They saw Isaiah Thomas put together one of the most remarkable offensive seasons in the history of the National Basketball Association, while going on the first real playoff run in the Brad Stevens era. He finally has been cleared to play in a game.

Thomas has never played a game in a Cleveland uniform and was part of the trade during the offseason that send Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics.

Boston's top free agent acquisition last summer, Hayward went down in a heap in the first quarter of the first game and is expected to be lost for the season. The Cavs are 24-12 this season.

Thomas is set to debut on Tuesday night in Cleveland against the Blazers, and will be on a strict minutes restriction. Getting in shape. Timing.

"I didn't want to watch the injury or what happened after it", the Celtics coach said on Tuesday, a day before his team was to play the Cavaliers for the first time since Gordon Hayward broke his leg in the season opener.

Having to find his footing in limited minutes, with the emotional burden of playing against the team that shipped him out of town, in front of a fan base he gave his heart to would be asking to much of Thomas.

This confluence of factors makes the moon appear bigger and brighter in the night sky than commonly seen. The eclipse will start at 5:51 a.m. and will not be a full eclipse when the moon sets just after 7 a.m.

Even though Thomas will be sidelined against the Celtics, we will probably see him play in at least 10 games this month.

"It won't be that tough 'cause I know where I am right now".

In any case, there are all kinds of things to get excited about over this previous year, that has brought them to this point right now.

Isaiah Thomas has been patiently waiting. It would be highly unlikely he'd be peak Isaiah Thomas in his first game back from injury.

"With the games coming, it's got to give me an opportunity to get my rhythm back, get my feel back, and it might take some time, but at the same time, the progress that I've made is all good and positive progress, and I'm excited about the opportunity to be able to get out there and compete". Iman Shumpert, another player who was filling point guard minutes for Cleveland, has also been out.
