Analysis: Thomas' agent insisted his client wouldn't come off the bench, yet that's what he'll do for his first game in purple and gold. In reality, Thomas should be either sitting out or rehabbing in the G League since he's clearly not healthy, but instead he'll continue to hoist ill-timed jumpers and venture into the paint and get his shot blocked into the fifth row.

Analysis: Well, that was short-lived and disastrous. The Cavs needed to move on from Thomas and they did, and he'll now have two months in LA to try to convince teams he's healthy enough to warrant a long-term contract this summer.

Thomas pulled down three rebounds and dished out five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -25 in his 32:47 on the floor. Thomas went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Thomas looked more like the IT of 2016-17 as he aggressively drove the lane and finished 12 of 13 from the free throw line. Though he's shooting only 36.4 percent from the field over his last four games, the 5-foot-9 guard did have a season-high in minutes Tuesday and appears to be slowly rounding back into form. He's averaging 17.6 points and 4.4 assists in his past seven contests.
|Jan. 31 7:39 PM PT8:39 PM MT9:39 PM CT10:39 PM ET3:39 GMT11:39 8:39 PM MST10:39 PM EST7:39 UAE (+1)04:3922:39 ET9:39 PM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored 13 points Wednesday, going 2 of 15 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Miami Heat 91-89. Thomas pulled down five rebounds and had six assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +2 in his 29:40 of playing time. He tacked on four steals. Thomas struggled from 3-point range, coming up empty on all six of his attempts.
Analysis: Thomas continues to be hit or miss in his return. He's averaging 14.4 points on 30.5 percent shooting in the past five games. The Cavs are going to need him more than ever with Kevin Love sidelined.
|Jan. 28 5:32 PM PT6:32 PM MT7:32 PM CT8:32 PM ET1:32 GMT9:32 6:32 PM MST8:32 PM EST5:32 UAE (+1)02:3220:32 ET7:32 PM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored 14 points Sunday, going 5 of 12 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Detroit Pistons 121-104. Thomas pulled down two rebounds and had seven assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +4 in his 27:24 on the floor. Thomas went 1 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Thomas is shooting just 38.2 percent while averaging 13.3 points and 4.7 assists over his last three games, decent numbers but nothing anything close to the ones he put up with the Celtics a season ago. Though he's still under the constraints of a minutes restriction, it's fair to wonder if the two-time All-Star will ever get back to his stellar 2016-17 form this season.
|Jan. 26 6:22 PM PT7:22 PM MT8:22 PM CT9:22 PM ET2:22 GMT10:22 7:22 PM MST9:22 PM EST6:22 UAE (+1)03:2221:22 ET8:22 PM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored 12 points Friday, going 5 of 13 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Indiana Pacers 115-108. Thomas pulled down two rebounds and had five assists, accumulating a plus-minus of +2 in his 29:16 of playing time. He added one block. Thomas went 2 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Thomas is just 8 of 22 from the field and 2 of 10 from deep over the last two games.

