Robinson has agreed to a deal with Khimki Moscow of the Euroleague on Tuesday, freelance reporter David Pick reports. The former No. 5 pick out of Kansas in the 2012 NBA Draft seemingly couldn't find any NBA suitors for the upcoming season. He appeared in 48 games with the Lakers last season, posting 5.0 points and 4.6 rebounds across 11.7 minutes per game. Going overseas will likely allow the 26-year-old more playing time, which should help his development should he decide to pursue an NBA career again in the future.
Robinson supplied 12 points (6-9 FG) and three rebounds across 14 minutes in a 119-104 loss to the Timberwolves on Thursday. While Robinson provided the Lakers with an offensive boost off the bench during his time on the court, it wasn't all good for the former lottery pick, as he accrued three fouls and three turnovers along the way. Considering he hadn't played in the previous three games, it's possible Robinson wouldn't have even gotten off the bench Thursday if Ivica Zubac hadn't exited early with a high-ankle sprain. That being said, given the severity of Zubac's injury along with the Lakers' status as a lottery-bound team, it wouldn't be surprising if the team shut down Zubac, which would likely open up consistent run with the second unit for Robinson.
Robinson posted 16 points (7-8 FG, 2-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist over 10 minutes in Tuesday's 133-109 loss to the Clippers. With the Lakers trailing 70-40 at the half, Luke Walton elected to move to the bench in the second half, allowing Robinson to show off a bit in his ten minutes on the court, hitting seven of his eight shots from the floor. Robinson has only played in 40 games this season, and can hardly be considered a viable prospect in any format, but the Lakers need to start exploring what they have on the bench and the journeyman forward has some upside. He currently has little to no fantasy value.
Robinson (illness) will dress for Friday's game against the Celtics, Mark Medina of the Los Angeles Daily News reports. After missing the Lakers' previous game Tuesday against the Hornets with flu-like symptoms, Robinson has practiced the past two days and seems to be fully recovered from the ailment. Though he saw 17 minutes the last time he was active, it's unclear if coach Luke Walton plans to regularly include Robinson in his rotation going forward.
