BOSTON — Point guard Isaiah Thomas, who has a right knee bone bruise, will remain in Boston this weekend and miss the Celtics’ road games against the Brooklyn Nets and Philadelphia 76ers.

Thomas has missed four other games this season, all in December with a groin injury.

Thomas is averaging 29.2 points per game while shooting 38 percent on 3-pointers.

Marcus Smart is expected to start in place of Thomas and Terry Rozier should see more time off the bench.

TIMBERWOLVES: Forward Nemanja Bjelica will miss the rest of the season with an injured left foot, a significant loss for a team trying to get back into the playoff picture in the Western Conference.

BULLS: Dwyane Wade will miss the rest of the season with a fractured right elbow.

Wade was injured Wednesday night in the fourth quarter of the game against Memphis. He collided with Grizzlies forward Zach Randolph and said after the game he felt his elbow pop.


CAVALIERS 91, JAZZ 83: LeBron James scored 33 points as Cleveland beat visiting Utah.

Kevin Love played for the first time since having surgery on his left knee last month, and scored 10 points in 19 minutes. But Kyrie Irving (tightness in his left knee) and Iman Shumpert (sprained left shoulder) left the game with injuries.

THUNDER 123, RAPTORS 102: Russell Westbrook had 24 points, 16 assists and 10 rebounds in three quarters for his 34th triple-double of the season as Oklahoma City won at Toronto.

The league’s leading scorer moved closer to the NBA’s single-season record for triple-doubles, 41, set by Oscar Robertson in the 1961-62 season.

NETS 121, KNICKS 110: Brook Lopez scored 24 points and visiting Brooklyn dominated the second half to earn its second victory over its New York rivals in five days.

The Nets made five straight 3-pointers during a 38-point third quarter.

GRIZZLIES 103, HAWKS 91: Marc Gasol had 18 points as part of his triple-double and resurgent Memphis beat Atlanta.

Gasol also had 10 rebounds and 10 assists.
