Marjanovic isn't in Monday's starting five against the Warriors, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Marjanovic is set to take on a bench role for the second straight game with Marcin Gortat slated to get the start at center. Although Marjanovic appeared to be in a good position to take hold of the starting job, Gortat has worked his way back into the rotation. The two big men are likely to battle each other for playing time moving forward.
Marjanovic will play a reserve role in Saturday's matchup with the Bucks, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.
Marjanovic replaced Marcin Gortat at center the previous three games, with the latter being a healthy scratch. However, the Bucks deploy Brook Lopez at center who is unique big man, as he is mainly a three-point specialist. Thus, it is not a good matchup for Marjanovic given his lack of athleticism. He will presumably continue to start in favorable matchups, but this is not one of them.
The big man drew another start at the five and continued to produce extremely well on a per-minute basis. Marjanovic has generated three straight double-digit scoring efforts, including a pair of double-doubles, and the career-high 13.0 minutes per contest he's logging has led to averages of 9.1 points, 5.9 rebounds and 1.0 block -- all career bests -- over the first 10 games. With Marcin Gortat seemingly out of the rotation for the moment, Marjanovic has a chance to continue racking up similar production for the time being, though the 7-foot-3 big man's playing time will likely be more limited when the Clippers oppose centers capable of stretching the floor.
Marjonovic will start at center Monday against the Timberwolves, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.
Marcin Gortat (undisclosed) appears to be out yet again, so Marjanovic draws another start for the Clippers. He's put up solid numbers so far this season, averaging 23.8 points, 12.2 rebounds, 4.8 assists and 3.5 blocks over 37.5 minutes per contest (six games).
Marjanovic scored 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-6 FT) while adding 11 rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes during Friday's 120-95 win over the Magic.
It's the 30-year-old's second straight double-double, as Marjanovic takes full advantage of Marcin Gortat's absence due to an undisclosed injury. His offensive upside is limited, but Marjanovic should continue to be a threat for solid numbers on the glass as long as he's seeing significant minutes.
