Kenyon Martin of the New York Knicks will miss the team’s game on Tuesday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers due to ankle soreness. According to ESPN,

The team hopes to have both Martin and Amar’e Stoudemire available for Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Bulls.

On Tuesday, Metta World Peace will start in place of Martin.

The Knicks struggled mightily without Martin on Sunday, losing by 41 points to the Celtics.

Any ankle soreness is a bit of a concern when it involves Martin. The Knicks medical staff limited Martin’s participation in training camp and capped his minutes early in the season as a precautionary measure to avoid any issue with the ankle.

Martin originally hurt the ankle last April.

Martin’s absence will be tough for the Knicks, no matter how long it may be. The team has been dealing all season long with injuries, and hey clearly haven’t been able to overcome them, as they are 5-14 on the season, and are in 5th place in the Atlantic Division.
