Nate Robinson is out for the remainder of the season after having ACL surgery, the Nuggets announced Friday.

“It's always tough to see one of your players go down with an injury,” general manager Tim Connelly said. “Nate is known for his heart and determination, so I have no doubt he will work hard to get back on the court as soon as possible. He has the full support of our team and organization.”

Robinson injured the knee Jan. 29 against the Bobcats.

The team is currently 22-22 and battling to stay in playoff position, and Robinson has been a siginificant sparkplug off their bench.

Robinson, signed by Denver as a free agent on July 26, 2013, averaged 10.4 points and 2.5 assists in 44 games with the Nuggets this season.
