BOSTON (AP) – The Celtics say point guard Isaiah Thomas is sitting out the second half of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals against Cleveland because of a right hip strain.
Thomas played 18 minutes in the first half Friday night, but had a noticeable limp late in the half. It is unclear when he sustained the injury.
The All-Star had just two points and six assists in the opening 24 minutes as Cleveland took a 72-31 lead.
