Lakers’ Thomas not with team, evaluating options on hip

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.

  1. I always have mixed feelings about Isaiah Thomas. Many times, he was heroic for the Celtics, especially at the end of last season when he played injured, his sister passed, as he cracked off his front tooth all to sacrifice for the Celtics. And then he got AINGE’D, like so many in the league have.

    AINGE is not done yet, not by a long shot. No one can stop his craftiness.

    BUT… Kyrie just went out too… so perhaps an exchange of damaged goods. Only time will tell, but right now, in the GM horse race, KOBY Altman is looking like the leader of the pack, amazingly.
