Look at Wade/Maggette ETC sure there are exceptions but I think you have to count on Martin missing at least 10 games a season. Kinda like defensive guys like AK/Wallaca/Gino who always fight and scrap for the ball. You have to count on them missing a few more games than the average player. Anyways Martin was a steal at 30 and tends to be overlooked in many drafts.
I'd say AK and Wallace are more of the ones who get injured more. Ginobili doesn't miss as many games as them .
AK and Gwall are usually up in the air when they are scrapping for the ball thus leading to more awkward falls and injuries. But surgery and age isn't gonna speed Manu's time. It's usually the box score stuffers that get injured.
Some people get to the line often but don't get injuries or it usually minor i.e. Kobe and Iverson (though he just plays it out). Though Kobe has a knack for avoiding big collisions vs. Wade.
