An MRI taken on Kevin Martin's left ankle today at the UC Davis Medical Center confirmed his sprain, and the Kings shooting guard is expected to miss seven to 10 days.

Based on the previous comments of Kings coach Reggie Theus, he may start Bobby Jackson at Martin's depleted position. Swingman Francisco Garcia (strained right calf) has yet to play in the regular season and is expected to miss at least another 10 days, and guard Quincy Douby is expected to remain out with a sore right ankle. Martin's time span would mean he will miss anywhere from four to six games. More to come with updates in this blog post.

I doubt Theus will take Mikki out of the line up so soon. He hasn't budged yet even though he wants to play the guys who will rebound (Hawes and Thompson) but he won't start them. :confused:

I doubt it...that injury was a freak thing where he got caught in the air and landed awkwardly. That stuff can happen to anyone. The key is his knees are clean.

We will be fine. Martin will be back soon. I think this is a good test for our team. We are on a bit of a roll. Now we will see if some others can step up. Now that our youngsters have felt what winning is like, I am sure they will do all they can to keep thier high. Start Hawes, Miller, Salmons, Udrich, and BB or JT. B-Jax is done. Maybe start Greene instead of Hawes and see what he can do.
