Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas will miss the rest of the playoffs because of a hip injury
Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas will miss the rest of the playoffs because of a hip injury.
The team made the announcement on Saturday, a day after Thomas left Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against Cleveland in the second half.
Thomas injured the hip in March and aggravated it in Game 6 of the East semi-finals against Washington. Team doctor Brian McKeon says if he continues playing, he could have more significant long-term damage to his hip.
Thomas did not travel with the team to Cleveland for Sundays third game of the best-of-seven series. The Cavaliers lead the top-seeded Celtics 2-0.
