Sacramento Kings leading scorer Kevin Martin underwent surgery on his injured left wrist.

The NBA team said Martin had the procedure to repair a hairline fracture in the shooting guard's left wrist on Monday at the UC Davis Medical Center.

Martin will be released from the hospital later in the day.

The 26-year-oldĀ is expected to miss at least eight weeks with the injury. He is averaging 30.6 points a game for the Kings.

Sacramento has won both games since Martin was sidelined. Rookie Tyreke Evans is averaging 27.5 points per game in those contests.

Eighth in the Western Conference, the 3-4 Kings host the No. 7 Oklahoma City Thunder (3-3) on Tuesday night.
