Pelicans' Sindarius Thornwell: Signs on with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell signed with the Pelicans on Monday.

While it's not yet clear who he's replacing, Thornwell will join the Pelicans as a "substitute player" when the season resumes in Orlando at the end of July. The former South Carolina standout most recently played in the G League with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, but he previously spent time with the Clippers in 2017-18 and 2018-19. In 137 career NBA games, Thornwell holds averages of 2.5 points and 0.7 rebounds in 10.7 minutes per game.

Sindarius Thornwell: Musters 12 points in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell mustered 12 points (4-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, four assists, two steals and one block during Saturday's win over Sioux Falls.

It was the third outing in the past five matchups in which Thornwell reached at least 10 points, and the South Carolina product also contributed in every major statistical category in 34 minutes of action Saturday. Still, Thornwell is averaging just 9.3 points and 5.1 rebounds per contest with the Vipers this season.

Sindarius Thornwell: Flirts with triple-double
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell managed 14 points (4-13 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 3-3 FT), eight rebounds, eight assists, three steals and two blocks during Tuesday's G League loss against Salt Lake City.

Thornwell contributed in all aspects Tuesday and nearly ended up with a triple-double in 36 minutes of action. The South Carolina product is averaging 11.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, 4.1 assists and 2.1 steals through eight G League contests so far.

Sindarius Thornwell: Notches doubled-double Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell mustered 21 points (7-15 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), 11 rebounds, four assists, one steal and one block in Friday's G League loss at Salt Lake City.

Thornwell was brilliant overall in 35 minutes of action Friday, as the guard lead the team with 11 rebounds to go along with 21 points to mark a double-double. In three G League games so far this year, the South Carolina product is averaging 13.3 points and 5.7 rebounds per outing.

Sindarius Thornwell: Waived by Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell was let go by the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Thornwell was fighting for a roster spot with the team, but couldn't do enough through training camp and the preseason. It's possible he lands a deal in the G League.

Cavaliers' Sindarius Thornwell: Leads team with 12 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell totaled 12 points (3-4 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 17 minutes during Sunday's 118-72 preseason loss to Boston.

Thornwell top-scored for the Cavaliers with 12 points, demonstrating how bad they were as a team. Thornwell has shown glimpses over the past couple of seasons, however, the move to Cleveland does not seem like it is going to vault him into any kind of competitive league discussion.

Cavaliers' Sindarius Thornwell: Joins Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell has agreed to a one-year contract with the Cavaliers, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Thornwell saw his role reduced last season compared to his rookie year, totaling just 313 minutes. But during 2017-18, he averaged 3.9 points and 1.9 rebounds across 15.8 minutes. In joining the rebuilding Cavaliers, it seems likely that Thornwell will have some opportunities to be a regular part of the rotation.

Sindarius Thornwell: Let go by Clippers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell was waived by the Clippers on Saturday, per the NBA transactions page.

Thornwell saw his role decrease last season, eventually seeing just 4.9 minutes per game over 64 games in the 2018-19 campaign. The 24-year-old's average was down almost nine minutes from his 2017-18 average (15.8 minutes per game through 73 games). Thornwell can still find another opportunity in the NBA, but he likely can't be trusted in fantasy until further notice.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Sees one minute in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell swiped one steal in one minute during Wednesday's 111-105 loss to the Jazz.

Thornwell has earned exactly one minute in three of the last four games, and he's averaging just 5.6 minutes per game through 45 appearances this season (compared to 15.8 minutes across 73 games as a rookie). The sophomore is simply not involved enough to be trusted for fantasy purposes, at least so long as the Clippers remain competitive in the race for a playoff spot.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Returning to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell will come off the bench Saturday against the Celtics, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

Coach Doc Rivers will opt to start a new acquisition at small forward in Garrett Temple, so Thornwell will come off the bench. His role is expected to be minimal for the rest of the season and he can likely be avoided in the vast majority of fantasy formats.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Racks up steals in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell started at small forward and put up five points (2-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five steals, three rebounds and two assists in 29 minutes Thursday in the Clippers' 116-92 loss to the Pacers.

The steal total was pleasant surprise from Thornwell, but he did little else to make a case for earning big minutes in the rotation moving forward. In the aftermath of Thursday's trade deadline, the Clippers had just 10 players available, but the impending arrivals of Michael Beasley, Garrett Temple (shoulder), JaMychal Green (knee), Ivica Zubac and Landry Shamet will almost certainly have a negative impact on Thornwell's playing time.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Joins staring five Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell is starting Thursday against the Pacers, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

With Tobias Harris and Avery Bradley being traded away Thursday, Thornwell will step into the starting lineup for the first time all season. The Clippers are without multiple newly-acquired pieces vs. Indiana, so don't expect the second-year player out of South Carolina to stick in the starting lineup beyond Thursday. Thornwell has played double-digit minutes just eight times this season, averaging 2.1 points and 2.0 rebounds across 11.9 minutes in those contests.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Plays most minutes since Dec. 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell logged 10 minutes and contributed four points (1-2 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) in Sunday's 103-95 win over the Spurs.

With Danilo Gallinari (back), Lou Williams (hamstring) and Luc Mbah a Moute (knee) all sidelined, Thornwell was able to capture a rotation spot and logged his most minutes since Dec. 13. Thornwell's overall stat line was nothing to write home about, but the Clippers were plus-13 when he was on the floor, good for the second-best mark of any Los Angeles player for the night. None of the three injured players are expected back Tuesday in Dallas, so Thornwell should maintain a spot on the Clippers' second unit. However, it's unlikely that appointment comes with a dramatic bump in minutes from what he earned Sunday.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Back in Los Angeles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell was recalled from the G League on Tuesday, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

Thornwell was assigned to the G League to appear in the A.C. Clippers' game on Monday night. He scored 11 points in 30 minutes in a win over Santa Cruz and will now rejoin Los Angeles for practice Tuesday and will likely be active for Wednesday's home game against the Suns.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Headed back to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell was reassigned to the G League on Monday, Ridiculous Upside reports.

Thornwell has been a DNP-CD in each of the Clippers' last two games, so he'll head back to the G League for an opportunity to see regular minutes in a game setting.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Recalled from G-League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell was recalled for the G-League on Monday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Thornwell is back with the Clippers after being sent to the G-League over the weekend. He's appeared in just one game for the Clippers this season, playing four minutes and recording one rebound.

November 11, 2018 12:24 PM
Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Assigned to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell has been assigned to the G League on Sunday, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Thornwell was called up from the G League on Saturday and finally saw several minutes against the Bucks. It's not a surprising move at all as Thornwell will likely be switching leagues often this season.

Thornwell was recalled from the G-League on Friday, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Assigned to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell was assigned to the G League on Friday, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

While Thornwell was recalled from the G League on Monday, he still is yet to appear in a game for the Clippers this season. He'll continue, however, to see quality playing time for the Ague Caliente Clippers.

Clippers' Sindarius Thornwell: Back from G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell was recalled from the G League on Monday, Andrew Greif of the LA Times reports.

Thornwell was a key player for the Clippers last season amid a number of backcourt injuries, but with a healthier outlook and improved guard depth in 2018-19, he's yet to appear in a game for the NBA club.
