Tigers reigning Brownlow Medallist Dustin Martin will not make the trip to Adelaide to take on the Power on Friday night due to a calf complaint.

The star midfielder was seen at the airport on Thursday in the international section, travelling to New Zealand to visit his father.

Martin is expected to return to Australia sometime next week and is likely to lineup for their Round 13 clash with Geelong.
