Timberwolves Injury Update: Kevin Martin and Shabazz Muhammad expected to practice sometime this week

By on 10/13/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Minnesota Timberwolves have split their first two games of the preseason coming off a 40-42 record last season. At 26th in the league in points allowed last season, the Timberwolves need to improve on their defense to compete in the division and conference. On the injury front, Kevin Martin and Shabazz Muhammad are expected to practice this week, but it's uncertain whether or not either will play on Friday against the Milwaukee Bucks.

I reported on October 6 that Martin would miss the first preseason game against the Indiana Pacers with an abductor strain.

Kent Youngblood, sports writer at, tweeted the following on Martin and Muhammad.
Muhammad played 25 minutes in the preseason opener, scoring nine points and grabbing four rebounds in 25 minutes. He missed the second preseason game and practice on Saturday due to an Achilles injury. Muhammad, in his second season out of UCLA, averaged 3.9 points in 37 games last season.

Martin appeared in 68 games with the Timberwolves last season and averaged 19.1 points and three rebounds per game. The 10-year NBA veteran has played for the Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets, Oklahoma City Thunder and Timberwolves and has career averages of 17.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
