Kenyon Martin (ankle) has not yet resumed on-court workouts and there is no timetable for his return.

The Knicks are solely focused on making the playoffs and they've won eight straight games without K-Mart or Andrea Bargnani, neither of whom is a likely fantasy option for the rest of the season.

Kenyon Martin (ankle) will not play against the Jazz on Friday.

He is out of his walking boot but coach Mike Woodson doesn't know when Martin will go through on-court work. The Knicks are going to manage his minutes upon his return and he's completely hands off for fantasy purposes. The Knicks will start Ray Felton, J.R. Smith, Carmelo Anthony, Amare Stoudemire and Tyson Chandler tonight vs. a vulnerable Jazz defense.
Mar 7 - 5:57 PM

Kenyon Martin said on Monday he has been getting plasma-rich platelet treatment on his ankle.

He is getting better and will be re-evaluated on Thursday. Martin just can't stay healthy this season and the Knicks probably won't give him many minutes even when he's close to 100 percent. Additionally, he said it's been torture watching the Knicks play defense.
Mar 3 - 6:42 PM

Kenyon Martin (ankle) is still wearing a walking boot and he has no projected return date.

Martin clamored for more minutes earlier in the season but it was only a matter of time before his chronically-damaged ankles betrayed him. He belongs on the waiver wire in all leagues.
Feb 27 - 6:48 PM

Kenyon Martin (ankle) is not with the Knicks and will not play against the Grizzlies on Tuesday.

His ankle injury has been a problem throughout the season and he should be considered doubtful at best for Wednesday's game against the Pelicans. Martin is not worth owning in almost any format.
Feb 17 - 6:59 PM

Kenyon Martin (ankle) will be out for the rest of the week and could be out until the All-Star break.

That would rule him out for tonight and he was sporting a walking boot on his left foot at the game. Martin just can't stay healthy this year and the Knicks won't be allowed to play him big minutes even when he's back. Amare Stoudemire will be the main bench big man in a smaller lineup against the Blazers tonight.
Feb 5 - 6:23 PM

Kenyon Martin (ankle) will not play against the Bucks on Monday night.

He returned from an ankle injury on Saturday and is dealing with some soreness. Martin can't stay healthy this year and won't have fantasy value in almost any format because of it.
Feb 3 - 6:44 PM

Kenyon Martin returned from an ankle injury and had four points, two rebounds and two blocks in 15 minutes on Saturday.

That takes him off the injury report for now, but you have to think his next ailment is just around the corner.
Feb 2 - 1:42 AM

Kenyon Martin will not play on Thursday due to his injured left ankle.

K-Mart's ankles are chronically damaged and this comes as no surprise despite his vow to play "without a question." The Knicks' veteran PF remains day-to-day, a tag which could essentially be applied to him in perpetuity.
Jan 30 - 6:40 PM

Kenyon Martin rolled his left ankle during the first half of Tuesday's game, but he vowed "without a question" to play vs. the Cavs on Thursday.

"I probably could have finished the game if we weren't up so big," said Martin. His ankles are a constant source of concern and his playing time is too limited to rely on him in standard leagues, even with Andrea Bargnani (elbow) and Amare Stoudemire (ankle) on the shelf.
Jan 29 - 9:36 AM

Kenyon Martin played nine minutes in his return from an ankle injury, hitting 3-of-3 shots for six points, one rebound and one block on Tuesday.

K-Mart probably won't see enough minutes and even went to the locker room due to his left ankle tonight. That will leave him questionable for his next game, but he's not worth starting when healthy right now after sitting out the last couple weeks with the injury.
Jan 28 - 11:12 PM

Kenyon Martin (sprained left ankle) went to the locker room in the first half of Tuesday's game and is available to return.

It's his first game back after missing five games due to a sprained ankle. Martin simply can't stay healthy this year and the Knicks are going to have to manage him minutes even if he's at his peak healthy. Jeremy Tyler stepped into his minutes initially, but has very little fantasy value.
Jan 28 - 8:39 PM

Kenyon Martin will return from his ankle injury vs. Boston on Tuesday.

He'll come off the bench behind a starting frontcourt of Tyson Chandler and Carmelo Anthony, and his defensive prowess may give him some appeal in deep formats. Given the chronic nature of his ankle problems, however, he's not a smart bet for long-term value.
Jan 28 - 5:52 PM

Kenyon Martin (ankle) won't return until at least Thursday.

Martin said that he won't return before the original two week timetable, which would have him returning next Thursday at the earliest. Martin's latest ankle sprain is just one of many for the big man this season, so it would be a leap of faith to think he'll provide much fantasy value the rest of the way.
