Thornwell tallied 20 points (9-14 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 0-3 FT), seven assists, five rebounds, two steals, and two blocks in 32 minutes during Monday's 113-100 loss to the Pelicans.
Thornwell turned in career highs in scoring and assists while matching his career best in blocks. The long list of injuries certainly helped Thornwell's cause, and the 23-year-old rookie can likely be expected to receive ample minutes in Wednesday's season finale versus the Lakers. There will be a ton of variables involved going forward, but Thornwell's defensive versatility, effort, and well-rounded offensive game bodes well for his future in the league. If the Clippers don't re-sign Avery Bradley or address the wing rotation during free agency, Thorwell could carve himself out a more reliable reserve role as a sophomore in 2018-19.
Thornwell will come off the bench for Saturday's contest against the Nuggets, Elliott Teaford of the Torrance Daily Breeze reports.
Despite drawing a start in the team's most recent contest, Thornwell played his usual role, seeing 16 minutes. So, in coming off the bench Saturday, much may not change.
Thornwell will start at small forward Thursday against Jazz, Elliott Teaford of the Southern California News Group reports.
With Danilo Gallinari (hand) still out, the rookie Thornwell will make his 16th start of the season. As a starter, he has averaged 6.4 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.0 assists in just over 26 minutes per contest. Look for C.J. Williams and Wesley Johnson to also see an uptick in minutes off the bench.
Thornwell had only two points (1-2 FG), two steals and one rebound in 15 minutes during Wednesday's 127-120 victory over Milwaukee.
Thornwell moved back to the bench to make way for Wesly Johnson. The move did nothing to increase his fantasy value as he delivered minimal stats in just 15 minutes. Thornwell is not worth owning in basically any format and should be avoided if you are looking for production.
Thornwell will return to a bench role for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.
Thonrwell has started at small forward for the last few weeks, but the Clippers are slated to switch things up Wednesday, with Wesley Johnson entering the starting five in his place. The demotion to the second unit could mean a handful less minutes for Thornwell and he was already struggling to provide much in terms of fantasy production, so continue to avoid him moving forward.
