• Isaiah Thomas
    PG, Los Angeles Lakers

    Isaiah Thomas was limited to just 32 games this season because of persistent hip issues, eventually settling on surgery in late March.

    This was one of the more nightmarish campaigns imaginable, with Thomas getting unceremoniously shipped away by the Celtics to Cleveland, only for his hip problems to be more severe than initially imagined. He was forced to shake off the rust on the fly with the floundering Cavs playing to win at all costs and was dumped to the Lakers at the deadline in a stunner. Thomas' stock plummeted this season and he'll head into free agency with some medical red flags. He also shot a career-worst .373 from the field this season and committed a career-high 3.0 turnovers per game despite averaging 6.9 fewer minutes than last season. Anything that could go wrong, did, though Thomas did have some solid middle-round moments with the Lakers. All told, he was a top-165 8-cat performer but a lowly top-270 option in 9-cat. Putting a chip on IT's shoulder has only helped him in the past, so we'll see how things shake out for him going forward.
