Thomas injures arm

This is not a good week to be Tyrus Thomas.

The forward missed two days with a nasty case of the flu earlier in the week before returning in a limited role Thursday at Cleveland. Then on Friday, Thomas suffered an injury to his left arm in a weight lifting accident during practice at the Berto Center.

The severity of the injury is not known yet, but Thomas was taken to a local hospital for x-rays. The results of those x-rays and his status for Saturday night’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats is unclear at this point.

“It’s pretty sore,” coach Vinny Del Negro said. “I don’t know how bad it is. He went to get an x-ray. Let’s see how it is. I want to see how he is, what the doctor says.

“I think he was doing some type of pull up or something and kind of injured his arm. It’s just unfortunate.”
