Carolina Preparing Without Marshall
The good news is, Kendall Marshall will travel to St. Louis with the team as they prepare to face Ohio on Friday. The bad news, Roy Williams is preparing as though Marshall will not play.
It appears that the team will turn to Stilman White and Justin Watts in the event Marshall cannot play. “We'll try to get them a tremendous amount of repetitions Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday in practice and see if we can get them up to speed, because our preparation is 100 percent to play without Kendall." Coach Williams said.
Stilman White has played sparingly but has been solid with the basketball the minutes he has played. In his limited time, White has 19 assists to only 5 turnovers. Justin Watts is a 6'5" versitale player. But neither have played the kind of minutes at point guard that they may see on Friday.
As far as Kendall Marshall goes, his Father advised that he is "doing much better" and is experiencing less pain today, a day after surgery.
