Henry Thomas Rumors
Shandel Richardson: Heat forward Udonis Haslem wasn’t at practice today because he attended the funeral of Henry Thomas. Haslem is expected back for Friday’s game in Philly.
Dwyane Wade is back with the Cavaliers after missing the last two games to mourn the death of his agent and close friend Henry Thomas. But the aging star is also dealing with a previously undisclosed left shoulder issue that probably won’t keep him out of tonight’s game against the Detroit Pistons, but could impact his availability for Wednesday’s game against Miami.
Thomas represented Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh at the time. And when Thomas and Wade hosted a surprise second meeting with the Bulls on July 2, TV trucks descended and hysteria reigned. “Hank was the calmest guy in the room,” Wade said, smiling, in a casual conversation with the Tribune at a party Wade hosted in October 2016 that Thomas attended. That trait, not to mention his genuine decency in a cutthroat business, is what Thomas was known for over a 30-year career as an agent representing some of the NBA’s biggest names.
