New Orleans Pelicans PG Isaiah Thomas will not be brought back immediately upon the expiration of his 10-day contract.
Thomas averaged 7.7 points across 16 minutes during the three games he played during his 10-day contract with the Pelicans. New Orleans could still opt to bring Thomas back on another 10-day contract or rest of year deal but it appears the team will explore other available players on waivers after injuries to two members of their frontcourt in Josh Hart (thumb) and Nickeil Alexander-Walker (high ankle sprain) occurred recently. Thomas will remain on waivers until further notice with the potential to return to the Pelicans in two weeks.
The New Orleans Pelicans have signed veteran free agent guard Isaiah Thomas to a 10-day contract.
Thomas gets another opportunity to prove himself after failing to do so the last handful of years with the Cavaliers, Lakers, Nuggets and Wizards. The Pelicans roster is banged up with Lonzo Ball, Zion Williamson, Brandon Ingram and Josh Hart all sidelined so Thomas could see immediate playing time to prove himself on this 10-day contract.
Isaiah Thomas who was acquired by the Clippers on Thursday as part of a three-team trade, will not be retained by the team.
Thomas, who was recently acquired by the Clipper via trade, will be released by the team. He is averaging 12.2 points, 1.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.0 triples across 40 games this season. The 31-year old guard will look to latch onto another team. Fantasy owners can release the veteran guard in standard league formats.
Isaiah Thomas produced 18 points (6-14 FG, 4-10 3PT, 2-2 FT) six rebounds and one assist across 22 minutes in Thursday's 121-107 win over the Hornets.
Thomas has now scored double figures in five consecutive games, and pulled down a season-high six boards in Thursday's win. He has also knocked down at least three triples in four of his last five contests. Thomas mainly contributes in scoring, threes and assists. He is averaging 12.3 points, 1.7 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.0 triples across 38 games this year. His role will likely decrease as the Wizards are in the midst of a non-contending season. Thomas can be used as a streamer, and should be owned in all league formats. The Wizards next scheduled game is Saturday against the Nets.
Isaiah Thomas produced 13 points (5-12 FG, 3-7 3PT), four assists, three rebounds and one block across 22 minutes in Thursday's 124-112 win over the Cavaliers.
Thomas has now scored double figures in back-to-back games. He is having a solid season as the Wizards starting point guard, averaging 12.1 points, 1.5 rebounds, 3.9 assists and 1.9 triples across 35 games. Thomas can be used as a streamer and is worth holding onto in standard leagues. The Wizards next scheduled game is Sunday, away against the Hawks.
