The Kyrie Irving-Isaiah Thomas trade could fall through.
Earlier this week, news broke that Kyrie Irving had been traded to Boston for Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Ante Zizic and an unprotected pick.
The trade, however, is contingent on each player passing a physical, and that has created a massive snag in the deal.
Isaiah Thomas is still recovering from a hip injury that sidelined him in the Eastern Conference Finals, and it looks like he could miss “significant” time this season.
Celtics and Cavs set to talk today. Cleveland brass concerned Isaiah might miss significant time this season following physical.

Cleveland and Boston are scheduled to have a conference call today to talk about whether the trade will go through or not.
The Cavs could seek extra compensation in the trade, or void it completely.
