Cavs assign Thomas (hip) to G League affiliate

Because the Cavs do not run their practices with a full five-on-five practice, the only way to get Thomas those kinds of practice reps is to get him on the practice court with the team's G League affiliate, the Canton Charge.

Thomas is on assignment in order to officially participate in the Charge full-team practice, slated for Thursday. And also a great argument for teams to have their own G League teams. But first, he needs to be able to get caught up to speed after recovering from his hip injury with some practice. A 2-time All-Star, the 5-foot-9 Thomas led the Eastern Conference in scoring with 28.9 points per game in 2016-17, earning second-team All-NBA honors.

The 28-year-old Thomas has sat out each of the Cavaliers' games so far this season after being acquired in the off-season as part of the compensation Cleveland received in the blockbuster trade that sent Kyrie Irving to the Boston Celtics. Zizic, who has appeared in 11 games with the Cavaliers, is averaging 15.8 points and 8.5 rebounds in 23.5 minutes in four contests versus the Charge. In fact, some have said Thomas could make his debut during Cleveland's upcoming West Coast road swing, but that remains to be seen.
