Marc Berman freaks us all out:
According to a Team USA source, Robinson suffered a knee injury and missed the first two days of practice, beginning with an informal workout Sunday. He returned for two days, but re-injured the knee Wednesday.
Robinson was expected to miss Thursday’s set of scrimmages and practice. A member of the Knicks training staff is in Vegas with Robinson. According to a source close to Robinson, he’s been experiencing “just soreness,” and the team and his camp are being extra cautious after an MRI turned up clean. The scrimmages end Friday.
The Knicks were set to have a member on the main Team USA roster, but power forward Julius Randle was a last-second pullout, citing a family issue.
Robinson, after being named second-team All-Rookie in the spring, is coming off a solid summer-league showing in Sin City. Robinson played all five games and was named to the first-team All-Summer League.
Not dire, but certainly concerning!
By the way, I love the idea of the Summer League having a “First Team.” “Oh yeah, well, I was first team in the Summer League!”
