33-year old Kenyon Martin just doesn’t seem right. He started the year late due to injury and it looks like the injuries that Martin has had lately have sapped the juice out of his legs. Martin played in 12 games in January in which he averaged 22.3 minutes, 5.1 points, 5.1 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. He has now played in 16 games (all starts) for the Nuggets so far this year and he is averaging 21.3 minutes, 5.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game. The most troubling thing about Martin’s play this year is that he is only 5 of 15 from the free throw line (33.3%) as he is shying away from being aggressive around the basket which is usually his strength. I think his knees are still bothering him.
