Cavaliers forward Shawn Marion to have MRI on left hip
Marion was sent home after Cleveland’s victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday to determine the extent of the injury. He did not travel with the team for the game against the Detroit Pistons on Tuesday.
Marion, 36, has dealt with the injury for the last several weeks. He has played 50 games this season, starting 23, averaging 20 minutes a game.
He is averaging a career-low 4.9 points and 3.5 rebounds per game. He announced in January that this will be his last season in the NBA, saying he “wanted to go out on my terms” and spend time with his young son.
Marion decided to sign with the Cavaliers after considering retirement following last season with the Dallas Mavericks.
