Martin, 4 Pistons out Thursday night

Kenyon Martin will miss the Denver Nuggets’ game at Detroit with

a hand injury.

Martin also missed Tuesday’s loss at Charlotte after dislocating

his left pinkie in Philadelphia on Monday. Coach George Karl said

he expects the forward will return either Saturday or Monday.

The Pistons were missing four players: Richard Hamilton (right

ankle), Ben Gordon (left ankle), Will Bynum (ankles) and Tayshaun

Prince (back).
