Damian Martin back in the lineup!

From the Wildcats:

Damian Martin ready to return
Perth Wildcats captain Damian Martin has been cleared to make a shock return from injury tomorrow night.

Martin had his jaw broken in the Perth Wildcats clash with the Townsville Crocodiles on 4 November.

Medical staff initially estimated that the 31-year-old would spend between six weeks and three months recovering on the sideline.

However, with surgery and recovery going better than expected, he will play tomorrow night at Perth Arena against the NZ Breakers.

The five-time NBL Best Defensive Player has had two plates surgical inserted, and a temporary wire across his teeth. He will be wearing a lower mouthguard for additional protection in the game.

"I'm excited to get out there and play alongside these great guys after having to train on the spare court," said Martin.

“Between getting a new mouthguard, training with them today for the first time since breaking the jaw, and getting the news I can play - it’s been a great Thursday.

“I met with the surgeon today and he was happy with how I’ve recovered, how the gums are healing, the strength of the wiring on my teeth, and he was very satisfied the titanium plates plus the mouthguard will contribute to having a reasonably strong jaw.”

The Perth Wildcats take on the NZ Breakers in a rivalry blockbuster tomorrow night at Perth Arena. with tip-off at 6.30pm.

Shock return is right.
I'm no doctor, but that doesn't sound wise to me.

Unlike a soft tissue injury, it's either healed or its not, right?

Damo is one of the very few who could pull this off.

What does that even mean, its a broken jaw, he like anyone is either healed or isnt. Not like if he rebroke it unlike a normal human he would soldier on....

Incredible recovery. Great to hear

Between Prather, Jawai and Martin it seems like they've always had 1-2 key guys out. This is probably only the second or third game where they have everyone available?

He's only playing very limited minutes so don't get too excited about having a full squad just yet.

Matty Knight must surely be next in line? He is well overdue for an injury.
