K-Mart's Blue Light is Out

Sleepin on your rhymes till I start to snore...

The collective exhale you heard from downtown yesterday came from the Pepsi Center, as the Nuggets got word that Kenyon Martin's knee wouldn't require season-ending surgery. On the flip side, the power forward will be shut down indefinitely. All we know is that he will return "sometime this season." Ah, thanks for the specifics.

Depending on how you look at this, it is the classic good news/bad news scenario. K-Mart will most likely be back in time for the playoffs, where the defense and intimidation factor is ratcheted up a notch and that's his MO. But will the knee be at 100%, at any level he was earlier this year or in last year's playoffs? Remember, K-Mart effectively got all up in Dirk's ass in last year's second round. (Maybe this knee injury thing was caused by our buddy Mark Cuban. Did Mark sneak into Kenyon's house and force him to be his DWTS partner? That's a huge step down from Julianne Hough.)

Plus there's this little playoff race thing. Those same Mavericks are getting all mavericky to the tune of 12 straight wins and a game lead on the Nuggets for the #2 seed. Your home town squad is facing two long road trips this March. Those pesky Jazz are still in the rearview mirror. And Kenyon always has the best Wii games to bring on the road too.

The Nuggets will have to mix and match to even come close to the production Kenyon was giving them. Johan Petro was effective versus an inept Blazers team on Sunday night; Malik Allen looks like the dude who switches out the rugs in the office, but can give you 4-6 minutes a night; and Joey Graham brought some energy earlier in the year. But even taped together with scotch tape, toothpicks, and rubber bands, the trio is still short of what K-Mart brings.

(Dont fear though, the Nuggs are talking to Brian Cook, Mark Blount, and Jake Voshkuhl. I'm not even going to make some lame joke about those three because, well, they're Brian Cook, Mark Blount, and Jake Voshkuhl.)

Karl did a good job mixing and maxing the replacements on Sunday. Did he leave AD a sticky note on how to do it on Weds?
