Shawn Marion confirmed via text message to ESPN that he does indeed plan to retire after completing his 16th NBA season.
Marion said all along that the 2014-15 season would be his last, and there have been no reports indicating that that would not be the case. The Matrix was a captivating player to watch during his prime, and he was a key component to the Dallas Mavericks' championship run in 2011. He'll end his career with averages of 15.2 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.5 steals and 1.1 blocks per game on 48.4 percent shooting from the field and 81.0 percent from the charity stripe.

Head coach David Blatt hinted that Shawn Marion, Mike Miller and Kendrick Perkins will have to play more minutes in the second round.

Kevin Love won't play in the second because of an injured shoulder, while J.R. Smith has been suspended two games for hitting Jae Crowder of the Celtics in the face with the back of his hand. In the series against Boston, Marion played just one minute, Miller didn't play at all and Kendrick Perkins saw just six minutes of action in two appearances. From a fantasy standpoint, there's obviously not a lot to like here.

Shawn Marion scored eight points on 4-of-9 shooting Sunday, adding seven rebounds, two turnovers, and grabbing the only steal for the Cavs' entire team.

The Cavs couldn't get much of anything from their "starters" today, and turnovers became a major issue for Cleveland. Boston nabbed 20 steals to Cleveland's one, which tells you what kind of game it was. Marion hasn't been very effective at all this season from a numbers standpoint, and his designation as a starter rarely equates to a bump in statistics. He'll head back to the bench on Tuesday, and he should remain on the waiver wire in all leagues.

Shawn Marion will be in the starting lineup for Sunday's game vs. the Celtics with LeBron James (rest) unavailable.

Marion will see a lot of opportunity tonight with the majority of the Cavs' starters resting, but he's still not a great guy to target in most leagues. Through 23 games as a starter this season, Marion has put in meager averages of 5.2 points and 3.5 rebounds per game on 41.9 percent shooting from the field.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Feb 8, 2015 06:42:00 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.
