News: Dawkins was recalled from Maine of the D-League on Thursday.

News: Thornton had 15 points (7-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt), two assists and one block in 14 minutes on Wednesday.
Impact: This is likely a random occurrence and not something to expect consistently. Thornton is averaging just 7.3 points in 16.3 minutes per game in January. He's played more than 20 minutes just four times this season.
News: Turner (thumb) had 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and six assists in 27 minutes against the Timberwolves on Wednesday.
Impact: Turner learned Monday that his thumb is sprained. It didn't seem to affect him as his Wednesday stat line was right on par with his season averages of 9.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 4.4 assists in 25 minutes per game.
