Good for the Blazers' Playoff Chances: Kenyon Martin/ George Karl Out for the Season?

18

If the Blazers end up playing the Nuggets in the 1st or 2nd round, the loss of K-Mart and absence of George Karl for Denver may give us quite an edge and allow us to beat them in a 7 game series. "Along with wondering if coach George Karl will return for the playoffs, the slumping Denver Nuggets have one other pressing concern: Will Kenyon Martin take the court again this season? Martin has accepted he may have already played his final game. He described his chances of playing in any of the Nuggets’ remaining seven regular-season games as 'dim.' The Nuggets are 10-10 this season without Martin, who averages 11.8 points, a team-high 9.6 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.05 blocks. Unproven center Johan Petro has started in Martin’s place. The drop-off has been noticeable."
