Thomas Out Of Playoffs With Hip Injury [VIDEO]
As if the Boston Celtics don't have enough problems - now Isaiah Thomas has been ruled out of the playoff with a hip injury. He did not even fly with the team to Cleveland for game three Sunday night.
The team is saying the injury is a 're-aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear'.
You have to go back to March 15th when he injured the hip against Minnesota. Thomas reaggravated the injury in game six vs Washington. He did not play in the second half Friday night vs Cleveland.
There is the very real possibility that he will need surgery.
"Isaiah has worked tirelessly to manage this injury since it first occurred. The swelling increased during the first two games against Cleveland, and in order to avoid more significant long-term damage to his hip, we could no longer allow him to continue." - Dr. Brian McKeon, Team Statement
