Cavs GM Koby Altman Reveals Team's Plan for Isaiah Thomas' Hip Injury

Cleveland Cavs rumors Cavs may trade 2018 NBA Draft pick

Thomas, the Eastern Conference's top scorer whose hip injury sidelined him for the final three games of the Eastern Conference Finals a year ago, is used to overcoming adversity - going from the 2011 Draft's Mr.

General manager Koby Altman implored reporters to avoid asking questions about Thomas' hip, but they asked anyway. "We're also not going to put a timetable on his return". We're just not going to rush this thing. The Cavs have said they're looking to treat Thomas without surgery, which is the same plan the Celtics had.

The Cleveland Cavaliers introduced Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, and Ante Zizic during a press conference on Thursday.

More than two weeks have passed since the Cavs and Celtics originally agreed to terms, and the news conference was pushed back an additional 90 minutes because of a travel issue for Crowder.

Some renowned personalities and some commoners as well have expressed suspicion that Gauri's death was anticipated by many. She ran the weekly "Gauri Lankest Patrike", a tabloid and faced opposition and criticism of her journalism.

Truth is, Thomas' hip has been a major talking point around the league for months, starting the moment the 5-foot-8 guard was forced to bow out of the Eastern Conference finals against Cleveland when the pain became intolerable and he could no longer perform at his elite level. "It made me realize that this is a business and anybody other than probably LeBron James or Kevin Durant or those type of guys can be traded".

Thomas published an emotional essay Wednesday on The Player's Tribune by saying how he had just finishing celebrating his one-year wedding anniversary with his wife when he got a call from Danny Ainge, the Celtics' president of basketball operations.

The 28-year old Thomas made his first ever All-NBA second team while scoring 28.9 points per contest in 76 games last season. Thomas is a play maker and I have a nice feeling that his assist numbers will rise this upcoming season.

"It's not about social media or anything like that connecting with (fans), it's all about showing what you bring to the team and showing how much you respect the game of basketball", said Crowder.

The 1,500 soldiers will join the 15 members for the Arkansas National Guard's 61st Civil Support Team that left on Monday. Hutchinson's office says the guardsmen will leave on Saturday and the deployment could be up to 30 days.

"It was surprising, definitely caught time off guard", Thomas said when asked about his initial thoughts on the trade.

Thomas said both he and Crowder have already been in touch with Cavs star LeBron James since the deal.

"We know once we hit the playoffs, if we're healthy, we're going to be a tough team to beat", Lue said.
