It looks like Isaiah Thomas won't be playing in the Cleveland Cavaliers' highly anticipated marquee matchup against the Golden State Warriors on Christmas Day.

Former Boston Celtics star Isaiah Thomas is inching closer to his return for the Cleveland Cavaliers and will scrimmage with their G-League affiliate the Canton Charge soon, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. Thomas has yet to practice with the Cavs in a full-court, 5-on-5 setting, but McMenamin said that's because the Cavs rarely practice. The Cavs first game of 2018 comes on January 2, and it seems Thomas is targeting that game for his season debut.

Thomas has yet to play in a game for the Cavaliers after the blockbuster trade that sent him to Cleveland and Kyrie Irving to the Celtics.

A team source told ESPN that the final determination for when Thomas would play would be a joint decision agreed upon by Thomas, the Cavs' front office, and the Cavs' medical staff.

"Following the Warriors game, the Cavs play the Sacramento Kings on December 27, and then they have a one-day retreat planned in Napa, California, after that contest, which one source close to Thomas described as a "nice environment" for the two-time All-Star to "get ready" to play his first game".

The Cavaliers play the Celtics on January 3, and it has been reported that Thomas wants to be ready to face his old team. The two-time All-Star was a member of the All-NBA Second Team in 2016-17 behind a career-high 28.9 points per game, and his presence would take some of the playmaking responsibility off LeBron James' shoulders as the season progresses.
