Season over for former Husky basketball standout

The Lakers’ Isaiah Thomas is scheduled to undergo surgery on his right hip

EL SEGUNDO, Calif. — Los Angeles Lakers guard Isaiah Thomas will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his right hip, ending his season.

The Lakers announced the decision Wednesday before their game against Dallas. Los Angeles (32-41) already is eliminated from playoff contention for the franchise-record fifth consecutive season.

Thomas averaged 15.6 points and 5.0 assists in 17 games with the Lakers, who acquired him in a trade with Cleveland in February. His hip problems also limited him to just 15 appearances with the Cavaliers.

Thomas will undergo surgery Thursday. The procedure typically requires months of rehabilitation.

Thomas is a two-time All-Star selection who will be a free agent this summer. He has expressed interest in staying with Los Angeles, but the Lakers will first attempt to sign two elite free agents to maximum contracts.

Thomas is a former University of Washington standout. The school retired his No. 2 jersey last month.
