Cleveland Cavaliers reveal return date for Isaiah Thomas Video

Jose Calderon, who the Cavaliers signed this past offseason, has done a steady job in the starting point guard spot, with Dwyane Wade helping off the bench, but it will likely give Cleveland more stability and reliability at the position as Thomas eases his way back into his regular role.

Thomas is not expected to play on back-to-back nights this early in his return. In his 76 games played for the Celtics during their 2016-17 campaign, Thomas turned in averages of 28.9 points on.463 shooting from the field (both career-highs), 5.9 assists, and 2.7 rebounds in 33.8 minutes per game - all while sinking.909 percent of his free-throws. The Cavs will then pack up and head to Boston for their Wednesday night match-up with the Boston Celtics inside TD Garden - an arena Thomas knows well. Getting in shape. Timing. "Everybody is excited for him and I'm excited", Lue told on Tuesday. He can't get frustrated thinking it's going to happen overnight. "It's great to see him back on the court tonight". The Cavs are 24-12 this season.

Thomas says he can score but it's not quite where he'd like his game to be.

The Cavs said on Monday that Thomas looked good through a scrimmage and will be playing in a limited capacity Tuesday when the team faces the Portland Trail Blazers. They knew what they got.

The day the Cleveland Cavaliers have been so patiently waiting for is finally on the horizon.

Thomas is recovering from a torn labrum and other stress injuries related to his right hip. But, I mean, for being 28-years old and this being the first time I've ever been really hurt and had to sit down, it made you appreciate it even more and I definitely don't take it for granted."This made me a better basketball player, a better person mentally and physically".
