Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Sniffs double-double from bench
Marshall racked up 14 points (6-12 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and three steals over 28 minutes during Monday's 114-112 loss to the Jazz.
The box score fails to tell the full story behind Marshall's solid total. Although he initially took the floor to spell Zion Williamson, the Pelicans utilized a hybrid lineup without Herbert Jones until the fourth quarter, when Marshall and Jones shared the court. The variable in this scenario appears to be Dyson Daniels, who has failed to be the answer for CJ McCollum (chest), and the gap in production is one reason for the rotation changes.... See More ...

Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Solid production as reserve
Marshall contributed 12 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), six rebounds, four assists, one block and one steal across 20 minutes during Wednesday's 117-112 win over the Kings.
Marshall did a little bit of everything Wednesday, recording his second game with at least one tally in each category. He missed the first nine games of the campaign due to a knee contusion but has been a steady producer for New Orleans' second unit since making his season debut Nov. 12 versus Dallas. Marshall has scored in double figures in four of his past five appearances, averaging 11.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.0 steals in 21.8 minutes per game during that stretch. However, his playing time may take a hit when Trey Murphy (knee) and Matt Ryan (calf) are cleared to return.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Scores 16 points off bench
Marshall finished Tuesday's 131-110 win over the Mavericks with 16 points (5-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), four rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal across 21 minutes.
In his second game of the season, Marshall played a prominent bench role, even with Herbert Jones (leg) back in the mix. As long as Trey Murphy (knee) and Larry Nance (ribs) are sidelined, Marshall should have a clear path to consistent playing time. However, fantasy managers shouldn't grow too accustomed to this type of production, as the veteran averaged just 9.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 23.3 minutes across 77 appearances (21 starts) for the Pelicans last year....

Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Solid showing in season debut
Marshall (knee) tallied eight points (2-3 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and two assists across 14 minutes in Sunday's 136-124 loss to the Mavericks.
Marshall missed the Pelicans' first nine games of the season while recovering from a knee contusion before he was cleared to make his 2023-24 debut Sunday. He was a plus-4 during his limited time on the court and shot efficiently, but Marshall likely won't have a path to a larger share of the minutes at forward unless the already banged-up Pelicans lose more key players to injuries....

Marshall has yet to play during the regular season due to a knee contusion, but he should get minutes Sunday, as the Pelicans remain shorthanded.

Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Out at least two weeks
The Pelicans announced Sunday that Marshall will be re-evaluated in two weeks after suffering a bone bruise in his right knee in Saturday's 110-105 preseason loss to the Hawks.
The diagnosis comes as positive news after Marshall was taken to the locker room in a wheelchair upon suffering the injury in the second quarter Saturday. He'll miss the remainder of the preseason, and since he won't be re-evaluated for another two weeks, Marshall will remain sidelined for at least the Pelicans' firs two regular-season contests, and likely longer. The Pelicans' wing depth will be tested in the early going with both Marshall and Trey Murphy (knee) facing multi-week absences.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Suffers knee injury
Marshall was ruled out of Saturday's game against the Hawks due to a right knee injury, Christian Clark of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.
Marshall appears to have hyperextended his knee, and the Pelicans played it safe and ruled him out. Further tests will be needed to see whether he'll have to miss time, putting his availability for the regular-season opener against the Grizzlies on Oct. 25 in doubt.... See More ... See Less
Pelicans' Naji Marshall: Staying in New Orleans
The Pelicans picked up Marshall's $1.9 million team option for the 2023-24 season Thursday, Will Guillory of The Athletic reports.
Marshall is set to stay in New Orleans for his fourth straight season to start his career. In 2022-23, the 25-year-old forward averaged 9.1 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 23.3 minutes across 77 appearances, including 21 starts. Marshall has improved his field-goal percentage every season of his tenure, landing at 43.3 percent last year.... See More ... See Less
