Thompson hasn’t played since Nov. 1 and Thomas hasn’t played at all this season, but now it appears that both are reaching full health and might see the Cavaliers roster soon.
Thomas has been out since he played for the Celtics last postseason, a torn labrum in his right hip taking him off the floor for a long stretch. The Cavs put in timetable in of mid-December for the point guard, so it’s likely we see him sooner rather than later here, but according to CantonRep.com the team wants to see how he recovers from contact during practice before he’ll be officially cleared to play.
Both Thompson and Thomas were playing 4-on-4 at Cavaliers practice on Wednesday, a welcome sight for anyone who wants to see Cleveland back at full strength before Christmas Day and the start of the long haul in the NBA’s schedule. And hopes are high that Thompson will be back in a Cavs uniform soon as well.
