The Nuggets are hopeful that guard Isaiah Thomas (hip) will be able to make his return prior to mid-February’s All Star Break.
This is the first update we’ve seen in a long time for IT3, so it looks like he may actually be back this year. It’s anyone’s guess how he’ll play after being hurt all year and how he’ll fit in the backcourt with Jamal Murray and Monte Morris. There’s no guarantee Thomas will be a consistently productive player with so much depth in Denver but if you have an open IR spot, it can’t hurt to stash him.
