DALLAS -- Shawn Marion said he's in for Friday's game against the Indiana Pacers. Brendan Haywood confirmed he'll play, too. Lamar Odom hopes he'll be feeling well by the 7:30 p.m. to suit up.

Coach Rick Carlisle said all three participated in Thursday's light workout and is hopeful each will be in the lineup. Jason Kidd will continue to sit out with a strained right calf. His absence, Carlisle said, could extend into next week.

Marion said he's still stinging from slightly hyperextending his right knee in Wednesday's second quarter when Oklahoma City big man Kendrick Perkins fell on his leg.

"I'm all right," Marion said. "I'm a little sore. I'll play. I'll be fine."

Haywood said the tightness in his lower back has subsided some. Odom, who like Haywood missed his first game of the season, had a stomach ailment that sent him home.
