  • Isaiah Thomas injury update Cavs target early January return report says

Apparently, Thomas still hasn't practiced with the team in a full-court setting since they rarely hold practices.

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas is looking at getting a five-on-five scrimmage with the Cavs' G-League affiliate, the Canton Charge, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

The Cavs, winners of 18 of their last 20 games, have ultra-rare back-to-back practices scheduled for Saturday in Cleveland and Sunday in San Francisco ahead of their NBA Finals rematch with the Golden State Warriors. Giving Thomas a practice run with the Charge should also brighten the prospects of the Cavs giving a definite date for his return. The Cavs first game of 2018 comes on January 2, and it seems Thomas is targeting that game for his season debut.

Thomas has missed the entire season so far as he continues to recover from an injury to his right hip.

Fans will not see Thomas play against the Warriors, but interestingly, the Cavaliers are scheduled to take on the Boston Celtics on January 3.

A team source told ESPN that the final determination for when Thomas would play would be a joint decision agreed upon by Thomas, the Cavs' front office, and the Cavs' medical staff. McMenamin noted that a source said that Thomas won't play at all in any games before Christmas.

"I don't know where that came from, but I hope so", Lue said following the Cavs' 106-99 win over the on Sunday. With a seemingly unheard of two straight days of practice at home this weekend, they are taking advantage to try to boost Thomas' return timeline.
