We study the threshold behavior of two-dimensional Schrödinger operators with finitely many local point interactions. We show that the resolvent can either be continuously extended up to the threshold, in which case we say that the operator is of regular type, or it has singularities associated with s or p-wave resonances or even with an embedded eigenvalue at zero, for whose existence we give necessary and sufficient conditions. An embedded eigenvalue at zero may appear only if we have at least three centers. When the operator is of regular type, we prove that the wave operators are bounded in Lp(R 2) for all 1 < p < ∞. With a single center, we always are in the regular type case.
