Kevin Martin To Miss Fourth Straight Game With Shoulder Injury

The Houston Rockets will once again be without starting guard Kevin Martin who is missing tonight's game against the Phoenix Suns, according to the Houston Chronicle's Jonathan Feigen. This will be the fourth straight game that Martin has missed and there is no timetable for his return as he is considered day-to-day.

In Martin's absence the Rockets have gone 2-1 with the only loss being Saturday against the Los Angeles Clippers. Courtney Lee has been starting in place of the injured Martin over the past three games and in that time he has averaged 18.3 points. Against the Clippers, Lee went off for 25 points, made four three-points shots, had five rebounds and zero turnovers in 40 minutes.
