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.
Surgery to repair Kevin Martin's wrist with screw chosen in hope of getting him back on court within six weeksZgoda 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.
