Injury addition: Thornton (calf) out vs. Philly

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Boston Celtics backup shooting guard Marcus Thornton suffered a strained left calf during Sunday's practice and will not travel with the team for Monday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Thornton, who has been playing some of his best ball of the season in recent games, had put himself in position for more minutes moving forward, but the injury offers a bit of a speed bump in that progress. Before Sunday's practice, Celtics coach Brad Stevens noted, "Marcus Thornton has given us a chance in a few of the last games.

Marcus Thornton needs to get minutes in crunch time

The Celtics‘ primary struggles have been well documented to this point. They are very, very bad when it comes to late game execution. One of the players most people look to in those situations — including his teammates — is Rajon Rondo. But, Rondo has preformed poorly in those scenarios so far this season, something he […]

Celtics Notebook: Thornton has big afternoon

Celtics Notebook: Thornton has big afternoon

Like Kris Humphries last season, Marcus Thornton often doesn’t know where his next minute is coming from.Also like Humphries, Thornton understands that under coach Brad Stevens, it’s vital to make every minute count when the call does come. The Celtics guard actually went beyond that standard yesterday with 21 points in 17 minutes during the 101-93 win over Washington.

Thornton emerges to play critical role

BOSTON -- The way things had been trending for Boston Celtics guard Marcus Thornton, he needed to do something in order to reverse his fortunes. Seeing his playing time dip in the team’s last two games -- to the point where he didn’t see time in the second half of either contest -- Thornton seemingly was falling out of favor to fellow reserve Phil Pressey. Instead of continuing that trend on Sunday against the Washington Wizards, the fifth-year guard responded with his best game of the season, putting up 21 points on 7-of-12 shooting off the bench to help the Celtics hold on to a 101-93...

It's becoming clear that Marcus Thornton is not a part of the Boston Celtics' long-term plans

What should the Boston Celtics do with Marcus Thornton? Marcus Thornton has gone 15-straight games without scoring at least 15 points, which is the first time that has happened in his entire career. A former 18.7 points per game scorer, Thornton has seen his production decline in the past two seasons, which is why he ended up with the Boston Celtics this offseason as a giveaway player. At only 27-years-old, Thornton will enter free agency next summer, so his agent Tony Dutt was concerned about his potential lack of opportunities in Boston. "Our biggest concern is whether he will get an...
