Isaiah Thomas is progressing in his rehabilitation of his injured right hip, and is more visible at Cavaliers practice to reporters at the end of the team's workouts.

The team hasn't given any update to Thomas' timetable for his return (it's still by or around Jan. 1), and will only say he's doing well with his recovery.

But Thomas, the two-time All-Star and All-NBA point guard, was jacking 3-pointers and shooting off the dribble in a post-practice workout Thursday with LeBron James and Dwyane Wade. The three will probably start together when Thomas returns.

In the meantime, James and Thomas are getting to know each other and developing a rapport. James posted to Instagram Wednesday a video of Thomas jumping rope, referring to him as his "brother" and adopting Thomas' "#slowgrind" mantra, which Thomas uses to describe his road back to the court.
