Nate Robinson (knee) posted a video of himself dunking on Friday.
He's on track for training camp and this video fits right in with that timetable. Robinson tore his ACL on Jan. 29, so he probably won't be at full speed to start the year. Although, he's a freak athlete and may be able to get back to 100 percent faster than guys like Lou Williams or Rajon Rondo. Nate is not worth drafting in most leagues until he's consistently in the mid-20s for minutes. Aug 16 - 4:04 PM

The Nuggets announced that Nate Robinson has exercised his player option for next season.

He was having a solid season with the Nuggets last year, but his ACL tear really forced his hand to not hit free agency. Robinson had surgery back on Jan. 31, so he will at least have an outside chance of being ready for the 2014 season opener. Of course, fantasy owners shouldn't be targeting him since it will likely take some time before he's 100 percent.

Nate Robinson will exercise his $2.1 million player option to stay with the Nuggets next season.

The 30-year-old guard is recovering from ACL surgery but he said he will "for sure" be ready for training camp, and he'll have plenty of motivation in a contract year. He's recently been promoting his autobiography, Heart Over Height, an appropriate title for the 5'9" three-time NBA Slam Dunk champion.

Nate Robinson (ACL surgery) is planning on returning to the Nuggets for the 2014-15 season.

Robinson has a $2.1 million player option that he will have to exercise in order to return to the Nuggets and it sounds as if he's planning on doing so. When asked if he'd be ready for training camp, Robinson answered, "Yeah, for sure." While Robinson could be a decent option in deeper leagues next season, he won't be helping any fantasy squads this season.

Nate Robinson had surgery on Friday evening to repair a torn left ACL.

The injury came on Wednesday and Robinson jogged back to the locker room. The Nuggets said Nate had an ACL sprain on Thursday, so technically their diagnosis is correct since a complete tear is considered a Grade III sprain. Robinson will be out for the rest of the season and his start to the 2014-15 season could be in jeopardy. Evan Fournier should pick up the majority of his 19.4 minutes per game and is worth a long look in standard leagues.

The New York Daily News is hearing "word out of Denver" that Nate Robinson has a torn ACL.

So far, Denver media outlets are only reporting a sprained ACL. It could be a case of semantics. If the sprain is bad enough that it requires surgery, Robinson will be done for the year regardless. Look for Evan Fournier to be the first guard off the bench behind Ty Lawson and Randy Foye going forward. Fournier had 19 points, six assists, five rebounds, three steals and three 3-pointers in 38 minutes on Wednesday with Lawson (shoulder) sidelined.

Nate Robinson has been diagnosed with a sprained ACL and will undergo further tests on Friday to determine a plan for his rehabilitation.

Nate could be facing a long absence, leaving the Nuggets' backcourt particularly short-handed with Ty Lawson (rotator cuff) already day-to-day. Randy Foye scored 33 points in 40 minutes on Wednesday, while Evan Fournier had 19 points, five boards, six assists and three steals in 38 minutes off the bench, and both guys are worth a long look in the wake of NateRob's diagnosis.

Nate Robinson suffered a left knee strain in the first quarter of Wednesday's game against the Bobcats and will not return.

He jogged back to the locker room under his own power and it's a little surprising he will not return to the game. The team will give him an MRI on Thursday and his owners will want to check back for an update. Robinson finished with no points in six minutes. Evan Fournier will run the point for the Nuggets tonight.

Nate Robinson scored 12 points, stole the ball twice and handed out a team-high eight assists with just one turnover on Sunday.

His efficient performance in 24 minutes off the bench helped earn Denver their second straight victory, as he torched the Kings' reserve guards and made it look easy. A two-game streak is modest, to be sure, but it's only the Nuggets' fourth winning streak of the season.
Jan 27 - 12:55 AM

Nate Robinson started hot with 13 points in the first half of Saturday's win over the Pacers, finishing with 15 points, three assists, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers in just 19 minutes.

He's been a potent scorer for much of the season and his hot again over his last five outings. In that stretch, Robinson averaged 16.0 points, 1.8 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.4 triples on a stellar 55.6 percent from the floor in 21.4 minutes per game. He could disappear as fast as he's picked it up, but it's not a bad idea to ride Nate while he's in one of his patented grooves.

Nuggets coach Brian Shaw is unhappy with his team's effort and execution, which may prompt him to shuffle his rotation.

It doesn't sound as though any starting jobs are at risk but we'll keep an eye on the Nuggets when they return to action on Thursday. "As we go along I might have to look at changes ... in terms of getting guys in and out who are paying more attention to detail on the defensive end in particular," Shaw said. "Because right now that’s what hurting our team the most."

Nate Robinson was hot from the floor on Friday vs. the Cavs, shooting 8-of-11 from the field for 19 points with one board, two assists, one steal and three 3-pointers.

After falling off to start the year, Nate now has a combined 43 points over his last two games. He's done this just in 22.0 minutes per game and shooting 17-of-23 from the field had a lot to do with it. It's hard to trust him in most leagues with such limited playing time and owners in standard leagues can probably do better.
Jan 18 - 1:01 AM

Nate Robinson caught fire and hit 9-of-12 shots and three 3-pointers on his way to 24 points, four rebounds, three assists and a steal in just 23 minutes off the Nuggets bench Wednesday.

Lil' Him scored 12 straight points at one point in the fourth quarter and willed the Nuggets to this win. He had scored a grand total of 14 points over his previous three games, so there's no reason to think tonight's amazing performance will become a regular occurrence. The 24 points tied his season high, which came in Game 2 back on Nov. 1.
Jan 16 - 3:10 AM

Nate Robinson hit just 1-of-7 shots for three points and four rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench on Monday.

The disappearance of Andre Miller was supposed to bring stability to Robinson's role and late-round value but it hasn't happened like that. That doesn't mean he can't turn it around, but for now owners in 12-14 team formats can look in other places for fantasy value.
Jan 14 - 2:01 AM

Nate Robinson played 23 minutes against the Thunder on Thursday with six points, one rebound, two assists and no turnovers on 3-of-13 shooting.

He was a game-time decision for tonight due to an ankle injury, but he looked like he had some bounce in his step and was healthy for the most part. Robinson was coming in with some momentum over his previous three, averaging 12.3 points and 2.3 triples in three wins. Even though he's being outplayed by teammate Randy Foye, he's still worth a look in some formats.
