Thomas (ankle) went through an individual workout Wednesday and hopes to be available for either Friday's game against the Timberwolves or Sunday's outing versus the Kings, Stefan Bondy of New York Daily News reports.

Thomas claims his ankle is pain free, which suggests he's on the brink of a return. While he's been ruled out of Wednesday's contest against the Timberwolves, he's targeting either Friday or Sunday for his first action since Nov. 12. He'll attempt to take part in practice later this week, which is likely the last stepping stone before being cleared for game action.
