Robinson, 23, was hit in the nose by an elbow from Jae’Sean Tate in the third quarter of the contest and did not return to the game, Berman relays.
Robinson has still been dealing with lingering effects from the foot surgery this season, as he’s struggled with conditioning and multiple ankle sprains, Berman says. The big man also had a hip flexor injury less than two weeks ago.
Robinson will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. It’s tricky to gauge his market value due to his injury history and offensive limitations. Through 15 games, he’s averaging 7.1 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks in 25.7 minutes per contest.
According to Berman, backup center Taj Gibson is also sidelined with a strained groin, while Nerlens Noel, who’s been dealing with knee issues, still isn’t 100%. Rookie Jericho Sims figures to see some playing time with the frontcourt so undermanned, while second-year forward Obi Toppin could see an increase in minutes.
