Kevin Martin SG MIN 1 Month

Martin had his best scoring night of the young season, dropping 34 points (12-17 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT) with three rebounds, and one assist in 29 minutes.

Martin has been his usual, high-scoring self this season, averaging 18.6 points through his first eight games. His performance hasn't seemed to have been affected by the departure of Kevin Love, nor the injury to Ricky Rubio (ankle).

Martin scored just eight points on 2-of-9 shooting in Saturday's loss to Miami.

It was likely just an off night for Martin, but it's worth monitoring to see if his performance declines with Ricky Rubio out multiple weeks with an ankle injury.

Martin scored 26 points (8-20 FG, 4-9 3P, 6-6 FT) with seven rebounds and three assists in 38 minutes during Wednesday's win over the Nets.

That's back-to-back big games for Martin, who looks to be fully recovered from the ankle injury that caused him to miss the T-Wolves' opener. With Kevin Love no longer around, Martin could see enough shots this season to return to the 20+ PPG range.

Martin (ankle) played 20 minutes off the Minnesota bench and scored 12 points (3-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 5-6 FT) in the win over Detroit on Thursday.

Martin did not play in the opener against Memphis due to the ankle injury. Once he proves to be healthy, the veteran shooting guard should lead the Timberwolves in scoring.

Martin (ankle) is inactive for Wednesday's season opener.

He twisted his ankle in Tuesday's practice, and should be considered day-to-day.

Martin (groin) scored 13 points in 21 minutes and was 4-of-10 from the field in Sunday's preseason win over Oklahoma City.

It was Martin's preseason debut as he had been held out with a sore groin muscle. He'll likely be given plenty of rest during the preseason, but should be fine for the start of the regular season.

Martin (groin) participated in parts of Tuesday's practice and is expected to return no later than Sunday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Jerry Zgoda reports.

Martin is yet to play in the preseason due to an adductor strain, but he's getting close to returning to the court. There's a chance he could play Friday against Milwaukee, though Sunday in Tulsa against Oklahoma City is the most likely scenario.

Martin (groin) did not practice Monday, Kent Youngblood of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Martin continues to nurse an adductor strain, but the team expects him to return to practice at some point this week. The Wolves don't play again until Friday, so consider Martin questionable for that contest.
