Isaiah Thomas is the newest member of the Los Angeles Lakers after impressing during his 42-point G-League debut.
IT will have the opportunity to show what he has considering Russell Westbrook and Avery Bradley will both be in health safety protocol. The 32-year-old has dealt with hip issues throughout his career, playing in just 87 NBA games since the 2017-18 season.
However, Thomas said he’s feeling the healthiest he’s been in years. If that’s true, the Lakers could certainly use the help.
