In one of the most important games of the season tonight against the Miami Heat, the Celts will welcome back Isaiah Thomas, who had missed the past eight games with a back injury:
Isaiah Thomas will return for the Celtics tonight. His 214 points are the most ever scored by a Celtic in his first ten games.

Thomas suffered the injury against Miami on March 9th, when the guard was driving the lane and fouled hard by a number of Heat players, including Dwayne Wade. Emotions should be running high at the TD Garden tonight, so don't be surprised if someone on the Celts gives Wade a little love tap in the paint at some point during the game:
Speaking of Wade, Thomas didn't think the foul was a big deal, but he didn't like the way Wade looked at him afterward.— Zack Cox (@ZackCoxNESN) March 25, 2015
UPDATE: Wade to miss tonight's game:
Wade fell on his left knee in last night’s game and it continued to swell overnight. The team training staff has ruled Dwyane out.— Miami HEAT (@MiamiHEAT) March 25, 2015
With Thomas' return, the C's sent James Young back to the D-League.
