Shawn Marion (hip) returned from a 13-game absence on Monday, scoring five points with one rebound in nine minutes off Miami's bench.
Marion was a DNP-CD on Sunday and will likely flit in and out of David Blatt's rotation, making him irrelevant for fantasy purposes. Avoid him even if he's thrust into a larger role due to injuries over the Cavs' final 13 games. Mar 17 - 9:33 AM

Shawn Marion (hip) will be active for Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

Marion will have the opportunity for some extended minutes tonight with Kevin Love (rest) out, although it seems unlikely that he'll play too much after spending the past month on the sidelines. Marion is averaging a meager 4.9 points and 3.5 rebounds on the season, and he had basically fallen out of the rotation before going down, so he can't be viewed as a viable option in most leagues.

Shawn Marion (hip) could return to the lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Magic.

Marion has been sidelined for the past three weeks, and the Cavaliers will be relieved to have their veteran back on their bench. The chances of Marion actually playing tonight are very slim, and he wasn't a big part of the rotation prior to the injury, so owners in most leagues can leave him on the wire with confidence.

Shawn Marion (hip) will not suit up for Thursday's game against the Spurs.

Marion is inching his way closer to a return, but Thursday will not be the day. His next opportunity to play will now come Sunday vs. Orlando, but with season averages of just 4.9 points and 3.5 rebounds per game, he's not going to be worth owning in most leagues.
Mar 12 - 11:59 AM

The Cavaliers are hopeful that Shawn Marion (hip) will return on their upcoming road trip.

Marion has been out since Feb. 22 with a strained left hip, but the Cavs are hoping he'll be able to return during their upcoming road trip that begins on Tuesday. While he's already been declared out, the team is hoping he'll be able to suit up on Thursday against the Spurs. Regardless of when he returns, Marion doesn't have enough value to be scooped up in anything but the deepest fantasy leagues.
Mar 10 - 10:40 AM

Shawn Marion (hip) returned to practice on Monday.

He has been out with a left hip strain since Feb. 22. "Shawn is out on the court, which is a good sign," said Cavs coach David Blatt. "He’s still not ready. He’s definitely coming along in the process well."The Cavs have used more three-guard lineups to offset the loss of Marion, but it hasn't really altered the value of any player since he went down. Marion can remain on the wire.
Mar 9 - 2:54 PM

Shawn Marion will miss the next two weeks with a strained left hip.

Marion has been struggling with his hip injury for several weeks and an MRI on Monday revealed a strain that will keep him out for the near future. The injury has caused Mario to fall out of the Cavs' rotation recently and the veteran said he's more focused on getting healthy for the playoffs. Marion can be left on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of fantasy leagues.
Feb 24 - 10:39 AM

Shawn Marion (hip) did not step on the court during Sunday's game against the Knicks, and he will not be traveling with the team for Tuesday's game against the Pistons.

Marion will stay in Cleveland to receive an MRI on his ailing hip, and with him out of the lineup there will be more playing time for guys like Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith. With averages of just 4.9 points and 3.5 rebounds on the season, Marion belongs on the waiver wire in nearly all leagues.
Feb 22 - 4:46 PM

Shawn Marion revealed that he has been dealing with an injured hip for the past couple of months.

"My hip is bothering me right now. I’ve been trying to fight through it as much as I can, but it’s causing me a lot of discomfort," Marion said. " I just want to get back to 100 percent healthy." Marion has played a combined 18 minutes in the Cavs' last five games including picking up a couple DNPs over that same stretch. The hip injury explains why his role in the rotation has been so erratic, and it's surprising that Marion continues to suit up for games instead of taking the necessary time to recover. If it's not already obvious, Marion can be left on the wire in almost all leagues.
Feb 22 - 10:04 AM

Shawn Marion didn't leave the Cavaliers' bench during Sunday's 120-105 win vs. the visiting Lakers.

He filled in at SF during LeBron James' recent absence but has quickly gone from the starting lineup to a DNP-CD, and there's no reason to expect him to produce while buried at the end of David Blatt's bench. Even rookie swingman Joe Harris saw some playing time on Sunday, knocking down a 3-pointer in four minutes of action.
Feb 8 - 6:42 PM

Shawn Marion will start at SF on Wednesday with LeBron James (wrist) unavailable.

LeBron is also doubtful for Friday's game, giving Marion a small window of opportunity with an expanded role. He's worth a glance for daily-league owners seeking a cheap option, but everyone in standard leagues should steer clear given the Cavs' plethora of options on the wings.
Jan 28 - 7:12 PM

Shawn Marion plans to retire following the 2014-15 season.

"I wanted to go out on my terms," Marion said. "The biggest thing is having a son. I got attached to him. Seeing him periodically is hard. Watching him grow up on pictures and videos is hard." Marion is in his 15th year and he joined the Cavs this season in an effort to win another championship. Marion was a perennial top option in fantasy last decade, but he doesn't have much fantasy value right now.
Jan 21 - 2:59 PM

Shawn Marion (hip) was back in action on Tuesday, coming off Cleveland's bench for six points, two assists and a team-high 11 rebounds in 22 minutes of action.

Marion wasn't 100 percent but his energy off the bench was a welcome counterpoint to Kevin Love's sluggish play with the starting unit. He has been a non-factor in fantasy leagues this season and the arrival of Iman Shumpert and J.R. Smith ensures that he won't have a mid-season resurgence.
Jan 14 - 12:02 AM

Shawn Marion (hip) will play against the Suns Tuesday night.

Marion's return will be a help to the Cavaliers, but it doesn't do much for fantasy owners as he's only averaging 5.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 1.1 assists on the season. His return Tuesday night will cut into the playing time of Mike Miller and James Jones, but there isn't much to see here fantasy-wise.
Jan 13 - 12:22 PM

Shawn Marion (hip) is planning to sit out against the Kings on Sunday in order to recover properly.

"If anything, I think maybe I'm out one more game if possible just to be on the safe side," Marion said. "Practice is tomorrow. I'd like to get a practice in first." While it sounds like he is definitely out Sunday, it looks like he will recover in time for Tuesday's game against the Suns. Expect to see a lot of J.R. Smith on Sunday, with Mike Miller and James Jones picking up additional minutes as well.
