Kendall Marshall drops double-digit dimes, again, as he finished with eight points, three rebounds, 14 assists, a steal, and only one turnover in 27 minutes of Friday's loss to the Nuggets.
Marshall dished out double-digit dimes for fourth time in five games and for the the 18th time in 35 games this season (26 starts). Rumors were swirling that Marshall would lose his starting job to Jordan Farmar, but that now seems like just hearsay as he has continued to start since those rumors surfaced. If someone panicked and dropped Marshall scoop him up asap.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Julio Jones did not practice Monday.
Jones is still dealing with a lingering hamstring injury and while he was able to play Sunday, there is concern this week with the short turnaround for the Thursday game. Consider him day-to-day and stay on top of all the latest news before making your final lineup decision. Analysis: Howard Bender
Cecil Shorts thinks he'll play against Jacksonville.
Shorts missed Thursday's game with a shoulder injury but both he and the team believe that he will be able to play this week. With DeAndre Hopkins being the clear-cut No. 1 and with the emergence of Jalen Strong and Keith Mumphrey, it's difficult to see Shorts getting enough work to be a productive fantasy play. He'll still see a few targets if he's on the field, but he'll be hit-or-miss. Analysis: Howard Bender
