#isaiah thomas is one of the newest members of the Cleveland Cavaliers roster. Joining the team by way of trade after superstar point guard Kyrie Irving demanded a trade from the Cavaliers and was then traded to the Boston Celtics for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and a first-round Brooklyn Nets draft pick. But an injury that has been bothering Thomas for the last few months was brought to the Cavs attention after the trade and could pose a significant risk to the success of Cleveland this season. The Cavs have completely transformed their roster after losing Uncle Drew, and now have their hands on Dwyane Wade [VIDEO] and #Derrick Rose.

On paper, they look very good heading into the season, but the injury to Isaiah will hold them from having a full roster until late December or January next year, quite possibly causing chemistry issues.

Isaiah Thomas is ready for the season to start

Isaiah Thomas has consistently expressed his impatience with the offseason and his desire for the 2017-18 season to start during this year's offseason. After feeling disrespected by the trade from the Boston Celtics, an organization he cherished, Isaiah has been getting as many shots up as possible and formed a strong bond with Cleveland teammates. Isaiah is looking to get revenge on his old team with huge performances against them and is looking to make the NBA Finals. Isaiah talked about the upcoming season:

“Soon enough I will be 100 percent and back dropping 30 points a night….

I’ve been around a great staff these last three or four weeks with the Cleveland Clinic and the staff here with the Cleveland Cavaliers. We’ve been hands-on six days a week – taking Sundays off – and we’re getting after it.”

IT is obviously very excited to get the season underway and show the Celtics what he’s worth. Although he won’t be in action to prove that on opening night when the Celtics travel to the Quicken Loans Arena to play the Cavaliers, he will get the chance next year when they face the Celtics again, that time being at the TD Garden where a lot of memories were made for Thomas.

It’s D-Rose’s chance

With the injury to Isaiah Thomas and the trade of Kyrie Irving, Derrick Rose has been put into a situation he didn’t expect when initially signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers on a minimum deal. Initially, Rose was expected to backup Kyrie in the point guard role. But then things happened, Kyrie was traded, and Isaiah Thomas became the Cavaliers new starting point guard. But due to the hip injury which will sideline Thomas for a few months, Derrick Rose has become the starting point guard for Cleveland to start the season. This is a great chance for Derrick to blossom playing alongside LeBron James [VIDEO], Kevin Love and possibly #Dwyane Wade in the starting lineup. We could see some great production from the 2011 NBA MVP, as he is eager to prove his worth this season.
