Isaiah Thomas's return to the court is fast approaching, and will likely be preceeded by practice with the Cavaliers' G League team, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

Thomas has been out since May and is yet to take part in a full practice session with the team, mainly due to the fact that they very rarely practice.

The Cavaliers will have some extra practice time in between Thursday's game and Monday's Christmas Day showdown against the Golden State Warriors. Thomas is then expected to play a scrimmage with the Charge, either in Cleveland or in Canton, at some point this week. This report indicates that a late-December return is on the table, while Shams Charania of The Vertical reported on Sunday that Thomas would be back for the first week of the January.

Thomas has been out all season as he recovers from a hip injury.


If all goes well, there's a likelihood, slim or not, that Isaiah Thomas will finally be able to make his Cavs debut in any of Cleveland's last three games of the year.

"I don't know where that came from, but I hope so", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said Sunday night of the report, per ESPN. McMenamin noted that a source said that Thomas won't play at all in any games before Christmas.

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. 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.
