Celtics fans held their breath last night when Isaiah Thomas committed an intentional foul and jogged with a pronounced limp into the tunnel. Already down thirty in the fourth quarter, the sight of the team's best player hobbling off the court was not a welcome one. Thankfully, initial reports of a mild ankle strain have been confirmed today and it looks like Thomas should be all systems go for tomorrow night's game.
Brad Stevens on Isaiah Thomas: “He feels good. All signs point to him being ready to go tomorrow."— Chris Forsberg (@ESPNForsberg) April 27, 2016
Stevens on IT's ankle: "Every update I've gotten is positive." Sounds like he'll be fine for Game 6, as expected.— Jay King (@ByJayKing) April 27, 2016
With the season on the line tomorrow night, Isaiah Thomas and the chip that resides on his shoulder should be ready to rock and roll.
Tip-off tomorrow at 8PM.
