Cavaliers provide few answers on Thomas' injured hip

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.

General manager Koby Altman said he didn't want to make the press conference about Thomas' hip, so that Lue quote certainly would've changed that.

"As owners of Brooklyn's No. 1 pick, which could be a top-five pick in next year's draft, Cleveland has fielded numerous calls already about a potential trade".

While evasive on details, Altman, whose promotion to full-time GM was among the notable moves in a chaotic summer for the Cavs, did reveal that the rehab plan for Thomas does not include surgery.

And Venus, at 37, perhaps has never been more appreciated or revered as she has thrived through some personal trials of her own. Only two former Major champions remained in the draw, and Petra Kvitova and Williams were drawn to face each other.

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.

Thomas had not posted anything to his various social media accounts since August 22, the day the Celtics and Cavaliers first agreed to the swap that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston in exchange for Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a 2018 first-round draft pick (via Brooklyn).

Thomas will be the starting point guard for the Cavs next season, and he should benefit from playing alongside James. "I.T., everybody in Boston is grateful for I.T. and all that he's done".

In fact, the players that now constitute Boston's Big Three - Irving, Al Horford and Gordon Hayward - are all here in part because of Thomas' play (Irving) and ability to convince them (Horford and Hayward) to come to Boston and be part of something special.

When Tide running backs Bo Scarbrough and Damien Harris tried to run up the middle, there was practically nowhere for them to go. With the impressive victory Alabama is certain to maintain its hold at the No. 1 ranking, and it hosts Fresno State next week.

The 28-year old Thomas made his first ever All-NBA second team while scoring 28.9 points per contest in 76 games last season.

"I was able to whisper to my mom before she passed", Crowder said.

Before Crowder heads back to Atlanta to continue to console his grandmother, he is going house-hunting in Cleveland with the help of new teammate J.R. Smith.

"Tom Brady isn't sending a text like that to guys who played in Boston for only two and a half years - unless they did something very special". "I've been in situations before where things have been a little tough and we haven't had the best players, but we just kept fighting and worked for what we had".
