DALLAS -- No concerns from the Dallas Mavericks about the availability of guard Monta Ellis and forward Shawn Marion for tonight's game against the San Antonio Spurs.
Ellis bruised his tailbone and Marion suffered a foot injury during Tuesday's 95-83 win over the Utah Jazz. While both players continued to play their normal minutes against the Jazz, there was some concern on whether they would be ready to play tonight at 7 against the Spurs at American Airlines Center.
"I think they're going to be OK,'' coach Rick Carlisle said after Thursday morning's shootaround. "They both were in for treatment yesterday and they both went through shootaround.
"At this time of the year everybody’s got some aches and pains. These guys have been some of
our tougher guys and I think they’re going to be OK.''
