Shawn Marion is game-time decision vs. Kings

DALLAS – Dallas Mavericks forward Shawn Marion, who has a right groin strain, participated in most of shootaround on Monday and his playing status will be determined shortly before tonight’s game with the Sacramento Kings.

“It feels a lot better,” Marion said. “I’ll evaluate myself tonight and go from there.”
