Isaiah Thomas May Have Given Us The Reason For The Cavs Struggles

After recovering from a hip injury, Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas has played five games during the 2017-18 season, and he’s still trying to whip his body into game shape.

Physically, the 28-year-old guard feels good enough to take the court. However, after the Cavaliers' 118-108 loss to the Golden State Warriors on Monday, he explained it'll take real game time to regain his conditioning:


"That's the only thing that's gonna help me, because we don't practice. Only thing that's gonna help me is getting reps, running up and down the floor, getting my hip, getting my body accustomed to taking a beating and to running up and down the floor, getting in basketball shape."

Very little practice has been the standard for the Cavaliers, per's Joe Vardon.

Thomas played 32 minutes against the Warriors, scoring 19 points, dishing out four assists and converting eight of 21 shot attempts. It's worth monitoring his workload going forward. The Cavaliers need him at his best in the spring.
