Martin didn’t play Thursday and likely won’t play another game again until Oct. 20 in Montreal because of that sore Achilles that caused him to leave Wednesday’s victory at Toronto after just six minutes.
He looked sore after training-camp workouts in Mankato a week ago. If he doesn’t play Saturday against the Raptors at Target Center, he’ll have 10 days to heal his body between games.
“I’ve got to get myself healthy,” he said before Thursday’s game.
• Adelman started Alexey Shved in Martin’s spot and also played Jeffers and Brown there.
• New Bucks coach Larry Drew started Wolters in his return to South Dakota. He played 20 minutes, scored 10 points and raised the roof when he made a fourth-quarter three.
• Former Wolves guard Luke Ridnour is back with the Bucks after the Wolves traded him last summer back to Milwaukee, where he played two seasons.
“It’s always sad to move, especially because I liked playing for Rick,” Ridnour said of Adelman. “I enjoyed my time with him. There are good guys over there, too.”
• The Bucks played without injured Ekpe Udoh, Ersan Ilyasova, Carlos Delfino and Zaza Pachulia on Thursday.
• The Wolves pursued shooting guards J.J. Redick and O.J. Mayo before signing Martin last summer. New basketball boss Flip Saunders had dinner with Mayo in Los Angeles on the first night teams could talk with free agents, but Mayo — who signed with Milwaukee after Redick signed with the Clippers and Martin with the Wolves — apparently has a selective memory.
He said before Thursday’s game that he never talked with the Wolves. “They must have lost my number,” he said.
