Thomas (lower leg) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Hawks.
Thomas suffered the injury Friday against the Clippers and won't be available for the season finale. The 25-year-old appeared in five games for Houston and averaged 16.4 points, 5.0 assists, 3.6 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 1.2 blocks in 30.6 minutes.
Thomas won't return to Friday's game against the Clippers due to a right lower leg injury, Cayleigh Griffin of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.
The forward suffered the injury sometime during the second half of Friday's matchup. Thomas posted 17 points across 8-of-11 shooting while dishing out five assists and grabbing three rebounds prior to his early exit. Thomas should be considered questionable for the Rockets' season finale Sunday against Atlanta.
Thomas agreed to a multi-year contract with the Rockets on Thursday, Kelly Iko of The Athletic reports.
Thomas has made a positive impression on the Rockets in just four games, though the contract is likely partially guaranteed for the 2021-22 season. In those four contests, he's averaged 16.3 points on 43.6 percent shooting, 5.0 assists, 3.8 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 2.0 triples per game.
Thomas will start Wednesday's game versus the Lakers, Ryan Ward of LakersNation.com reports.

The Creighton product is making the most of his opportunity with Houston, and he's a perfect example of how teams out of contention can discover talent from the G-League ranks. The addition of Thomas has bolstered a fragile rotation that suffers without John Wall and Christian Wood.
Thomas recorded 27 points (10-21 FG, 4-12 3Pt, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, five steals, three assists and two blocks across 34 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Jazz.
Thomas signed a 10-day contract with the Rockets on Friday and has made a huge impact early on, scoring 15-plus points in his two outings and performing above the expectations so far. This might be enough for Houston to keep him on another 10-day contract, though his best fantasy-related scenario would make him a decent streaming alternative depending on the matchup.
Thomas (recently signed) could make his Rockets debut Friday against the Bucks, Adam Spolane of Sports Radio 610 Houston reports.

This season, he appeared in seven games with the Austin Spurs in the G League bubble, where he averaged 13.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 18.6 minutes.

Prior to his absence during the G League quarterfinals Monday, Thomas had an inconsistent role for Austin this year and only appeared in seven games for the team. The 24-year-old averaged 13.9 points and 3.4 rebounds over 18.6 minutes per game during the G League campaign.
Thomas (hamstring) logged 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt), two rebounds, one assist and one block over 13 minutes in Friday's 109-106 win over the Blue.
Thomas missed the team's last game due to a hamstring injury, but he returned to the starting five during Friday's narrow victory. He saw the least playing time of any starter against the Blue, but he could continue to ramp up his workload going forward.
Thomas didn't play in Thursday's win over Iowa due to a left hamstring injury.
Thomas has appeared in just two games for Austin early in the G League season, but he started in each appearance. It's not yet clear whether his hamstring injury will prevent him from suiting up Friday against the Blue.
Thomas put up 14 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt), two steals and one rebound in 19 minutes during Saturday's 115-108 G League win over Erie.
Thomas is averaging 18 points per appearance through two G League games with Austin this season. The 24-year-old has seen action in 34 NBA games with the Pistons over the previous two seasons but is currently a free agent.
Thomas was signed and waived by San Antonio earlier this week, Jeff Garcia of News 4 San Antonio reports.
Thomas will spend the season with San Antonio's G League affiliate (Austin Spurs) after he signed an Exhibit 10 contract on Friday and then was waived. Thomas appeared in eight games for the Pistons last season, averaging 2.1 points per game.
The Hawks plan to waive Thomas, Sarah Spencer of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as the Hawks have plenty of backcourt depth and couldn't offer much of a role to the newly acquired guard. Thomas will head into free agency and look to catch on with another team.
Thomas was traded to the Hawks on Thursday, along with Tony Snell, in exchange for DeWayne Dedmon, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
Through two NBA seasons, the Creighton product has only appeared in 34 total games, including just eight in 2019-20. Thomas is unlikely to find more opportunity in Atlanta, as the Hawks are considerably further along in their rebuild than Detroit.
Thomas played 13 minutes off the bench and contributed six points (2-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt) with one rebound Sunday in a 96-84 loss to the Knicks.
After returning in late February from the left foot surgery that sidelined him for most of the season, Thomas has occupied a minor rotation role for the Pistons. He's seen the floor in five of the team's last six games, topping out at 14 minutes. Thomas will likely be a prime candidate to lose out on playing time once the likes of Brandon Knight (knee) and Luke Kennard (knee) return to action.
Thomas (foot) is available for Tuesday's game at Denver, James L. Edwards III of The Athletic reports.
Thomas was considered probable with a left foot issue but will be suiting up Tuesday. The 23-year-old hasn't played in NBA action since early November and will likely have a minor role off the bench if he sees the court.
Thomas (foot) is probable for Tuesday's contest against Denver.
Thomas hasn't appeared in a game for the Pistons since Nov. 6 following foot surgery. Even if the guard is active for Wednesday's contest however, there's a better chance Thomas won't see the floor. In just two games played, Thomas is averaging 3.0 minutes.
Thomas recorded 27 points (10-26 FG, 7-12 3Pt), seven rebounds and one assist in Friday's win over Northern Arizona.
Although he struggled with his shot overall, Thomas was dialed in from behind the arc and managed to convert over 50-percent of his takes from distance. His involvement with Grand Rapids is expected to be relatively limited as Thomas' presumably getting some additional in-game reps as part of his rehab from a foot injury that's kept him from the floor for the past three months. There's chance that he'll continue to play for Grand Rapids for another game or two, though a placement in Detroit could come quickly if he continues to play well.
