Nuggets’ Isaiah Thomas urges fan to drop him from fantasy team
Denver Nuggets point guard Isaiah Thomas hasn’t played in a game this season because of the arthroscopic hip surgery he underwent in March.
As we have seen with the NFL, fantasy fanatics often reach out to players on Twitter to see how they are recovering from injuries and if they are ready to play. Isaiah Thomas is one of the most active athletes on Twitter. He’s always responding to fans and updating his health status.
On Thursday, a fan wanted to know when IT is coming back and if he should drop Thomas from his fantasy team. Thomas didn’t hesitate to give the fan a honest, direct answer.
Drop me bro. Don’t wait https://t.co/Idjob5ZqeO

You have to love the honesty from Isaiah Thomas, who signed a one-year deal with the Nuggets in the offseason worth the vet minimum. The two-time All-Star doesn’t have a timetable for his return to the court, which means he has plenty of time to clap back at people on Twitter.
Thomas split time last year with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Lakers. In Denver, he is reuniting with coach Michael Malone. Thomas and Malone were together with the Sacramento Kings back in the day. The two have a great relationship and Thomas can’t wait to play for his old coach again.
The Nuggets, surprisingly, have the best record in the Western Conference right now. When Isaiah Thomas does play, he will back up Jamal Murray at the point guard spot.
