Thomas’ timeline for a return is unclear, according to USA Today’s Sam Amick, who also notes that it “might be awhile” before Thomas is able to come back.
The Nuggets may have confirmed that news Wednesday, as it looks like the team is going to sign veteran guard Donald Sloan.

Injuries limited Thomas’ production last season. In 32 games, he averaged just 15.2 points per game. That was a significant decline from Thomas’ 2016-2017 season, when he averaged 28.9 points and was named to the All-NBA Team.
Given Thomas’ potential, the Nuggets are taking the cautious approach. When healthy, he’s shown the ability to post All-Star production.
