Kenyon Martin Plans to Return This Season

by March 09, 2010

K-Mart believes that he will be back in uniform this season, but perhaps only once the Playoffs roll around. The Denver Post has the details: “The pain in Kenyon Martin’s left knee was so bad Saturday, he couldn’t play golf — ‘that’s my plant leg’ — so the Nuggets forward spent the sunny day indoors, instead golfing on a Nintendo Wii video game. The pain has persisted, and now Martin will miss an undetermined amount of time while undergoing platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy. He plans to return this season, although perhaps not until the NBA playoffs, the team announced Monday. Martin began the PRP therapy Monday. It’s definitely a good news-bad news situation for the Nuggets (42-21), who rank third in the Western Conference. The good news is Martin won’t require surgery on the knee, which is suffering from patella tendinitis. The bad news is the race in the West is tight and without Martin, the Nuggets will be without their ‘defensive quarterback,’ as coach George Karl calls him.”
