The Los Angeles Lakers, who have been hit by a number of injuries to their backcourt, signed guard Kendall Marshall to a multi-year contract, the team announced Friday.
He has been playing for the Delaware 87ers of the NBA Development League since Dec. 3.
The Lakers need help in the backcourt with Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Kobe Bryant all expected to be sidelined with injuries for at least another month. Bryant is likely to be out six weeks with a broken bone in his knee.
Officially, it will be a game-time decision whether Carter-Williams plays Friday. But Carter-Williams told CBSPhilly.com that he expects to play.
Pondexter injured his foot during a Dec. 7 loss to the Golden State Warriors.
