Knicks' K-Mart To Have Surgery

New Yorks Knicks' forward Kenyon Martin says that he plans to have surgery on a recurring ankle injury in the next couple of weeks. 
Martin's ankle has sidelined him for the last 35 games this season. 
The timing on this injury and surgery could have come at a better time for Martin, who will become a free agent this summer. Martin, a former No. 1 overall pick, has played in the NBA for 13 years and hopes to continue to play next season. He would like to continue his career with the New York Knicks. 
Martin gave a big lift off the bench during the second half of the 2012-13 season and talked Wednesday about his disappointment over missing the playoff this season.
"We didn't get off to the start we hoped and then injuries played a part, guys in and out of the lineup all year. That's part of it. But us not playing well as a team, that's what it boils down to. We just didn't get it done," Martin said. 

Martin feels it unfair that coach Mike Woodson was left with the blame for the problems the team had this season.
"Woody, he had us prepared every game. It was just we didn't go out and get it done," Martin said. "It wasn't one day we didn't have the shootaround, didn't watch film, or game plan. All that went on still. It's still the same game plan, same scheme, same everything we had last year. We just didn't get it done. Us, with the expectations we had, of course we feel like we underachieved as a bunch."
Martin averaged just 4.3 points and 4.2 rebounds in 19.8 minutes per game in 32 games this season.
