Martin posted 10 points (4-15 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 0-1 FT), six rebounds, four assists and two steals Sunday in a 124-95 loss.
Martin struggled shooting from the floor making only four of his 15 attempts from the court. One positive from his performance Sunday was his defensive ability as he snagged two steals. The rookie will likely be a key piece for the Rockets going into next season.
Martin scored 13 points (5-12 FG, 0-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT) and grabbed nine rebounds over 34 minutes Friday in a 122-115 victory versus the Clippers.
Martin struggled from beyond the arc in the win but went 5-of-6 from two-point range. He narrowly missed his second straight double-double, finishing with nine boards for the second time in three games. Martin has started six straight contests for the Rockets, averaging 20.7 points, 9.2 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 1.0 blocks per game over that stretch.
Martin finished Wednesday's loss to the Lakers with 20 points (7-10 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-6 FT), 10 rebounds and three blocked shots across 37 minutes.
With Houston limited to an eight-man rotation, Martin picked up his fifth straight start and compiled his third double-double during that span. His 37 minutes were actually the fewest he has played as a starter this season, highlighting the long look he has received down the stretch. Martin has performed well in May, posting per-game averages of 18.6 points, 8.7 boards and 1.1 blocks.
Martin produced 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, four assists, two steals and a blocked shot across 39 minutes in Monday's 140-129 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Martin has now started four consecutive games with the short-handed Rockets, and he is making a strong case for a continued relationship with the squad next season. The rookie has multipositional flexibility and provides much-needed defensive muscle in the paint.
Martin recorded 27 points (11-19 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals across 39 minutes in Saturday's loss to the Jazz.
Martin has been enjoying a great run with the Rockets due to the rash of injuries that are affecting Houston, and he's taking advantage of that -- he now has two double-doubles over his last three appearances and has scored in double digits in five games in a row. Martin is averaging 21.0 points per game over that five-game span.
Martin tallied 26 points (10-21 FG, 6-10 3Pt), seven rebounds and seven assists in 39 minutes during Friday's 141-133 loss to the Bucks.
The 20-year-old has now scored in double digits in six out of his last seven games. Martin has been on a roll lately, averaging 19.5 points, 8.0 rebounds, 3.3 rebounds and 2.3 three-pointers over his last four games. The rookie should get plenty of minutes down the stretch with Houston dealing with a litany of injuries.
Martin totaled 23 points (10-17 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), 10 rebounds, six assists and one block across 44 minutes in a 135-115 loss to the 76ers on Wednesday.
Martin got the start because Houston had just seven active players going into Wednesday's contest, and the Rockets lost Kevin Porter (ankle) in the third quarter. The forward played well in his increased role, collecting new career-high point and assist totals and the second double-double of his career. Martin has scored in double figures in five of his last six games and is someone to monitor in fantasy leagues down the stretch.
Martin will start Wednesday's game against the 76ers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The 20-year-old will receive the start Wednesday since Houston has an extensive injury report. Martin had 18 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-8 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists in 42 minutes in his only other start this season.
Martin had 13 points (5-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and a block across 32 minutes off the bench in Sunday's loss to the Knicks.
Martin has scored in double digits in four of his last five appearances and seems to have carved a steady role as a bench weapon for Houston ahead of the final weeks of the regular season. He's undoubtedly going through his most prolific stretch of the campaign and is averaging 13.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 1.2 steals per contest during that five-game span.
Martin is coming off the bench Tuesday against the Timberwolves, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
With Kelly Olynyk, Christian Wood and Jae'Sean Tate all available for the Rockets, Martin will resume his usual role off the bench following a one-game stint in the starting five. This month, he's averaged 7.1 points and 4.7 rebounds in 22.4 minutes.
Martin recorded 18 points (7-12 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-8 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists across 42 minutes in Saturday's 129-116 loss to the Nuggets.
The rookie was a shoo-in to receive extended minutes in Saturday's loss, as he's been a fairly consistent contributor with the team since his promotion from the G-League in March. With only seven healthy players available, Martin got a golden opportunity to start and strut his stuff. His 18 points were a career-high, and he will still log around 25 minutes of playing time when his role as a starter comes to an end.
