While I'm sure the fall is still a (literal) pain in Isaiah Thomas' backside, it appears that it wasn't that serious an injury that would cause him to miss much (if any) time.
The point guard is considered a game-time decision for Wednesday night's meeting with the Memphis Grizzlies. After a hard fall late in the fourth quarter of Monday night's win against Miami (video below), he told reporters he planned to go for X-rays, adding, "I've never fell that hard before." If the 5-foot-9 guard did get X-rays, though, they came back negative.
So we can breathe a little easier now.
Further evaluation has confirmed initial diagnosis of a bruised lower back/left elbow for Isaiah Thomas. He is a game-time decision for Wed.— Boston Celtics (@celtics) March 10, 2015
