Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Without firm timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (foot) is without a clear timetable as he recovers from surgery on his right foot, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

When asked about the big man's progress Tuesday, coach Tom Thibodeau didn't have much to say, stating only that the team is "taking it slow" and Robinson is still not cleared for any contact. At this rate, it's highly unlikely that Robinson returns to action at any point during Round 1, but if the Knicks are able to advance past Atlanta, there's an outside chance he could play later in the playoffs.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Ruled out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (foot) is listed as out for Sunday's game against Atlanta.

Robinson hasn't been ruled out for the entirety of the playoffs, but he won't be available for Game 1 against the Hawks. Robinson's next chance to play in Game 2 will come Wednesday.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Resumes on-court work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (foot) has progressed to on-court work and has not been ruled out for the playoffs, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

The playoffs begin next weekend, but Robinson will still have to clear more hurdles before seeing the court. He'll need to take contact and do 5-on-5 scrimmaging before the medical staff will feel comfortable allowing him to play.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Undergoes foot surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (foot) underwent surgery Monday to repair a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports.

It was an incredibly unfortunate break for Robinson, who was playing in just his fourth game after missing an extended stretch due to a fractured bone in his hand. The Knicks have not handed down a timetable, but Robinson will likely miss upward of a month, which essentially rules him out for the remainder of the fantasy basketball season. However, there's hope that the big man could return around the end of the regular season and be available for the postseason, should the Knicks qualify.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Breaks foot Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson suffered a broken right foot during Saturday's game against the Bucks, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Robinson was in just his fourth game back from a broken hand when he suffered the broken foot. With the NBA playoffs starting May 22, it might be tough for Robinson to make his return before the end of the season. We'll learn more about a timetable in the coming days. For the duration of his absence, Nerlens Noel will likely move into the starting five, while Taj Gibson should slide in as the backup center.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson will start Thursday's game against the Wizards.

With Nerlens Noel (shoulder) sidelined unexpectedly, Mitchell will jump back into the starting five for the first time since Feb. 12. Even when Noel returns, it's possible Mitchell will remain a starter, as that was the role he occupied before missing 15 games due to a broken right hand.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Pops off in blowout win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson recorded 16 points (7-9 FG, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, three blocks and two assists in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 131-113 win over the Wizards.

In his second game back from breaking his hand, Robinson got back on track, making easy work of the Wizards' weak center rotation. The performance marked the third of Robinson's career with at least 16 points, 12 boards and three swats; the other two occurred in February and March of 2019. When Robinson has seen 30-plus minutes this season, he's averaged 9.2 points, 9.3 rebounds and 1.8 blocks. He'll likely rejoin the starting five sooner than later.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Says he'll play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) said he will play Tuesday against the Wizards, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Robinson picked up a left ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to Philadelphia after he was making his return from a 15-game absence. But the sprain was apparently minor, as Robinson indicated he would be good to go for his second game in a row. Robinson played 17 minutes off the bench Sunday, so a similar workload for Tuesday's game is likely.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Questionable with ankle sprain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (ankle) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Wizards.

Robinson made his long-awaited return to action in Sunday's one-point loss to the Sixers, but he managed to pick up a sprained left ankle in his 17 minutes of action off the bench. The hope is that he'll play through the issue Tuesday, but the Knicks will wait to see how the ankle responds before updating his status.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Limited action in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (hand) recorded four points (2-5 FG, 0-2 FT), six rebounds and one assist in 17 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 101-100 overtime loss to the 76ers.

Making his return from a hand injury that cost him 15 games, Robinson saw fairly limited action in a second-unit role, as head coach Tom Thibodeau rolled with starter Nerlens Noel (36 minutes) for most of the second half and overtime. Thibodeau indicated that Robinson will likely play off the bench for a few more games before "eventually" returning to the starting five, so he may struggle to reach the 28.8 minutes per game he had averaged prior to the injury.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Officially good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (hand) has been cleared to play in Sunday's game against the 76ers, Ian Begley of SNY reports.

As expected, Robinson will return to game action for the first time since Feb. 12. Coach Tom Thibodeau said earlier Sunday that Robinson would come off the bench for the time being, but he'll eventually reclaim the starting center spot from Nerlens Noel.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Officially available Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (hand) is available for Sunday's game against Philadelphia.

