Lakers Vs. Mavericks: Shawn Marion A Game Time Decision

Shawn Marion has been listed as a game-time decision for Wednesday night's game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Marion, who has missed the last two games due to a left knee injury, did participate in Wednesday's shootaround successfully, but remains a game-time decision.

"Feeling better," Marion said after the shootaround. "Don't know yet [about playing]. We've got to talk about it."

Having Marion on the court against the Lakers would be a huge boost for the Mavericks. As ESPN's Jeff Caplan points out, Marion defends Kobe Bryant very well, holding him to a mere 14.5 points per game average in two games.

The Mavericks have won both games since Marion went down, defeating both the San Antonio Spurs and Denver Nuggets. There's no doubt, though, that the Mavericks would benefit from having Marion back.

At the least, it sounds like Marion should be back pretty soon -- and hopefully soon is tonight for the Mavs and their fans.
