Isaiah Thomas (thumb) to miss 6-8 weeks following surgery

Isaiah Thomas underwent successful thumb surgery Wednesday and will miss 6-8 weeks, Washington Wizards official Twitter account reports.

Fantasy Impact

The official diagnosis is a “rupture of the radial collateral ligament of his left thumb.” The 6-8 week timeframe means Thomas will miss all of Wizards’ training camp, with recovery likely spilling over into the regular season, which begins October 22. Ish Smith makes a sneaky late-round selection in fantasy drafts, as he won’t have to compete with Thomas for minutes at point guard to open the season. Smith could be an even bigger value if Thomas’ injury lingers.

Isaiah Thomas departs for the Wizards

PG Isaiah Thomas is headed to the Washington Wizards on a one-year deal. Thomas spent last season on the Nuggets but appeared in only 12 games.

Fantasy Impact

The Wizards are signing the diminutive PG on a one-year prove-it deal as a response to losing Tomas Satoransky to the Chicago Bulls. Thomas will likely get some spot starts alongside Bradley Beal and hold down the fort until the injured John Wall returns. However, temper expectations for him, as he may never achieve the 28.9 PPG that he scored in that magical 2016-2017 season with Boston. Regardless, he should get plenty of opportunities to show that he can still play at the highest level.

Isaiah Thomas to be removed from the rotation in Denver

Isaiah Thomas will be removed from the rotation, per coach Mike Malone.

Fantasy Impact

Malone said it's just for the time being but Thomas hasn't been great since debuting for his new team. Jamal Murray and Monte Morris will see more opportunities during this stretch.

Isaiah Thomas has poor shooting night

Isaiah Thomas came off the bench on Monday against the Spurs and finished with seven points, two assists, two rebounds, and one steal in 16 minutes. Thomas went 3-for-11 from the field and 1-for-5 from three.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas has struggled from the field over his last five games as he's only shooting 34% from the field overall and 16.7% from three. He's not shooting the ball well which means he shouldn't be started at the moment in any leagues.

Isaiah Thomas scores four in loss

Isaiah Thomas didn't play much on Thursday night as the Nuggets were relying a lot on their starting lineup to claw them back into the game. Thomas finished with four points and one rebound in 11 minutes. He went 2-for-6 from the floor and 0-for-2 from three.

Fantasy Impact

Thomas is a great scorer but when Denver goes down big, they really can't rely on him as he doesn't play much defense. Don't expect the Nuggets to trail a lot in games so Thomas will play north of 20 minutes a game as he gets into game shape in a couple of weeks.
