Isaiah Thomas

Boston Celtics

Isaiah Thomas scored 34 points in win

Usually, a win with a team-high 34 points when your team dropped 130 would be the headline, but not when Devin Booker more than doubled it tonight. Thomas has to be pleased about getting this win, especially after the Celtics blew their last game in Phoenix earlier this month. Thomas' Celtics are just 1.0 games behind the Cavs and he really wants that No. 1 seed, so he's not likely to rest until the Boston seed is locked up.

    Isaiah Thomas scores 25 points vs. Pacers

    His team-high scoring output marked the 34th consecutive time he's lead the Celtics in scoring. In the last 40 years, only Michael Jordan has posted a longer streak -- MJ did it in 1988 and 1987. Thomas is also closing in on the franchise record for 3-pointers in a season and is only nine behind Antoine Walker in 2002.

    Isaiah Thomas scores 25 points in return

    He admitted that his knee isn't 100 percent, but there was no doubt that he would play. "I can’t sit this one out," Thomas said before the game. "I know what’s at stake, I know it’s a big game for us." The Celtics now have a 2.5 game cushion over the Wizards for second place in the East, and they only trail the Cavaliers by 2.0 games. It's possible IT4 could get another DNP-rest down the stretch, but the good news for his fantasy owners is that the Celtics play three more times this week.

    Isaiah Thomas (bruised knee) confirmed as playing tonight

    Thomas will play and start in tonight's game against the Washington Wizards after previously being listed as probable on the Celtics' injury report with a bone bruise in his right knee that had forced him to miss two consecutive games. His return to the lineup will send Marcus Smart back to the bench to resume a reserve role. Thomas does not have any minutes restriction and scored 50 fantasy points in both prior meetings with the Wizards. Avery Bradley was unavailable for those games, which means Thomas' chances of hitting 50 fantasy points again tonight are slightly lowered. Thomas' salary has also fallen all the way down to $8.2k on DraftKings and will likely come in at lower than normal ownership after missing consecutive games. He should still be able to hit his salary-based expectations and is an elite GPP option due to the potential upside.

    Isaiah Thomas (knee) will play Monday vs. WAS

    Thomas was a full participant during shootaround, and head coach Brad Steven said that Thomas will not have a minutes restriction following his two-game stint on the sidelines, so he's safe to deploy in all settings. Marcus Smart should return to the bench with IT4 active, and his value will take a decent sized hit with the return to the second unit.

    Stevens 'hopeful' that Thomas can play Monday

    The Celtics have already ruled Thomas out of both Friday's game vs. the Nets and Sunday's game vs. the 76ers. There has been some speculation that Boston is merely resting their best player against two of the worst teams in the league, but Stevens said it was "not a means of rest" and that Thomas' knee experienced some swelling on Thursday night. Stay tuned over the weekend for more updates. In the meantime, Marcus Smart will start in place of Thomas.

    Isaiah Thomas will miss next two games for Boston

    The Celtics All Star point guard will not travel with the team for their two game road trip as he recovers from a bone bruise in his right knee. Marcus Smart is the clear beneficiary here as he sees a five percent plus usage bump with IT3 off the floor.

    Isaiah Thomas (knee) will miss next two games

    He's not even traveling with the team and will miss at least Friday's game vs. the Nets and Sunday's game vs. the 76ers. Celtics coach Brad Stevens has said that he won't rest his players if they're healthy, but Thomas is sitting out against two teams with a combined 36-97 record. The Celtics have a huge game vs. the Wizards on Monday, so Thomas' owners should expect him back for that one. Marcus Smart is worth deploying in all formats if you're OK with a volatile FG percentage, while Terry Rozier gets a bump in minutes as well. Additionally, Avery Bradley, Jae Crowder and Al Horford will all see a bump in usage.

    Isaiah Thomas scores 27 points w/ four 3s

    Thomas is averaging 14.3 shot attempts in his past three games, down from his season average of 19.7. It's partly because teams are swarming him defensively and daring other players to beat them, but there's obviously no cause for concern here.

    Isaiah Thomas scores 22 points with full line

    Thomas became just the third Celtic in Boston history to record at least 200 3-pointers in a season, joining the likes of Antoine Walker and Paul Pierce, and he essentially got whatever he wanted against a Chicago team that seemed uninterested in playing defense. Thomas went 9-of-14 from the field and 4-of-8 from beyond the arc, giving him a true shooting percentage of 78.6 to accompany his 30.8 usage rate, and IT4 owners can expect his minutes to be back in the 30s on Wednesday.
