Traded from the Celtics to the Cavaliers in one of the most shocking deals in National Basketball Association history, Isaiah Thomas would love nothing more than to burn down the championship aspirations that Celtics president Danny Ainge built this past summer.

Injured Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas is getting closer to his return, with 5-on-5 practices and a likely G League stint in his immediate future.

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.

However, with a Christmas Day showdown with the Golden State Warriors coming up, McMenamin reports that the Cavaliers have a session scheduled for Christmas Eve that IT is expected to take part in. McMenamin noted that a source said that Thomas won't play at all in any games before Christmas.

Cleveland has managed to keep pace out East with a 23-9 record, but is eager for Thomas' return to ease the load carried by superstar forward LeBron James.

Thomas has yet to practice in a 5-on-5 full-court set up by the Cavs, partly because the league's oldest team does not practice as often as other teams do.

Thomas has been out all season as he recovers from a hip injury.

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.

"I don't know where that came from, but I hope so", Tyronn Lue said Sunday night of the report.

After a rocky start, the Wine and Gold have reeled off 18 wins from their last 19 games and are rolling at the moment.
