Thomas was traded to Cleveland this offseason in a blockbuster move which sent Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics in exchange for Thomas, Jae Crowder, rookie big man Ante Zizic, and the Brooklyn Nets 2018 first-round pick.

The All-Star point guard has been sidelined this entire season because of a right hip injury, which he suffered in last season's playoffs, resulting in him missing the final stretch of Boston's postseason run.

His status for Wednesday's game remains unclear at this time, but he hasn't been ruled out for the Cavaliers home game against the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday. He can't get frustrated thinking it's going to happen overnight.

While sharing the news with reporters early Tuesday afternoon, a Celtics spokesman said he did not know why Thomas chose to make the request. They know what they gave up. "I just didn't want to rehash that moment, obviously". Teammates expressed their joy on social media, sharing messages of encouragement or retweets of the Lue's announcement.Given the Cavs have lost three straight games and four of five, it's clear Thomas will be asked to provide an offensive spark. But they've got to be patient and stay the course. "But I can wait until February". The guard is ready to finally make his long-awaited Cavaliers debut, and Cavs fans will be happy to hear that his return is just around the corner [VIDEO]. After six months away from the game, he's still searching for his feel for the game.

"My hip is better but I have no rhythm", Thomas said. The Cavaliers have been winning, and keeping pace at the top of the Eastern Conference, with a hotchpotch of veterans playing the point including Jose Calderon, Derrick Rose and the veteran Dwyane Wade, who is much more of a shooting guard anyway. CJ McCollum scored 32 points as Portland halted its two-game slide.
