Report: Isaiah Thomas to Make Season Debut Tuesday

Isaiah Thomas will make his debut for the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday against the Portland Trail Blazers, Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said Monday.

The guard, who has been rehabbing from a hip injury, will come off the bench, will be on a minute restriction and will not play the next night against the Boston Celtics — his old team.

Thomas participated in a full-court scrimmage Friday against his Cavs teammates for the first time since the point guard was acquired in a trade from the Celtics for Kyrie Irving over the summer. Cleveland held another practice on New Year’s Day in order to scrimmage again as a final tune-up for the two-time All-Star.

A source told ESPN that Thomas would be held to 8-to-12 minutes in his debut.

Thomas was knocked out of last season’s Eastern Conference Finals with the injury, was shockingly traded in the offseason and has been steadily working his way back.