Martin is in the starting five for Saturday's contest against Denver, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.
The Rockets remain decimated by injuries, and John Wall (rest) is additionally getting a night off Saturday. Martin has handled more than 20 minutes in four of the last five games, and he should be set for increase opportunities Saturday.
Martin collected 13 points (4-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two blocks across 20 minutes Monday in a 133-130 loss to the Suns.
Martin didn't see a notable uptick in playing time with Danuel House (ankle) sidelined, as Kelly Olynyk instead picked up the start at power forward in House's stead. Even so, Martin was still able to deliver a well-rounded line, which included his first double-digit scoring outing since March 17. He'll likely continue to see minutes in the low-to-mid-20s while House is expected to remain out for a few more games, but don't expect Martin to replicate this type of line with much consistency.
Martin recorded four points (2-2 FG), four rebounds and one steal during Wednesday's loss to Brooklyn.
Across 14 minutes of action, the rookie went perfect from the field for a third consecutive game (a span over which he's gone 8-for-8 overall) and grabbed at least three rebounds for a fourth straight contest. Martin has averaged 19.6 minutes, 5.8 points and 4.4 rebounds over his past five outings, so despite these relatively positive returns, he doesn't have much fantasy value right now.
Martin registered 13 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and nine rebounds in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 108-94 loss to the Warriors.
The 20-year-old continues to play heavy minutes off the bench for the injury-riddled Rockets. Over his past five games, Martin is averaging 13.8 points and 7.4 rebounds while shooting 55.3 percent from the field. The 11-28 Rockets are clearly in rebuilding mode at this point, so Martin should have a good chance at maintaining a sizable role off the bench even as the team gets healthier.
Martin managed just seven points (3-6 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two blocks in 34 minutes during Tuesday's 119-107 loss to Atlanta.
Martin cooled off substantially during the loss but the playing remains more than encouraging. He had been killing it prior to this game and so if you added him in the last couple of days, he is worth sitting on for at least a handful of games. It appears they are going to provide him with ample opportunities on a nightly basis making him an intriguing active stash.
Martin tallied 21 points (6-10 FG, 2-3 3Pt, 7-8 FT), four rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block in 30 minutes during Sunday's blowout loss to the Rockets.
The 20-year-old logged the second-most minutes on the team Sunday, delivering an impressive all-around performance. In the three games since being called up from the G League, he's averaging 16.3 points, 10.8 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.7 blocks while shooting 50 percent from the field in the span. Until John Wall (knee), Christian Wood (ankle) and Eric Gordon (groin) return to the lineup, feel free to stream Martin if you need across-the-board production.
Martin totaled 15 points (6-15 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-5 FT), 10 rebounds, three steals and one blocked shot across 29 minutes Friday in a loss to the Jazz.
After falling one board shy of his first career double-double Thursday, Martin accomplished the feat Friday with a 15-point, 10-rebound effort. He also made his presence known on the defensive end with three steals and a block. Martin is getting plenty of opportunity on a Houston squad that is severely undermanned, as he has averaged 30.5 minutes over his past two games. That isn't likely to keep up once the Rockets' injured starters re-enter the lineup, but Martin could still have some moderate value as a rebounder and shot blocker with a modest scoring punch should he be able to cement his spot as one of the team's top reserves.
Martin racked up 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-1 3Pt), nine rebounds and three blocked shots across 32 minutes in Thursday's 125-105 loss to the Kings.
Martin looked great in his first game back from an extended stint in the G League, finishing with the most points (13) and boards (nine) of his young career. The 20-year-old has swatted three shots in each of his past two NBA games and averaged 1.8 blocks during his time in the G League, highlighting the explosive athleticism he brings to the table as a 6-foot-7 forward. Martin could get decent run for the Rockets considering that Houston has little chance of making a playoff push.
Martin was recalled from the G League on Saturday, Adam Wexler of Sportstalk 790 Houston reports.
Martin's G League season is over, and he'll re-join the Rockets. In 10 G League appearances with the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, he averaged 17.5 points, 11.3 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.7 assists in 31.5 minutes. He's unlikely to have a fantasy-relevant role with Houston the rest of the way.
