Celtics Are Devastated About What Just Happened To Isaiah Thomas



In the midst of a blowout loss in Game 2 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, Isaiah Thomas suffered a high injury. It had forced him to miss the remainder of the contest. His status for the rest of the playoffs was seemingly placed up in the air. According to the Celtics, Thomas has been declared out for the rest of the postseason.

The Boston Celtics today announced that Isaiah Thomas will miss the remainder of this year’s postseason following re-aggravation of a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear during Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Cleveland. Thomas initially injured the hip during the third quarter of the Celtics’ March 15 game against Minnesota, forcing him to miss the next two regular season contests. The injury was further aggravated during Game 6 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals at Washington on May 12.

This is a huge gut shot for the Celtics losing their primary offensive weapon. He is the scoring punch that gave his team a puncher’s chance in the series against the Cavaliers. His departure now puts Boston behind the 8-ball with the next two games of the series at Cleveland down 2-0.

The Cavaliers have absolutely dominated the Celtics through the first two games. There has been no doubt in either contest concerning the outcome. With him out of the mix, there is no reason to believe that Cleveland won’t get a third consecutive sweep in the playoffs to reach a third straight NBA Finals.
