Shawn Marion takes a tumble, leaves game

NEW ORLEANS -- Shawn Marion left tonight's game against the Hornets with 5:03 left to play in the third quarter after being shoved from behind and flung into a cameraman along the baseline while rising for a layup.

Marco Belinelli drew a Flagrant I foul at the 5:52 mark. After a timeout, Marion made one of two free throws and remained in the game briefly.

Marion remained down just to the left of the goal support for a few moments and then walked gingerly to the bench for the timeout.

There has been no official word yet on an injury. Marion did get up to greet his teammates during a timeout at the 2:33 mark of the quarter.
