The Thunder will be down a rotation big man tonight against Golden State as Nick Collison will rest a sprained left ankle versus the Warriors. From here on out, he'll just be day-to-day. Collison suffered it in the first half against Portland but stayed in the game.
But good news! Nate Robinson is back.
Robinson will be activated tonight for the first time since having arthroscopic surgery March 4 on his right knee. It's unknown if he'll play. He's not a likely rotation player for the Thunder, but Scott Brooks sees the potential to use him in spots.
"We have a nice flow to our rotation," Scott Brooks told the Oklahoman. "There are times he will be used, but I don't know when."
Since being traded from Boston to OKC, Robinson had only appeared once scoring six points in eight minutes. He's behind Russell Westbrook and Eric Maynor in the point guard rotation and behind Thabo Sefolosha, James Harden and Daequan Cook at shooting guard. He's more seen as an instant offense type of option to inject some life and energy to the team when needed.
