Shams Charania reported that Thomas could return during the first week of January.

Former Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas is inching closer to his return for the Cleveland Cavaliers and will scrimmage with their G-League affiliate the Canton Charge soon, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

Thomas has missed the entire season so far as he continues to recover from an injury to his right hip.

If all goes well, there's a likelihood, slim or not, that Isaiah Thomas will finally be able to make his Cavs debut in any of Cleveland's last three games of the year.

Those two days are expected to afford Thomas his first chance to get in his first full court 5-on-5 practice since joining the team following a trade with the Boston Celtics in August.




"I don't know where that came from, but I hope so", Tyronn Lue said Sunday night of the report.

A team source told ESPN that the final determination for when Thomas would play would be a joint decision agreed upon by Thomas, the Cavs' front office, and the Cavs' medical staff.

LeBron James, in his 15th season in the National Basketball Association, said what he is achieving on the court has not been done a lot in league history, adding that he wants to "break the mold" and stereotype that older players can not dominate the game as much as younger players.

The Cavaliers play the Celtics on January 3, and it has been reported that Thomas wants to be ready to face his old team.

After a rocky start, the Wine and Gold have reeled off 18 wins from their last 19 games and are rolling at the moment.
