Isaiah Thomas made 3-of-15 from the field for seven points with one rebound, five assists, one block and five turnovers in 25 minutes against the Wolves on Thursday.
He's clearly lacking a rapport with his team and he hinted that he had to stand up for himself against Rajon Rondo when he was ejected on Wednesday. Thomas isn't a part of the Lakers' future and it's a mystery what the team will do with him once Lonzo Ball comes back. Expect Thomas to be a mid-round player as long as he's active.

Josh Hart finished Wednesday's road loss with 15 points (5-of-6 FGs, 2-of-3 FTs), six rebounds, three 3-pointers, two assists, two steals, one block and two turnovers in 31 minutes.

Lonzo Ball (knee) said recently that he feels "good enough to play," but will rest through the All-Star break as a precaution. It will be very interesting to see how coach Luke Walton handles his rotations once his backcourt is complete, but Hart should still find minutes with the versatility to play multiple positions. The same can't be said for veterans like Isaiah Thomas and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, both of whom are on expiring contracts.

Gary Payton II logged 17 minutes off the bench on Wednesday, scoring four points with two rebounds and no other stats to his credit.

Isaiah Thomas was ejected early tonight and Lonzo Ball (knee) is out through the break, so L.A. turned to Payton II as a backcourt band-aid. It's interesting that he played ahead of Tyler Ennis (scoreless in five minutes), but this doesn't impact typical fantasy owners.

Lonzo Ball (knee) will not return for the Lakers until after the All-Star break.

Ball went through part of Tuesday's practice and "looked good," but L.A. will play it safe since he still felt "a little bit of discomfort." This also makes it unlikely that Ball will play in the Rising Stars game during All-Star weekend, but coach Luke Walton added that it's not his decision to make. Josh Hart and Isaiah Thomas should soak up Ball's minutes in L.A.'s upcoming back-to-back set.
Feb 13 - 3:31 PM

Lonzo Ball (knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game vs. the Mavericks.

Lonzo will reportedly travel to Dallas with the team for Saturday's game; however, with the Lakers not practicing on the travel day, Ball is unable to get a practice in. Coach Luke Walton has stated that he wants Ball to put in some solid practice time before he returns to game action. Isaiah Thomas is expected to be available for Saturday's game, which means he will likely draw the start.
Feb 9 - 9:23 AM

Larry Nance has been traded to the Cavaliers.

Nance and Clarkson will head to Cleveland in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Channing Frye and Cleveland's first-round pick. The Cavaliers rank 13th in the NBA in pace, but you'd think that will go up with Nance and JC running the floor. Barring another move (Cleveland is linked to DeAndre Jordan), Nance will compete for minutes with Tristan Thompson and Jae Crowder, but only needs minutes in the 20s to help fantasy owners. He's a solid add, but the deadline could create better pickups.
Feb 8 - 12:07 PM

Derrick Rose (knee) will play off the Cavaliers' bench on Thursday.

The Cavs haven't cited a specific minute-limit for Rose, but we're not expecting him to play much and he's not worth a pickup with Isaiah Thomas healthy. Among other concerns, coach Ty Lue has hinted that Rose's workload will only increase on nights when Dwyane Wade is rested. Daily Slant: Despite Rose's return, Isaiah Thomas is still an elite DFS play on this slate. His price is only going to rise from this point forward and if his 33 minutes on Monday is any indication, he's about ready to be unleashed. The ORL/CLE tilt is probably a slate-changer - if this one stays competitive, both teams play such horrific defense that it has potential to turn into a shootout. Thomas is the top dollar per point play on the CLE side.
Jan 18 - 5:29 PM

Jose Calderon expects to be out of the Cavs' rotation now that Isaiah Thomas is playing.

"I'm going to go back to my role, staying ready and keeping the other guys on the team sharp," Calderon said. "And there [are] going to be some days when Isaiah can't play or D Wade might need a break." He wasn't offering reliable fantasy value even as a starter.
Jan 4 - 5:52 PM

The Celtics earned their fourth straight win on Sunday, led by Kyrie Irving's game-high 28 points, eight rebounds, four 3-pointers, two assists, two steals and one block.

Boston was coming off a massive comeback victory vs. Houston, in a game they one trailed by 26 points, and they fended off the visiting Nets tonight, 108-105. Irving sank 10-of-21 shots and all four of his free throw attempts, and he's scored at least 20 points in 11 consecutive games. Boston's next game comes Wednesday vs. LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas and the visiting Cavaliers.

Tyronn Lue said that Derrick Rose will open the 2017-18 season as the Cavs' starting point guard while Isaiah Thomas recovers from his hip injury.

Lue also wants Rose working with the second unit, so he'll sub him out early in the first quarter in order to let him get some reps with the reserves. Rose may be able to muster up some low-end value to begin the year, but he probably won't be worth owning in most leagues once Isaiah Thomas gets back to the court in January, making him an unattractive draft day target in 12-team leagues.

Derrick Rose had seven points and three assists in 15 minutes for the Cavs on Wednesday.

Rose will begin the season as the Cavs' starting PG, a job he'll keep as long as he's healthy and Isaiah Thomas (hip) is still rehabbing. Thomas is targeting a return in January, however, and Rose's own injury history makes him little more than an expendable fantasy flier. Draft him at your own risk.

Kyrie Irving will officially join the Celtics after they agreed to trade terms with Cleveland on Wednesday.

