Flip Saunders has given no indication that he is willing to part with Kevin Martin or Corey Brewer, according to Jerry Zgoda of Minnesota Star Tribune.
The Timberwolves were reportedly trying to unload the $21 million left on Martin's deal in a Kevin-Love trade. Although the terms of the agreement reported by Yahoo! Sports did not include other players besides Love, it is still possible that the framework of the deal changes by August 23rd. Both Martin and Brewer can provide solid fantasy value, but are not worth early-round picks. Aug 7 - 2:27 PM

The Timberwolves may try to include Kevin Martin and J.J. Barea in any trade that involves Kevin Love.

Dealing away Martin and Barea would clear about $24.7 in guaranteed salary off the Wolves' books, while clearing more minutes in the backcourt for No. 13 pick Zach LaVine. The Bulls and Nuggets may still be in the mix for Love, but the Cavaliers appear to be the favorites if they consent to packaging Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett, a future first-round pick, and enough spare parts to make the salaries match.

The Nuggets are offering Kenneth Faried, Wilson Chandler and the 11th pick in the 2014 draft for Kevin Love and Kevin Martin, according to Chris Broussard of

This doesn't really make much sense for the Wolves at all. While Faried had a career year, he can't get his own shot and most of his production comes off the glass. As for Martin, the Wolves aren't too attached to him after giving him a four-year, $28 million deal. This deal probably isn't going to be accepted.

Kevin Martin scored a season-high 36 points during a 136-130 loss to the Jazz on Wednesday, adding two boards, one assist, two steals and three 3-pointers in 40 minutes.

He made 12-of-24 from the field and had a big improvement from his 8.0 points per game in his previous two games. Martin missed six games before this stretch due to a foot injury and he's said he's fought some plantar fasciitis this season and the offseason should help him. He'll be considered as an injury risk heading into next season based on his injury-plagued career.
Apr 16 - 11:51 PM

Kevin Martin thinks that "a touch of plantar fasciitis" caused the sore right foot that sidelined him five games before his return on Sunday.

Martin played poorly with two points in 18 minutes on Sunday, and with nothing to play for the Wolves may opt to rest him in one or both of their final games. At the very least, fantasy owners should keep a close eye on the Wolves' injury report.
Apr 14 - 10:02 AM

Kevin Martin struggled in his return from a heel injury on Sunday, missing all eight of his field goals to score two points with one rebound in a loss vs. the Kings.

The Wolves have won four of their past seven games despite myriad injuries, but their 40-40 record puts them six full games out of the playoff picture. Martin obviously wasn't his usual efficient self, and he only got to the free throw line two times, so owners should continue to monitor his status for the Wolves' final two games.
Apr 13 - 11:42 PM

Kevin Martin (heel) will start Sunday's game vs. the Kings.

Martin had sharp pain in his foot last week and it's not entirely clear what the issue was, but he feels well enough to suit up for the Wolves' third-to-last game. His return should send Corey Brewer to SF and rookie Robbie Hummel to the bench.
Apr 13 - 8:04 PM

Kevin Martin will not play against the Rockets on Friday due to his foot injury.

He won't get to play against his former team and is likely out for the season. Martin is still fighting pain in his foot and the oft-injured guard should just shut it down. This late injury will likely cause him to slide in fantasy drafts next season, and rightfully so.
Apr 11 - 7:16 PM

Kevin Martin (foot) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) are doubtful for Friday's game against the Wolves.

We'd be surprised to see either player again this season. This will be Martin's fifth straight game on the sideline as he fights sharp pain in his foot. Look for a starting five of Ricky Rubio, Robbie Hummel, Corey Brewer, Kevin Love and Gorgui Dieng. Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee) are out. JJ Barea (back) is questionable.
Apr 11 - 10:53 AM

Kevin Martin will not play against the Bulls due to his foot injury.

He's dealing with some sharp pain in his foot and it looks like he'll be out for the season. Martin has dealt with several injuries in his career and will have another injury red flag on his draft value next season.
Apr 9 - 6:59 PM

Kevin Martin will sit out Tuesday's game due to sharp pain in his right heel.

Martin said he felt as though there was "a knife" stabbing him with each step following Wednesday's game, and it's unclear when or if he might return this season. Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee) are also expected to sit out, forcing bigger roles onto probable starter Robbie Hummel, Corey Brewer, J.J. Barea and Luc Mbah a Moute.
Apr 7 - 1:50 PM

Kevin Martin said that he's missed the past two games because of a stabbing pain in his right heel which began after Wednesday's game vs. Memphis.

"The next day it felt like a knife in the bottom of my damn heel with every step," he said. "I’m just trying to get that pain out. I don’t know what it is, I don’t need to know. It might just be an old man injury." The Wolves are limping to the finish line with Martin, Nikola Pekovic (ankle), Kevin Love (back), Chase Budinger (ankle) and Shabazz Muhammad (knee) all banged up and questionable to play on Tuesday.
Apr 7 - 10:47 AM

Kevin Martin (sore right foot) will join Shabazz Muhammad (knee) and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) on the sidelines for Saturday's game.

The Wolves are limping toward the end of their disappointing season, and the absence of Martin and Muhammad will ensure extra playing time for Corey Brewer and Chase Budinger. Fantasy owners should consider Martin questionable to return vs. the Spurs on Tuesday.
Apr 5 - 5:59 PM

Kevin Martin (sore right foot) will not play against the Heat on Friday night.

There was no word as to what happened with his foot just yet and he will miss his first game since Feb. 25. Martin looked healthy on Wednesday and played 34 minutes, so we'll consider him questionable for Saturday's game vs. the Magic. Chase Budinger is likely going to start.
Apr 4 - 7:16 PM

Kevin Martin quickly recovered from Thursday's single-digit scoring game, dropping 25 points on 6-of-16 FGs and 11-of-12 FTs in Sunday's loss.

He chipped in two 3-pointers with one assist and one steal, which is about all that his fantasy owners can expect from the veteran scoring guard. K-Mart has missed nine games this season, well below his career average for DNPs, and on a cumulative basis he's returning solid top-75 value with a predictable emphasis on scoring, 3s and FT percentage.
