Rookie power forward Al Thornton was thrust into big minutes due to the injury to Elton Brand and he hasn’t responded well yet. Thornton has played in 23 games so far this season and he is averaging 16.8 minutes, 7.1 points, 3.2 rebounds and 0.3 assists per game. His problem has been his shooting as he is only hitting 39.5% from the floor, 36% from three point range and 64.6% from the free throw line. He will likely only increase his playing time if his shooting improves soon.
