Marjanovic will come off the bench for Saturday's game against the Nets.
With Kristaps Porzingis returning to the lineup, Marjanovic will head back to the bench and assume his usual reserve role Saturday. While he did manage to grab 12 rebounds in Dallas' last game, his standalone fantasy value continues to be minimal.
Marjanovic added seven points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 12 rebounds and one block over 17 minutes during Thursday's loss to the 76ers.
Getting the start in place of the injured Kristaps Porzingis (back) Marjanovic managed to grab double-digit boards for the second time this season. Despite getting the start, Marjanovic still couldn't top the 20-minute mark. His fantasy value continues to remain minimal.
Marjanovic will start Thursday's game against the 76ers, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.
With Kristaps Porzingis (back) missing another game, Marjanovic will remain in the rotation after he played 13 minutes and finished with 10 points and eight boards in Tuesday's win over Boston. It will be the first start of the season for Marjanovic, who will be tasked with slowing down MVP candidate Joel Embiid.
Marjanovic turned in 10 points (5-7 FG), eight rebounds and one assist across 13 minutes Tuesday in the Mavericks' 110-107 win over the Celtics.
With Kristaps Porzingis (back) out, head coach Rick Carlisle turned to Marjanovic for the first time in seven games to counter the Celtics' big frontcourt. As is usually the case when he's given playing time, Marjanovic put up strong per-minute numbers, but his usage is expected to remain mostly situational. Marjanovic hasn't logged more than 20 minutes in any game this season, and he's gotten off the bench only twice since the calendar flipped to February.
Marjanovic produced 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 FT and 12 rebounds, across 19 minutes in Saturday's 133-108 loss to the Rockets.
With Kristaps Porzingis sitting out, Marjanovic got to work, which he's often done before, but not with the same frequency as when the team was in the Orlando bubble. There's no way to determine when the team will elect to give Marjanovic a run, making him a frustrating option in fantasy formats. When he gets his opportunity, he's an FP-per-minute threat, but unfortunately, he doesn't see enough court time to be relevant.
Marjanovic posted 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 16 minutes in Thursday's 124-117 overtime win over the Nuggets.
Marjanovic excelled in the Orlando bubble when Kristaps Porzingis was absent, but he's not being utilized as much in 2021. He's had two DNP-CD designations already this season, and it appears that his future production will remain scant. Still, his imposing 7-foot-4 frame is a size mismatch for any team, and he can stretch the floor with a decent mid-range jumper.
Marjanovic scored six points (3-4 FG, 0-0 3Pt. 0-0 FT) and added a rebound in seven minutes of Friday's 138-115 loss to the Lakers.
Marjanovic saw his first action of the season after having sat out the opener against Phoenix. He played fewer minutes than fellow centers Dwight Powell and Willie Cauley-Stein sat out the season opener and likely will continue to do so as the trio attempts to fill the void while Kristaps Porzingis (knee) is out.
Marjanovic totaled 13 points (6-8 FG, 1-1 FT), nine rebounds and one assist in just 10 minutes during Wednesday's 127-114 victory over the Clippers.
Marjanovic was used sparingly, but he still managed to make a noticeable impact. He certainly has the ability to put up numbers in a hurry, and based on what we've seen thus far, he should continue seeing some action off the bench.
Marjanovic scored 18 points (9-14 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 0-1 FT) while adding 20 rebounds and three assists in 29 minutes during Thursday's 128-102 loss to the Suns.
Getting the start in place of Kristaps Porzingis (heel), Marjanovic dominated the glass. In two bubble games with Porzingis not on the floor, Marjanovic averaged an impressive 19.0 points, 14.5 boards, 2.5 assists and 1.0 blocks,. However, he failed to top seven minutes in any of his other five contests in Orlando, highlighting the situational nature of his fantasy value.
Marjanovic had 20 points (7-11 FG, 0-1 3PT, 6-6 FT) and nine rebounds in Monday's win over the Jazz.
Starting in place of Kristaps Porzingis, Marjanovic played a bubble-high 25 minutes and rewarded those who took a flyer on him in DFS contests. Marjanovic also added two assists, two blocks and a steal.
Marjanovic will start Monday's game against Utah, Brad Townsend of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Marjanovic will come off the bench Saturday against the Bucks, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Marjanovic is expected to start Thursday's game against the Clippers, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.
With Seth Curry (leg) out, the Mavs will apparently go with a super-sized lineup featuring Marjanovic at center and Kristaps Porzingis at the four. Marjanovic has played a total of just 18 minutes through the Mavs' first three seeding games.
Marjanovic ended with 17 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 13 rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in 24 minutes during Thursday's 108-104 scrimmage victory over the Lakers.
Marjanovic played 24 minutes off the bench Thursday, turning in a fantastic performance. With the Mavericks down on troops heading into the seeding games, Marjanovic could have sneaky value if he can maintain a serviceable role. It is unlikely he will be this good on most nights but even with 18 or so minutes, Marjanovic could be worth a late-round flier.
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.
