"That is what I am working out for," said Martin. "That is why I am up here spending all of these hours rehabbing. That is why I am doing it. For me, it is about doing as much as I can to put myself in the best possible position to be at my best."
What about the rumors that his right knee is bone-on-bone?
"First of all, we are clearing up what some one made up or heard," said Martin. "I don't feel an obligation to clear that up. To the fans, I would like to say that I am trying to do my best to be as good as I can possibly be, and I am doing my best to be back as soon as I can possibly by back. I just don't know everything. That's it. I do not want to spend time clearing up rumors that did not come out of my mouth or that came from some one else's. I don't know how long it will take me. All I can do is keep working."
