The Denver Nuggets will head into this weekend’s NBA All-Star Break as one of the top teams in the Association.
An up-and-comer of sorts, Denver currently boasts a 38-18 record — the second-best mark in the Western Conference.
They could also now be getting back a major reinforcement. After having not played since he was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers back in March of 2017, All-Star Isaiah Thomas could make his Nuggets debut on Wednesday.
Denver guard Isaiah Thomas will decide early in the day about possibly making his season debut vs. Sacramento on Wednesday, league source tells ESPN. Nuggets have upgraded Thomas to questionable. He's been out since hip surgery last March.

Thomas, 30, has played in a grand total of 32 games since suffering a hip injury as a member of the Boston Celtics back in 2016-17. He underwent hip surgery last year and has been sidelined since.
Thomas’ last full season in the NBA saw him average 28.9 points and 5.9 assists while shooting 46 percent from the field with the above-mentioned Celtics.
He obviously wasn’t anywhere near 100 percent in stops with the Cavaliers and Lakers after being dealt from Boston prior to last season.
