Martin MRI confirms prognosis; Salmons to start

Kevin Martin's MRI taken today confirmed the right groin strain, and the four to six week window of recovery still seems to apply.
Before the MRI was taken, the prognosis given by the Kings of four to six weeks even surprised coach Reggie Theus, who hadn't been told the official word until he was addressing the media on Wednesday. He seemed surprised, as his past experiences with the injury (including his own) had led him to believe strained groins were in the 10 day to two or three week range. What's more, as I pointed out in today's piece, Bonzi Wells had a partial tear in his groin a few years back and his original prognosis was three to four weeks. Martin, who joked on Thursday that this was "Depression Day No. 2" in his new hoops existence, said he will take his time with the recovery so as not to suffer the same fate as Wells.
As for who takes the spot, Theus announced on Thursday that it would be swingman John Salmons, proving that he must have checked with our highly-educated readers before making his decision.
For any Kings fans feeling nostalgic over the loss of Martin and looking to take a trip down memory lane, I'm here for ya. - Sam Amick
