Isaiah Thomas opens up about hip issue ahead of NBA free agency

At 31 years old, point guard Isaiah Thomas will try to reinvent himself once again in the NBA. The veteran has been battling injuries for the last few years after almost earning an MVP award with the Boston Celtics and now he’s ready to show the world he can still play at an elite level.

Thomas opened up about the recent hip procedure he underwent and how he plans to bounce back after three years of not being close to 100 percent, via ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

“Now, I can lift weights. I can squat low. I can work out twice a day. I’m able to cut and move and stop, able to cut and go. I feel like I’m 31 years old again. And now, I have scientific evidence to show that.”
