There are no medical issues with Marion and Carter, both of whom have been praised by coach Rick Carlisle recently for their leadership. They stayed home to rest, according to a team spokesperson.

The roles of Marion and Carter are expected to increase during the time that Dirk Nowitzki is sidelined. The Mavs want to make sure that they are fresh for the beginning of the regular season next week.
