2023 Fantasy Outlook
Martin played just seven games during the 2022-23 season as a result of a mysterious knee injury. The Hornets lived up to their reputation of being arguably the worst team in the league when it comes to injury reporting. Despite no word on the exact injury or the timetable for his return, Martin was consistently listed as questionable or doubtful, despite barely touching the floor. Assuming he is fully healthy, Martin could play a meaningful role for the Hornets, at least putting him on the standard league radar. With that said, he does not have a particularly fantasy-friendly game, limiting his overall upside. Managers would likely be better off targeting anyone with upside, at least until Martin's role becomes apparent. Read Past Outlooks

Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Cody Lee Martin was born in 1995 in Mocksville, North Carolina to Jenny Bennett. He has a twin brother, Caleb, who was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Hornets in July 2019. The two attended hometown Davie County High School for three years, with Cody averaging 15.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, and 3.4 assists as a junior. For their senior season, they transferred to the famed Oak Hill Academy in Virginia on a team that compiled a 41-4 record. Martin's favorite player and sports hero is LeBron James. You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram (@cody_martin15). Of the Martin twins who played together at NC State and Nevada, Cody was the better all-around player, while Caleb was a better scorer. As a freshman at NC State, Martin started three games and appeared in 16 others. He had a bigger role as a sophomore, playing in 33 games and starting 16. He averaged 6.0 points, 4.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists. Martin sat out the 2015-16 season after transferring to Nevada. With the Wolf Pack, he started all but two games and became an impact player. As a junior, the 6-foot-7 wing provided 14.0 points, 6.3 rebounds and 4.7 assists per contest. He added 1.7 steals and 1.5 blocks and was named the Mountain West's Defensive Player of the Year. The Wolf Pack advanced to the Sweet 16. In a huge comeback win, Martin produced 25 points, seven assists and six rebounds in the Round of 32. Although he thought about entering the 2018 NBA Draft, Martin returned to Reno for his senior season. Martin contributed 12.1 points, 4.9 assists, and 4.5 rebounds during that campaign. He opened the season with three straight double-digit assist games. The Wolf Pack were beaten in the first round by Florida of the 2019 NCAA Tournament. Martin had 23 points, five rebounds and three steals in the loss.

Hands out 10 assists in win
GCharlotte Hornets
February 26, 2024
Martin recorded 11 points (4-8 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, 10 assists, one block and two steals in 31 minutes during Sunday's 93-80 win over Portland.
ANALYSIS
Martin has been doing an excellent job since being promoted to a starting role in late January, but this was one of his best performances of the season by a sizable margin. Aside from the fact the 10 assists were a season-high mark for him, it was also his first double-double since the 2020-21 campaign. Martin should remain in a starting role when the Hornets take on the Bucks on Tuesday.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
On track, still not 100 percent
GCharlotte Hornets
April 11, 2023
Martin said during his exit interview Monday that he's feeling better and doesn't anticipate needing any more surgical procedures, but he's not 100 percent yet and doesn't have a specific return timetable this summer, Roderick Boone of The Charlotte Observer reports.
ANALYSIS
Martin played in just seven games during the 2022-23 campaign and has had multiple surgeries on his left knee, including an arthroscopic procedure Nov. 11, but it appears he's in the final stages of his rehab and should be full go by next season. The versatile forward signed a four-year, $31.36 million deal in July last year, so the Hornets would love to get him back healthy and finally receive some ROI on one of their bigger contracts.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2022
2021
2019
Martin saw increased opportunity in his third season with Charlotte, logging career-high totals in games (71) and minutes per contest (26.3). Unsurprisingly, the uptick in playing time resulted in career-best statistical marks across the board, as he finished with averages of 7.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 0.9 three-pointers and 1.2 steals per game. Promisingly, Martin exhibited better shooting last season, making 48.2 percent of his field-goal tries, 38.4 percent of his three-point attempts and 70.1 percent of his shots from the charity stripe. The overall improvement was enough for the Hornets to re-sign the wingman to a four-year, $32 million contract, so he should continue to see a decent amount of minutes as the organization seeks to get the most out of its spending. Martin is slated to be a backup again next season, though he may see his role take on extra importance in the potential scenario that restricted free agent Miles Bridges -- who was charged with three felony counts of domestic violence in the offseason -- isn't part of the team. Martin doesn't have a particularly fantasy-friendly game, but he could have some value in deeper leagues for his ability to collect steals and knock down the occasional three.
After a decent rookie season in Charlotte, Martin took a step back in Year 2. The Nevada product averaged 4.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 16.3 minutes which were all down from the previous year's totals. Martin's decrease in play could very well be attributed to the additions of both LaMelo Ball and Gordon Hayward. The 25-year-old also dealt with the injury bug throughout the season, only playing in 52 games, including missing the last nine games of the season due to an ankle injury. This year, it is hard to imagine Martin becoming a true fantasy option due to the Hornets' depth. While the team lost Devonte' Graham in free agency, they added James Bouknight and Kelly Oubre to their roster. Due to Martin's unimpressive play and his spot in the rotation, the 6-foot-5 guard is not someone to target in fantasy leagues.
The 36th overall pick in the 2019 Draft, Martin is on the Hornets after four years of collegiate action, plus a year of sitting out due to a transfer. An older rookie, Martin will be turning 24 in late September after spending the past two seasons at Nevada. In 2018 and 2019, he was selected to the Mountain West All-Conference Second Team (Media) and All-Defensive Team (Coaches). As a senior, he averaged 12.1 points on 8.8 shots, 4.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.4 steals in 34.4 minutes. Martin appeared in five summer league tilts with Charlotte, averaging 8.6 points on 6.0 shots, 3.6 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.4 steals in 23.1 minutes. While Martin will have competition for minutes, the Hornets are in one of the deepest rebuilds in recent memory, so it's possible he'll get plenty of chances to make mistakes.
