The Lakers signed Thomas Robinson to a one-year deal.
The Truck finally gets a deal as one of the best forwards left on the market. Robinson had a handful of impressive games last year, including a streak of six double-doubles before a season-ending injury on Apr. 8. Even with the strong finish, Robinson will have to play extremely well in camp to earn minutes out of the gate. Sep 21 - 2:54 PM

The Suns, Pacers and Hawks are interested in free agent forward Thomas Robinson according to Amico Hoops.

We haven't heard much about Robinson this offseason, so his market value is probably pretty low. He did have a nice finish to the 2015-16 season with averages of 14.6 points and 12.3 rebounds in seven starts, but he shot just 44.7 percent from the field and 43.1 percent from the line on the season.

The Pistons could go after unrestricted free agent Thomas Robinson, according to David Mayo of

A Truck belongs in Detroit, right? Nickname references aside, the Pistons will likely need another power forward with Henry Ellenson needing a lot of work after one year at Marquette. Robinson wouldn't have much value because he'd likely only get minutes at power forward.

Thomas Robinson intends to opt out of his contract for the 2016-17 season.

It makes sense because the big man would've made just $1.05 million if he exercised his player option. Despite struggling for the majority of the season, Robinson thrived in seven starts down the stretch, averaging 14.6 points and 12.3 rebounds with six double-doubles. He's already been linked to the Spurs this summer, but expect several other suitors to emerge in the coming weeks.

Thomas Robinson is reportedly expected to opt out of his deal this offseason in order to become an unrestricted free agent.

Robinson figures to see a nice pay raise after putting in averages of 14.6 points and 12.3 rebounds through seven games as a starter, and it'll be interesting to see if he seeks a change of scenery as a free agent. The Spurs could be an option for him with reports suggesting that San Antonio may be ready to move on from Boris Diaw, and David West potentially set to hit the open market as he has a player option on Year-2, but the Spurs would basically present Robinson with zero opportunity to establish himself as a standard league asset in fantasy hoops.

Thomas Robinson (knee) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Raptors.

Henry Sims and Chris McCullough figure to make up the Nets starting frontcourt on Wednesday sans Robinson, while Bojan Bogdanovic will likely spend some time at the four-spot. It's not a great matchup for Sims or McCullough, so those guys will be slightly risky punts in DFS on a 14-game Wednesday night, despite the increased opportunity. Robinson was excellent as a starter this season, so he'll likely be opting out of his contract in order to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Thomas Robinson (knee) will not play against the Wizards on Monday.

It'll be Henry Sims taking over as the starter. Robinson was a waiver-wire gem for those punting free throw percentage, but he's likely out for the season. He's likely helped his chances to make an NBA roster, too. Chris McCullough should also benefit tonight.
Apr 11 - 5:54 PM

Thomas Robinson (knee) is doubtful for Monday's game against the Wizards.

He hurt his knee on Sunday after just nine minutes of action and he might be out for the season. Henry Sims started the second half for Robinson, but the Nets went small. Sims figures to benefit most, but Chris McCullough should also step up.
Apr 11 - 2:39 PM

Thomas Robinson (knee) will not return on Sunday vs. the Pacers.

It's not even halftime yet and the game is a blowout, so hopefully the Nets are being cautious. The Nets are also calling the injury a sore knee, so he should be considered questionable for Monday's game vs. the Wizards. Robinson finished with two points and two boards in nine minutes. If he misses more time, Henry Sims and Chris McCullough will benefit.

Nets coach Tony Brown heaped praise on Thomas Robinson.

"He’s got a great motor," Brown said of Robinson. "He plays hard when he’s out there. He’s always on the glass on both ends of the floor. He’s putting himself in positions where he can finish around the rim or get fouled. He’s been very productive with his minutes, showing people he belongs in the league." Robinson has recorded six straight double-doubles, averaging 15.3 points, 13.0 boards, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals. He has a player option for next season for less than $1.1 million, so he will likely opt out and pursue a larger paycheck.
Apr 9 - 10:58 AM

Thomas Robinson scored 16 points in a 113-99 loss to the Hornets on Friday, adding 17 rebounds, one steal and one turnover in 31 minutes

This line makes it six straight double-doubles for Robinson, averaging 15.3 points, 13.0 boards, 1.7 assists, 1.3 steals and 0.2 blocks. He's probably going to double-double in every game the rest of the way and we might even see a 20-20.
Apr 8 - 9:51 PM

Thomas Robinson scored a career-high 23 points during a 121-103 loss to the Wizards on Wednesday, adding 10 rebounds, four assists and one turnover in 31 minutes.

The Truck keeps on rolling and he was 10-of-16 from the field in this loss. He had six offensive rebounds tonight and now has double-doubles in five straight. In that span, Robinson averaged 15.2 points, 12.2 boards, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.2 blocks on 55.0 percent from the field. The bad news? He's made just 37.0 percent from the line. Assuming you're OK with awful foul shooting, Robinson should be owned.
Apr 6 - 10:56 PM

Thomas Robinson scored 11 points during a 106-87 win over the Pelicans on Sunday, adding 15 rebounds and two turnovers in 27 minutes,

He should be staring the rest of the way and will be a double-double machine. As long as you're OK with sub-par foul shooting, Robinson should be owned in standard leagues.
Apr 3 - 4:51 PM

Thomas Robinson and Henry Sims will start on Sunday vs. the Pelicans.

With Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young shut down for the season, Robinson and Sims could start the rest of the way. Robinson is coming off three straight double-doubles, so he needs to be owned in all leagues for the final stretch of the season.
Apr 3 - 11:34 AM

Thomas Robinson filled the stat sheet in another start during a 105-91 loss to the Knicks on Friday, scoring 14 points with 13 rebounds, three assists and five steals in 27 minutes.

He's one of the most capable per-minute stat-stuffers this side of Boban Marjanovic. Robinson has double-doubles in each of his last three games, but keep in mind Thaddeus Young rested in two of those with Brook Lopez resting in the other. If Lopez and/or Young rest, you're starting Robinson in DFS and as a possible stream.
