Robinson (coach's decision) was inactive for Thursday's 116-108 loss to the Wizards.
With Julius Randle (illness) cleared to play off the bench Thursday, the Lakers were at full strength for the first time in weeks, which prompted coach Luke Walton to use his two inactive spots on healthy players in Robinson and Metta World Peace. Robinson had been surpassed in the Lakers rotation by the emerging Ivica Zubac and failed to appear in any of the previous three contests, so Walton's decision to hold him out didn't come as much of a surprise. The former lottery pick could have more inactives in store in the games to come if the Lakers are able to stay reasonably healthy in the frontcourt.
Robinson put up four points (2-2 FG), three rebounds and two assists across 10 minutes in a 134-94 loss to the Spurs on Thursday.
Robinson gained some job security earlier this week after the Lakers elected to guarantee his contract for the remainder of the 2016-17 season, but that shouldn't result in him taking on an enhanced role while Julius Randle remains fully healthy. The former lottery pick has participated in each of the Lakers' last 12 games, but has seen no more than 19 minutes in any contest and is averaging 6.5 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game during that span.
Robinson totaled 10 points (5-6 FG), three rebounds and one steal across 18 minutes during a 102-100 loss to Utah on Tuesday.
Robinson scored a season-high 10 points and has been fairly effective over the last four games, behind averages of 7.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. He is seeing more minutes with Larry Nance (knee) sidelined. Robinson likely won't provide much more than average points and rebounds, but his role has increased due to the Lakers' injured frontcourt.
Robinson tallied four points (2-5 FG), six rebounds, three steals, two blocks and one assist across 19 minutes in Monday's 116-92 loss to the Kings.
After largely remaining out of coach Luke Walton's rotation for the first month of the season, Robinson seems to have seized one of the primary backup roles behind starting power forward Julius Randle. Robinson has appeared in each of the past 12 games, but since he's averaging only 3.8 points and 5.0 rebounds per contest during that span, he's still well off the fantasy radar in most formats.
Robinson will come off the bench in Tuesday's game against the Pelicans with Julius Randle (hip) returning to the starting lineup.
While Tuesday was Robinson's first start of the season, he has played double-digit minutes in each of the last three games with Randle being absent. With Randle's return, look for Robinson to be buried in the team's rotation once again.
