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.
Jan 1 - 4:15 PM

Shawn Marion (ankle) will not play Wednesday vs. the Bucks.

Marion was considered "highly questionable" so this comes as no surprise, and the Cavs are extremely short-handed with LeBron James (knee) out and Kevin Love (back) also very iffy to play. Mike Miller, Dion Waiters and James Jones should pick up the slack in Marion's absence.
Wed, Dec 31, 2014 06:17:00 PM

Shawn Marion (ankle) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

He suffered the injury on Sunday vs. the Pistons but was able to play through the pain. However, it is likely that he experienced some swelling so it is no surprise to see him sit this one out. Tristan Thompson, Dion Waiters, and Mike Miller should all see big minutes with LeBron James (knee) also ruled out for Tuesday. Marion can be cut in almost all leagues and we will update his status as soon as we know more.
Tue, Dec 30, 2014 06:14:00 PM

Shawn Marion briefly left Sunday's game vs. the Pistons with an ankle injury, but soon returned, finishing with four points and three rebounds over 15 minutes of action.

He also added one assist, one steal, one block, and one turnover, but his minutes have been trending down lately. He's averaging just 5.7 points and 3.5 rebounds this season, and he's just not worth owning in standard leagues. When asked about his status for Tuesday, Marion responded with "We'll see" so he should be considered questionable for that contest. If he is forced to sit, Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson will likely see a boost off of the bench.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 06:43:00 PM

Shawn Marion went to the locker room after coming down awkwardly on his left ankle after a layup attempt, and his return is questionable.

We'll be monitoring this situation closely, but if Marion is unable to return there will be more minutes to go around for guys like Tristan Thompson and Dion Waiters. Stay tuned.
