Additional Setback


Wizards’ Isaiah Thomas Suffers Thumb Injury, Out Two Months

Since his days of calling for a maximum contract, things haven’t gone according to plan for Isaiah Thomas who was dealt with yet another injury.

“This was an unfortunate setback for Isaiah, but with his resolve and the top care he will receive from our medical team, we expect him to make a full recovery,” Washington Wizards general manager Tommy Sheppard said in a statement. “In the meantime, he will continue to mentor our young guards and have a positive impact on the team as we start training camp.”

According to The Athletic, Thomas injured his thumb while playing a pick-up game and will now be sidelined for six-to-eight weeks. He is expected to miss the entirety of training camp and will not be ready for the start of the upcoming NBA regular season.

The point guard doesn’t seem too worried based off his recent tweet regarding the injury.

The two-time All-Star struggled with hip problems after experiencing a career renaissance with the Boston Celtics. He played sparingly in his time with the Denver Nuggets last year despite posting 8.1 points per game through 12 games. He was brought into Washington with the expectations of John Wall missing the entirety of the season with injury concerns.

Once healthy, Thomas is expected to fill the secondary point guard role for the Wizards.
