While no official word is coming from the Minnesota Timberwolves, USA Today is reporting that Kevin Martin will be re-evaluated in another two weeks because of the broken thumb on his left hand. It was broken Friday in their loss to the Pelicans.
It is starting to look like Martin’s return will now be pushed into March.
And that’s a major blow for the Wolves, who have lost six of their last seven games heading into Wednesday’s game against Denver, their final game before the All-Star break.
Martin has been their best perimeter scorer this season, making a team-high 40 percent of his three-pointers while averaging 19 points, second-best behind Kevin Love.
