Thompson sounds close to returning, so this issue should pass. But teams are usually conservative in these estimates so as not to expose their players to criticism for not working hard enough in rehab. Thompson was left hung out to dry here.

Maybe Thompson, who's famously low-maintenance, doesn't mind. But if a 3-4-week timeline was never realistic, I wouldn't blame him for resenting the Cavs.

Poor communication on injuries might not be limited to only the 76ers.
