If you follow Isaiah Thomas on Twitter, you’re probably familiar with #ThatSLOWGrind hashtag he uses.
Well, it seems the Washington Wizards guard will need to continue using it after sustaining a thumb injury that will sideline him six-to-eight weeks. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, Thomas “underwent surgery to repair a ligament in his left thumb.”

But just how did Thomas sustain his injury? Allow him to elaborate:
Hurt my damn thumb tryna play defense… Never again lol never again!

At least he can find some humor in it. But we don’t think he’ll be jumping to to play defense any time soon.
The Wizards visit Thomas’ former team, the Boston Celtics, on Nov. 13, putting him at the tail end of his timetable.
