Marshall totaled 12 points (5-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, three steals, two assists and one block in a 115-110 loss to the Grizzlies on Monday. Marshall had a solid all-around performance and recorded the second double-double of his career. The forward has taken advantage of an increased role on offense, scoring in double figures in four of his last five contests. Over that span, Marshall has averaged 10.2 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game.
Marshall will start Friday's contest against the 76ers, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports. With Brandon Ingram (ankle) sidelined, Marshall will make his fifth start of the season. In his previous four starts, he averaged 9.8 points, 6.0 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.0 steals in 29.3 minutes.
Marshall agreed to a three-year, $5.3 million contract with the Pelicans on Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The undrafted rookie had previously been on a two-way contract. He started seeing regular playing time in early April, and he's become a legitimate part of the Pelicans' rotation. He's appeared in 19 straight games and has averaged 8.6 points, 5.5 rebounds, 3.4 assists and 1.1 steals in 25.7 minutes.
Marshall posted 10 points (4-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two assists and one steal Tuesday in a 108-103 victory over the Warriors. Marshall had an impactful performance, notching two important offensive rebounds along with a key steal. The undrafted rookie has struggled shooting from the floor since being given more minutes early in April, as he's posted just a 38.8 field-goal percentage over his last 19 games. Expect him to keep seeing significant minutes for the rest of the season as the Pelicans look to evaluate how the 23-year-old fits into the future of the franchise.
Marshall had 15 points (6-15 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 1-6 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and two steals across 35 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's loss against the Nets. The 23-year-old rookie continues to impress, and while he struggled with his shot in this one, he still finished as one of the team's highest scorers while also pacing the team in dimes. Marshall, who recorded his first double-double on April 16 at Washington, has been extremely productive of late and has scored in double digits in four of his last six appearances, steadily carving a decent role as a bench weapon for New Orleans.
