The Cleveland Cavaliers are 1-1 in 2018, but their loss came against the Boston Celtics on the second night of a back-to-back. Overall, they look great and it seems that they are finally ready to bounce back and make a big push towards the playoffs and another championship. At the moment, the Cavaliers have a 25-13 record, which is good enough for the third-best record in the Eastern Conference.

The biggest story for the Cavaliers was the return of isaiah thomas. After missing first few months of the season, Thomas finally made a comeback in the first game of this year.

The point guard was amazing as he scored 17 points in only 19 minutes off the bench. However, the Cavaliers will get even better as it seems that Derrick Rose is ready for his comeback too.

Cleveland getting healthy

Isaiah Thomas made his long-awaited return a few days ago against the Portland Trail Blazers, and he is now ready to become a starter. The point guard will make his first start with the Cavaliers on Saturday against the Orlando Magic. Even though Thomas will be in the starting lineup, he will most likely be on a minute restriction as the team cannot allow him to get injured again.

“I played all right the first game … trust me, I’m on them about playing a little more because for the most part I feel fine,” Thomas said, referring to his debut in a Cavaliers jersey.

Apparently, the superstar point guard is at 80 percent physically, so it will take a bit more time for him to become a regular starter and play 30 or more minutes per game.

Tyronn Lue said that Thomas would not be playing in back-to-back games on the upcoming 11-day road trip. However, there is no doubt that Thomas is close to making a full recovery.

With Thomas back, the Cavaliers won't have problems at the point guard position, especially considering that Derrick Rose might return as well.

Derrick Rose's return

Derrick Rose might return during the upcoming trip, according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. Rose hasn't played in a game since early November, but he might finally get a chance to come back and help his team during the five-game road trip.

Coach Lue says that Rose will split time with Dwyane Wade when he comes back.

Rose's health situation is not yet 100 percent clear. Considering how prone to injuries he is, it wouldn't be surprising if the Cavaliers chose to sideline him for a few games. After all, there is a chance that he will require a surgery, but the Cavaliers are hoping that it won't come to that.
