Thomas will not play in first return trip to Boston

Thomas, sidelined with a hip injury since last season's Eastern Conference finals, will make his debut for the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight against the Portland Trail Blazers.

In his 76 games played for the Celtics during their 2016-17 campaign, Thomas turned in averages of 28.9 points on.463 shooting from the field (both career-highs), 5.9 assists, and 2.7 rebounds in 33.8 minutes per game - all while sinking.909 percent of his free-throws. The team already announced that he won't play against his former team when the Cavs travel to Boston on Wednesday.

Thomas has not held back his displeasure with the Boston front office since the summer blockbuster trade that sent him to Cleveland (along with forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round pick) for guard Kyrie Irving.

The Rockets have the second-best record in the Western Conference behind Golden State at 26-9, and Harden leads the National Basketball Association with his scoring average of 32.3 points per game. But I can wait until February.

The Cavs return to Boston again February 11.

Then they went through the most absurd offseason we have ever seen with a complete roster turnover, helping set up this team for this generation and the next.

"I keep saying that I gave that city everything I had and they showed me genuine love back, and I think that love is going to last forever".

"My hip is better but I have no rhythm", Thomas said.

"It won't be that tough 'cause I know where I am right now". The Bulls lost for only the fourth time in 14 games since Mirotic returned to the lineup after suffering facial injuries following a dispute with teammate Bobby Portis.

The Blazers also are likely getting back their All-Star point guard, Damian Lillard, who missed the past five games with a right hamstring strain. Ever since I stepped foot in Cleveland, it's been all genuine love, and it's insane because I haven't played yet.

McCollum said of the Cavs: "We know they're going to come out with lot of energy, having two days' rest".
