Los Angeles Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas is not with the team in Detroit and meeting with doctors in New York to evaluate options for his sore hip.
Thomas suffered a serious right hip injury last season with the Boston Celtics and missed the first 36 games of this year while with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was traded to the Lakers at the trade deadline.
Thomas decided not to have surgery this past summer on his hip, a route many expert doctors recommended.
The 5-foot-9 guard has appeared in 17 games with the Lakers and averaged 15.6 points, 2.1 rebounds and 5.0 assists while shooting 38.3 percent from the field and 32.7 percent from three.
Thomas will become a free-agent after the season ends.
