If Isaiah Thomas might have made a mistake in avoiding surgery to repair his torn hip labrum.

Thomas heads into the biggest contract year of his professional basketball career as he is more than likely to be traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers if a deal is able to be finalized. As for Thomas' injury, however, the 28-year-old has refused the surgical rout of dealing with things and instead has opted to get treatment on it and let it heal in hopes of getting on the court as much as possible this upcoming season - an agreement Boston doctors concurred with. Cleveland doctors, however, aren't a fan of the option.

Pending the possible trade between Boston and Cleveland, the Cavs would be receiving Thomas, who's injury status would be considered highly dangerous and could likely put him out the majority of the season if something goes wrong.

Per a report from ESPN's Zack Lowe, Cleveland is asking for additional compensation in their trade with the Celtics because of this reason (quotes via Yahoo Sports):

"Boston was forthright about the injury in talks with Cleveland before the teams agreed to a trade on Aug. 22, sources say, but Cleveland’s doctors may come to a different conclusion about Thomas’ prognosis for the coming season — the last before LeBron James enters free agency as a flight risk again.

"If recovery from various hip ailments, including a bone bruise, does not proceed smoothly, there is at least a slight chance Thomas would miss most of the 2017-18 season, sources say. (Thomas disagrees.)"
