The Pelicans have signed Sindarius Thornwell as a replacement player for the rest of the season.
Thornwell was waived by the Cavs right before the season began and has yet to appear in the NBA this season. He does have 137 career games under his belt, including 17 starts, across two seasons with the Clippers. Thornwell should only function as emergency depth for the Pels in Orlando.

The Cavs have waived guard Daniel Hamilton, forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, guard J.P. Macura and guard Sindarius Thornwell, General Manager Koby Altman announced on Tuesday.
The Cavs are loaded with guards so it makes sense to release all the above. Cleveland’s roster now stands at 16, including Dean Wade, who is on a two-way deal.

Sindarius Thornwell has reached an agreement with the Cavs on a one-year deal.
It was no secret that the Cavs had their eye on Thornwell, so this move comes as no surprise. He will have a ceiling as a deep-league contributor as a member of the Cavs' second unit, should he make his way into their regular season rotation.

Sam Amico of Amico Hoops is reporting that combo guard Sindarius Thornwell is among the free agents on the Cavs’ radar this offseason.
The Cavs remain about $22 million over the salary cap even after waiving J.R. Smith last week, while they possess a taxpayer mid-level exception of about $5.7 million and around $5 million in trade exceptions, allowing them to make some small-scale moves. Thornwell appeared in 64 games with the Clippers last season, his second in the NBA, but wasn’t given much playing time. His salary of $1.6 million was to become guaranteed on July 20th but he was waived by the Clippers two weeks before that.

The Clippers have officially waived shooting guard Sindarius Thornwell.
Thornwell was not on any fantasy radars prior to this news, so it's unlikely that this changes anything. That said, he's young and still has room to grow and can possibly do that on another team this season.

Sindarious Thornwell only got eight minutes of action in Wednesday’s win over the Jazz and hit two free throws, grabbed one board and committed a personal foul.
Thornwell hasn’t done anything to stand out during his second season as a Clipper and as the No. 490 ranked player in 9-cat over the 64 games he played, he won’t be on any fantasy rosters next season. He might struggle to make an NBA roster, as well.

Wilson Chandler (strained right quad) is available to make his Clippers’ debut on Friday vs. the Thunder.
Don’t look for the oft-injured Chandler to get a run allotment of minutes right out the gate but he could eventually steal a few minutes from JaMychal Green and Sindarius Thornwell.

Sindarius Thornwell started on Thursday against the Pacers, scoring five points and adding five steals.
The five steals are huge for Thornwell, who may see a big jump in playing time with Avery Bradley shipped out of town. We'll see how the rotation shakes out, but Lou Williams is likely to maintain his sixth man role.

Sindarius Thornwell scored 17 points on 17 field goal attempts in the Clippers loss to the Lakers on Thursday night.
Thornwell is going to be buried in the Clippers guard rotation, currently slotted behind Avery Bradley and Lou Williams on the depth chart at shooting guard. It's hard to imagine he will find a way to be fantasy relevant in this spot. At least he was good in college.

Sindarius Thornwell started in Wednesday's season finale, chipping in 12 points, three triples, two assists and a steal in 35 minutes.
Thornwell scored a career-high 20 with six cash counters in game No. 81 but offered up more typical production in this one. Thornwell was a top-280 option by total value, though that's entirely because he played in 73 games. The Clippers brought in enough backcourt players that nobody really stood out for more than a game or two at a time even with all of their injuries.

Sindarius Thornwell scored 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting (including two threes) with five rebounds, seven assists, two steals and two blocks in 32 minutes off the bench in Monday's loss to the Pelicans.
Thornwell had a great stat set in college but it hadn't really shown up in the NBA until now. He's well worth a look for the Clippers' final game on Wednesday against the Lakers.
March 30, 2018, 2:34 pmMilos TeodosicPG, Los Angeles Clippers
Milos Teodosic has been diagnosed with a tear in his plantar fascia and will be re-evaluated in two weeks.
Teodosic is now safe to drop in all re-draft leagues. His court vision and moxie have provided some fun highlights this season but injuries really prevented the "rookie" from building up much steam throughout the year. Austin Rivers will hold things down at point guard and is a must-add player where available, while other backcourt guys like Lou Williams, Sindarius Thornwell and Jawun Evans figure to get in the mix a bit more. Williams' stock is obviously unchanged. It might even open up more time for wing types like Tyrone Wallace and C.J. Williams, depending on how the Clippers shuffle the deck. Outside of Rivers and maybe Wallace, however, it's going to be a pretty risky proposition.

Milos Teodosic has been ruled out for the second half of Tuesday's game after leaving with a sore left plantar fascia.
Teodosic just hasn't been able to shake the foot problems this season. He went into the locker room shortly before halftime but didn't appear to be laboring all that much, though odds are that Milos is looking at some time on the sidelines here. Lou Williams started the second half in his place while other players like Austin Rivers and Sindarius Thornwell and recent call-ups C.J. Williams and Tyrone Wallace also stand to benefit. Teodosic will finish the game with 13 points, four 3-pointers, four assists and a block.

Wesley Johnson replaced Sindarius Thornwell in the starting five on Wednesday night and managed seven points, six rebounds, a steal, a block and a 3-pointer in 28 minutes.
Johnson is always a deep league option for cash counters whenever he gets minutes, so hopefully this continues going forward. Thornwell finished with two points and two steals in 16 minutes off the bench and is an afterthought in just about all fantasy leagues.
March 20, 2018, 6:17 pmDanilo GallinariSF/PF, Los Angeles Clippers
Danilo Gallinari will miss the Clippers’ current four-game road trip but is hoping to return to action on March 27th against the Bucks.
Gallinari had his fractured hand re-evaluated earlier today and it went well enough that a concrete return date has been made public. His return will probably bump Sindarius Thornwell from the starting five and could serve to cap the workloads of the rest of L.A.’s forwards. Gallo doesn’t necessarily have a history of meeting recovery timelines but if you can afford it, he’s worth a stash. Injuries are really the only barrier between Gallinari and middle-round value every season, and unfortunately the injuries have won pretty handily this year. Hopefully he can deliver a strong finish as the Clips make a final playoff push.
