DALLAS -- Shawn Marion will not play tonight when the Dallas Mavericks host the Sacramento Kings at 7:30 at American Airlines Center.
Coach Rick Carlisle said on Thursday that Marion hasn't fully recovered from the right shoulder and upper rib contusions that forced him to miss four games from Jan. 8-13. The injury occurred when Marion tripped over teammate Dirk Nowitzki and Pau Gasl of the Los Angeles Lakers on Jan. 7.
"He's not going to play tonight and he'll be listed probably day-to-day and we hope he can feel better sometimes soon,'' Carlisle said after Friday morning's shootaround. "It's not a setback.
"It's just not there.''
With no Marion, the Mavs will bump Jae Crowder up a notch in the rotation.
