Phelps did, however, post the above photo on his Instagram account 4 days ago, with the caption “What a great thanksgiving dinner with family!!!” tagging his mom, his sister Hilary, and his girlfriend Nicole Johnson in the photo.

Neither his Instagram post nor the TMZ article indicated if or when Phelps might return to training.

USA Swimming banned Phelps from competition for 6 months, and also knocked him off the Long Course World Championship Team.

Presently Phelps appears happy and healthy. He did not attend the 2014 Golden Goggles held Nov 23rd where he was honored with the award for Male Athlete of the Year.  Phelps’ North Baltimore Aquatic Club trainer accepted the award on his behalf.

Who wants to throw a party for him now that hes out of rehab? i’ll see if we can get one of those massive suits at the Bellagio whos in? haha I hope he is doing well, but honestly I don’t care for updates that serve no purpose.

Michael should throw a party in Las Vegas and invite the entire US Swimming fed.

Yeah, right. He can’t even pay back the $6k he owed to his AA based club when he left them.

Are you referring to something specific? I have a hard time believing he is having financial difficulties. I remembering hearing that he would make about $100 million after the 2008 Olympics.
