The chaotic trade between the Cavs and the Celtics is finally over and now it's time to discuss the franchise's plans for their newly acquired players. But for the Cleveland #Cavaliers, #isaiah thomas' hip injury is something they are not ready to discuss. According to the Christian Post, Cavs GM Koby #Altman during the introduction of IT, Jae Crowder, and Ante Zizic refused to answer the question about Thomas' injury.

Addressing reporters during the event, Altman said: "To be fair to Isaiah, we're not going to address any specifics on his hip injury." The issue on the former Celtics' star's hip injury took a toll on the blockbuster trade spreading speculations that it may not push through at all.

Altman further added that they will not be releasing a timetable for Isaiah Thomas [VIDEO]. Apparently, he did not want the press conference to be a discussion about Thomas' injury, instead, a celebration that the three players have been acquired.

Meanwhile, coach Tyron Lue confirmed that IT will not play in the early part of the upcoming season. Isaiah, on the other hand, is confident he will be back on the court better than ever. His hip injury is apparently mild for him to be able to be back on the court soon. He also said that no doctor has told him that his injury is a career ending one.

The positivity continues as Thomas was recently quoted saying "When it comes to basketball, there's no pressure. Worked too hard to even think about pressure. So when that time comes and I'm able to be on the court and play at the level I know I can play at, that will take care of everything else."

In a heartfelt article on The Player's Tribune, IT detailed the emotions he felt and how much it hurt to have him traded. He always wanted to be a Celtics, he loved Boston (he was in love with Boston), and he wanted to retire as a Celtics. Apparently, that did not happen and now, he is moving on with his new team, the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Celtics GM Danny Ainge said, trading IT is the hardest thing he ever had to do but he also believes that it is the best for the team. Isaiah knew that Ainge acted on a purely business manner and he can't blame him. Basketball is business and he did what he had to do. But the decision came at a time when he least expected it. IT was traded for Kyrie Irving after the latter requested for a trade in late June.
