CLEVELAND– Isaiah Thomas is getting closer to making his debut with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The point guard was assigned to the Canton Charge, which is the Cavs’ NBA G League team. General manager Koby Altman said Thomas is on assignment in order to officially participate in the Charge full-team practice scheduled for Thursday.

The Cavaliers acquired the 28-year-old in the trade that sent Kyrie Irving to Boston.

Thomas has yet to appear in a game with the Cavs this season as he recovers from a hip injury. Earlier this month, he played 4-on-4 during practice, which was considered significant progress.