Thomas pulled down one rebound and dished out two assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -15 in his 27:57 of playing time. He added one steal.
Analysis: Like many guards, Thomas struggled to make shots against San Antonio's tight defense, though he has been showing recent signs of getting back to his excellent 2016-17 form. The 5-foot-9 dynamo came in averaging 21.3 points and four assists over his previous three games, plus he's now up to getting around 25-30 minutes per night.
|Jan. 20 3:19 PM PT4:19 PM MT5:19 PM CT6:19 PM ET23:19 GMT7:19 4:19 PM MST6:19 PM EST3:19 UAE (+1)00:1918:19 ET5:19 PM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored 24 points Saturday on 8-of-14 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Oklahoma City Thunder 148-124. Thomas did not grab a rebound but dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -24 in his 25:43 on the floor. He added one steal. Thomas went 4 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Thomas continues to make progress as he's averaged 21.3 points over his last three games.
|Jan. 18 6:22 PM PT7:22 PM MT8:22 PM CT9:22 PM ET2:22 GMT10:22 7:22 PM MST9:22 PM EST6:22 UAE (+1)03:2221:22 ET8:22 PM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored 21 points Thursday, going 6 of 15 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers topped the Orlando Magic 104-103. Thomas pulled down three rebounds and dished out four assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -1 in his 29:58 on the floor. He added two steals. Thomas went 3 of 10 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Thomas has gotten closer to form with 40 points and eight assists over his last two games. However, he's gone just 4 for 17 from 3-point range in the span.
|Jan. 16 10:04 PM PT11:04 PM MT12:04 AM CT1:04 AM ET6:04 GMT14:04 11:04 PM MST1:04 AM EST10:04 UAE07:041:04 ET12:04 AM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored 19 points Monday, going 8 of 21 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors 118-108. Thomas grabbed one rebound and dished out four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -9 in his 31:59 of playing time. Thomas went 1 of 7 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Clearly still rusty from his long layoff from a hip injury, Thomas has shot a brutal 27.7 percent (13 for 47) from the floor and gone 2 of 18 from 3-point range while averaging just 10.7 points over his last three games. The positive is the 32 minutes were a season-high, and owners who remain patient should be rewarded when he does return to form.
|Jan. 11 2:49 PM PT3:49 PM MT4:49 PM CT5:49 PM ET22:49 GMT6:49 3:49 PM MST5:49 PM EST2:49 UAE (+1)23:4917:49 ET4:49 PM CTNaN:� - Change in plans, Thomas (rest) will play Thursday against the Raptors, and sit out Friday. It originally was the opposite.
Analysis: Resting on either end of a back-to-back appears to be the early norm for Thomas as he looks to get back into game shape.
|Jan. 11 7:45 PM PT8:45 PM MT9:45 PM CT10:45 PM ET3:45 GMT11:45 8:45 PM MST10:45 PM EST7:45 UAE (+1)04:4522:45 ET9:45 PM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored four points Thursday, going 2 of 15 from the field, as the Cleveland Cavaliers lost to the Toronto Raptors 133-99. Thomas grabbed two rebounds and dished out three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -20 in his 24:34 on the floor. He added one block. Thomas struggled from behind the arc, missing all six of his attempts.
Analysis: Thomas missed his first 11 shots, but will get a chance to think about it when he is rested Friday in the second of a back-to-back. Thomas failed to make at least one 3-pointer for the first time in 60 games. It had been the second-longest streak in the NBA behind Golden State's Klay Thompson (95).
|Jan. 9 9:46 PM PT10:46 PM MT11:46 PM CT12:46 AM ET5:46 GMT13:46 10:46 PM MST12:46 AM EST9:46 UAE06:460:46 ET11:46 PM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored nine points Monday on 3-of-11 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers fell to the Minnesota Timberwolves 127-99. Thomas pulled down one rebound and had three assists, accumulating a plus-minus of -20 in his 18:49 on the floor. Thomas went 1 of 5 from 3-point range.
Analysis: Thomas may have seen more minutes in his third game back from injury, but he was ejected for a hard foul on Andrew Wiggins in the third quarter that was ruled a Flagrant 2. Though this was the most disappointing of his brief appearances in a Cavs' uniform, the 2016-17 All-Star is still averaging 15 points and 3.3 assists in only 19.7 minutes per game since returning.
|Jan. 6 6:52 PM PT7:52 PM MT8:52 PM CT9:52 PM ET2:52 GMT10:52 7:52 PM MST9:52 PM EST6:52 UAE (+1)03:5221:52 ET8:52 PM CTNaN:� - Isaiah Thomas scored 19 points Saturday on 7-of-13 shooting as the Cleveland Cavaliers defeated the Orlando Magic 131-127. Thomas pulled down two rebounds and had four assists, tallying a plus-minus of -3 in his 21:24 on the floor. Thomas went 2 of 4 from behind the arc.
Analysis: Thomas had 19 points and four assists in his first start since returning from a hip injury that delayed his Cavaliers debut. As expected, he's being kept on a minutes limit but he was up three minutes from his season debut on Tuesday.
|Sep. 26 5:24 PM PT6:24 PM MT7:24 PM CT8:24 PM ET0:24 GMT8:24 5:24 PM MST7:24 PM EST4:24 UAE (+1)02:2420:24 ET7:24 PM CTNaN:� - Making his long-awaited Cavaliers debut, Thomas scored 17 points Tuesday on 6-of-12 shooting as Cleveland topped the Portland Trail Blazers 127-110. Thomas did not grab a rebound but had three assists, tallying a plus-minus of +17 in his 18:56 of playing time. Thomas went 3 of 8 from behind the arc.
Analysis: The high-scoring point guard came out firing in his first game since suffering a hip injury in the Eastern Conference finals back in May. Thomas still won't be providing a maximum fantasy return in the near future due to a minutes restriction, but this performance showed he can contribute even if he'll be limited for a while longer.
|Aug. 25 8:43 PM PT9:43 PM MT10:43 PM CT11:43 PM ET3:43 GMT11:43 8:43 PM MST10:43 PM EST7:43 UAE (+1)05:4323:43 ET10:43 PM CTNaN:� - The Cleveland Cavaliers examined Thomas on Friday in Cleveland and apparently there are questions about his recovery from a postseason hip injury. Cavaliers officials are looking at the test results, ESPN.com reported, and how it might affect the trade that shipped Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics earlier this week. There is speculation that the condition of his injured hip could void the deal.
Analysis: Tuesday's trade included Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round draft pick going to the Cavaliers for Irving. There's also the possibility that rather than voiding the deal the Cavaliers could ask for additional compensation such as another draft pick. Thomas suffered the injury during the playoffs and is rehabbing the hip. ESPN reported that he has not begun running.
|Aug. 22 4:27 PM PT5:27 PM MT6:27 PM CT7:27 PM ET23:27 GMT7:27 4:27 PM MST6:27 PM EST3:27 UAE (+1)01:2719:27 ET6:27 PM CTNaN:� - The Celtics have traded Thomas along with forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round pick originally belonging to the Nets to the Cavaliers for fellow All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving.
Analysis: Thomas may be hard-pressed to match last season's career-high 28.9 points per game as the clear-cut No. 2 option in Cleveland, though he'll surely still have a prominent role on one of the league's premier offensive teams. The standout guard should come in highly motivated with a chance to possibly secure a max contract as a free agent next summer.
