His hip is spaghetti. He has always been able to shoot

Your hip is spaghetti, cclay.  I'm waiting on big Mo's opinion here before jumping to any conclusions.  He has more inside information from CLE than any of us.

Is he running yet?

I'm skeptical he's going to return early till we hear reports of him running up and down the court.

Heís doing full court workouts, is driving the ball, and is doing some full court individual defense.  Thatís against an assistant coach, rather than NBA players, but itís progress.

Sometimes I wonder exactly what happened with the firing of a long time Celtic medical staff. Nothing of substance was ever released to the public.

A case can be made that the reason IT never complained about his hip was to get through the 2016-17 season and playoffs relatively healthy, and without examination and x-raying of the hip. Then rest for the summer and begin his well-advertised petition for a Max contract this opening 2017-18 season, hoping for an early signing.

Naturally never letting the Celtics know about the severity of the hip. Not at least until he had a Max contract to rest his head on, then letting the chips fall where they may. IT never dreamed Danny would trade him, exposing the severity of his hip to the national media.

I wonder just why the doctors were both fired. Could it be they knew IT had a severe hip problem and failed to expose it to management at the behest of Thomas?   

Removing all the symbolism, and emotion, the Celtics are much better set for the future with the younger, and better defender Kyrie.

No disrespect to IT when I say this but there is going to be some serious gamesmanship from nba bigs when he comes back. They will be bodying him with some hard fouks when he goes to the rim. They will test out that hip.

I think everyone knew what IT was playing through, but tried to keep it under wraps, because you donít want your opponents to know your weaknesses.  It wouldnít remotely surprise me if one reason the Celtics stood pat at the deadline last year is that they knew ITís hip was a ticking time bomb and unlikely to make it through the postseason.

Now itís possible that the Celtics medical/training staff was let go because of the injury, but I think if there was any one injury reason it was more to do with the handling of Avery Bradley. But more I think it was several yearsí worth of sub-par performance.

The time table for IT to return is January and he is unlikely to see the court before then. This is a very serious injury and without surgery it is not going to get better. The Cavs just hope the rehab gets him through the season and playoffs before his hip really gives out.

He rushes it and his career may be over.   Still you have to respect the guy because his team is hurting without him.   That being said, I hate the CAVs a little less than the Lakers or whatever team LeBron is on.

He was first diagnosed with a groin injury. The hip talk wasn't until much later, and it's unclear when exactly it was identified as a torn labrum.

Unclear to fans, perhaps.

Are fans on this forum supposed to be rooting for the C's or for IT?  You can say I root for IT when he's not playing against the C's but if you're rooting for IT and the Cavs to go to The Finals, what's that say about you as a C's fan?  I haven't given up on this year by any means.  Sorry Hayward is likely out for the year but I still have high hopes it'll be the C's vs. the Warriors in the finals.