Robinson was trending toward a return ahead of Sunday's matchup, and he'll officially be available off the bench for the Knicks. He could face a minutes restriction since he'll be making his first appearance since Feb. 12, but coach Tom Thibodeau said that Robinson will "eventually" replace Nerlens Noel in the starting lineup.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Expected to play off bench Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (hand) is expected to play in Sunday's game against the 76ers, Tim Bontemps of ESPN reports.

Robinson is officially listed as questionable, but coach Tom Thibodeau implied pregame that the big man will be available for the first time since breaking a bone in his hand back on Feb. 12. Thibodeau said Robinson is "pretty much a go" for Sunday's contest, but he'll come off the bench for the time being, with the expectation that he'll "eventually" replace Nerlens Noel in the starting five.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Game-time decision Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (hand) is a game-time decision for Sunday's contest against the 76ers, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

Robinson said that he hopes to play Sunday, but a final word on his status may not come until warmups are completed. He hasn't seen any action since Feb. 12 due to a broken hand, and if he does play Sunday, it's unclear if he'll immediately return to the starting five or work back up to speed off the bench.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Cleared to play, practice looming
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (hand) has been cleared to play but the Knicks are waiting to see how he responds in practice before making a decision on his status for Sunday versus the 76ers, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

The newest update on Robinson provides an even more positive slant to his playing prospects for Sunday than his questionable tag on the official injury report. If he makes it through practice Saturday unscathed, Robinson could have a good shot to see the floor against the 76ers in his first action since Feb. 12. He's still officially listed as questionable and should have his status updated prior to the contest.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Listed questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (hand) is considered a question mark for Sunday's game versus the 76ers, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Robinson was cleared to practice for the first time earlier this week, so his questionable listing is certainly another sign he's nearing his first action in over a month. Given that he's been sidelined by a hand issue, conditioning may not be a huge concern for the big man, whose status should be clarified ahead of Sunday's opening tip.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Cleared for contact practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau said after Tuesday's 99-96 loss to the 76ers that Robinson (hand) has been cleared to take contact in practice, Ian Begley of SportsNet New York reports.

Though Thibodeau suggested last week that Robinson wasn't especially close to returning from the surgically repaired right hand that has sidelined him since Feb. 12, the coach's latest update about the center strikes a more optimistic tone. Robinson has shed the cast on his right hand, so at this stage, he may just need to regain conditioning in practice after having missed the Knicks' last 14 games. A return for Thursday's game against the Magic may be a stretch, but if Robinson checks out fine during full practices Friday and Saturday, he could be ready to go for Sunday's rematch with Philadelphia. Nerlens Noel has seen his production wane of late and has been held under 30 minutes in each of the Knicks' last four games, so Robinson should be in good position to recapture his starting role once he's cleared to play.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Return not imminent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Knicks head coach Tom Thibodeau said Thursday that Robinson (hand) was recently re-evaluated, but the center remains without a clear timeline for a return, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports. "There's still no set timetable," Thibodeau said of Robinson. "He's starting to do more. We're probably a little ways away. But the conditioning, he's been very diligent in putting extra work in. The basketball part, he hasn't been able to scrimmage or anything like that. But he's handling the ball with his left hand and doing a lot of running."

Robinson doesn't appear to have experienced any setbacks in his recovery from the Feb. 16 surgery he required to address his fractured right hand, but the fact that he's unable to use the hand in question for basketball activities suggests his return isn't particularly close. Fantasy managers who have been patiently holding Robinson for the past month should expect him to miss at least another week of action, giving Nerlens Noel a longer runway as the Knicks' starting center.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Undergoes surgery Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson (hand) underwent successful surgery Tuesday to repair the fracture in his right hand.

Robinson will be evaluated after the All-Star break, and a return could come soon after that based on the initial timetable of 4-to-6 weeks. While Robinson remains sidelined, Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson should continue seeing extra minutes.

Knicks' Mitchell Robinson: Slated to undergo surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Robinson will undergo surgery next week to repair the fractured right hand he sustained in Friday's win over the Wizards, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. He's expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks.

Robinson was on his way to a huge night Friday (10 points, 14 rebounds, two steals and one assist in 20 minutes) before suffering the injury just before halftime when his hand collided with the elbow of teammate Julius Randle. After Robinson was sent in for further examination Saturday, doctors determined that surgery would be necessary to address the the injury. The timeline officially rules Robinson out through the All-Star break, and his absence could extend into early April. In the meantime, Nerlens Noel becomes the top candidate to start at center in Robinson's stead, while Taj Gibson should become a regular in the rotation. Randle may also slide over from power forward more frequently to fill minutes at center.
