Boston Celtics coach Brad Stevens said all indications are that All-Star point guard Isaiah Thomas will not require surgery on the injured hip that ended Thomas’ season in the Eastern Conference finals.

The Celtics shut down Thomas at halftime of Game 2 against the Cleveland Cavaliers in late May after he aggravated a hip ailment that had lingered since late in the regular season. While the team is waiting for a new batch of imaging tests to confirm that no surgery is necessary, Stevens offered an encouraging outlook after spending part of Sunday with Thomas when the Celtics pitched free agent Gordon Hayward in Boston.
