The Washington Wizards have announced in a press release that guard Isaiah Thomas will miss six-to-eight weeks recovering from surgery to repair a ruptured ligament in his left thumb.
The 30-year-old guard injured his radial collateral ligament on Monday and could be out of action until a month into the regular season based on the provided timeline.
The 2019-20 campaign had marked somewhat of a bounce back season for Thomas after a quiet few years bouncing between the Cavaliers, Lakers and Nuggets.
Thomas inked a veteran’s minimum deal on an injury-depleted Wizards team just two years removed from a season in which he averaged 28.9 points per game.
Thomas’ surgery was performed by Dr. Curtis Henn at MedStar.
