03:56 PM ET 03.16 | Dallas Mavericks forward Shawn Marion will be sidelined indefinitely after an MRI on Friday revealed a strained calf. For a team that's still battling to get a playoff spot, the news is especially disappointing given the initial diagnosis. When Marion went down on March 6 against Houston, doctors first believed he had a left calf contusion, which has a shorter recovery period. Instead, the Mavericks will likely be without one of their core players for a while. "We hope not too long, but we're going to exercise caution, and we're going to make sure he's right before he gets back," coach Rick Carlisle said when asked about situation.

Don't know what you have to do to make the point that you are being ironic. Maybe we need a stronger convention. 2 smileys means "irony" or something like that. Apparently 1 isn't enough.
