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.
Sources: Clippers Prepared to Offer Tobias Harris, 12th or 13th Pick for Kawhi Leonard
It’s also unclear if the Spurs would be willing to trade [Kawhi] Leonard to the Lakers or any other team. If they are, other teams might have more significant assets to offer, especially given that the Lakers do not have a lottery pick this year. They will select 25th in next week’s draft, a pick they got in a trade with Cleveland.
The Clippers have more to offer than the Lakers. They would be willing to create a package with forward Tobias Harris and the 12th or 13th pick in this year’s draft, according to a source not authorized to speak publicly.
