Marbury likely out tonight

Grieving over the death of his father, Stephon Marbury is not expected to play Monday night when the New York Knicks host the Mavericks, according to

"I don't think he'll be playing tonight," Knicks coach Isiah Thomas said at the team's morning shootaround. "Again, we'll give him as much time as he needs. This is a tough thing for him to overcome right now. He is fighting his way through it."

Since his father, Donald Marbury Sr., died a little more than a week ago, Marbury missed last Wednesday's game against the Nets, but then played in the Knicks' two games against the 76ers over the weekend.
