‘Upset’ Isaiah Thomas begins to show commitment to Cavs
Finally a member of their team after an eight-day trade struggle with the Celtics, the Cavs are beginning to map out plans for the injured but â€˜fully committedâ€™ Isaiah Thomas.
According to Cleveland.com, the 28-year-old Thomas will begin his training program with the Cavaliers on Tuesday. Per the story, Thomasâ€™ work back to the court will be overseen by Dr. James Rosneck, a renowned hip specialist at the Cleveland Clinic who works with the Cavs, along with Dr. Richard Parker, the teamâ€™s lead doctor and an orthopedic surgeon at the Clinic. The team also wants to see how Thomas responds after a week of this training, and then through the month of September leading into training camp before they determine a timetable. The story also noted that all indications point to Thomas missing at least a portion of the season.
Multiple sources told Cleveland.com the teamâ€™s â€œnot going to rush itâ€� with Thomas, but remain optimistic heâ€™ll return to the court this season and play at his usually high level, while sources also told the website that Thomas was â€˜upsetâ€™ that he was traded.
But his frustrations with being traded have seemingly cooled down of late and turned into that Isaiah-like determination, as the 5-foot-9 Thomas was recently photographed in his new Cavs gear by a fan, was pictured at his new locker all smiles, and has even commented on one of the most recent LeBron posts on Instagram.
