Caleb Martin, sidelined for 10 games due to a knee problem, is slated to return for the Miami Heat on Thursday against the Brooklyn Nets, as confirmed by the team.
This marks his first game since the season opener when he contributed 20 minutes in a victory against Detroit. Martin’s comeback adds valuable depth to the Heat’s forward positions.
The Miami Heat’s success this last season is credited to their supporting players, notably Martin, who returns after a knee injury sidelined him since the preseason.
Martin’s last regular-season game was the opener against the Pistons, where he played 20 minutes but scored only two points as aforementioned.
Known for his standout playoff performance, he now rejoins the team during a strong four-game road trip.
With the Heat in top form, Martin’s return becomes crucial, especially in the absence of Tyler Herro. Despite a brief homecoming, a challenging five-game road stretch awaits the Heat.
Although there’s no mention of a specified minutes restriction for Martin, it’s advisable not to anticipate him immediately taking on a complete workload.
