EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) — Los Angeles Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas will need four months to recover from arthroscopic surgery on his right hip.
The Lakers announced Thomas’ prognosis after the surgery Thursday (Friday, PHL time).
Thomas will be a free agent by the time he recovers from the procedure, but he has expressed interest in staying with the Lakers.
The two-time All-Star guard averaged 15.6 points and 5.0 assists in 17 games with Los Angeles, which acquired him from Cleveland in February.
