Hejduk should also return after he had a torso injury Wednesday.
Martinez has been skating but has not taken contact yet.
Coach Darryl Sutter earlier this week reunited the Brown-Kopitar-Williams line for the first time since last season. Brown responded with a goal Wednesday against the Calgary Flames to end a seven-game goal-less spell.
Sutter also promoted Lewis to the second line recently as Lewis has a goal and two assists in his past two games.
DiPietro, who was placed on waivers Friday, has eight years remaining on his contract at $4.5 million per season. Injuries and ineffective play have stalled the career of the No. 1 pick in the 2000 NHL Draft.
Including three games this season, DiPietro has only appeared in 50 for the Islanders since the start of the 2008-09 campaign. He has wins in 14 of those appearances.
To replace DiPietro on the roster, the Islanders recalled Kevin Poulin from Bridgeport. Poulin, a fifth-round pick in the 2008 NHL Draft, has appeared in a total of 16 games for the Islanders in the previous two seasons.
Green participated in warm-ups for the second straight contest, but is not in the lineup for the Capitals against the New Jersey Devils on Saturday afternoon at Verizon Center. Green has two goals and seven points in 14 games for the Capitals this season.
He played in a total of 81 games in the previous two seasons because of a myriad of injuries.
OTTAWA – Here are the projected lineups for the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Ottawa Senators at Scotiabank Place on Saturday night. The Senators held their practice at their home arena, while the Maple Leafs elected to skate at Carleton University.

Coach Paul MacLean confirmed Michalek (knee) skated Saturday morning, but does not expect him to be available against Montreal on Monday. There was no update on Craig Anderson, who remains day-to-day with a right ankle sprain.
Hartnell has missed the past 16 games since breaking the first metatarsal in his left foot Jan. 22 against the New Jersey Devils. He had surgery to repair the injury Jan. 25, and at that time was expected to miss 4-6 weeks; Saturday's game marks four weeks and one day.
"Obviously, Hartsy is a big part of it," Flyers coach Peter Laviolette said. "We haven't had a practice with him yet. It'll be good to get him back on the ice in a game and get him moving forward. It's been a long time without him. Certainly, I think we can benefit from having him in the lineup. He brings a lot to the table."
