For Isaiah Thomas, the injury suffered in Game 1 was much more than a knocked out front tooth.

Late Friday afternoon the Celtics released a statement saying during Game 1 Thomas sustained multiple front teeth injuries including a complete fractured tooth and two other subluxed/shifted teeth that required extensive oral surgery to stabilize. 

He did not suffer a fractured or broken jaw, which was reported earlier on Friday.

The Celtics added Thomas is currently wearing a four-piece temporary bridge that cracked after being re-injured in Thursday’s Game 3. The spanning bridge is necessary to protect and stabilize the injuries. Members of the Celtics medical staff anticipated the need to replace the temporary bridges, and are prepared at any time to do so.

Thomas will receive a permanent bridge at a future date.

The Celtics lead the Wizards 2-1 in the best-of-seven series.

Chicago coach Fred Hoiberg stirred the pot a bit after Game 4 of the series between his Bulls and the Celtics by insinuating Boston guard Isaiah Thomas was constantly carrying the basketball.

“Isaiah Thomas is a hell of a player,” Hoiberg said after Game 4. “An unbelievable competitor. He’s a warrior [with] everything he’s going through right now. He had a hell of a game tonight. But when you’re allowed to discontinue your dribble on every possession, he is impossible to guard. He is impossible to guard when you’re able to put your hand underneath the ball and take two or three steps and put it back down. It’s impossible to guard him in those situations.”

Well, after the Bulls’ Game 5 loss, WEEI.com’s Josue Pavon checked back in with Hoiberg on the matter.
