SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -Leading scorer Kevin Martin missed Sacramento's game against the New Orleans Hornets on Saturday night with an injured right knee.
Martin, who is averaging 23.7 points, hurt himself in the third quarter Friday night against Portland. He did not return to the game and was unavailable against the Hornets.
Forward Ron Artest returned to the lineup for Sacramento after missing three of four games with a sprained right thumb. The Kings are already without starting center Brad Miller, who will miss the remainder of the season with a stress fracture in his left leg and a bone chip in his right elbow.
