Robinson will come off the bench for Wednesday's preseason opener against the Thunder, Keith Langlois of Pistons.com reports.
Signed to a two-year contract this offseason, Robinson entered camp in a battle with Stanley Johnson for the top spot at small forward. It appears Johnson is set to get the first crack at the top job in Wednesday's exhibition, though there's certainly a chance Robinson gets a shot later in the preseason. Still, it seems to suggest that Johnson may be the slight favorite, so it'll be a competition to monitor up until the opener. Whether starting or not, Robinson should have the opportunity to up his playing time from the 14.7 minutes he averaged across 23 games last year with Indiana.
Robinson will sign a two-year contract with the Detroit Pistons, Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports reports.
After spending the last three seasons with Indiana, the former Michigan Wolverine will return to the glove state to join the Pistons. Detroit will be getting what could become a coveted three-and-D wing in today's NBA who is coming off a season where he shot a career-best 41.2 percent from range and can use his frame at 6'7" to guard multiple positions. Overall, in 14.7 minutes of action last year, Robinson averaged 4.1 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.7 assists and should expect to see his usage expand slightly with Detroit.
Robinson registered 13 points (5-11 FG, 3-4 3Pt), eight rebounds and one assist across 40 minutes during a 119-93 loss to the Hornets on Tuesday.
Robinson played a season-high 40 minutes Tuesday during the team's regular season finale. He received the heavy workload as the team held out several wing players. As a result, he fell just two rebounds shy of his first double-double of the season.
Robinson will enter the starting five for Tuesday's matchup with the Hornets, freelance journalist Mark Montieth reports.
With the Pacers locked into their spot in the playoffs, they'll rest a few usual starters in the regular-season finale, including Thad Young, Bojan Bogdanovic and Victor Oladipo (foot). As a result, the Pacers are calling on Robinson to slot in as a replacement on the wing, which could mean a slight uptick in his usage. Robinson played a season-high 24 minutes during Sunday's game, posting 13 points, two rebounds, one assist and one steal. A similar workload can likely be expected for Robinson on Tuesday despite getting the promotion to the top unit.
Robinson produced 13 points (4-6 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), two rebounds, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes during Sunday's 123-117 victory over Charlotte.
Robinson saw a bump in playing time as the Pacers limited the starters. He has shown the ability to score the basketball when afforded the opportunity, but this is merely a mirage brought on by resting players. Feel free to stream him for the final game of the regular season but assume nothing and set your expectations low.
