Wildcats will cope without Damian Martin

10:53 am on 3 April 2013

Both sides are playing day the loss of Damian Martin for the Perth Wildcats in the ANBL basketball grand final series against the New Zealand Breakers.

The Australian guard, who last week was named the ANBL's best defensive player for the third straight year, will miss the series with an achilles injury.

One of Perth's other guards Kevin Lisch admits it's a concern, but they can overcome it.

Brad Robbins, who retired from the Wildcats in December because of chronic injuries, is back training with Perth and could be a suprise inclusion in their squad for Sunday's first match in Auckland.

The Breakers lost 3 of their 4 matches to Perth during the regular season.
