Shawn Marion F CLE 24 Days

Marion (ankle) came off the bench to provide seven points (2-7 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and 10 rebounds in 24 minutes in the win over the Hornets on Friday.

Marion missed the two previous games, but had one of his more effective games in the win. This was his first double-digit rebounding game. His contributions to the Cavaliers have been limited statistically, and will likely continue to be so.

Marion (ankle) will not start Friday, Cavs announcer John Michael reports.

He is expected to return to action after missing two games with an ankle injury, but Mike Miller will get the start at small forward, so Marion may be on a minutes limit.

Marion (ankle) said he will play in Friday's game against the Hornets, the Akron Beacon Journal's Jason Lloyd reports.

Kevin Love (back) also expects to return, after the Cavs played the last two games with very limited frontcourt options. Given that LeBron James (knee/back) remains sidelined, Marion will likely get the start and plenty of minutes Friday night.

Marion (ankle) will not play Wednesday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer's Chris Haynes reports.

This will be his second straight game sidelined with the ankle injury, and Matthew Dellavedova and Mike Miller will likely start on the wing, as LeBron James is also out. Consider Marion day-to-day for now.

Marion (ankle) is considered "highly questionable," per coach David Blatt, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports.

Blatt called Marion, LeBron James (knee) and Kevin Love (back) all "highly questionable," so Cleveland could be extremely shorthanded in the frontcourt, as Anderson Varejao (Achilles) is already done for the season. If Marion sits, it will be his second straight absence.

Marion (ankle) will not play Tuesday, Turner Sports' Ethan Skolnick reports.

LeBron James is also out, so this will test the Cavaliers' depth on the wing. Mike Miller, James Jones and Dion Waiters all figure to see expanded roles against the Hawks. Marion rolled his ankle Sunday, and should be considered day-to-day for now.

Marion (ankle) is questionable to play Tuesday against the Hawks, Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio reports.

Mario rolled his ankle in the second quarter of Sunday's blowout loss to Detroit but was able to return to the game. He played only 15 minutes, however, and has presumably been dealing with some swelling and discomfort. The veteran is essentially a game-time call at this point, and a final update likely won't come until close to Tuesday's 7:30 PM ET tip.

Marion (ankle) left Sunday's game in the second quarter with a sprained ankle but was able to return to action in the second half. He put up four points and three rebounds in 15 minutes off the bench.

Marion was moved back into a bench role two games ago to get Tristan Thompson in the starting lineup at center. Given the Cavs' current roster, Marion will likely be stuck in a limited defensive role off the bench the majority of the season, making him difficult to own in anything but the deepest of leagues.

Marion is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Pistons after rolling his left ankle, Bob Finnan of The News-Herald reports.

Marion suffered the injury in the second quarter of the afternoon contest, and should be considered day-to-day until further notice. If he's unable to return, Mike Miller and Dion Waiters should continue to take on heavy minutes.

Marion moved into the starting lineup Thursday with Anderson Varejao (Achilles) out for the season. Marion put up two points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds, and one steal in 19 minutes.

The Cavs opted to use a small lineup that features Kevin Love at center and Marion at power forward, but the team's inability to protect the cup Thursday against an injury-depleted Heat team could force coach David Blatt to make changes heading into their next game.
