Isaiah Thomas Likely Won’t Need Surgery for Hip Injury, Says Brad Stevens

Boston Celtics head coach Brad Stevens offered an update on injured point guard Isaiah Thomas, telling reporters the two-time All-Star shouldn’t require surgery to address the hip injury that knocked him out of the 2017 NBA playoffs.

He’s got a follow-up with his doctor that he’s been working closely with either next week or 10 days out from now and then [they will] determine next step,” Stevens said Monday, per’s Chris Forsberg. “But every indication is he feels good and he’ll be ready to go. Everybody that I have talked to said it looked unlikely that they would need to [perform surgery]. But I don’t want to speak in absolutes. I’m not a doctor, just a coach.”
