According to the Dallas Morning News, a "best-case scenario" would have Shawn Marion (calf) returning "sometime next week."
If that timetable holds true, Marion is in jeopardy of missing Friday's game against the Cavs, Sunday's game against the Thunder and possibly Monday's game against the Hawks. The Mavs also play Wednesday and Friday of next week, so Marion doesn't have a ton of time between games to heal. "We don't have anybody who can replace what Shawn does," Rick Carlisle said. For as long as Marion is out, Jae Crowder will continue to start with Vince Carter seeing a bigger role off the bench.
