Report: Shawn Marion will play
It looks like the Dallas Mavericks will be getting small forward Shawn Marion back on Friday night. After missing 11 days from an MCL injury, reports are surfacing that he will return to play against the Indiana Pacers.
Word emanating from Indy is good news for the Mavs: @matrix31 will play.—

The Mavs need Marion to fill in the gaps both offensively and defensively. With Dirk Nowitzki still recovering from an Oct. 19 surgery on his right knee, the Mavs will rely on Marion to lead the team Friday night. Marion has only played 4 games this season and still managed to lead the team in rebounds.
