Fox: Thornton out indefinitely 

December, 28, 2011
ATHENS, Ga. -- Georgia coach Mark Fox shared good news and bad news concerning sophomore forward Marcus Thornton after Tuesday’s 92-86 overtime win against Winthrop.

The good news is that he expects Thornton to play again this season after undergoing surgery Tuesday morning on the knee he injured early in a Dec. 23 win against Furman. The bad news is that he doesn’t know how long Thornton -- the Bulldogs’ leading rebounder at 5.8 per game -- will be sidelined.

“He will return at some point,” said Fox, who said the surgery was a success and that Thornton’s injury was less severe than originally thought. “But I don’t know when.”
