The Mavericks are off to a 3-1 start, one that is certainly better than expected considering they’ve played all four of those games without the injured Dirk Nowitzki.

We’ll see if Dallas can keep it together for a little longer without another one of its starters.

Shawn Marion will miss the team’s next three games with a sprain to his left medial collateral ligament (MCL), the team announced. The injury occurred in the second half of the Mavericks’ win over the Blazers on Monday.

Dallas hosts the Raptors on Wednesday, then has a road back-to-back in New York and Charlotte. Marion won’t make the trip, and will be reevaluated next week. He’s averaging eight points, nine rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.3 blocks on the young season, while playing 27 minutes per game.

    Damn that’s a big loss for them already down Dirk and Kaman.

    Spurs fan, but hope he gets better soon. Always respected the way The Matrix plays (even if he has one of the goofiest jump shots I’ve ever seen).
