LeBron strategizing Isaiah Thomas' return with video game

  • Thomas to make debut with Cavs on Tuesday against Portland

As both players are making progress, it will be interesting to see how Lue manages minutes once the team is relatively healthy since they have improved their depth in hopes of making a fourth consecutive NBA Finals appearance.

Thomas, who was traded to Cleveland from the Celtics in the deal that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston, has not played at all this season due to a hip injury he suffered in March. "And whether or not he plays, it's going to be nothing but love for him from Boston". But a minutes restriction (he'll come off the bench and reportedly only play 8-12 minutes on Tuesday) will keep him out of Cleveland's first trip to Boston. It's been a frustrating and tough process but at the same time you got to trust it.

The Washington product set a career-high with 28.9 points per game last season while shooting 37.9 percent from three-point range and earning All-NBA Second Team honors. He can't get frustrated thinking it's going to happen overnight. Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue watched the scrimmage and said Thomas "looked good" and absorbed some. Lue will limit Thomas's minutes against a Trail Blazers team that may be without its own star point guard in Damian Lillard, through injury.

Season's worst fog at IGI, over 200 flights hit
The day's average air quality index (AQI) was at 400, classified as "very poor" by the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB). Dense fog engulfed the national capital region on New Year on Monday with the visibility dropping to zero.

While sharing the news with reporters early Tuesday afternoon, a Celtics spokesman said he did not know why Thomas chose to make the request. They knew what they got.

Isaiah Thomas has been patiently waiting. "I have no feel for the game right now". The Cavaliers have been winning, and keeping pace at the top of the Eastern Conference, with a hotchpotch of veterans playing the point including Jose Calderon, Derrick Rose and the veteran Dwyane Wade, who is much more of a shooting guard anyway. However, Thomas is nearing a return to the court to the point where there is now an official projection of when he will suit up for the first time.
