Good news alert: Martin to play

Kevin Martin will play tonight, logging his 10th game of the season against the Los Angeles Clippers at Arco Arena.
"I'm going to give it a go," said Martin, who has been out with a left ankle injury that included bone bruises. "It's just getting better every day and that's all I can ask for. I feel ready to go."
Kings interim coach Kenny Natt said getting Martin back is a nice treat.
"Yeah, it is good news," Natt said. "Being able to actually have him out there and have him provide us with another threat is going to be a big plus for our team."
Natt said he is still debating whether he will insert Martin into the starting lineup tonight.
"That's a game-time decision," Natt said.
Martin, who has missed the last 10 games, has played in only nine games this season. Last week, Martin returned to practice, where his progress has been impressive, Natt said.
On a side note, the results of Spencer Hawes' abdominal MRI were not yet available. Hawes has been experiencing soreness in his abdomen and missed Monday's practice and this morning's shootaround. The results of his MRI will determine whether he plays tonight.
