Shawn Marion announced that he’s ready to go for the Dallas Mavericks tomorrow when they face the Los Angeles Clippers.
I think it’s something I can tolerate now, I’m good to go. I plan on playing. I’m ready to go, man. I can’t sit out too much longer. It’s tolerable, so I’m going to give it a go and help my team on this road trip.
Marion injured his shoulder and ribs against the Los Angeles Lakers when he tripped over teammate Dirk Nowitzki.With the Mavericks set to face three Western Conference teams, who all are in the playoff picture and play the next five of six games on the road, he picked the right time to get back.
Marion leads the team with 7.2 rebounds a game and averages 11.3 points.
The Mavericks went 3-1 without Marion, but all three wins were against teams with a sub .500 record.
