Shawn Marion doubtful; Chris Kaman might play vs. Rockets

Forward Shawn Marion is doubtful for Saturday night's game against the Rockets, and center Chris Kaman might be able to play, Mavs coach Rick Carlisle told reporters after the morning shootaround in Houston.

Marion strained his groin during the third quarter of Thursday's win over the Suns and was sidelined the remainder of the game.

Kaman turned his left ankle during the fourth quarter Thursday. Carlisle said Kaman's ankle was progressing better than anticipated.

The Mavs went 2-3 in games Marion missed earlier this season due to a sprained MCL in his left knee.
