West Draft Review: Jarell Martin

Steve Smith and Sekou Smith analyze Memphis' drafting of Jarell Martin with the 25th pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

— Memphis Grizzlies first-round draft pick Jarell Martin says he has a stress fracture in his foot that will prevent him from playing in any summer league games.

Martin and second-round pick Andrew Harrison were introduced Monday. Martin says he "overworked my body" throughout the pre-draft process.

Martin says: "We'll see when we get back how things are going, but overall I'm getting better. It is very tough, but we've got to look for later on down the road and do what's best."
