Isaiah Thomas’ Hip Injury Worse Than Original Diagnosis

NESN by Sam Galanis on Fri, Sep 8, 2017 at 3:04PM

It turns out the Cleveland Cavaliers might have been on to something with regards to Isaiah Thomas’ hip. The trade that sent Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets’ 2018 first-round draft pick to Cleveland in exchange for Kyrie Irving was put on hold until the Boston Celtics threw in a second-rounder in 2020 because of something the Cavs saw in Thomas’ hip.

It was a well-known fact that Thomas had been nursing the injury for a while and still was in the rehab process leading up to the trade, so plenty of people were baffled as to why it became an issue only after the 28-year-old was dealt to Cleveland.

Well, according to The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd, it’s because Thomas’ injury could be worse than a labrum tear, which was the original diagnosis. Here’s what Lloyd wrote Thursday: “One source with direct knowledge of Thomas’ hip condition told The Athletic last week that he is dealing with more than just a tear. Some of those secondary issues in the hip he has played with for years now, such as a loss of cartilage and some arthritis, are complicating his healing process.

“‘No one has any idea how quickly this will heal or if it even will heal at all,’ the source said. ‘It’s hard to predict.'” Lloyd wrote that it’s “unsettling” that Thomas has been limited for four months to treatment and weight room activities without any update from the Cavs. All we know so far is that the point guard won’t need surgery, but even that seems like it could change at any minute.

Either way, it’s safe to say the Celtics are happy they have Irving at point guard now, as he’ll be ready to go on Opening Night, barring any sort of freak incident. Thumbnail photo via Ken Blaze/USA TODAY Sports Images

Poor IT, you really have to feel for him. You have to wonder if he has been living in denial all this time and that surgery way back when would have helped in his recovery?

IT is the only loser in this trade with the Cavs.

I still cannot believe that IT's support squad (advisors, doctors, etc) allowed him to avoid the hip surgery that he needed in early May. With an operation in May, he would now be four plus months into his recovery and could have been possibly been playing by Thanksgiving.
