Isaiah Thomas likely will suit up for the Boston Celtics’ first-round playoff series opener against the Chicago Bulls on Sunday night. If he does, he’ll be playing with a heavy heart.
Thomas’ sister, Chyna, was killed in a single-car crash in Washington on Saturday morning. She was 22 years old.
The Celtics point guard has received a lot of support from the sports world, including former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz, who tweeted his support Sunday.
Boston is a close-knit community, and it will give any support Thomas needs during this difficult time for him and his family.
