Kevin Martin Injury: Rockets Guard Returns To Lineup Against Timberwolves

After sitting out two straight games with a heel injury, Kevin Martin will make his return to the Rockets' lineup Monday night when the team takes on the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Martin enters tonight's game averaging 20.1 points per game for the Rockets who won both games without him. After a slow start, Houston has been red hot of late winning nine of their last 10 games and are currently 12-8 and a half game behind the Dallas Mavericks for the Southwest Division lead.

Rockets coach Kevin McHale indicated that he might limit Martin's minutes somewhat tonight which could mean a slight bump for Chase Buddinger who helped fill in during Martin's absence.
