He has been suspended indefinitely for what was termed as "conduct detrimental to the team" after being relegated to Denver's bench for much of the second half of Monday's 98-87 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers in Game Two of their Western Conference quarterfinal series.
"I take the responsibility of representing the Denver Nuggets very seriously and I truly hope that Nuggets fans understand that," Martin added. "I support the team fully and can't wait to rejoin them on the court as soon as possible. I want to apologize to my teammates and coaching staff for my actions on Monday night. There is nothing more important to me than being a good teammate and giving 110 percent effort each and every day."
The team action came after he sat with a towel over his head after returning late to the Nuggets' bench several minutes into the third quarter of the Clippers game.
