Father Time has eluded 35 year old Kenyon Martin who hadn’t been on an NBA court for almost ten months before Glen Grunwald snatched him up! The last game he had played was vs the Spurs in the playoffs on May 20, 2012 as a member of the Clippers. He has been playing like a man possessed since given the starting center role six games ago back on March 14th as a New York Knick.
Tyson Chandler went down with what appeared to be a right knee contusion at first, and since has been suffering with a stiff neck. As long as he remains out, K-Mart is the one to grab should you be lucky enough to still be in the playoffs in fantasy leagues. All the former 1st round overall pick of the then N.J. Nets has done is average 12.2 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1 steal, and a block over the six games. K-Mart, picked up mainly for his defensive prowess, has scored in double-digits in four of the six games he’s started.
Martin has shot an amazing 33-49 (67.3%) from the field and managed to turn the ball over just twice in just around 30 minutes a night. Not bad for someone who hasn’t picked up a ball for almost a year before he was given a 10-day contract with the Knicks at the end of February.
For those of you in deeper leagues, it might not be bad to take out a flier on the PF/C veteran or even grab him off waivers, until Chandler returns. The Knicks play four times this week so the timing couldn’t be better. For those of you not into fantasy basketball, just sit back and relax and watch a rejuvenated Kenyon Martin turn back the hands of time…
