Bad news for K-Mart and the Nuggets. K-Marts Knee still giving him problems. Doesn't look like Martin will be back for the game against the Mavs. Also in the article it talks about how one of Martins goals was to play 82 games this season. Some good quotes by Coach Karl and other Nuggets. Good article to read over.

Once again, Denver Nuggets power forward Kenyon Martin is fighting the battle of wounded knee.
Already missing reserve Nene, likely for the season, the Nuggets beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 102-91 on Sunday night without their starter Martin.

Six months removed from arthroscopic surgery, Martin has experienced soreness in his left knee since the start of training camp but played through the pain for the first six games of the season.

Nuggets coach George Karl said he was unsure how many games Martin might miss.

"There's no question that his knee is very sore," Karl said. "How he manages it, how we manage it, is going to be part of the personality of the season for at least a couple months."

In the Denver Post article (I believe the one 23AJ quoted was from the RMN), it mentioned that Kenyon had a microfracture procedure; however it wasn't as major of a procedure as what Kidd had.

This is scary because the only details that were released in the summer was that it was a simple scope. The big question on the microfracture surgery is was it on a weight-berring portion of his knee or not? That is the difference between Kidd's surgery and the one Webber and Houston had.
