There are no words to describe what Isaiah Thomas must be going through tonight. On Saturday morning, his sister, Chyna, passed away at the age of 22 in a car accident. One day later, it sounds like Thomas plans on playing in the Celtics’ first game of the 2017 postseason.
TNT’s Dennis Scott reported that Thomas’ workload tonight will be dependent on what he thinks is best. As Scott said, “It may be one minute, it may be 40 minutes, it’s totally up to him.”
The people of Boston are coming together and rallying around their star in his time of need. Prior to warm-ups for Sunday’s game, Thomas led the team out of the tunnel, which led to a massive ovation from the Celtics faithful.
