Boston Celtics guard Isaiah Thomas (groin strain) has been formally ruled out for Sunday's game against the Thunder. Thomas did not travel with the team Saturday to Oklahoma City. Thomas said Friday that he's hopeful he can join the team before Wednesday's game against the San Antonio Spurs but team decision-makers have urged him not to rush his return.

He is now 4-27 on potential go-ahead shots in the final 10 seconds of the 4th quarter/OT in his career. He's missed 10 of his last 11 such attempts.
