A rough season just got rougher for the Minnesota Timberwolves. The team announced Saturday that guard Kevin Martin will be out indefinitely with a fractured left thumb. The injury was confirmed following an X-ray taken Saturday morning.

Officially called a non-displaced fracture of the distal phalanx, the injury occurred in the final minutes of Friday night’s 98-91 loss to the New Orleans Pelicans.

The 6-7 Martin was second on the team in scoring, averaging 19.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 32.3 minutes per game.
