In case you missed it, in the 4th quarter Isaiah Thomas hurt his lower back. He went up for a layup, got bumped in mid-air by Dwyane Wade, and came down hard on his back.
After the game, the Celtics announced Thomas suffered a bruised lower back and bruised right elbow (his off arm). No final word was given on his availability for Wednesday's game against the Memphis Grizzlies. "I've never fell that hard before. And the pain," Thomas told reporters in Miami. "When I fell, I thought I was done. But I heard my teammates were just like, 'We need you. We need you. Get up. We need you.'"
Thomas did tough it out over the last few minutes but was playing in obvious pain. As a result, he'll be getting X-rays today.
