Celtics PG Isaiah Thomas misses 2nd half of Game 2 with hip strain
BOSTON – Boston Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas, who did not make a field goal in the first half, missed the second half of the Eastern Conference Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers due to a right hip strain, according to the team.
Thomas missed all six of his field goal attempts and had two points in 17 minutes.
With Boston down 41 at halftime, Thomas did not return to the floor and was ruled out by the Celtics.
Thomas could be seen limping a bit late in the first half.
Celtics coach Brad Stevens said after Boston’s Game 7 win over the Washington Wizards on Monday that Thomas was, “dealing with more stuff, physically,” but didn’t elaborate. Asked about being dinged up, Thomas said, “I’m hurting, but it’s the playoffs so there are no excuses.”
