Portland Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson had surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb, the team announced on Tuesday. He suffered the injury in the third game of summer league, and had to miss the rest of Portland's games in Vegas.
Robinson averaged 13.7 points, 8.7 rebounds and shot 50 percent from the field in his brief stint at summer league. He's expected to be fine by the start of training camp.
He does not appear to be concerned:

Kyrie Irving went nuts in Game 4 and capped it off with a nasty highlight
Boston is better on defense without Thomas, but it obviously missed him in the second half...
The Cavs are up 3-1, in part thanks to Irving's astonishing performance.
Maybe the best player of all-time has his best season, and he's not even in the discussion...
Cleveland took a 3-1 lead on Boston and will look to close it out Thursday
Boston had a 16-point lead at one point
