After suffering an injury to their fourth different point guard, this one a de facto point guard, the Lakers finally brought in a natural point guard.

After Kobe Bryant was announced to be out six weeks with a fractured bone near his knee, the Lakers were without a choice in bringing in a natural point guard. As it stands, Xavier Henry will likely start at point guard for the Lakers tomorrow when they host the Timberwolves.
Marshall’s one year in the league with the Suns saw him average 3 points and 3 assists a game. He has since spent the season in the D-League, averaging a far more respectable 19.4 points and 9.6 assists on 41.9% field goal shooting.
Marshall will likely be thrown in to the rotation head first, with Jordan Farmar not set to return for another week.
