Danny Ainge on Isaiah Thomas return'A guy I will never bet against

It may take time for the diminutive Thomas to shake off the rust after a long layoff, but once he acclimatizes, the Cavs are going to be a much deadlier team. Part of the reason for that is Cleveland, a veteran-laden team that has reeled off 18 victories in its past 19 games, rarely practices. Thomas hasn't played since the end of last postseason due to a hip injury, and while the usual timetable to return from the injury had him coming back in January, Charania's report was the first time anyone gave a specific range of dates.

The Cavs are scheduled to hold a practice in San Francisco on Christmas Eve.

Following the Warriors game, the Cavs play the on December 27, and then they have a one-day retreat planned in Napa, California, after that contest, which one source close to Thomas described as a "nice environment" for the two-time All-Star to "get ready" to play his first game.

Thomas has yet to practice in a 5-on-5 full-court set up by the Cavs, partly because the league's oldest team does not practice as often as other teams do.

Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas (4) reacts after defeating the Washington Wizards in game two of the second round of the 2017 NBA Playoffs at TD Garden, May 2, 2017. Cleveland has managed to keep pace out East with a 23-9 record, but is eager for Thomas' return to ease the load carried by superstar forward LeBron James.

"I don't know where that came from, but I hope so", Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue said Sunday night of the report, per ESPN. "When he's ready to play, I'm ready".

Dave McMenamin of ESPN reported that Isaiah Thomas is close to his return, but that he may not play for the Cleveland Cavaliers immediately.

The targeted time period is especially notable because the Cavaliers face Irving and the Celtics on January 3 in Boston.
