Kevin Martin SG MIN 2 Months

The Timberwolves may try to include Kevin Martin and J.J. Barea in any trade that involves Kevin Love.

Dealing away Martin and Barea would clear about $24.7 in guaranteed salary off the Wolves' books, while clearing more minutes in the backcourt for No. 13 pick Zach LaVine. The Bulls and Nuggets may still be in the mix for Love, but the Cavaliers appear to be the favorites if they consent to packaging Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, a future first-round pick, and enough spare parts to make the salaries match.

The Nuggets are offering Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and the 11th pick in the 2014 draft for Kevin Love and Kevin Martin, according to Chris Broussard of

This doesn't really make much sense for the Wolves at all. While Faried had a career year, he can't get his own shot and most of his production comes off the glass. As for Martin, the Wolves aren't too attached to him after giving him a four-year, $28 million. This deal probably isn't going to be accepted.

Kevin Martin scored a season-high 36 points during a 136-130 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday, adding two boards, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He made 12-of-24 from the field and had a big improvement from his 8.0 points per game in his previous two games. Martin missed six games before this stretch due to a foot injury and he's said he's fought some plantar fasciitis this season and the offseason should help him. He'll be considered as an injury risk heading into next season based on his injury-plagued career.

Kevin Martin thinks that "a touch of plantar fasciitis" caused the sore right foot that sidelined him five games before his return on Sunday.

Martin played poorly with two points in 18 minutes on Sunday, and with nothing to play for the Wolves may opt to rest him in one or both of their final games. At the very least, fantasy owners should keep a close eye on the Wolves' injury report.

Kevin Martin struggled in his return from a heel injury on Sunday, missing all eight of his field goals to score two points with one rebound in a loss vs. the Kings.

The Wolves have won four of their past seven games despite myriad injuries, but their 40-40 record puts them six full games out of the playoff picture. Martin obviously wasn't his usual efficient self, and he only got to the free throw line two times, so owners should continue to monitor his status for the Wolves' final two games.

Kevin Martin (heel) will start Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

Martin had sharp pain in his foot last week and it's not entirely clear what the issue was, but he feels well enough to suit up for the Wolves' third-to-last game. His return should send Corey Brewer to SF and rookie Robbie Hummel to the bench.

Kevin Martin will not play against the Rockets on Friday due to his foot injury.

He won't get to play against his former team and is likely out for the season. Martin is still fighting pain in his foot and the oft-injured guard should just shut it down. This late injury will likely cause him to slide in fantasy drafts next season, and rightfully so.

Kevin Martin (foot) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are doubtful for Friday's game against the Wolves.

We'd be surprised to see either player again this season. This will be Martin's fifth straight game on the sideline as he fights sharp pain in his foot. Look for a starting five of Ricky Rubio, Robbie Hummel, Corey Brewer, Kevin Love and Gorgui Dieng. Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee) are out. JJ Barea (back) is questionable.

Kevin Martin will sit out Tuesday's game due to sharp pain in his right heel.

Martin said he felt as though there as "a knife" stabbing him with each step following Wednesday's game, and it's unclear when or if he might return this season. Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee) are also expected to sit out, forcing bigger roles onto probable starter Robbie Hummel, Corey Brewer, J.J. Barea and Luc Mbah a Moute.
