Marion, Ellington out again vs. Pelicans

DALLAS -- Mavericks forward Shawn Marion will miss at least one more game due to his bruised shoulder and ribs.

Marion will attend Saturday night's home game against the New Orleans Pelicans but not dress out.

"He's doing better, but he's not there yet," coach Rick Carlisle said before the game. "I don't have a timetable, but he's out tonight. Monday we'll see where things are."

This will be the third game missed by Marion, the Mavs' leading rebounder and best defender, since he crashed to the court during Tuesday's win over the Los Angeles Lakers.

Wayne Ellington, who replaced Marion in the starting lineup during Wednesday's loss to the San Antonio Spurs, will miss his second straight game due to an illness.
