Nuggets’ Martin to have knee surgery

Denver, CO (Sports Network) – Denver Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin is out
indefinitely because of a right knee injury.

Martin missed Wednesday’s tilt against the Knicks — a 109-107 loss — after
an MRI before the game revealed loose bodies in his right knee that will
require surgery to clean out.

No date has been set for the arthroscopic procedure and there is no timetable
yet for Martin’s return. The Cincinnati product is averaging 9.5 points and 10
rebounds per game in two games so far this season.

In his seven-year career, which also includes a four-year stint with the New
Jersey Nets, Martin is averaging 14.8 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per
game in 411 career contests.
