Martin's Return Gives Lineup Much-Needed Veteran Presence
In his third season with the Timberwolves, Martin has struggled with his shot all year. He's shooting 37.5 percent, including a disconcertingly low 36.4 percent mark from beyond the arc. The result has been a lost starting gig and varied playing time, with Martin receiving 40 minutes on some nights and in the teens on others.
Martin also suffered a wrist injury in December, but it did not cost him any games. Injury issues aren't anything new for Martin, however, as he's missed 10 or more games in all but three of his 11 previous NBA seasons.
The Timberwolves are well outside the playoff picture, but Martin's return is a welcomed sight in Minnesota.
