The Minnesota Timberwolves fell to the San Antonio Spurs on Friday by the score of 121-92. The blowout loss dropped the Timberwolves to 3-8 on the season, fourth in the Northwest Division. Anthony Bennett lead the Timberwolves with 20 points on 9-of-14 shooting in 32 minutes off the bench. The Timberwolves were without Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin, both out with wrist injuries. The bad news on Martin is that his wrist is fracture and he may need surgery.

Rotoworld.com reported that  Martin will have his wrist examined in the coming days to determine whether or not he'll need surgery. It appears that Martin will be out at least six weeks, which is a significant loss to the Timberwolves. In absence, expect Chase Budinger, Corey Brewer and Mo Williams see the majority of the minutes in the back court and small forward.

Martin, in his 11th NBA season out of Western Carolina, is averaging 20.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game this season. The veteran guard has played for the Kings, Rockets, Thunder and Timberwolves and has career averages of 17.9 points and 3.3 rebounds per game.
