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.
Isaiah Thomas produced 17 points (6-13 FG, 2-6 3PT, 3-4 FT), three assists, and one rebound across 23 minutes in the Wizards' 99-94 upset win over the Celtics on Monday.
This was a nice bounceback effort for Thomas, at least from a scoring perspective. While not offering much in terms of peripheral statistics, it was encouraging to see Thomas breakout of his shooting slump an knock down some shots. Unfortunately, Ish Smith is on a tear off the bench and has been rewarded with significant playing time. Except for in deeper leagues, fantasy owners should hope that Thomas regains some consistency and that Ish Smith cools-off before deploying Thomas with any confidence. Thomas and the Wizards will travel to Orlando to face the Magic on Wednesday.
Isaiah Thomas produced nine points (2-9 FG, 1-2 3PT, 4-4 FT) and two assists across 16 minutes in the Wizards' 128-114 win over the Nuggets on Saturday.
It was another pedestrian performance from the veteran point guard. Somewhat surprisingly, Thomas was not suspended by the NBA after being ejected from Friday night's game against Portland for a "hostile act" towards an official. Regardless, Ish Smith saw more than double the minutes that Thomas saw, with the former scoring a career-high 32 points off the bench. Thomas has been trending down for a few weeks now. Fantasy owners would be wise to hold him and hope that he reemerges with a larger share of the playing time at point guard in the near future. Thomas and the Wizards will host the Celtics on Monday night.
