Return date finally announced for Cavaliers All-Star Isaiah Thomas

Isaiah Thomas Cavs

Thomas, who was traded to Cleveland from the Celtics in the deal that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston, has not played at all this season due to a hip injury he suffered in March. The last time Thomas took the court was Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals when he was still a member of those Celtics and facing the Cavaliers.

Thomas will return from his hip injury on Tuesday night when the Cavaliers host the Portland Trail Blazers, but will sit out Wednesday night's visit to the TD Garden. Considering that the Cavaliers will play in Boston on a second night of a back-to-back, this doesn't come as a surprise.

Isaiah Thomas' time has finally arrived. This ain't no revenge game. Each and every day, I just attacked it every day to try to get better and now that day is here. They know what they gave up.it's all good.

In any case, there are all kinds of things to get excited about over this past year, that has brought them to this point right now. To get back to the NBA Finals, and to beat the Golden State Warriors, the Cavaliers have to find a way of improving on the defensive side of the ball.

Trump fires entire HIV/AIDS advisory council via FedEx letter
President Donald Trump has fired the remaining members of the HIV/AIDS council , sending them pink slips in the mail via FedEx. Scott Schoettes , a senior attorney for Lambda Legal who resigned from the council in June, considers the firings "dangerous".

Thomas said he didn't want to force it on Wednesday night, and can wait until February to face his former team. "I have no feel for the game right now". "It's been a long process for me". Get everything out of this game I possibly could. The Cavaliers have been winning, and keeping pace at the top of the Eastern Conference, with a hotchpotch of veterans playing the point including Jose Calderon, Derrick Rose and the veteran Dwyane Wade, who is much more of a shooting guard anyway.

The Blazers beat Chicago 124-120 in overtime Monday.

"We needed it", McCollum said on the Blazers' telecast after the win.

McCollum said of the Cavs: "We know they're going to come out with lot of energy, having two days' rest".
