Mavs’ Marion Returns Tonight Against Celtics
Dallas Mavericks forward Shawn Marion declared himself ready to return after missing the last eight games due to a strained left calf. Marion, who participated in the Mavs’ practice Thursday, will play in Friday night’s home game against the Boston Celtics.
“It’s feeling a lot better,” Marion said. “I still feel a little bit [of soreness], but it’s not enough to hold me back. I’m able to do a little bit more things and put some pressure on it.”