The Celtics are throwing in a second-round pick in 2020 to close this deal, which was in limbo due to questions about Isaiah Thomas' injured hip. They got their guy in the end, landing a 25-year-old, four-time All-Star to spearhead the offense. Kyrie should fare well in the Celtics' pass-happy attack, and his 3-point totals could be lofty -- he went 40.1 percent from deep on 6.1 attempts per game last season, while Thomas launched 8.5 threes per game for Boston.
Wed, Aug 30, 2017 10:33:00 PM

The Cavaliers are reportedly still pursuing an additional first-round pick from Boston to complete the deal involving Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas (hip).

Both teams would need to agree to a deadline extension if no agreement is made before 10am ET. Adrian Wojnarowski previously reported that "[the Cavs] could be inclined to complete the deal for a late first-round pick or second-round considerations," but so far the Celtics haven't sweetened the deal. We'll know more as the 10am deadline approaches.
Wed, Aug 30, 2017 10:19:00 PM

Kyrie Irving has been traded to the Celtics in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and Brooklyn's 2018 first-round pick.

There's no such thing as an offseason in the NBA. For the Celtics, they finally have their face of the franchise in Irving and he's under contract for the next two seasons with a player option for the third. Irving had a 41.7 usage rate when LeBron James was off the floor last season, so it's going to be exciting to see what kind of numbers he puts up as the clear alpha dog. He looks like a rock-solid pick at the start of the second round in standard drafts and you could even make an argument to take him at the end of the first.

The Celtics and Cavs have engaged in active trade discussions centered on Kyrie Irving and Isaiah Thomas, according to Shams Charania of The Verticle.

With a treasure trove of draft picks, Boston can probably offer Cleveland the most attractive package in any deal for Irving, and Thomas would fit in nicely in the Cavs' system. Irving might see some more shot opportunities in Boston, but it likely wouldn't be a dramatic uptick in usage with Al Horford and Gordon Hayward also needing the rock. Still, he should still be able to work at a top-25 evaluation as a member of the Celtics. As for Thomas, it wouldn't be the best landing spot due to the presence of Derrick Rose, but he'd still very likely be an early-round guy.

The Celtics reportedly are reportedly pursuing a plan that would net them both Gordon Hayward and Paul George this offseason.

The Celtics will have the cap space to make a legitimate offer to Hayward, and the assets to present the Pacers with a competitive offer for Paul George, so they have the pieces in place to potentially put together a superteam of their own this offseason. Also, if the Celtics aren't able to secure Hayward via free agency, they will reportedly look to Blake Griffin as a plan B. If Boston is able to bring in another star player this offseason, Isaiah Thomas' value would take a slight hit.

Marcus Smart started Game 3 in place of Isaiah Thomas (hip), scoring a career-high 27 points on 8-of-14 FGs, including seven 3-pointers, with seven assists, five rebounds, two steals and one block in 41 minutes.

Smart scored 20+ points just four times during the regular season, while shooting 35.9 percent from the field, and he chose an ideal time to break out offensively. Brad Stevens admitted that with Smart starting in place of Thomas the Celtics are "a little bit bigger across the board [defensively]," and they limited the Cavs' high-powered offense to a relatively low 108 points tonight. Backup PG Terry Rozier played just eight minutes tonight, and Smart should have a massive role again on Tuesday.

Avery Bradley hit a game-winning 3-pointer with 0.1 seconds left on Sunday, finishing with 20 points in the Celtics' 111-108 Game 3 victory.

Bradley's final shot bounced around the rim a few times before dropping through the hoop, a fortuitous time-waster that prevented the Cavs from getting off another shot. He didn't shoot well overall, at 8-of-23 from the field, but he added four assists, three rebounds and two steals without any turnovers in 42 minutes. With Isaiah Thomas (hip) out of commission, Bradley's production is as critical as ever for the Celtics' playoff hopes.
Sun, May 21, 2017 11:24:00 PM

Amir Johnson will remain in the starting lineup for Wednesday's Game 5 against the Wizards.

Johnson should be able to flirt with around 12 minutes as a starter tonight, which obviously isn't enough time for him to bring any meaningful contributions to the stat sheet. Expect the Celtics to go with their standard starting five of Isaiah Thomas, Avery Bradley (hip), Jae Crowder, Johnson and Al Horford for Game 5.
Wed, May 10, 2017 01:08:00 PM

Celtics head coach Brad Stevens said after Tuesday's practice that it "looks like Avery Bradley is all set to go for Game 5" on Wednesday vs. the Wizards.

Bradley injured his right hip pointer in Game 2 and his left hip pointer in Game 3, but it's not been something that's required him to spend any time on the sidelines, and he said he was feeling "a lot better" after Tuesday's practice. Stevens also implied that he'll stick with the same starting lineup he went with for Game 4, so for now, expect Isaiah Thomas, Bradley, Jae Crowder, Amir Johnson and Al Horford to be in the starting five for Game 5.
Tue, May 9, 2017 02:16:00 PM

Amir Johnson will replace Gerald Green in the starting lineup for Sunday's Game 4 in Washington.

The Celtics lost Game 3 with Green in the starting five, so they'll go back to the lineup that got them a win in Game 2 featuring Isiah Thomas, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder, Johnson and Al Horford. Green could be headed for a DNP-CD, and although Johnson will be starting, it's unlikely he'll play much.
