    Thomas injured the hip in March and aggravated it in Game 6 of the East semifinals against Washington. Team doctor Brian McKeon says if he continues playing, he could have "more significant long-term damage to his hip."

    Thomas did not travel with the team to Cleveland for Sunday's third game of the best-of-seven series. The Cavaliers lead the top-seeded Celtics 2-0.
