Cavs GM Koby Altman Reveals Team's Plan for Isaiah Thomas' Hip Injury

The Cleveland Cavaliers put the spotlight on newly acquired Isaiah Thomas during Thursday's news conference, but the team went to great lengths to avoid shedding much light on the All-Star guard's injured right hip.

During the presser, Cavs general manager Koby Altman said that Thomas' road to recovery will be "non surgical". "We're not going to comment on the injury and we're not going to comment on a timetable". ". We're not going to rush it, at all". Boston ultimately agreed to send Cleveland an additional second-round draft pick to complete the swap.

"I'm just getting treatment each and every single day, working out in the weight room", Thomas said.

Of course, most of the questions at today's press conference were directed at Thomas, who will be wearing #3 for the Cavs this season.

By trading Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics, the Cavaliers received a prolific scorer in Isaiah Thomas, a defensive expert in Jae Crowder, a true center in Ante Zizic, and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round pick, which is considered their most valuable acquisition.

Dressed smartly in a wine-colored sport coat for his introductory news conference, Thomas said the Celtics' decision to trade him was initially painful.

Coach Tyronn Lue said that Thomas would not start the season and declared Derrick Rose as the team's primary point guard with Jose Calderon backing him up in Thomas' absence. "I.T., everybody in Boston is grateful for I.T. and all that he's done".

Thomas, who spent his first three National Basketball Association seasons playing for struggling teams in Sacramento, was effusive in his praise of James. "I just told her 'I'm going to Cleveland, ' and five minutes later she passed".

According to ESPN's Chris Haynes, Thomas is leaving his current management company, Excel Sports Management, and is looking for a new agent to guide him into free agency next year.

Like Thomas, Crowder said being traded was hard and made more so that when the deal was first announced on August 22, he was with his ailing mother in Atlanta. "I've been in situations before where things have been a little tough and we haven't had the best players and we just kept fighting and worked with what we had". The Cavaliers were able to acquire a dedicated and terrific player in Thomas for this upcoming season.
