Martin scored four points (1-8 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) while adding three rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 32 minutes during Saturday's 115-89 loss to the Heat.
He got the start at small forward with Tyreke Evans (ribs) sidelined and Dillon Brooks shifting to shooting guard, but Martin did little to justify the increased responsibility. The third-year player has scored in double digits just twice in eight February games, and if Evans' injury proves to be serious, Martin could actually see his court time dwindle as the Grizzlies look for more offense in that lineup spot.
Martin is starting at small forward for Saturday's contest against the Heat due to Tyreke Evans (ribs) being out, Rob Fischer of Fox Sports Southeast reports.
Martin, a third-year forward out of LSU, has seen 20.2 minutes per game this season. But, with the Grizzlies dealing with injuries to key players, he should see more run Saturday and possibly beyond. In the 15 games where he's seen at least 24 minutes, he's averaged 11.0 points and 5.8 rebounds.
Martin recorded 17 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists, one steal, and one block in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 121-114 loss to the Thunder.
Martin hit double figures in scoring for the 11th time through 53 appearances this season, and the 10th time in his last 25 games. While JaMychal Green (illness) drew the start, he was limited to 19 minutes while Martin went off. Given that the Grizzlies are not playoff contenders, the younger Martin might be able to carve out a decent role for the final portion of the campaign. Still, Green is the reliable veteran starter, and for now it's tough to envision Martin becoming valuable outside of deeper leagues.
Martin turned in nine points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 10 rebounds and one assist across 25 minutes in Sunday's 110-92 loss to the Thunder.
The young big man's rebound total was second only to position mate JaMychal Green's on the night and also represented a season high. Martin has retained a fairly consistent allotment of minutes off the second unit, but his shot attempts -- and by extension, his scoring --have fluctuated pretty significantly as well. Despite his inconsistencies, Martin remains an option for those in deeper formats who are looking for some end-of-roster help in points and rebounds.
Martin totaled six points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt), five rebounds and one steal in 31 minutes during Wednesday's 92-88 loss to Utah.
Martin shifted into the starting lineup to counter the size of the Jazz but had minimal impact on the game. Martin has shown glimpses of value across the season but fails to produce on a regular basis. The Grizzlies are rumored to be making some moves before the deadline but this is looking less likely by the minute, and Martin should remain on the waiver wire in most formats.
