PLAYERS: Shawn Marion
TEAMS: Dallas Mavericks
Shawn Marion has missed the last eight games, but he's ready to return.  The Dallas Mavericks' forward was suffering from a strained left calf, but after sitting out and resting the injury, he feels he's ready to return to the court.  He says he will play tonight against the Boston Celtics.According to Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas, the decision to return was up to Marion.  He declared himself ready and should be in the lineup tonight."It's feeling a lot better," Marion said. "I still feel a little bit [of soreness], but it's not enough to hold me back. I'm able to do a little bit more things and put some pressure on it."Marion's return could be a huge boost for the Mavericks.  Dallas is in danger of missing the playoffs for the first time in 13 years.  They would have to get hot down the stretch to be able to overtake the teams ahead of them in the standings, but Marion could help.Marion is averaging 11.7 points and 7.9 rebounds per game this year.  It's the rebounding presence the Mavericks have missed most while he's been out.  In his career, Marion has averaged 16.2 points and 9.1 rebounds per game.
