The Sacramento Kings are coming off a decent win over the Minnesota Timberwolves, but they might have lost their primary shooting guard Marcus Thornton. Thornton was injured in yesterday's contest, and it's unknown how long he'll be out of action.
Marcus Thornton listed as out for tonight's game against Phoenix. #nbakings— JasonJones (@mr_jasonjones) April 3, 2012
Thornton has been on a tear for the Kings. He's been averaging 20 points per game, 4.1 rebounds per game and 2.1 assists per game, all while shooting 45.8% from the field and 36.4% from the three point line. That included eight 20 point games and two 30 point games.
With Thornton out, Tyreke Evans probably moves over to the shooting guard spot, and Terrence Williams becomes the starter at small forward. Jimmer Fredette probably becomes the primary guard for the Kings off the bench.
