Thornwell put up three points (1-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt) to go with three assists, one rebound and one assist across 17 minutes Sunday in the Magic's 128-96 loss to the Timberwolves.
EDGE Analysis
Thornwell was making his third appearance with Orlando since signing a two-way contract May 4. With the banged-up Magic down several rotation players in each of those contests, Thornwell has been pressed into a rotation role out of necessity. He played a combined 57 minutes in those contests, totaling five points (on 2-for-12 shooting from the field), five assists, five steals and three rebounds over that stretch. Thornwell doesn't look like he'll be much of a fantasy option during the last week of the season, even with Orlando likely to still be without multiple key players in their final four games.

The Pelicans elected not to re-sign Thornwell after his second 10-day contract expired over the weekend, Andrew Lopez of ESPN.com reports.
EDGE Analysis
Had New Orleans elected to retain Thornwell, he would have had to sign a rest-of-season deal, but the team deciding keeping an extra roster spot open was a greater priority in advance of Thursday's trade deadline. If the Pelicans still have a roster opening in the aftermath of the deadline, team could revisit bringing Thornwell back. The fourth-year wing has appeared in 14 games with New Orleans this season, averaging 1.2 points in 5.2 minutes per contest.
