PG Isaiah Thomas, age 28, injured his hip on May 19th, 2017 in the Eastern Conference Finals in game 2 vs the Cleveland Cavaliers. He missed the rest of the 2017 NBA Playoffs where the Boston Celtics got eliminated in 5 games to the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was traded on August 23rd of 2017 to the Cleveland Cavaliers along with SF Jae Crowder, C Ante Zizic, and a Brooklyn Nets first round pick that Boston had acquired for PG Kyrie Irving. If he doesn’t clear his physical with the Cavaliers, than the trade will be voided, but if not voided, Isaiah Thomas might miss a significant amount of time due to this injury.
Sources on ESPN: Cleveland, Boston planning call today to discuss uncertain status of blockbuster trade. https://t.co/0LzkkWNltR

Source told me this week a renegotiation attempt would be a likely option before anything was rescinded if it reached that point. https://t.co/yy0Q2CWUEI

The fact that neither IT nor Kyrie have said a word about the trade, and LeBron hasn't welcomed IT publicly, is weird
