The good news is that Martinez underwent an MRI, which showed no tear. He is however not with the team on their current two game road trip. Matt Greene is expected to be back in the lineup. Greene has missed the past six games with an upper-body injury.

Greene has played in 25 games. Very similar to Martinez, he has two goals and three assists, and is a plus-7. He was averaging 15:38 TOI.
Martinez is a depth defenseman, and with Greene returning, the Kings should not be very impacted.
