Isaiah Thomas Is Out For The Season

Thomas did score 53 points on his sister's birthday in one of the season's most touching moments, and he did reach the conference finals with a Celtics team that's far from a juggernaut on paper, but overall the postseason wasn't quite the coming-out party it could have been for him.

Isaiah Thomas (hip) will miss the remainder of this year's postseason following an aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear. Thomas initially hurt his hip on March 15 and it cost him two games back then.

"Isaiah has worked tirelessly to manage this injury since it first occurred", McKeon said.

The Celtics are down 0-2 to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the series.

Thomas earned All-NBA second-team honors this week after averaging 28.9 points and 5.9 assists over 33.8 minutes per game during the regular season.

Hours after he was snubbed as a nominee for the league's Most Valuable Player award, James scored 30 points on Friday night as the Cavaliers led 72-31 at the break - the largest half-time advantage in National Basketball Association post-season history. Most important, I just hope he's better.

"I don't care if you win by 200 points", Lue said. His play led the Celtics to the best record in the Eastern Conference. Thomas did not play in the second half after the injury flared up in the second quarter.

Thomas' world was rocked the day before the start of the playoffs with news that his younger sister, Chyna, died in a vehicle crash just outside Seattle on April 15. This was the first time since 2012 that Boston returned to the Conference Finals which is a good sign that this rebuild upstarted by Isaiah Thomas, is moving in the right direction.

Boston's chances in the series already looked grim following two home blowout losses in the first two games, so this injury won't help matters.
