On Tuesday, Dave McMenamin of reported Thomas is likely to lace it up for five-on-five practices in the "immediate future". Thomas has yet to practice with the Cavs in a full-court, 5-on-5 setting, but McMenamin said that's because the Cavs rarely practice. Thomas is then expected to play a scrimmage with the Charge, either in Cleveland or in Canton, at some point this week.

The Cavaliers were initially targeting a mid-December return for the All-Star guard, but Shams Charania of The Vertical has reported that they're now looking to bring him back in the first week of January.

And it's in that first week of January, Wednesday the 3rd to be exact, that Thomas and the Cavaliers will come to TD Garden for a primetime showdown with the Celtics.

Thomas has been out all season as he recovers from a hip injury.

Despite the misunderstanding, the two started to brawl and that led to the announcement of a United States Championship defense. They deserve an enormous amount of credit for that, but they are strictly booked and treated like a comedy team.

Since acquiring the 28-year-old in a trade with the Boston Celtics that sent Kyrie Irving in the opposite direction, the Cavs have been taking a cautious approach with him in an effort to get him back to 100% for the crucial stages of the season. "I hope it's accurate".

All signs seems to be pointing to Thomas being on the floor for his return to the Garden if all goes well over the next two weeks in what will be perhaps the most anticipated game in the National Basketball Association this season.

When asked if he was consulted on Thomas' return timeline, Lue said, "That's not my job".

The final decision on when Thomas will return will be agreed upon by Thomas, Cleveland's front office and their medical staff.
