There is no timetable for the return of the 39-year-old center, coach Peter DeBoer said at practice in New Jersey Sunday, according to the Mercury News.

DeBoer said Thornton left the team for precautionary reasons.

“He had a little bit of swelling after the last game, and rather than continue on the road and risk anything with it, we’re going to take the safe route and get him home and get it looked at,” the Sharks coach said.

Thornton has had surgery to repair torn ligaments in each knee within the last year and a half.
