The Suns are reporting that they expect Thomas to participate fully in the team’s training camp which starts in a little over a month.
Thomas, who was acquired by the Phoenix Suns in free agency earlier this summer, is thought of somebody who will make a major impact for the team after spending the last 3 years in Sacramento as their starting point guard.
It is unsure if Thomas will start at the point guard position for the Suns.
The Suns have five point guards on the roster, with the decision Eric Bledsoe hopefully coming soon. If Bledsoe agrees to a deal he will start and Thomas will come off the bench.
One thing is for sure is that we need Thomas to be fully healthy in order to compete for a playoff spot in the Western Conference in this upcoming season.
The Phoenix Suns will take on the Los Angeles Lakers on Oct. 29 for opening day.
