Martin produced 19 points (4-12 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 8-8 FT), seven rebounds, four steals and three assists in 35 minutes off the bench Wednesday in the Hornets' 109-98 win over the Heat. Twin brother Cody has been the more consistent member of the Charlotte rotation this season, but it's been Caleb who has attracted more of the attention lately. After scoring no more than 12 points in any of his first 16 outings with Charlotte, Martin has churned out 42 over the past two games. He's also offered value on the defensive end, racking up seven steals and two blocks between the contests. He was helped by Terry Rozier (illness) sitting out Wednesday, but Martin may have at least earned himself a temporary 20-plus-minute role whenever the Hornets and the league's other 29 teams return to action.
Martin finished with 23 points (8-10 FG, 5-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four assists, two blocks and three steals in 37 minutes during a 143-138 double-overtime loss to the Hawks on Monday. Martin fell one point shy of doubling his season high in scoring before fouling out of the contest. The rookie has quietly built up his role on the team in the weeks since his call-up, and with so much in flux for the Hornets, it's possible he could continue seeing high usage as long as he keeps improving.
Martin totaled 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 27 minutes during Tuesday's 104-103 loss to the Spurs. Martin has reached double figures in scoring twice in the last five games. Moreover, he has seen 20-plus minutes in six of his last nine appearances. Nevertheless, Martin is merely a dart throw in daily leagues.
Martin had 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt), three rebounds, two assists and a block in 26 minutes Tuesday, as the Hornets fell to the Pacers 119-80. Martin's 11 points marked a career high, as did the 26 minutes. In what became an extreme display of garbage-time minutes, Martin displayed a hint of upside. Given how poorly the Hornets offense has been this season, there is always the chance he carves out a bench role. For now, Martin remains far removed from fantasy radars.
Martin is starting Wednesday against the Timberwolves, Rod Boone of The Athletic reports. With Terry Rozier unavailable due to a knee injury, Martin will pick up his first career start. He's played at least 20 minutes in each of the past two games, posting averages of 2.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in those contests.
