Jarell Martin injury update

Memphis Grizzlies forward Jarell Martin will undergo a procedure to alleviate soreness in his left foot, the team announced today. Martin will miss the remainder of the 2016 NBA Playoffs and is expected to make a full recovery.

Martin originally underwent surgery on Sept. 3, 2015 to repair a left foot fracture sustained one day earlier in a collision with another player during a workout. A follow-up procedure had been previously scheduled for the offseason, but after Martin experienced recent soreness in the foot, it was determined the best course of action for Martin and the organization was to address the discomfort immediately.

Selected by the Grizzlies with the 25th overall pick in the first round of the 2015 NBA Draft following his sophomore season at LSU, Martin played 27 games (zero starts) and averaged 5.7 points and 3.2 rebounds in 14.1 minutes during his rookie season with the Grizzlies. He has appeared in each of Memphis’ first two postseason games during the Western Conference First Round against San Antonio and averaged 4.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 23.0 minutes. In addition to his time in the NBA, he appeared in 10 games (six starts) for the NBA Development League’s Iowa Energy and averaged 15.0 points and 6.0 rebounds in 28.9 minutes over six assignments.
