Martin was hampered by injuries for much of the season, limiting him to only 39 games (36 starts).

When Martin was in the lineup, he was arguably the Timberwolves' best player, but hamstring and wrist injuries robbed him of more than half of the season. After back-to-back 30-point games in mid-November, it was revealed that Martin had fractured a bone in his wrist, and he would remain out until Jan. 28. Martin was productive upon his return, averaging 21.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists while shooting better than 46 percent from the floor in the month of February. His efficiency declined in March (40.5% FG), and he missed six games at the end of the month with a nagging hamstring issue. Never able to establish a rhythm, Martin's second season in Minnesota was essentially a wash, as the team experienced a flood of significant injuries and careened to the worst record in the league. Martin, who is under contract for two more seasons, will make just over $7 million in 2015-16. He'll open camp as the favorite to start at shooting guard but could face competition from Zach LaVine.

Martin (illness) is officially questionable for Wednesday's regular season finale against the Thunder.

Martin missed Monday's game after feeling ill during morning shootaround, but his status for Wednesday's contest remains up in the air at this point. Given the Timberwolves' multitude of injuries, Martin's presence in the lineup could provide a boost as they close out the season.

Martin was feeling ill Monday and missed morning shootaround, earning him a questionable tag for the Timberwolves' game against the Pelicans later in the evening, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Martin played each of the last two contests despite being supposedly ill, but it sounds as though his status for Monday's game is up in the air. He should receive an update prior to tip-off confirming one way or the other.

Martin (illness) scored 12 points in 36 minutes in Saturday's loss to Golden State. He took fluids intravenously before the game so he could play. "I should be in bed," he told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

It sounds like Martin will play in Minnesota's final two games since the team only had seven healthy players Saturday.

Martin (illness) says he'll play in Saturday's game, the Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda reports.

He admitted that he feels pretty sick Saturday, so do not be surprised if he does not play his typical minutes. Unfortunately for Martin, half the T-Wolves roster is out of action, so the fact that he can stand and move around essentially forced him into action.

Martin (illness) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game at Golden State.

Martin played through his illness Friday against the Lakers in Los Angeles, where he managed just six points (2-8 FG, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, and three turnovers in 26 minutes. Because Robbie Hummel (back) is also questionable Saturday, Lorenzo Brown and Chase Budinger could pick up additional run at two-guard.

Martin (illness) posted six points and two rebounds in 26 minutes of action Friday against the Lakers.

Martin was clearly affected by his illness, but was able to put up 26 minutes anyway. He's been playing well enough lately to be owned in most leagues, and owners will just have to shake off his weak Friday performance.
