Kings' Marcus Thornton won't play tonight; mother is ill

MILWAUKEE -- Kings guard Marus Thornton (personal reasons) will not play tonight against the Milwaukee Bucks.

Thornton is in Louisiana visiting his mother. She has been ill recently.

"I couldn't say but everyone thought he was unhappy with his time and how he was playing," said Kings coach Keith Smart. "And I just kind of had to go along with that knowing what was happening and see what it was doing to him."

Thornton might rejoin the team in Oklahoma City, where the Kings play Friday. Smart, however, won't rush him back.

"For me as a coach, you've got to come back when your mind is right," Smart said.
