For the first time since he was traded by the Boston Celtics, Isaiah Thomas addressed the concerns over his right hip that have led the Cleveland Cavaliers to delay finalizing the deal, and the All-Star point guard remained adamant that the injury has continued to heal and is not career-threatening.
In a recent interview, Thomas insisted he is not “damaged” goods and repeatedly said no doctor has expressed long-term concerns about the right hip he initially injured in March and re-aggravated during the playoffs, costing him the final four games of his season.

There’s never been an indication that I wouldn’t be back, and there’s never been an indication that this is something messing up my career. Maybe I am not going to be back as soon this season as everyone wants me to be, but I’m going to be back, and I’m going to be the same player again. No doctor has told me anything different than that.”
