Just when things really started to pick up for Nets guard Cam Thomas, well, he suffered a setback.
According to a release from the team, Thomas suffered a left ankle sprain, an MRI confirmed. He will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Thomas is off to a fantastic start, averaging 26.9 points through the first eight games.
“Anytime you average 26 points a game to start the season, that’s a good thing,” Thomas recently told Michael Scotto of HoopsHype. “Last year, I was probably only averaging about 2-5 points at this same time. Then, by the end of last year, I averaged about 10 points, and now it’s 26.
“Obviously, it’s somewhat of a breakout, but I just want to keep building. It’s still early. As long as I can stay consistent, that’s the main thing, whether it’s 15, 20, or 30 points. I want to play a complete game, be consistent, and help my team out the best way I can.”
