Glenn Robinson will come off the bench Tuesday against the Clippers, Nate Taylor of the Indianapolis Star reports.
The Indiana Pacers confirmed after their morning shootaround that George Hill, who served in a reserve role Saturday against the Kings following a three-game absence due to the birth of his son, will take back his usual spot as the starting point guard, leaving no room for Robinson on the top unit. Robinson had only played 10 minutes while starting in place of Hill on Saturday, so the move back to the bench likely won't result in a dramatic change in the second-year swingman's playing time situation.
Glenn Robinson scored 10 points (3-4 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT) to go with two assists, one rebound, and one steal in 18 minutes during the Indiana Pacers ' 97-94 win against the Suns on Tuesday.
Robinson earned the start with George Hill out yet again for personal reasons. Robinson is averaging five points, 1.6 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and 0.4 blocks in 16 minutes per appearance over the last five match-ups, but figures to lose at least one-third of his minutes once Hill is ready to re-join the Pacers for good. On the year, Robinson is averaging 11 minutes per game through 27 appearances.
Glenn Robinson will start at shooting guard for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Candace Buckner of Indy Star Sports reports.
With George Hill still not with the team because of personal reasons, Monta Ellis will slide over to point guard, while Robinson will draw the start at shooting guard for a second consecutive game. In Sunday's start versus the Nuggets, Robinson logged 17 minutes, so look for a similar usage Tuesday.
Glenn Robinson will start at shooting guard Sunday against the Nuggets, Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star reports.
Robinson has seen at least 11 minutes in each of his last seven games, although his promotion comes as a result of both George Hill (personal) and Rodney Stuckey (foot) sitting out while Monte Ellis plays point guard.
Glenn Robinson was recalled from the D-League's Fort Wayne Mad Ants on Monday, NBA.com reports.
As expected, Robinson's stint in the D-League was short lived, as he played just one game with Fort Wayne. Robinson will typically find himself outside of coach Frank Vogel's rotation now that he's back with the Indiana Pacers .
