Magic's Sindarius Thornwell: Sticks in rotation Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell put up three points (1-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt) to go with three assists, one rebound and one assist across 17 minutes Sunday in the Magic's 128-96 loss to the Timberwolves.

Thornwell was making his third appearance with Orlando since signing a two-way contract May 4. With the banged-up Magic down several rotation players in each of those contests, Thornwell has been pressed into a rotation role out of necessity. He played a combined 57 minutes in those contests, totaling five points (on 2-for-12 shooting from the field), five assists, five steals and three rebounds over that stretch. Thornwell doesn't look like he'll be much of a fantasy option during the last week of the season, even with Orlando likely to still be without multiple key players in their final four games.

Sindarius Thornwell: Time in NOLA over
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pelicans elected not to re-sign Thornwell after his second 10-day contract expired over the weekend, Andrew Lopez of reports.

Had New Orleans elected to retain Thornwell, he would have had to sign a rest-of-season deal, but the team deciding keeping an extra roster spot open was a greater priority in advance of Thursday's trade deadline. If the Pelicans still have a roster opening in the aftermath of the deadline, team could revisit bringing Thornwell back. The fourth-year wing has appeared in 14 games with New Orleans this season, averaging 1.2 points in 5.2 minutes per contest.

Pelicans' Sindarius Thornwell: Dishes out seven dimes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thornwell posted 12 points (3-4 3Pt, 3-4 FT), seven assists, and three rebounds in 21 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 119-104 scrimmage win over the Nuggets.

Thornwell signed a deal with the Pelicans earlier this month and might have a role off the bench once the regular season resumes, but he faces a tough road to earn meaningful minutes in a crowded backcourt that already includes Jrue Holiday, Lonzo Ball, J.J. Redick, and rookie Nickeil Alexander-Walker, among others.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 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.

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.
