Boston Celtics reserve guard Marcus Thornton is set to return to game action on Wednesday night against the Brooklyn Nets after missing 11 games due to a tear in his left calf. Thornton's return adds another body to Boston's already overcrowded rotation and forced Boston coach Brad Stevens to make difficult choices with his inactive list.

Thornton, Nelson out vs. Hornets

BOSTON -- Marcus Thornton (calf) and Jameer Nelson (ankle) sat out Monday's visit from the Charlotte Hornets. Thornton has now missed 11 games while dealing with a small tear in his left leg. He returned to practice last week, but hasn't felt good enough to return to game activity. Thornton participated in the team's morning shootaround Monday, but the team is proceeding with caution. Thornton was on the Garden floor before Monday's game engaging in conditioning activities.
