Ailing Martin, Lawson both out
Nuggets forward Kenyon Martin was held out of Friday night’s
game against the Indiana Pacers because of a recurrence of left
knee tendinitis, joining rookie Ty Lawson, who remains sidelined by
a bruised left shoulder.
Martin, whose 9.6 rebounds per game ranks 12th in the league,
missed three games last month because of soreness and swelling in
the same knee.
Lawson, a key reserve for the Nuggets, missed his third
consecutive game. He hasn’t played since banging his shoulder in a
collision Sunday with Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum.
