This is definitely a good defensive group.

Yeah, Wiggins and Morsell are as athletic and good defensively as any pair of wings in the country - even if they use Morsell as a PF. And Stix is looking good as the shot-blocker. The freshman all look like talented defenders. And the defense could tick up even more when they activate the 7 footer - Marial. Really, they need the team 3 point shooting to improve. Cowan is the only player hitting more than a third of his 3's. We know from last season that Wiggins and Ayala can shoot em much better than they have.
In late October it was reported Marial would have surgery early September, require 3-4 months to heal, and that a mid-season return to the team would depend on the impact towards his long term health. I’m not seeing an update on how he’s doing. Anyone seen anything regarding his return?
The ESPN guys talked a bit about him - saying that he's progressing and will be ready at some point this season, but I didn't hear anything specific.
