Robinson recorded nine points (3-5 FG, 2-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 22 minutes during Thursday's 128-118 loss to the Bucks.
Robinson finished with a career high scoring total while contributing in every statistical category. The absences of Lou Williams (rest) and Patrick Beverley (hip) cleared the way for Robinson to earn ample minutes, but the rookie isn't normally part of the rotation. With the Clippers already locking up a spot in the playoffs, it shouldn't be that surprising if Robinson receives decent playing time in some of the last six regular season games. Nevertheless, those considering him in daily leagues in advance of Saturday's matchup with the lowly Cavaliers will likely want to check the injury report before committing.
Robinson has been a limited member of the team's rotation over the last month or so, but after not seeing the floor in two of the Clippers' last three games, he'll be sent to Ontario to play with the team's G League affiliate. Ontario hosts the Austin Spurs on Tuesday afternoon.
Robinson's huge steal production was essentially offset by the terrible night from the field, making it an underwhelming showing for the rookie. His minutes were boosted by virtue of the Clippers having just 10 players available in the aftermath of Thursday's trade deadline. With many of the team's new imports expected back for Saturday's game in Boston, Robinson should stick in the rotation but will almost certainly notice a steep reduction in playing time.
After appearing in just seven of the Clippers' first 44 games of his rookie campaign, Robinson has now cracked coach Doc Rivers' rotation in 11 straight contests. The Clippers' decision to trade star forward Tobias Harris shortly after Tuesday's contest signals the team may turn more focus on developing younger players like Robinson. That being said, Robinson hasn't exceeded 17 minutes since joining the rotation and continues to be affected by the crowding in the team's backcourt. Those problems only got bigger after the Harris trade, as the Clippers took back another guard in Landry Shamet, another 2018 first-round pick who already looks more NBA-ready than Robinson.
Robinson has been assigned to the G League.
Robinson hasn't appeared in an NBA game since mid-November, so this move doesn't affect LA's rotation. In the G League, he's averaging 20.1 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.6 assists in 31.0 minutes. He's also shooting 50.0 percent from deep on 6.3 attempts per tilt.
