Cartier Martin SG/SF DET 1 Day

Martin (foot) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.

Martin also missed the Pistons' season opener due to a foot injury, so Detroit's rotation Thursday won't be impacted by another absence from Martin. Nonetheless, the offseason addition will hope to make his Detroit debut Saturday versus Brooklyn.

Martin is inactive for Wednesday's season opener against the Nuggets,'s David Mayo reports.

Martin will be a healthy scratch, likely as a result of Luigi Datome (knee) being deemed healthy enough to suit up. Neither player is a high-percentage fantasy play until they can carve out more minutes in the Pistons' rotation.

Martin started at shooting guard Wednesday, finishing with 11 points, four rebounds and two treys in 30 minutes.

Don't read too much into Martin's starting nod, as both Jodie Meeks (back) and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope (knee) were sidelined with injuries. Pistons head coach Stan Van Gundy has stated that he'll be toying around with starting lineups and rotations throughout the preseason, and Wednesday marked Martin's look at extending run. Even if multiple wings miss time during the regular season, the Pistons would likely turn to Caron Butler and/or Kyle Singler before giving Martin an opportunity at starter-lever minutes.

Martin (shoulder) will play in Thursday's preseason contest versus Milwaukee.

Martin missed Detroit's exhibition opener Tuesday due to a sore right shoulder, but will make his Pistons' preseason debut Thursday. Expected to fill a depth role, Martin should get plenty of playing time during the preseason to state his case for a place in the Pistons' rotation this season.

The Pistons have reportedly agreed to a one-year deal with SF Cartier Martin.

Detroit also came to terms with Jodie Meeks, and Stan Van Gundy's priorities have been revealed with two deadly 3-point shooters signed after one day of free agency. Even if Josh Smith is traded or shifted to PF, as expected, Martin will face competition from Kyle Singler and Luigi Datome at the SF spot.

Cartier Martin will start against the Bobcats on Monday.

DeMarre Carroll is getting rest tonight and it's probably going to be Cartier time for much of this game. Martin logged 29 minutes in Carroll's last DNP on Mar. 29, scoring 13 points with four boards, two assists, one block, two steals and two 3-pointers. There's a good chance he'll be above 30 minutes tonight and may be even above 35. He's a option for owners in daily leagues.

Cartier Martin started in place of DeMarre Carroll (illness) in Saturday's game vs. the Wizards, scoring 13 points with four boards, two assists, two steals, one block and two 3-pointers.

The Hawks don't seem to be very confident in playing Mike Scott at small forward and their guards are too small to play there as well, so Martin got some run tonight. Carroll doesn't project to miss much time which makes Martin a bit of an undesirable guy in most situations.

Cartier Martin hit 7-of-14 shots and a 3-pointer for 16 points, six rebounds and three steals in 24 minutes off the bench on Wednesday.

This game was a blowout and he was one of just a handful of Hawks able to make a shot tonight. The Hawks are still fighting for a playoff spot and need their starters to play better, so don't expect to see Cart-Mart do this on a regular basis.

Hawks signed Cartier Martin for the rest of the season.

Martin had to be waived so that the Antawn Jamison trade could go through. Once Jamison was waived, the Hawks were able to re-sign Martin. He'll be DeMarre Carrol's backup going forward.
