Kevin Martin (illness) has been a full participant during the Spurs past two practices.

Martin was forced to miss Game 4 of San Antonio's first-round series against the Grizzlies with an illness, but he should be good to go for Saturday's Game 1 matchup with the Thunder. However, with everyone on the Spurs roster healthy, Martin won't play enough minutes to matter in most formats.
Apr 28 - 2:36 PM

Kevin Martin (illness) will not play in Game 4 on Sunday vs. Memphis.

K-Mart said that he's feeling better, but it sounds like the Spurs just want to be cautious. He played an average of 14.5 minutes in the first two games of the series, but keep in mind that they were both blowouts.
Apr 24 - 12:27 PM

Kevin Martin is dealing with an illness and will not return on Friday.

The Spurs were trying to take some pressure of their key rotation players, but Martin won't be able to help much tonight. He should be OK for Sunday.
Apr 22 - 11:42 PM

Kevin Martin scored 10 points with four rebounds, four assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 15 minutes against the Warriors on Thursday.

He is a good bet to start with the Spurs fully expected to rest most of their guys on Friday. Give Martin a look in DFS or as a stream for Friday in Denver.
Apr 8 - 1:31 AM

Kevin Martin started for Danny Green (rest) on Friday against the Grizzlies with 13 points, three rebounds, two assists and three 3-pointers in 34 minutes.

He will likely be moving back to the bench on Saturday with Danny Green (rest) returning. Martin probably won't be worth using in most leagues even with Manu Ginobili resting.
Mar 26 - 1:01 AM

Kevin Martin and Kyle Anderson are starting on the wings against the Grizzlies on Friday.

The Spurs will be without Danny Green, Patty Mills and Kawhi Leonard on the perimeter. Martin hasn't really played much, so he does carry some risk even though he'll be looking at his best chance with his new team. Anderson should see a nice amount of run at small forward.
Mar 25 - 6:56 PM

Spurs coach Gregg Popovich isn't worried about the prospect of Kevin Martin not fitting in.

"If I thought it was too late, I wouldn’t have done it," Popovich said. "If I didn’t think so, I wouldn’t have brought him. Kevin’s basically a scorer. He’s an experienced NBA player, but he scores. He spreads the floor. He gets to the free throw line. He knows how to play." Martin made his debut for the Spurs on Thursday vs. the Bulls and played eight minutes, scoring one point with one steal. It's unclear what type of role he will eventually have, but he's only on the radar in deeper leagues for now.

Kevin Martin will be available to play Thursday vs. the Bulls.

Martin was a full participant during shootaround, and is currently going through his pregame warmups, so it'll be interesting to see how many minutes he earns in his San Antonio debut. This is a wait-and-see situation in most leagues.
Mar 10 - 6:46 PM

Kevin Martin was present at Spurs shootaround on Thursday.

Martin was officially signed on Wednesday and looks to be available for Thursday's game against the Bulls. While Martin will provide the Spurs with an experienced scorer of the bench, his fantasy value is limited to deeper leagues as he'll be battling for minutes with Danny Green and Manu Ginobili.
Mar 10 - 12:42 PM

The Spurs have officially signed Kevin Martin.

Rasual Butler was cut in order to make room for Martin on the roster, and while he'll add some backcourt depth to San Antonio, it's unlikely he earns enough minutes to matter in most leagues while fighting for playing time with Danny Green and Manu Ginobili. He could, however, be worth a punt play in daily leagues on the days San Antonio rests their main guys.

Mar 9 - 1:42 PM

Kevin Martin is not currently with the Spurs, meaning he will not play on Monday vs. the Pacers.

Martin still hasn't been officially signed by the team, and this leaves his status for Tuesday's contest vs. Minnesota in question, as well. Even when the agreement is finalized, Martin won't have a role that offers any kind of fantasy value.
Mar 7 - 12:10 PM

Kevin Martin has reportedly reached an agreement to sign with the Spurs.

Martin is chasing a championship, and while he'll add some depth to the Spurs backcourt, it's unlikely he earns enough minutes in San Antonio to matter in most leagues.
Mar 4 - 10:02 PM

The Wolves and Kevin Martin have reached an agreement on a contract buyout.

The Spurs are the favorites to land Martin, but the Rockets, Mavericks and Hawks are also in pursuit of the veteran. K-Mart would likely have a limited role on all of those teams, so there's no reason to stash him outside of deeper formats. Zach LaVine's role in Minnesota is now even safer.
Mar 1 - 11:40 PM

Kevin Martin did not play on Sunday, as expected.

The Wolves are reportedly working on a buyout for KevMart, which would allow him to sign with a contender -- the Spurs are reportedly the favorite if he clears waivers. He'll need to be waived by Mar. 1 to be eligible for the playoff roster, however, so we should have resolution very soon.
