76ers head coach Brett Brown said that Kendall Marshall (right knee) is at least a month away from getting back on the basketball court.
With Marshall and Tony Wroten (knee) expected to begin the regular-season on the sidelines, Isaiah Canaan should have no problem securing the starting point guard position in Philly. However, once everyone is healthy, this situation could become a mess. Unless you're a fan of headaches, we'd recommend avoiding the point guard situation in Philadelphia. Oct 8 - 7:04 PM

Kendall Marshall (right knee) could be back on the court towards the end of October, according to 76ers beat writer Tom Moore.

Marshall will be joining a very crowded rotation in Philly featuring Tony Wroten (knee), Isaiah Canaan, and Pierre Jackson (groin), and it's anyone's guess right now who will wind up starting. Marshall had a nice season with the Lakers back in 2013, compiling averages of 8.0 points, 8.8 assists and 1.3 three-pointers per game, however he needed 28.9 minutes per game to accumulate those statistics, which could be tough to come by with three other guys vying for minutes. He's also coming off an ACL tear, so he's not worth much more than a late-round flier in deep leagues.

Kendall Marshall (right knee) will not play in Tuesday's preseason game vs. the Wizards.

Marshall had reportedly been cleared to do "everything" on September 28, so it would seem his absence from tonight's game is more precautionary than anything. The 76ers tend to be extremely cautious in bringing guys back from injuries, and given that Marshall is recovering from a pretty severe ACL tear, he'll likely be eased back into things. That being said, he has a shot at starting for the 76ers with Tony Wroten also recovering from an ACL tear, so he's worth a late-round target in deep leagues.

Kendall Marshall (knee) has been cleared to do "everything."

While there is still some pain in the area, that's part of Marshall's recovery. With Tony Wroten (knee) behind him in the recovery process, it's very conceivable that Marshall could start on opening night for the Sixers. If he earns that role, Marshall would be worth a roster spot for his ability to rack up dimes in a heartbeat.
Sep 28 - 1:52 PM

Sixers head coach Brett Brown said Kendall Marshall will be ready before Tony Wroten.

With the Sixers starting point guard role up for grabs, this news would seemingly give Marshall a leg up on Wroten. We'll keep an eye on this situation throughout the preseason, but Marshall would make for a solid late-round flier if he's able to secure the starting job, as he's capable of racking up assists in bunches.
Sep 24 - 1:22 PM

Coach Brett Brown said Kendall Marshall (knee) can "pass the hell out of the ball."

The team is hopeful he can be ready before November due to his ACL tear back in January. Marshall is actually a solid fit for the 76ers, but it's not going to be easy to stash him with so many questions. His arrival does lower the fantasy value for Tony Wroten (knee) and Isaiah Canaan.
Sep 23 - 2:31 PM

Kendall Marshall (knee) will "definitely" not be ready for the start of the season.

Marhshall is still recovering from ACL surgery, so this isn't a surprise. The 76ers signed him to a four-year deal, so there is no need to rush him back and he could miss a month or two of the season. Point guard is a glaring weakness for Philly right now (along with several other positions), so Marshall could eventually challenge Tony Wroten for the starting duties. He is worth keeping an eye on if you are looking for assists.

Kendall Marshall (knee) is unlikely to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Marshall will help provide the Sixers with veteran point guard depth when he's fully recovered from ACL surgery, but it sounds like he won't be available for the season opener. While solid is a solid late-round flier for his ability to put up assists, he'll be stuck battling Tony Wroten for a spot in the starting lineup and his fantasy value will take a hit if he doesn't win that battle.
Sep 10 - 10:42 AM

Kendall Marshall's deal with the 76ers is reportedly a four-year pact worth more than the minimum.

Only the first season is guaranteed but this is still a significant signing by the Sixers, who have been loathe to commit to players over the past few years. Marshall tore his ACL in January and it's unclear whether he'll be ready to start the season, but we'll have a clearer picture of his health once training camp begins. Once healthy, Marshall stands a good chance to earn the starting PG job ahead of Tony Wroten and Isaiah Canaan.

Sixers sign G Kendall Marshall.

Tony Wroten (knee) is fully expected to get the bulk of the point guard minutes, but Marshall is an interesting fit with the projected starters. He can run a pick-and-roll better than Wroten and is a much better shooter. Fantasy owners will want to keep an eye on him as a potential late-round pick.
Sep 9 - 6:55 PM

The 76ers are finalizing a multi-year deal with Kendall Marshall.

The 76ers have by far the worst situation at point guard. Last month, there was talk of it being Tony Wroten's job to lose, but maybe now Marshall can push him. Schematically, the 76ers would like a 3-point shooting point guard to go with Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor. Marshall's 3-point stroke really improved, especially in 2013-14 when he made 40 percent of his 178 attempts. He's on the radar in standard leagues, but he still has to get over his ACL tear. He is expected to be ready for camp, though.
Sep 4 - 6:26 PM

Kendall Marshall has been at the 76ers' practice facility the past few days and at this point it seems likely that he will get a training camp invite with the club, according to sources of Jake Fischer.

If Marshall does receive a camp invite from the Sixers, he would be the team's 20th and final player at training camp. Marshall is more than capable of being the starting point guard on a bad team, as he averaged 8.0 points, 8.8 assists and 1.3 three-pointers per game through 54 games with the Lakers during the 2013-14 season. Assuming he makes the squad in Philadelphia, he'd be well worth a late-round selection on draft day for owners looking to shore up the assist category.
Sep 2 - 11:28 AM

The 76ers have reportedly expressed interest in free agent G Kendall Marshall.

While Marshall is far from a superstar, he may actually be able to carve out a role on the Sixers. The dominos would have to fall perfectly into place for Marshall to provide any fantasy value, but he did average 8.8 assists per game with the Lakers in 2013-14 and is worth monitoring if he lands in Philadelphia.
Sep 1 - 1:50 PM

Flip Saunders said that there have been no conversations between the Wolves and free agent point guard Kendall Marshall.

The Wolves are pretty much set at point guard with Ricky Rubio, Zach LaVine and Tyus Jones all under contract, so it wouldn't make a lot of sense for them to go after Marshall. Currently recovering from a torn ACL that he suffered in January, Marhsall's rehab has reportedly been going well and he should be ready to go in time for NBA training camps. Unless he ends up in an ideal situation, Marshall isn't on the fantasy radar.
Jul 26 - 9:22 AM

Free agent point guard Kendall Marshall (knee) is reportedly on the Timberwolves' radar.

Marshall is currently rehabbing from a torn ACL that he suffered in January, but the expectation is that he will be ready in time for NBA training camps. The Wolves are concerned about Marshall's knee, so a deal isn't imminent by any means. The Wolves' backcourt is pretty crowded at the moment, so Marshall wouldn't be a factor in fantasy leagues if he ended up in Minnesota.
