Martin was assigned to the G-League on Friday.
The LSU product was a key component of the Grizzlies' rotation through the first month of the season, but with the roster now mostly healthy, Martin will join the Memphis Hustle, where he'll have an opportunity to see regular minutes. In Wednesday's loss to the Pacers, Martin saw his first DNP-CD of the season.
Martin is expected to move into a reserve role for Wednesday's game against the Pacers with JaMychal Green (ankle) set to return from a 12-game absence, Ronald Tillery of The Memphis Commercial Appeal reports.
Martin started all 12 games at power forward while Green was sidelined, averaging 5.3 points, 4.2 rebounds and 0.9 blocks in 20.8 minutes per contest. The third-year big man's playing time will only fall from here now that Green is healthy again, thereby eliminating most of Martin's minimal fantasy value.
Martin (knee) is active and available to play in Monday's matchup with the Bucks.
Martin was dealing with a knee injury that he likely picked up in Saturday's game against the Rockets, though after testing it out during pregame warmups, he's now been given the green light to take the court Monday. With JaMychal Green (foot/ankle) still sidelined, Martin should once again work with the top unit. In 11 starts this season, Martin has averaged 5.5 points and 4.4 rebounds across 21.7 minutes, so he's not an overly intriguing fantasy play.
Martin suffered the injury during Saturday's loss to the Rockets, but it's listed as just a tweak and he was able to go through shootaround Monday morning, so it doesn't seem like anything overly serious. He appears to be on track to play Monday, though Martin will likely test the injury out again during pregame warmups before a final decision is made on his availability.
Martin has found himself squarely in the Grizzlies' rotation this season after two years of spattered playing time. His newfound ability to stretch the court beyond the three-point line is a major reason for why he was awarded another year onto his current contract, although he might see a dip in playing time when JaMychal Green (ankle) returns at some point in mid-November.
