Cavs Targeting Early January Return for All-Star Guard Isaiah Thomas

The Cavaliers have practices scheduled for this weekend ahead of their Christmas Day Finals rematch against the Golden State Warriors, where Thomas is expected to play in live ball competition.

Isaiah Thomas's return to the court is fast approaching, and will likely be preceeded by practice with the Cavaliers' G League team, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin.

"Following the Warriors game, the Cavs play the Sacramento Kings on December 27, and then they have a one-day retreat planned in Napa, California, after that contest, which one source close to Thomas described as a "nice environment" for the two-time All-Star to "get ready" to play his first game".

The Cavs' official timeline for Thomas' recovery provided to the media in late September called for Thomas to be playing games by the first of the year. When he does so, it will mark the first time he has participated in the full-court practice sessions since the Cavaliers acquired him via the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics.

The Cavs are hoping to find a way for Thomas to scrimmage with their G-League affiliate, the Canton Charge, multiple team sources told ESPN.

Isaiah has had a lot to say about Boston's decision to trade him and it will be an emotional occasion if he suits up on that night to face his former team as he's determined to gain some level of revenge.

"I don't know where that came from, but I hope so", coach Ty Lue said on Sunday.

After a rocky start, the Wine and Gold have reeled off 18 wins from their last 19 games and are rolling at the moment.
