Jarell Martin will miss the remainder of the playoffs after undergoing a procedure to alleviate pain in his left foot, the Grizzlies announced today.
Per the team:
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.
This seems to be related to the injury that he suffered in training camp. This is an awful shame, because it would have been fun to watch the young Grizzly get some more playoff experience, and maybe even start a game.
And the basketball injury gods chortled.
