After being sent down to the Erie BayHawks of the NBA's Developmental League, Orlando Magic swing man Devyn Marble returned to the team on Wednesday in advance of their game against the Houston Rockets. Marble, who was sent down on November 30th, played in eight games of the BayHawks, averaging 13.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.6 steals per game, while shooting 35.6 percent from the field.
Marble's return comes on schedule, according to Magic coach Scott Skiles. Skiles said that the plan was to send Marble down during the team's West Coast road trip, and to give him some more time down there before bringing him back to Orlando. Skiles also said he felt as though the second-year man was "fair" during his stint with the BayHawks.
Recalling Marble gives the Magic some more depth at the guard spots, with C.J. Watson still dealing with a nagging calf injury. Marble will likely not see much time on the floor, however, with the Magic's rotation relatively set at this time.
