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