(Boulder-CO) The Denver Post is reporting today that Kenyon Martin will be undergoing arthroscopic surgery at the Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Vail, Colorado sometime today. Nuggets officials are speculating that it will be at least five or six weeks before they can start thinking about Kenyon’s return. The surgery is to remove loose bodies from the power forwards ailing knee.
Another update for Nuggets fans is concerning guard Julius Hodge. Hodge is still recovering from gun shot wounds and complications from that injury suffered during last season’s campaign. On November 9th, Julius endured a skin graph for an infection in his foot and is not expected to return to physical activity until at least the 22nd of November. If Earl Boykins continues to struggle it sure would be nice to have a point-forward on the team. A speedy and complete recovery for Hodge is all that the Nuggets nation can hope for.
UPDATE on the UPDATE: The Nuggets play-by-play annoucer, Chris Marlowe, informed the Nuggets Nation that Kenyon Martin's surgery revealed a situation worse than expected and Martin will miss the entire season. What is with this team losing players for the season every year in the first five games? Is this some kind of joke or is it a curse?
