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 aggravated an existing hip injury in last season's playoffs and has been recovering from it since being dealt to Cleveland in the offseason trade that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston.

On Tuesday, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reported Thomas is likely to lace it up for five-on-five practices in the "immediate future".

Thomas has yet to practice in a 5-on-5 full-court set up by the Cavs, partly because the league's oldest team does not practice as often as other teams do. This report indicates that a late-December return is on the table, while Shams Charania of The Vertical reported on Sunday that Thomas would be back for the first week of the January. McMenamin noted that a source said that Thomas won't play at all in any games before Christmas. Part of the reason for that is Cleveland, a veteran-laden team that has reeled off 18 victories in its past 19 games, rarely practices.

Dreaming Of A White Christmas? Here Are The Odds
The snow line dips lower in elevation, as the major coastal cities in OR and Washington will remain above freezing during the day. Friday will rebound a bit with highs near freezing but another push of cold air, even colder this time, arrives for the weekend.

If all goes well, there's a likelihood, slim or not, that Isaiah Thomas will finally be able to make his Cavs debut in any of Cleveland's last three games of the year.

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

ESPN reports that a final determination for Thomas' return would be a joint decision between Thomas, the front office and the medical staff.

In the months since he joined the Cavs, Thomas has repeatedly referenced his motivation to get vengeance against Boston.
