Marjanovic exploded for 31 points (12-20 FG, 7-8 FT), 17 rebounds, two steals and an assist in 31 minutes during the Mavericks' 113-97 win over the Nuggets on Wednesday.
Setting a season high for minutes and a career high for points, Marjanovic destroyed the Nuggets while starting at center in place of a resting Kristaps Porzingis. This was only his second start of the season, and it's not out of the question for him to fall back out of the rotation for games in which Porzingis is available. The performance at least provides another illustration of Marjanovic's ability to rack up stats when he's given playing time, though his massive 7-foot-4, 290-pound frame makes him unplayable against lineups with smaller, more agile centers.
Marjanovic is in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Nuggets, Mike Peasley of the Dallas Mavericks Radio Network reports.
Kristaps Porzingis (rest) and Dorian Finney-Smith (hip) are both out Wednesday, so the 7-foot-3 Serbian will join the starting five. Marjanovic had nine points, five rebounds, two assists, one steal and one block in 16 minutes during his only previous start this season.
Marjanovic tallied 14 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt), 12 rebounds, one steal and one block in 22 minutes during Monday's 109-107 loss to the Bulls.
This game marks the first time since Jan. 14 that Marjanovic has logged 20-plus minutes, and he rewarded the team with his fourth double-double through 33 appearances this season. He recorded a career-best six double-doubles across 58 games in 2018-19, and while Dwight Powell (Achilles) being out for the remainder of the campaign leaves the door of opportunity slightly ajar for Marjanovic, the 31-year-old center's boosted playing time in this one was due to the absence of Kristaps Porzingis (rest).
Marjanovic is inactive for Friday's game against the Magic, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.
While Marjanovic often doesn't see the court due to DNP-CDs, it's rare for him to be a healthy scratch ahead of time. His next chance to play arrives Saturday against the Hawks.
Marjanovic had 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds, two blocks and one steal in 16 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 110-107 loss against the Clippers.
Marjanovic has received four DNP designations over Dallas' last eight contests, but he could be in line for an extended run of minutes following Dwight Powell's Achilles injury. He has averaged 12.8 points and 7.3 rebounds in 13.5 minutes per game over his last four contests, however, and he could become an enticing fantasy alternative if he receives more playing time moving forward.
Marjanovic totaled 13 points (6-14 FG, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds and one steal in 20 minutes during Tuesday's 124-99 victory over the Warriors.
Marjanovic dominated during garbage time, recording his second double-double in under a week. This was only the second time this season Marjanovic has played at least 20 minutes, highlighting why he is impossible to trust in competitive leagues.
Marjanovic finished with 14 points (5-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and 10 rebounds in 10 minutes during Friday's 129-114 loss to the Lakers.
Marjanovic needed only 10 minutes to record his second double-double of the season. He continues to be one of the elite per-minute performers in the league but unfortunately, he is not even an every night part of the rotation. Alas, there is also no way of predicting when he will see the court and so streaming him in can prove difficult.
Marjanovic posted 15 points (6-7 FG, 3-4 FT), 16 rebounds, two assists and two blocks in a blowout win over the Pelicans on Saturday.
Marjanovic was unleashed, topping his season-highs in points, rebounds and blocks. The Mavericks were winning in a blowout in this one, which is likely a contributing factor to the big man seeing 23 minutes. His playing time has been too inconsistent to rely on him in anything other than the deepest of leagues at this point.
Marjanovic did not see the floor in Wednesday's 121-114 victory over Minnesota.
The 31-year-old was held out a second straight game, something he hadn't done since Nov. 18. Marjanovic has played in only nine of 21 games, so fans of the 7-foot-3 center shouldn't hold their breath about seeing him on a frequent basis.
Marjanovic registered nine points (4-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), six rebounds, an assist and a steal in Friday's 143-101 victory over Cleveland.
The 7-foot-3 center made the most of it, earning four buckets from inside the paint. Despite having played in just seven of the Mavs' 15 games, the 31-year-old has established career-best averages in that span (7.7 points and 5.3 rebounds per game). But from a fantasy perspective, the 31-year-old will likely to continue offering limited value as he trails behind centers Dwight Powell and Maxi Kleber on the depth chart.
