Isaiah Thomas is finally getting another chance.

The veteran guard soon will make his return to the NBA after signing a 10-day free-agent contract with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The Lakers have five players -- including starting point guard Russell Westbrook -- in the league's COVID-19 protocols, so adding a guard with offensive skill like Thomas to their roster makes sense.

Thomas made headlines Wednesday night when he scored 42 points in the G-League. The Lakers are hoping he can still provide some much-needed offense off the bench in the NBA.
