Cleveland Cavaliers guard Isaiah Thomas is slated to make his long-awaited comeback from a hip injury Tuesday night against the Trailblazers. But because he's not able to play back to back games yet, he will sit out Wednesday's game against the Boston Celtics. 

One thing: Thomas requested he not receive the video tribute that's was likely being planned. 

I keep saying that I gave that city everything I had and they showed me genuine love back and I think that love is going to last forever. So, theres no hard feelings. This aint no revenge game. They know what they gave up. They knew what they got. Its all good. Im focused on the Cleveland Cavaliers and trying to win a championship.

The Cavs will be back in Boston on February 11, the night Paul Pierce's jersey is retired.
