Thomas sent home again

Tyrus Thomas showed up at the Berto Center before this morning’s practice session, but was still sick and was sent home for a second straight day.

He won’t accompany the team when it departs for Cleveland this afternoon. Although it seems highly unlikely, there’s a remote chance he could travel on his own on Thursday and join the team in time for the game with the Cavaliers.

“He’s at home,” coach Vinny Del Negro said of Thomas. “He’ll see the doctor today and tomorrow and then we’ll reevaluate and see if he can fly to Cleveland. But he’s pretty sick still. He’s got the flu, sore throat, the whole thing.”

Besides allowing him to get rest, Thomas was sent home both days so he wouldn’t infect anyone else on the team.

“Exactly,” Del Negro said. “That’s why he’s not here.”
