Re: Kenyon Martin or Tyrus Thomas
"Kenyon Martin won't gain much after the Nuggets lost Nene for six weeks on Wednesday. Martin has been cleared to play in back-to-backs, so he will also play both Friday and Saturday, but Karl said he isn't "going to go crazy on the minutes", and he intends to keep Martin in the 20-minute range.
So much for increased value with Nene out. If you are hoping to see the old Kenyon Martin anytime soon, you'd better have some old Nets games on VHS. Martin might not consistently play 30 minutes at any point this season, and if you can trade him for anyone worth having, we recommend it."
I thought Martin's value was going up, but maybe not. Both players are going to be up and down. Thomas has more upside at this point, but no matter what Krazy Karl says, I think Martin has the room for more minutes.
