Marion has played a total of one minute over the course of the first three playoff games against the Celtics.

Marion saw action throughout the regular season but it appears that he'll give way to a tighter rotation under coach David Blatt in the playoffs. Unless there's a rout in one of Cleveland's future games, expect the former UNLV standout to be stuck on the pine.

Marion (hip) will play in Sunday's game against the Magic, the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Marion (hip) could return for Sunday's game against the Magic, Cleveland.com reports.

A left hip strain has kept Marion out of action for the past three weeks, but he's traveled with the team on its current, four-game road swing and may be in uniform Sunday. Marion, who will retire after this season, is not expected to be be a part of the regular rotation when he's cleared to play.

Marion (hip) will not play Thursday against the Spurs, Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Marion returned to practice Monday for the first time in more than two weeks, but he intimated that he'll take his time in returning to game action. The Cavaliers have been rolling in his absence, so there is certainly no rush to get him back into the rotation. That said, the veteran should see limited, although valuable, minutes once he's fully healthy.

Marion (hip) returned to practice Monday for the first time in more than two weeks, ESPN reports. "Shawn is out on the court, which is a good sign," Cavaliers coach David Blatt said. "He's still not ready. He's definitely coming along in the process well."

The veteran is without a firm return timetable, but he could play as soon as Sunday. The Cavs are set to begin a four-game road trip Tuesday in Dallas, and Blatt said if Marion practices and responds well Wednesday, he could return against the Magic (Sunday) or Heat (Monday) at the end of the trip. Marion, who saw consistent minutes earlier in the season, could be in for a reduced role when he returns, particularly given the recent emergence of James Jones. Cleveland has been sticking with an eight or nine-man rotation on most nights, so Marion may be the odd man out. "His role is to be determined," Blatt said. "That's the best way to put it. The rotation has been good and the team has been playing well. We're anxious to get him back."
