Marcus Thornton Out 1-2 Weeks With Hematoma In Quad

New, comments

According to Jason Jones, the Sacramento Kings have announced that Marcus Thornton will miss 1-2 weeks with a hematoma in that battered quad that has cost him a few games. The injury had previously been diagnosed as a contusion, but apparently it's a bit worse and needs some time away from the inconsiderate knees and arms of the NBA.

That could mean more John Salmons at two-guard or additional time for Jimmer Fredette and Isaiah Thomas or all of the above. It was likely this injury diagnosis that in part led the Kings to recall Tyler Honeycutt from the NBA D-League. If any of the rotation wings go down, the Kings get pretty light.

I do not encourage you to Google Image "hematoma."
