In the middle of a frenetic season, and without the benefit of a preseason, Thomas has to learn how to integrate himself into the Cavaliers' offense (and defense) next to LeBron James, a man used to doing everything in pretty much every position for this team.
Thomas, 28, played with the Celtics from 2015-2017, when he was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers in August. Additionally, Thomas will not play back-to-backs at this point in the season, meaning he will miss Cleveland's big matchup against his former team, the Celtics, on Wednesday, a game many speculated could have been the first time we saw Thomas back on the court. They still may have not reached their ultimate goal, but there have been moments that will never be forgotten by any players or fans and will go into the new year with one of the most exciting cores in the National Basketball Association. It's been a frustrating and tough process but at the same time you got to trust it. The Cavs went 24-12 without him, and they are ready to re-insert a point guard with similar skills to Irving into their lineup with the hope of reaching a fourth consecutive NBA Finals. He can't get frustrated thinking it's going to happen overnight. Lue also said it's possible that Thomas could get a tune-up with the Canton Charge, the Cavs' D-League affiliate, because of Cleveland's schedule.

Indianapolis tied the record for the coldest New Year's Eve and was one degree off the mark for New Year's Day . Thanks to a northerly breeze, it'll feel more like it's in the teens, even going into the afternoon hours.
Thomas' last game was May 19, Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Cavs.
Thomas will return from his hip injury on Tuesday night when the Cavaliers host the Portland Trail Blazers, but will sit out Wednesday night's visit to the TD Garden. But they've got to be patient and stay the course.
