Upon being asked about his impressions of the play two weeks after the fact, Iasiah Thomas did not take issue with Wade’s aggressive defense. He attempted to make a play on the ball and caught Thomas at a bad angle. Wade’s actions after the play did catch the ire of Thomas. "It is what it is,” Thomas said of the foul. The only thing I didn't like was how he looked at me after. You can't control that. He tried to block the shot, but the only thing I thought about when I watched the film was how he looked at me after." Boston Globe

Asked about the on-court dynamic between the two during their 46 games as a backcourt tandem, Thomas said, “It was nice. When we did play together, it worked. He’s a hell of a player.” “I talked with Isaiah. He’s happy here. He was a great teammate. We had a good relationship,” added Dragic, who then offered a glowing scouting report on Thomas, who returned from injury on Wednesday. “He can score in bunches. He’s an offensive-minded player. If he’s hot, he can score 30 points easy. He has that quality to put his team on his shoulders, especially on offense.” WEEI.com

Sean Grande: Isaiah Thomas will return for the Celtics tonight. No guarantee on how many minutes Thomas will play in his return. All based on feel. But he will enter the game in his regular spot. His 214 points are the most ever scored by a Celtic in his first ten games. Twitter @SeanGrandePBP

To nobody's surprise, Isaiah Thomas will not play in tonight's game against the Magic. He will not travel to Indiana tomorrow, either, but the hope is that he'll be ready for Monday's game against the Sixers. Brad Stevens told reporters before Friday's game that he's still got plenty of soreness. "Not going to travel with us," Stevens said of Thomas. "I'd say again I think the date that we've been shooting for is Monday but all he did today was jog a little bit on the treadmill. So he's still very sore." CSNNE.com

Thomas’ back will need time to recover, and while the injury isn’t too severe, it’s certainly proved painful. “The doctors said they’ve never really seen a bruise like that in that area," Thomas said. "I was scared it was something, because I’ve never felt that pain before. When I watched the video, my body just freezes up.” NBA.com

Even without Thomas, who’s become a sparkplug for the Celtics since his acquisition, the C’s earned a thrilling win at TD Garden Wednesday night. Thomas was rooting his team on from a local hotel – he still hasn’t found a permanent home since the trade-deadline deal that brought him to Boston. “My team showed a lot of heart last night. I was watching the whole game. I was excited,” Thomas said. “Hopefully I can get back as soon as possible.” NBA.com
