According to the team, Martinez suffered a tear during a recent summer workout. Recovery time is expected to be between 2-3 months.

A four-star recruit coming out of high school, his lone college season with the Utes showed some promise. Martinez appeared in 25 games and almost averaged 10 points in the final six games of the regular season.
