The Wolves issued a press release about Kevin Martin:

Minneapolis/St. Paul - Kevin Martin underwent successful surgery this morning to repair a fracture in his right wrist. The surgery was performed by Dr. Thomas Graham at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. Martin is expected to be sidelined approximately 6-8 weeks.

The injury occurred at the 6:48 mark of the first quarter during Minnesota's 115-99 win over New York on Wednesday, November 19.

Through nine games this season Martin is averaging 20.4 points on 48.3 percent shooting from the floor and 48.1 percent from the three-point line.

I hope they got the correct wrist.

Good luck to K-Mart in his recovery.

On another note, the Wolves also issued a statement from Thad Young, thanking everyone for their support and urging women to get screened for breast cancer, the disease that caused the death of his mother.
