Mitchell Robinson will undergo surgery on his fractured right hand, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. The Knicks’ big is expected to miss four to six weeks of action due to the surgery.
Robinson suffered a fracture of the fourth metacarpal on the hand on Friday night vs. Washington. The promising center has played in 27 games for the Knicks so far this season recording a career-high in minutes per game(28.8).
Robinson is considered a great shot blocker despite number dropping this season since Tom Thibodeau has increased his minutes.
He grabs a career-high 8.4 rebounds shooting a career-worst 66-percent from the field. He’s putting up 8.4 points per contest.
Nerlens Noel is expected to return to the starting lineup, while Obi Toppin could see his minutes going up in the center position.
