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 ESPN.com’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.”
