Isaiah Thomas will miss the Los Angeles Lakers’ next two games due to a sore right hip.
The team confirmed that Thomas will not play at Memphis on Saturday and Detroit on Monday.
Thomas has averaged 15.6 points and 5.0 assists since being traded by Cleveland to the Lakers on the trade deadline. The veteran point guard has played in a total of 32 games this season for the Lakers and Cavaliers after rehabbing a hip injury suffered last season.
Thomas was shut down after two games in the Eastern Conference finals due to a right femoral-acetabular impingement with labral tear.

Ty Lue has agreed to a five-year deal to become the next head coach of the LA Clippers, sources told ESPN on Thursday.
The Clippers and Lue’s representative in the contract talks, Andy Miller, completed negotiations on a deal Thursday afternoon, sources said.
The Clippers’ search landed on Lue based upon a confidence that his championship pedigree and playoff successes as a head coach in Cleveland, as well as his strong ability to communicate with players, will resonate within a franchise that underachieved in the 2019-2020 season.
