Marshall will start in Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Sixers' Director of Public Relations Michael Preston reports. Marshall is starting due to Nic Stauskas (knee) being held out. Marshall figures to see a minutes increase in what is the Sixers season finale.
Marshall missed all three of his field-goal attempts (0-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) while committing one turnover in nine minutes during the 76ers' 117-105 loss to the Warriors on Sunday. Marshall went scoreless in back-to-back bouts this weekend while handing out two assists to two turnovers. Through six March appearances, he is averaging 2.7 points and 1.5 assists in 12 minutes per game.
Marshall had four points (2-3 FG), two assists, one rebound, and one block in 19 minutes during the 76ers' 131-114 loss to the Nets on Tuesday. Marshall had as many turnovers as he did assists, but he has appeared in two straight games now following a brief absence with an upper-respiratory illness. The 76ers simply have too many point guards for Marshall to make much of a dent in box scores. However, coach Brett Brown has shown he is willing to pair two of them together at any given time, so it's not like Marshall is buried on the bench.
Marshall has been cleared to play against the Rockets on Wednesday, Johnathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports. Marshall was dealing with an illness that kept him out of two games over the weekend. He returned to practice on Tuesday and appeared to be at full strength. Marshall will most likely see limited minutes if any as he sits behind T.J. McConnell and Ish Smith on the depth chart at point guard.
Marshall (illness) was took part in Tuesday's practice and should be available to play Wednesday against the Rockets, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. With both Marshall and Nik Stauskas present for practice Tuesday after missing the team's last two games with upper-respiratory illnesses, the presumption is that the duo is now fully healthy. Marshall will likely struggle to see the court in his return Wednesday, as he ranks a firm third on the team's depth chart at point guard.
