The Cavaliers announced Monday point guard Isaiah Thomas will not make his season debut against the Celtics on Wednesday, but will instead suit up Tuesday against Portland and come off the bench under a strict minutes restriction.

Adding to the buzzkill for Boston and NBA fans alike, Thomas will not play Wednesday at TD Garden. The former Celtics star will have to wait until Feb. 11 to face his old team in Boston.

Thomas has missed the first 36 games of the season rehabbing a hip injury suffered the postseason.
