The Cleveland Cavaliers have a couple new players in town and they’re getting ready for the 2017-2018 season. One person who will not be ready: Isaiah Thomas.
The Cavs introduced him, Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic at a press conference in the city and the all eyes were on Thomas. The media bombarded him with questions throughout his time on the podium. While GM Koby Altman dodged as many questions about his hip as he could, he did confirm that IT will not be having surgery and the team will approach the injury as a ‘non-surgical plan.’ Coach Tyronn Lue also confirmed he will not be ready for the season opener, which happens to be October 17 against the Boston Celtics.
We’ll wait for more news about Isaiah’s hip to surface as we get closer to the season, as well as how long he’s going to be out and a definitive return date.
