The Knicks' big man will be available every game instead of rotating games with Amar'e Stoudemire.

New York Knicks center Kenyon Martin has been cleared to play every game "unless his ankles are hurting," according to Marc Berman of the New York Post. The Knicks had previously arranged a rotation that allowed them to alternate between Amar'e Stoudemire and Martin playing on a game-by-game basis.

Martin has dealt with ankle injuries throughout his career, but the Knicks' frontcourt depth is thin without Tyson Chandler, so having a consistent rotation could ease the defensive responsibilities on Andrea Bargnani. Martin has missed only one game so far this season.
