Celtics point guard Isaiah Thomas told the Boston Herald his injured his has responded to rest and rehab and he should be ready for training camp.
"The hip is great," Thomas told the Herald on Saturday at his annual basketball clinic at Boston University "It’s going well. Rehabbing it, but it’s going well. It’s a real slow rehab process, but it’s getting better and that’s what it’s all about."

After aggravating the hip injury in the playoffs against the Cleveland Cavaliers, Thomas was shut down after Game 2 of that series and opted not to have surgery.
"I’ve been resting," he said. "That was the gameplan when my season was over. To rest and stay off it as much as possible to see how it reacts. It’s reacted well, it’s just going to take some time."
Thomas said he expects to be OK for training camp in September.
"I should be ready by camp, but I’m getting back in the gym shooting and being able to work out in the weight room and get my cardio back because I’ve been down for two and a half months since the season ended," Thomas said. "It’s getting there though. This week has been great progress for me."
