New York Knicks Lose Robinson For At Least a Month

The surprising New York Knicks have been chomped on by the injury bug as the team has lost forward Mitchell Robinson for at least four weeks. Robinson will undergo surgery on his fractured right hand and it's likely he misses four-to-six weeks if he doesn't have any set backs.

The injury was horrible luck as Robinson suffered the injury after he collided with teammate Julius Randle on Friday versus the Washington Wizards. Robinson has been one of the many bright spots for the Knicks as he's averaging 8.4 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks per game. 

The 22-year-old starter has been a solid piece for coach Tom Thibodeau, who will now have to rely on Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson to pick up the slack in the paint.
