Shawn Marion-F - Mavericks
Last Updated: 15 Mar, 07:16 PM
Rick Carlisle says a MRI on Shawn Marion revealed a strained calf and not just a contusion. No timetable for a return.
Rookie Jae Crowder has started and seen an increase in minutes in Marions absence. Crowder has played 30 plus minutes in two of his last three games, having scored 14 points in one and pulling down 14 rebounds down in the other. As long as Crowder continues to get the minutes he could be a sneaky source of rebounds, some points, and steals, (has at least one steal in five straight games). Crowders inconsistency in where he provides production makes him even more useful in points leagues and as a value play in daily fantasy leagues, while his price remains basement bargain cheap.
