Report: Thomas Reinstated

Isaiah Thomas' high school coach said the North Carolina sophomore DT will return to the team, according to the <i>Winston-Salem Journal</i>.

Coach Keith Wilkes of Carver said yesterday that Thomas told him that he will be allowed to rejoin the program for spring practice in March.

Thomas, a sophomore defensive tackle, teammates Fred Sparkman, a linebacker, and Adarius Bowman, a receiver, were suspended Oct. 11 after being cited for simple marijuana possession in Chapel Hill by UNC public-safety officers.

"He told me he would back out there in the spring," Wilkes said. "I hope he's learned his lesson. I think he was relieved about it because he's never been in trouble before."
