The Cleveland Cavaliers have been waiting for Isaiah Thomas to hit the floor for the team since they traded for him and said goodbye to Kyrie Irving. After months of waiting for him to recover from injury, it looks like he might be hitting the floor sooner than expected.
According to Brian Windhorst, he’s already participating in 3-on-3 drills and getting prepared to hit the floor in about mid-December. In just a few weeks.
Windhorst: Internally, the #Cavs are shooting for mid-December for a return of Isaiah Thomas. He is ramping up to 3-on-3 work.

It’ll still take a few weeks after he comes back to get back into game shape and the IT4 we’re used to seeing on the court, but it’s good to know he’s almost back on the court. The Cavs have been managing without him, though he will be a great addition to add to the squad once he gets back in top form.
It’ll be just in time for the second half of the season, too, where they can finish working out all the kinks and get ready for the playoffs.
You know Thomas is ready to make a championship run and defeat the Boston Celtics in the Eastern Conference Finals. Then take on the Golden State Warriors.
We’ll keep you updated if more information about his return surfaces.
