Marion Out At Least 3 Games With MCL Sprain
Shawn Marion left Monday’s game against the Portland Trailblazers and didn’t return. He has been diagnosed with a MCL sprain and will miss at least 3 games. He will be reevaluated next week to see if he will miss more time than expected. The rookie, Jae Crowder, should get the start in the absense of Shawn Marion. The Mavericks have jumped out to a 3-1 start this season and can’t afford to lose another starting piece long term while Dirk Nowitzki is out.
