Though nothing official is forthcoming from the Timberwolves, USA Today is reporting Kevin Martin will miss at least two more weeks with the broken thumb on his left hand suffered Friday in a loss to the Pelicans.

 

More specifically, the report says Martin will be re-evaluated in 2-3 weeks, so we would imagine the timetable for his return will easily stretch into March.

That's a blow for the Wolves, who have lost six of their last seven heading into Wednesday's game against Denver, their final contest 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.
