The hits just keep coming for the Timberwolves: An MRI taken today shows starting shooting guard Kevin Martin fractured his wrist in Wednesday's victory over New York.
He is listed as out indefinitely and will be re-evaliated in the coming days to determine whether he'll need surgery.
The team said he broke his right wrist midway through Wednesday's first quarter.
That's his shooting wrist, of course.
You might recall he went on to score a season-high 37 points that night.
Surgery likely is the fastest way to get him back on the court, perhaps in four to six weeks
Add him to the list of injured that also includes Nikola Pekovic, Ricky Rubio and Ronny Turiaf. Forward Thad Young is out for tonight's game against San Antonio at Target Center as well.
A little bit of history here:
Martin broke the other wrist -- his left, non-shooting one -- in November 2009 and did so the same night he scored 48 points and then went out and scored 29 the next.
He had surgery then and missed the next two-plus months.
