After two 22-point games to open this series, Thomas just couldn't penetrate and disrupt the defense like he's been doing since he joined the Celtics. He didn't play down the stretch in this game which may have been due to the poor offensive showing. The Pizza Guy will likely get another chance to be the top scoring option in Game 4.

Isaiah Thomas was terrific during Game 2 on Tuesday with a team-high 22 points, seven assists and one steal in a tough 91-99 road loss.

The Celtics' bench outscored the Cavaliers' bench 51-7, which isn't shocking given their regular-season disparity -- Boston ranked first in bench scoring at 41.6 points per game, while Cleveland ranked 30th at 24.3 points. It's an advantage the Celts must continue to exploit if they hope to climb back from an 0-2 hole.
Apr 21 - 10:01 PM

Isaiah Thomas finished Sunday's Game 1 loss to the Cavaliers with a team-high 22 points, two 3-pointers, five rebounds, 10 assists and one steal in 32 minutes off the bench.

It was Thomas' first double-double with the Celtics, but more impressively he joined Oscar Robertson and LeBron James as the only players to get at least 20 points, 10 assists and five rebounds in their NBA playoffs debut. His acquisition was a catalyst for the Celtics' playoff push after the All-Star break, and Boston got a bargain with three years remaining on his contract at a total of $19.7 million.
Apr 19 - 7:21 PM

Isaiah Thomas will rest vs. the Bucks on Wednesday.

The Celtics are already without Avery Bradley (quad) and coach Brad Stevens said that he'll spread minutes evenly across his roster. That could lead to substantial minutes for seldom-used backups like Phil Pressey and James Young, though neither guy is a compelling fantasy play.
Apr 15 - 6:40 PM

Isaiah Thomas led Boston's reserves on Tuesday with 11 points on 4-of-13 shooting, three 3-pointers, one rebound and six assists in 27 minutes.

Thomas was averaging 23.2 points on 51.4 percent in his previous five games, so tonight's inaccuracy can be easily forgiven. He'll be even busier if Avery Bradley's bruised quad keeps him out on Wednesday, though coach Brad Stevens suggested after Tuesday's game that he'll spread minutes thinly across his active lineup.
Apr 14 - 10:27 PM

Isaiah Thomas looked fantastic during Sunday's blowout win over the Cavs, as he scored 17 points on 5-of-10 shooting (5-of-6 from the stripe), with six assists, two steals, two rebounds, two 3-pointers and one turnover through 22 minutes of action.

Thomas had a few highlight reel plays, including a Rajon Rondo-esque dish to Jonas Jerebko on a drive to the hoop that had fans at the TD Garden shouting "better than Rondo!" He's been fantastic through the month of April with averages of 21.4 points, 5.4 assists, and 2.4 three-pointers per game, and he's certainly established himself as a strong Sixth Man of the Year candidate.

Isaiah Thomas torched the Pistons during a 113-103 win on Wednesday, scoring a season-high 34 points with three rebounds, six assists and four 3-pointers in just 30 minutes.

He put the team on his back, making 10-of-17 from the field and 10-of-11 from the line to give him a usage rate of 37.7 -- he had a 50.5 usage rate in the second half. He scored 23 points in the second half and is as hot as ever over his last three, averaging 27.3 points, 5.3 assists, 3.0 treys and 3.7 turnovers on 56.3 percent from the field and 90.5 percent from the line. What's more, he's made an unfathomable 15-of-20 at the rim in his last three. The Pizza Guy is listed at 5'9.
Apr 8 - 11:35 PM

Isaiah Thomas kept his foot on the gas pedal against the Raptors on Saturday during a 117-116 win, scoring 25 points with two rebounds, four assists and three 3-pointers.

He had a 36.1 usage rate tonight and was right back to being the focal point of the offense. Thomas really struggled in his first four games following a back injury, but he's averaged 24.0 points per game in his last two. The Pizza Guy is a must-start player again.
Apr 5 - 12:33 AM

Isaiah Thomas made 7-of-12 from the field for 23 points with one rebound, six assists, two 3-pointers and five turnovers in 27 minutes during a 110-101 loss to the Bucks.

This loss is going to sting and the Celtics are now 0.5 games behind Miami for the eighth seed. As for Thomas, he was really struggling before tonight, making just 29.4 percent from the field in his previous five. Thomas was able to turn it around tonight and should keep it going on Saturday against the Raptors. You'll want to start him for that one.
Apr 4 - 12:12 AM

Isaiah Thomas played 22 minutes against the Hornets on Monday during a 116-104 win with 10 points, seven assists and two 3-pointers on 3-of-9 from the field.

He hasn't been the same player since returning from injury, making just 31.7 percent from the field. Thomas also hasn't played more than 26 minutes in a game since the injury. Thomas was posting some early-round value in his first two weeks with Boston, so his fantasy owners have to cut him slack. Start him against the Pacers on Wednesday.
Mar 31 - 12:08 AM

Isaiah Thomas came off Boston's bench for a team-high 19 points in 26 minutes during Sunday's loss in Boston, adding two 3-pointers, seven assists and two steals without any turnovers.

He played 20 minutes and 24 minutes in his first two games back from a hip/back injury, so the increased playing time is encouraging. He did most of his damage at the free throw line tonight, where he shot 9-of-10, and it helps that he was facing the Clippers' suspect second-unit defense for most of the night. Owners can still expect him to carve up the Hornets on Monday.
Mar 29 - 9:16 PM

Isaiah Thomas scored 18 points against the Knicks on Friday with one rebound, six assists and two 3-pointers on 4-of-13 from the field.

He has struggled since returning from a back injury, but getting 24 minutes tonight is an encouraging sign. Thomas was playing around 30 minutes per game before his injury and posting an elite usage rate, so he should be set for a bigger chance against the Clippers on Sunday.
Mar 28 - 12:43 AM

Isaiah Thomas (back) called his return to the court on Wednesday, "one of the worst games I've ever played."

Thomas may want to go easy on himself since this was his first game since March 11, but he did struggle with just four points on 2-of-7 shooting in 20 minutes on Wednesday. "There's no excuses, I have to play better," said Thomas. "I'm my biggest critic, I have to come out and play better, offensively and defensively." Thomas will have three more weeks to shake the rust off and should be held in standard fantasy leagues while he's healthy.
