C - DAL
Boban Marjanovic scored seven points (3-11 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-1 FT) to go along with 12 rebounds and one block over 17 minutes in the Mavericks 111-97 defeat at the hands of the 76ers on Thursday.
Marjanovic drew his first start of the season as Kristaps Porzingis missed his third-straight game with lower back tightness. Joel Embiid kept Marjanovic quiet on the offensive end of the floor but he was able to haul in 12 rebounds. It was still a disappointing performance for those that streamed the big man in DFS. He's typically a reliable play when locked into a starting role and would be worth streaming again on Saturday vs. the Nets if Kristaps Porzingis were to miss his fourth-straight game.
Boban Marjanovic provided 10 points (5-7 FG), eight rebounds, and one assist over 13 minutes in the Mavericks 110-107 win over the Celtics on Tuesday.
Marjanovic hadn't played since February 4th and played an efficient game on Tuesday. He shot 71.4-percent from the field, scoring 10 points in just 13 minutes played. It's anyone's guess as to when the big man will play double digit minutes again, and for that reason, he can be left on the waiver wire.
Boban Marjanovic put up 15 points (6-11 FG, 3-4 FT) with 12 rebounds over 19 minutes in the Mavericks 133-108 loss to the Rockets on Saturday.
This was easily Marjanovic's best game of the year as it was most minutes played, points scored, and rebounds he's locked in all season. Kristaps Porzingis had the night off to rest his surgically repaired knee so that can explain why Marjanovic played so much. He simply doesn't play enough on a regular basis to occupy a roster spot in standard fantasy leagues.
Boban Marjanovic put up 12 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds across 16 minutes as the Mavericks beat the Nuggets 124-117 in overtime on Thursday.
Marjanovic played a season-high 16 minutes, mainly to help defend Nikola Jokic, who had a monster game himself. Marjanovic was still able to score a season-high 12 points for his efforts, though. Entering Thursday, he was averaging just seven minutes a game so there's really no fantasy upside here.
Boban Marjanovic got the start for a resting Kristaps Porzingis Thursday and scored 18 points on 9-of-14 shooting, to go along with a career-high 20 rebounds, three assists, and three turnovers.
Free Boban! When he starts, and faces off against a team with a traditional big man, he becomes an unstoppable force. He's now put up 20 and nine and 18 and 20 in two starts since play resumed. Dallas draws a first round matchup against the Clippers, who do have a traditional center in Ivica Zubac, so Marjanovic could see some run off the bench, but don't expect him to play heavy minutes once the playoffs begin.
