    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Turns ball over five times in win

    Marshall played 20 minutes in Saturday's 103-98 win over the Nets, producing four points (2-5 FG), three assists, one steal, and five turnovers across 20 minutes. Marshall, the Sixers' third-string point guard, only entered the rotation due to the absence of Ish Smith (ankle), and finished with his most playing time since Dec. 23. As the awful assist-to-turnover ratio illustrates, Marshall simply doesn't appear to be an NBA-caliber point guard at this time, and will likely see his role dissolve completely if Smith returns to action Monday against the Clippers as expected.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Not seeing time as third-string point guard

    Marshall (coach's decision) didn't play in Wednesday's 96-87 win over the Magic. Although coach Brett Brown was initially counting on Marshall to claim the starting role at point guard upon returning from a torn ACL in December, the 24-year-old's ineffectiveness ultimately led the team to trade for Ish Smith, who has been a godsend since arriving from New Orleans. Since Smith's acquisition, Marshall has also been passed up on the depth chart by T.J. McConnell, who has excelled in a backup capacity, leaving no minutes available for Marshall. As a result, Marshall, who hasn't played in five of the team's last six games, will likely require a Smith or McConnell injury before reclaiming a rotation spot.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Plays four minutes Monday after losing starting role

    Marshall played only four minutes in Monday's 95-91 loss to the Jazz, scoring two points (1-2 FG). Marshall was anointed as the 76ers' starting point guard shortly after making his season debut earlier this month following his recovery from a torn ACL, but after a string of lackluster performances, the team elected to cut bait with the experiment. Ish Smith was acquired from the Pelicans on Dec. 24 and has immediately been inserted into the starting lineup over the last two games, leaving Marshall and T.J. McConnell to pick up the spare minutes behind him. Smith exploded for 22 points and 11 assists in Monday's contest, and those outstanding numbers should give him plenty of security in the starting role. As a result, Marshall will have to settle for limited duty going forward and isn't a worthwhile option in deep leagues at this point.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Resting Tuesday

    Marshall will rest Tuesday against the Grizzlies with the intention of playing Wednesday in Milwaukee, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Marshall still hasn't been cleared to take part in both ends of back-to-back sets, thereby allowing Tony Wroten another start at the point. However, expect Marshall to fill that role Wednesday.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Plays 18 minutes Sunday

    Marshall managed eight points (3-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, and two rebounds in 18 minutes during the 76ers' 108-86 loss versus the Cavaliers on Sunday. Marshall is averaging 4.0 points (41.2 FG, 28.6 3Pt), 4.5 assists, 1.3 rebounds, and 0.8 steals in 17 minutes per game through four games. 76ers' coach Brett Brown stated that the starting spot is Marshall's to lose, and it will be interesting to see what kinds of stat-lines he produces once he is able to play more than 20 minutes, which has been his restriction thus far this season. Marshall, Tony Wroten, and T.J. McConnell essentially split the minutes available at point guard on Sunday, but if Wroten spends more time at the two it's possible Marshall could soon be seeing a healthy load of minutes as the 76ers' lead ball-handler.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Will start at point guard

    Marshall has been named the 76ers' starting point guard, and the job is his to lose, per coach Brett Brown, KL Chouinard of reports. Marshall made his season debut Friday against Detroit, putting up five points and six assists in 16 minutes, and he followed with two points and five assists in 20 minutes Saturday in Toronto. After being rested Monday in Chicago, Marshall will return as the starter, likely pushing Tony Wroten to the bench. It sounds as though the Sixers will give Marshall ample opportunity to serve as the starter long-term, meaning T.J. McConnell's playing time is likely to take a major hit, as both players have similar skill sets. When healthy, Marshall has proven to be one of the better passers in the league, though he struggles defensively and is far from an elite athlete. From a fantasy perspective, he projects to be a strong source for assists but won't provide much in terms of scoring or rebounding.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Will sit out Monday for rest

    Marshall (rest) will sit out Monday's game against the Bulls, Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. With Marshall not yet cleared to play in both halves of back-to-back sets while he works his way back to full speed following a torn ACL suffered last January, he'll sit out Monday after logging 20 minutes in Sunday's loss to the Raptors. Like Marshall, fellow point guard Tony Wroten has also recently returned from a torn ACL and hasn't been cleared to play back-to-back games, so after sitting Sunday, Wroten will assume Marshall's minutes in Monday's contest.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Will be on minutes restriction Sunday

    Marshall will be on another 16-minute restriction for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer reports. Marshall made his season debut on Friday, scoring five points, while also adding six assists and a rebound over 16 minutes. He'll again be on a 16-minute restriction, which limits his potential fantasy impact. Tony Wroten (rest) is set to sit this game out, so look for Marshall to backup T.J. McConnell at point guard. Marshall will likely continue to see a minutes restriction in the near future until he feels completely comfortable with his knee and has his legs back under him.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Solid in season debut Friday

    Marshall (knee) scored five points (2-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt), dishes six assists, and grabbed one rebound in 16 minutes during the 76ers' 107-95 loss versus the Pistons on Friday. Marshall's 16 minute limit was announced on Wednesday. Meanwhile, Tony Wroten (knee) sat out the second night of the 76ers' back-to-back as part of the team's plan to ease him back into the lineup. The 76ers' back-court is undeniably crowded with Wroten, T.J. McConnell, and Isaiah Canaan all in the mix for minutes at point guard, but the fact that Marshall started in his season debut makes him a good candidate to earn the most time at his position once he is fully healthy.

    76ers' Kendall Marshall: Will start Friday

    Marshall (knee) will start Friday against the Pistons, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. It ends up that not only with Marshall make his season debut, but also start for the 76ers. Despite the start, head coach Brett Brown said Marshall will be limited 16 minutes as he makes his way back into the flow of the game.
