Martin to play tomorrow

Kevin Martin has been cleared to play in Saturday's game against Indiana.
The Kings shooting guard said at Friday's practice that he expects to return from the Dec. 4 groin strain that has kept him out of the last 17 games.
"I think so," he said when asked if he'll play. "It’s just a matter of how I feel when I wake up (on Saturday)."
While Kings coach Reggie Theus has said Martin will come off the bench to start his return (as will Mike Bibby), Martin said last week that he no problem with the decision. Martin was asked if he was excited to hit the floor again.
"Hell yeah," he said. "I’ve been wanting to come back ever since the Chicago game (on Jan. 5). That was (the medical staff's) decision. They just cleared me last night. (Now) if I go out there and reinjure it, then it’s nobody’s fault. It’s just an accident. We took enough time, and we did enough workouts."
Now, obviously, comes the question of how it will work out with Martin back in the lineup. - Sam Amick
