Just when you thought that Cleveland's offseason couldn't get crazier, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that isaiah thomas' physical raised red flags.

The Boston Celtics just had a blockbuster trade that sent Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a future first-round pick from Brooklyn to Cleveland in exchange for the four-time All-Star Kyrie Irving.

But just after a few days, the trade might be in jeopardy because of Thomas' injury.

Isaiah Thomas failed his physical

A hip injury ended Isaiah Thomas' spectacular 2016-2017 NBA season. Thomas was forced out in the Eastern Conference Finals in May against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Boston Celtics expected Thomas to delay his start to the 2017-2018 NBA season has been playing with a torn labrum; a hip labral tear involves the ring of cartilage (labrum) that follows the outside rim of the socket of your hip joint.

Thomas was examined by the Cavaliers' Medical Staff and also visited a famous hip specialist at the Cleveland Clinic.

One source even said that "It is a very sensitive situation." It was also admitted by Celtics' General Manager Danny Ainge that the injury played some part in the Celtics' decision to trade Thomas.

What could happen?

Due to the physical test results, the Cleveland Cavaliers are seeking further compensation for the Boston Celtics. The Cavaliers could also dismiss the trade if the Boston Celtics choose not to send additional assets to Cleveland.

The Boston Celtics has an abundance of draft picks that would help them finalize the trade; this includes three possible first round picks from the Los Angeles Lakers (2018 which could be a top-five pick), the Los Angeles Clippers (2019), and the Memphis Grizzlies (2019).

Kyrie Irving, whose trade request to the Cavaliers' front office led to the blockbuster deal, is scheduled to take his physical for the Celtics on Saturday in Boston.

What could be the compensation that the Cleveland Cavaliers are looking for? If they are looking to land Jayson Tatum, it would be almost impossible to make this trade. But if they are just looking to add more draft picks than the Boston Celtics is more likely to listen.

If the Cavaliers are looking at this trade as a loss and veto this trade, it would be disastrous for their organization.

Having back an uninspired Kyrie Irving, they would lose all leverage they have if they choose to trade Irving during the 2017-2018 NBA season. Also, losing the 2018 unprotected Brooklyn Nets pick would even be a greater loss to them.
