What Isaiah Thomas' upcoming return will mean for Cleveland Cavaliers
Author: Chris Fedor
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- After months of frustration and countless hours of rehab on his injured hip, Isaiah Thomas is getting closer to his Cleveland Cavaliers debut.
The next step for Thomas, who has slowly added to his rehab program, is to go through five-on-five practices. With the Cavs' limited practice schedule, Thomas may have to get that work with the Canton Charge, the team's G League affiliate, according to an ESPN report.
LeBron James has expressed his excitement, even pointing to some time he's spent playing NBA 2K18, using Thomas in different lineups to figure out where he fits best. Kevin Love, who is not an avid gamer, has started envisioning the possibilities as well. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
