Isaiah Thomas says he has lost nearly 20 pounds
One of the smallest players in the NBA just got even smaller this offseason.
Ex-All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas took to Twitter on Tuesday to reveal that he now weighs 168 pounds, noting he had not been that light since prep school.
Damn weighed in today at 168lbs haven’t been this light since prep school… Can’t wait for this season! #ThatSLOWgrind

Thomas, who signed a one-year deal for the veteran’s minimum with the Washington Wizards this summer, has an officially listed weight of 185, meaning that he has lost nearly 20 pounds.
The 30-year-old made just 12 appearances last season for the Denver Nuggets and has played in a mere 44 games total since suffering a serious hip injury in 2017. Having less weight to carry around will certainly help Thomas though, and he recently sounded optimistic about recapturing his previous form.
