Martin landed awkwardly after a dunk attempt against the Minutemen and immediately came out of the game, limping. The 6-10, 240-pound McDonald's All-American did not return after trainers re-wrapped the ankle. It was reported Martin sprained the ankle.
According to multiple sources very close to the situation, the injury is not serious or long-term. Said one source: "He'll be all right. He'll be back real soon."
The Tigers play next at home Saturday night against in-state foe Northwestern State.
In Martin's place Tuesday morning, LSU turned to sophomore Shane Hammink at small forward along with senior Shavon Coleman.
