Damian Martin Injured, out of qualifying series

" PERTH Wildcats skipper Damian Martin is set to miss Australia's Olympic qualifying series against New Zealand this week after suffering a lower-leg injury.

PerthNow understands Martin, 30, is battling a calf or achilles issue sustained after arriving in Melbourne on Monday.

It is unclear how Martin, who was present at Boomers training on Tuesday morning, suffered the injury."

re: Damian Martin Injured, out of qualifying series

I agree with Train, he works so hard and even though he doesn't have the offensive skills of some players he works his but off with both offence and defence. Even though I hate the wildcats I really love Damo and I'm really saddened to hear the news.
Hope its nothing back, and get better soon Damo

Unlucky for Damo.
Will he be replaced or will they go with 11.

He is paid like many other pretty damn well to work hard.... so not sure why all the accoldaes about that. He has no jump shot, none nada squat. Still a shame his hustle will be missed on the defensive end greatly. Absolutely excells at the gritty stuff.

Particularly disappointing because even though it would be tough for him to crack into a full-strength Boomers squad he would've added defensive value in this series, given Webster is the Tall Blacks' main offensive threat.

So no one who gets paid to do something should ever get accolades for it, even if they excel at something?

You can't put a dollar value on Damo's character and work ethic.
Stoked that he is ok and still able to play

Matt already told us we don't need to go to a self promoting website to read what Roy Ward has already tweeted. That's not journalism.

It's the same troll again and again. I no longer pay it any attention. Once it has ruffled some feathers it usually scurries back under the bridge and eats beans straight from the can.

Love you GWB. Roy Ward tweeted it and PNR has coincidentally now has an article on it. That's not journalism where I come from. Go figure. No one pays attention to you either despite having a fictitious name that is as good as mine.

Hahaha someone is claiming that GWB and Isaac are the same person? That certainly makes the spat the two of them had last week all the more interesting. Well played Isaac!

Damian Martin replaced in the team by Cam Gliddon.
Good move. Cam should have been there in the first place IMO.

Can't find any confirmation Gliddon has replaced Martin? Nothing on BA's website or in their twitter feed.

Martin didn't train today - would have thought if he was going to play Saturday he would have need to train today.

Boti has actually confirmed that Gliddon is in for Martin; the imitation actually had a moment of clairvoyance

It is also concerning that Bogut continues to be rested. If it is just a sore back, you would think he would play through it? With the game on in two days, you would think he will start to train soon?

re: Damian Martin Injured, out of qualifying series

Well thats a relief. Injury isn't good for any player, but I think we have lucked ourselves into an upgraded team.

Patty Mills over Dante Exum without question, and I think Gliddon (I can see the snickering before I even finish the sentence) offers more offensively than Martin, while Martins skills are pretty comparable to Gibson - who is already on the team.

With Patty training well, he looks a good chance to start. I expect Gliddon will be 11th man - just before the useless Jawai. It doesn't hurt to have another guy who can shoot the three on the bench.

Feeling for Martin, though. He never has luck with the Boomers.
