injury report on Isaiah Thomas

Isaiah Thomas Injury?

After a report from Glenn Ordway Friday that Thomas is playing with a broken jaw, the Celtics issued a statement refuting the report:

“As a result of a collision that occurred in Game 1 of the Boston Celtics’ Eastern Conference Semifinals series against the Washington Wizards, Isaiah Thomas sustained multiple front teeth injuries including a complete fractured tooth and two other subluxed/shifted teeth that required extensive oral surgery to stabilize. He did not suffer a fractured or broken jaw. ”

“Thomas is currently wearing a four-piece temporary bridge that cracked after being re-injured. This necessitated a replacement to protect and stabilize the injuries. Members of the Celtics medicalstaff anticipated the need to replace the temporary bridges, anf are prepared at any time to do so. Thomas will receive a permanent bridge at a future date.”
