Kevin Martin SG MIN 5 Months

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 not play against the Bulls due to his foot injury.

He's dealing with some sharp pain in his foot and it looks like he'll be out for the season. Martin has dealt with several injuries in his career and will have another injury red flag on his draft value next season.

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.

Kevin Martin said that he's missed the past two games because of a stabbing pain in his right heel which began after Wednesday's game vs. Memphis.

"The next day it felt like a knife in the bottom of my damn heel with every step," he said. "I'm just trying to get that pain out. I don't know what it is, I don't need to know. It might just be an old man injury." The Wolves are limping to the finish line with Martin, Nikola Pekovic (ankle), Kevin Love (back), Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee) all banged up and questionable to play on Tuesday.

Kevin Martin quickly recovered from Thursday's single-digit scoring game, dropping 25 points on 6-of-16 FGs and 11-of-12 FTs in Sunday's loss.

He chipped in two 3-pointers with one assist and one steal, which is about all that his fantasy owners can expect from the veteran scoring guard. K-Mart has missed nine games this season, well below his career average for DNPs, and on a cumulative basis he's returning solid top-75 value with a predictable emphasis on scoring, 3s and FT percentage.

Kevin Martin made just 2-of-5 from the field for six points vs. the Rockets on Thursday with one board, one assist, one steal and one 3-pointer in 20 minutes.

He shot just 1-of-2 from the line and this was just the seventh time all year he's made one or less free throws in a game. That has been Martin's bread and butter with 5.2 attempts per game while making 89.6 percent of those this season. This was his worst scoring game since Jan. 12 and he was kind of rolling in March with 22.1 points per game in his previous nine games, so he should bounce back on Sunday.

Kevin Martin neared his season high with 31 points vs. the Kings, doing the bulk of his damage with a perfect 14-of-14 mark at the free throw line.

KevMart has found his offensive groove in March, averaging 21.3 points and 1.4 threes per game, and his production is desperately needed as the Wolves attempt to keep their dwindling playoff hopes alive despite Nikola Pekovic's ongoing ankle problems. Over the past two weeks, Martin has easily been the most helpful player for fantasy owners in the FT percentage category (96.3 percent on 7.7 attempts per game).

Kevin Martin made 9-of-16 from the field during Friday's 114-101 win vs. the Pistons, scoring 24 points with one board, one assist and one 3-pointer in 32 minutes.

Since returning from a thumb injury, he's averaged 21.0 points, 2.5 boards, 1.5 assists, 0.5 steals and 1.0 triples on 45.3 percent from the field and 94.1 percent from the line. Martin has shot just 21.1 percent from downtown in that span, so that's really the only part of his game that hasn't come around yet.

Kevin Martin scored just 12 points against the Knicks on Wednesday with three boards, one assist and two 3-pointers.

He shot 3-of-10 tonight and 3-of-11 from the field on Monday, so his shot isn't falling right now. What's more, Martin has made just 21.4 percent of his 3-point attempts since returning from a thumb injury, but there's still not enough of a sample size to worry.

Kevin Martin set up shot at the free throw line all night in Monday's game against the Nuggets, making 16-of-17 attempts as part of his line of 22 points, two boards, two assists and two turnovers.

He shot just 3-of-11 from the field and couldn't get many good looks. This was his second game back from a thumb injury, but he did shoot 9-of-16 in his return, so it's probably not a strong enough correlation to say his thumb is bothering him. Martin should be owned in all leagues while he's healthy.
