Marion, who was hurt in Miami's loss at Houston on Saturday, was replaced in the lineup by Yakhouba Diawara.
It's the fifth game Marion has missed this season, and his third with the groin injury. He also missed two games in November with a similar injury.
The four-time All-Star is Miami's third-leading scorer with a 12.3-point average and among the league's leaders with 9.2 rebounds per game.
