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.

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.

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.
Jan 11 - 1:24 PM

Shawn Marion (hip) said he doesn't expect to play on Sunday against the Kings.

It could change, but we're likely looking at J.R. Smith in the starting lineup with Mike Miller and James Jones getting more run, too. Marion can be dropped in most leagues.
Jan 10 - 5:18 PM

Shawn Marion (hip) will not play on Friday night vs. the Warriors.

He has a strained left hip and he could miss more time. The Cavs are going to count on J.R. Smith more with a few others getting in the mix.
Jan 9 - 10:25 PM

Shawn Marion (strained left hip) is doubtful to play against the Warriors on Friday.

Marion is playing around 20 minutes per night with the LeBron James-less Cavs, so those minutes will likely be spread to several guys such as J.R. Smith, Mike Miller and Matthew Dellavedova. Fantasy owners in most leagues can ignore this news.
Jan 9 - 4:14 PM

Shawn Marion scored seven points with 10 rebounds, two assists and one block in 24 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

He will likely see a slight uptick in minutes while getting time at small forward. Marion is likely going to do most of his work off the ball and won't get too many shots, but he should flirt with top-125 value in standard leagues over the next two weeks.
Jan 2 - 11:14 PM

Shawn Marion (ankle) said that he will play Friday against the Hornets.

Marion's return to the lineup will likely put a dent in James Jones' minute allotment, and it'll be interesting to see how he performs sans LeBron James (knee, back). Marion is only averaging 5.6 points and 3.5 rebounds this season, so he's not an option in standard leagues, nor does he make for a great play in dailies.
Jan 2 - 10:15 AM

Shawn Marion (ankle) is questionable to play Friday vs. the Hornets.

If Marion is unable to suit up for Friday's game, Mike Miller, James Jones, and Dion Waiters will see extended minutes for the Cavs with LeBron James (knee, back) also sidelined. Waiters offers the most upside out of the group, while Miller and Jones can be viewed as 3-point specialists in deep leagues.
