Thornwell costs the fantasy minimum, and does not produce much, a defence-first player who cannot create his shot at the NBA level yet. However, on account of injuries to Milos Teodosic, Patrick Beverley and Danilo Gallinari, he has started the last four games at shooting guard, while averaging 15.6 fantasy points over the last five. Having lost nine of their last ten and seven in a row, the Clippers need to shake things up, and they might want to make changes to the starting line-up. But there aren’t many players Thornwell can be replaced with, so expect him to keep starting.
