New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson suffered a broken bone in his right foot on Saturday against the Milwaukee Bucks. The Knicks announced that the injury will be re-evaluated on Sunday.
Robinson, 22, had recently returned to the lineup after being sidelined with a fracture in his right hand. He's emerged as a strong rebounder and rim protector on New York's front line, averaging 8.5 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.5 blocks this season while shooting 65.1% from the field.
His injury is a tough blow to a Knicks team seeking its first playoff berth since 2013 and a young player finding his role on an emerging team. The Knicks entered play on Saturday in fifth place in the Eastern Conference at 23-22.
Will Knicks add another center?
The Knicks reportedly bowed out of the market for Andre Drummond, who became a free agent when the Cleveland Cavaliers bought him out of his contract after Thursday's trade deadline. At the time of Robinson's injury, Drummond remained a free agent, though was reportedly close to reaching a deal with the Los Angeles Lakers.
Demarcus Cousins also remains a free agent after being waived by the Houston Rockets earlier this season.
For the time being, Nerlens Noel will likely return to the starting lineup with Taj Gibson as his backup.
