Timberwolves Injury Update: Kevin Martin to undergo surgery on wrist, likely out six-weeks

By on 11/26/2014 06:30:00 AM

The Minnesota Timberwolves head into tonight's game against the Milwaukee Bucks coming off a 113-101 loss to the Sacramento Kings on Saturday. Andrew Wiggins lead the Timberwolves with 29 points in 41 minutes in the losing effort. At 3-9 on the season, the Timberwolves are sitting in fourth place in the Northwest Division. The struggles will likely continue for the Timberwolves, who will be without Kevin Martin for around six weeks due to a fractured wrist.

Our own Tim Hanrahan reported on November 21 that Martin is out indefinitely with a fractured right wrist that occurred during last Wednesday's game against the New York Knicks.

Jerry Zgoda, Timberwolves reporter for the Star Tribune, tweeted the following update on Martin's status.
Zgoda also noted that Martin was set to have surgery on his wrist yesterday. The decision was made to get Martin back on the court in about six weeks, as opposed to a longer healing time to have the wrist put in a cast. Martin also fractured his non-shooting hand in 2009 and missed more than two months following surgery.

Martin, in his 11th NBA season, is averaging 20.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game. The veteran guard has played for the Kings, Rockets, Thunder and Timberwolves and has career averages of 17.9 points and 3.3 rebounds in 629 games.