Marjanovic ended with nine points (3-5 FG, 3-3 FT), five rebounds, two assists, two steals, and one block in 16 minutes during Saturday's 138-122 victory over the Grizzlies.
Marjanovic moved into the starting lineup with Kristaps Porzingis (rest) given the night off. Despite starting the game, Marjanovic played just 16 minutes but was able to contribute across the board. He is one of the better per-minute producers but typically fails to see enough court time to warrant a standard league roster spot. He is fine to stream in on those nights Porzingis is out but that is where he relevance ends.
Marjanovic will draw the start Saturday against the Grizzlies.
Marjanovic will make his first start of the season, and it will mark just his fourth appearance. In 12 starts last season, he averaged 9.2 points, 6.9 rebounds and 1.9 assists in 17.8 minutes.
Marjanovic totaled 12 points (6-11 FG, 0-1 FT), and eight rebounds in 15 minutes during Sunday's 131-111 victory over Cleveland.
Marjanovic played 15 minutes in Sunday's victory, falling two rebounds short of a double-double. Maxi Kleber (knee) sat this game out which allowed Marjanovic to slide into the rotation. He is a great per-minute guy but typically plays only a few minutes at the most. If Kleber misses additional time, Marjanovic could be worth streaming in if you need big man stats.
Mrjanovic produced 16 points (6-9 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT) and eight rebounds across 16 minutes in Friday's 118-111 loss to the Bucks.
Marjanovic now finds himself with his fifth team in four seasons. With Kristaps Porzingis poised to dominate the center role in Dallas this year, it doesn't look like the towering 7-3 Serbian product is in line for more playing time than he's received elsewhere, but he looked good coming off the bench on Friday.
Marjanovic has agreed to a two-year, $7 million contract with the Mavericks, Mark Stein of The New York Times reports.
Marjanovic played for both the Clippers and 76ers last season, starting 12 of his 58 appearances. Overall, he averaged 7.3 points and 4.6 rebounds in just 11.7 minutes. Marjanovic will likely continue to occupy a similar role with the Mavericks, with Dwight Powell, Maxi Kleber and Kristaps Porzingis all presumably ahead of him on the depth chart.
Marjanovic managed one rebound in one minute during Monday's 94-89 Game 2 win against the Raptors.
Marjanovic had earned double-digit minutes in each of the first six playoff games. Nevertheless, it's clear 76ers coach Brett Brown decided to go in another direction, as 31-year-old veteran Amir Johnson made his first appearance this postseason and received more playing time (three minutes) than Marjanovic even after fellow backup big man Greg Monroe sprained his left ankle in the third quarter. Even if Monroe remains sidelined for Thursday's Game 3 there's no guarantee Marjanovic will benefit, as Jonah Bolden (nine minutes) represents another more mobile option.
Marjanovic produced 16 points (8-14 FG), eight rebounds, one assist, and one block in 18 minutes during Monday's 145-123 Game 2 win over the Nets.
Marjanovic kept finding himself open, particularly from mid-range, and so he continued to splash away. He has played well while Joel Embiid (knee) has combined to earn 45 minutes across the first two games of this series. Furthermore, if Embiid continues to receive somewhat limited minutes, Marjanovic appears to be the backup big man coach Brett Brown trusts most.
Marjanovic totaled 18 points (8-12 FG, 2-3 3Pt), eight rebounds, six assists and two blocks across 25 minutes in the 76ers' win over the Bulls on Wednesday.
Marjanovic was fantastic in relief of Joel Embiid (knee), stuffing the stat sheet and even draining a pair of triples. He's been highly productive on a per-minute basis, and he's always a valuable play when Embiid misses time.
Marjanovic will start Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Bulls, Paul Hudrick of NBCS Philadelphia reports.
Marjanovic, with a myriad of players resting, will make his first start since Feb. 23. Across 11 prior starts this season, he's averaged 8.4 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 17.1 minutes.
Marjanovic finished with 16 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds and an assist in 18 minutes during Thursday's tilt with the Nets.
Marjanovic found success against a porous Nets frontline, parlaying a bump in minutes to his highest point total since December 11th. Although Marjanovic is incredibly productive when given minutes, he only averages 11.3 minutes of court time per game because of his propensity to be exploited on defense. Due to his limited role, the Marjanovic isn't an option unless Joel Embiid isn't playing.
