Cavaliers provide few answers on Thomas' injured hip
Sep 08, 2017, 00:42
Danny Ainge has made no secret about how hard it was for him to tell Isaiah Thomas that he had been traded to Cleveland in a deal that centered around Boston acquiring four-time all-star Kyrie Irving.
Thomas unveiled his feelings about the trade the previous day in the Player's Tribune, so the presser's focus turned quickly to the hip injury that will sideline the two-time All-Star for the start of the season.
Thomas went on to share his sadness for leaving Boston but also his excitement of joining the Cavaliers.
The state of Thomas' hip during a physical was a holdup in completing the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Celtics.
Koby Altman confirmed that the treatment plan of Thomas does not include surgery.
The only glimpse about Thomas' timetable came when Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said, "Isaiah's not going to be starting the season".
Meanwhile, Jae Crowder is the type of role player the Cavaliers need - someone who can guard the opposing team's best perimeter players, and Ante Žižić should be a serviceable big man in the pros.
Dressed smartly in a wine-colored sport coat for his introductory news conference, Thomas said the Celtics' decision to trade him was initially painful.

The 34-year old would not address whether or not he and his staff had a planned return date for Thomas, veiling the information or lack thereof under the idea of placing undue pressure on the point guard.
In fact, the players that now constitute Boston's Big Three - Irving, Al Horford and Gordon Hayward - are all here in part because of Thomas' play (Irving) and ability to convince them (Horford and Hayward) to come to Boston and be part of something special. Last season he led the league in drives per game. But Rose has averaged just 48 games played per season since missing the 2012-13 campaign, and Calderon averaged 13.1 minutes per game in his age-35 season.

"I'm excited to play with the best player in the world", Thomas said.

The news conference was a decided change of pace in an offseason during which the Cavs parted ways with general manager David Griffin, struck out on a trade for Paul George in the 11th hour, failed to hire Chauncey Billups to the front office after a protracted courtship and shipped out Irving, who hit one of the biggest shots in league history to cement the 2016 National Basketball Association championship.
