Isaiah Thomas Nearly Ready To Begin 5-On-5 Practice

On Tuesday, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reported Thomas is likely to lace it up for five-on-five practices in the "immediate future".

Those two days are expected to afford Thomas his first chance to get in his first full court 5-on-5 practice since joining the team following a trade with the Boston Celtics in August. According to McMenamin, the Cavaliers do have a practice session schedule on Christmas Eve, but they are unlikely to play him in the game against the defending champions.

The Cleveland Cavaliers' G League affiliate will reportedly be involved in Isaiah Thomas' recovery from his hip injury. Giving Thomas a practice run with the Charge should also brighten the prospects of the Cavs giving a definite date for his return.

"Following the Warriors game, the Cavs play the Sacramento Kings on December 27, and then they have a one-day retreat planned in Napa, California, after that contest, which one source close to Thomas described as a "nice environment" for the two-time All-Star to "get ready" to play his first game".

Yahoo Sports reported Sunday that Thomas was targeting the first week of January for a return.

Thomas has yet to play in a game for the Cavaliers after the blockbuster trade that sent him to Cleveland and Kyrie Irving to the Celtics. "I hope it's accurate".

The Cavs are hoping to find a way for Thomas to scrimmage with their G-League affiliate, the Canton Charge, multiple team sources told ESPN.

When asked if he was consulted on Thomas' return timeline, Lue said, "That's not my job".
