He'll need to take full advantage. When X comes back he should never be point guard again, if Farmar and Marshall are healthy. Health is the key this season as our margin of error wasn't that big to begin with. No more injuries or sicknesses or stepped on lego's please!
X will be missing 5 games at minimum
Milwaukee, Utah, Denver, and then @ Dallas and @ Houston
That's at minimum! So Marshall has about 5 games to show what he can do. Farmar was also experiencing tightness in his calf today so didn't practice(as a precaution) but will be playing tomorrow. Marshall's gonna need to play well to spell Farmar's minutes. Did see some hope last night with D'antoni giving Marshall come extra time in the 4th quarter before bringing in Farmar to score(which he did). So hopefully Marshall can get 17 or so minutes again. Of course he'll have to play well, I don't expect 8 points again, but I want the assist numbers to go up.
That way when X returns he can be off ball and cutting like he always should have been.
