Thornton to miss rest of summer league
Thornton bruised his left shin during the Hornets' second game against the Miami Heat on Sunday night, so the club has decided to rest him as a precaution.
In two summer league games, Thornton averaged 18.5 points and 6.5 rebounds.
Fellow second-year guard Darren Collison also is missing the rest of summer league after being excused so he may take the last summer course he needs to finish his bachelor's degree at UCLA.
Both Collison and Thornton participated in all seven practices under new coach Monty Williams' staff in the past week before summer league games began.
