Thomas Robinson started at PF vs. the Hawks on Sunday and had nine points and eight boards in just 15 minutes of action.

T-Rob got the nod because coach Luke Walton wanted to go bigger tonight. He may have also wanted to keep his usual second-unit rotation intact, and the result was Brandon Ingram heading back to the bench. Larry Nance logged 32 minutes to limit Robinson's minutes, and with Randle day-to-day there's no obvious appeal here.

Thomas Robinson will start at PF for the Lakers on Sunday.

He'll be joined by Jose Calderon, Nick Young, Luol Deng and Timofey Mozgov. It had been Brandon Ingram starting in the absence of Julius Randle (hip), but coach Luke Walton is opting for a bigger lineup vs. the Hawks tonight. Robinson is an interesting DFS punt play, but he's not assured big minutes with Ingram and Larry Nance both in the mix.

Thomas Robinson grabbed 10 rebounds in 16 minutes on Friday vs. the Warriors, adding six points, one block and one steal on 3-of-8 shooting.

Robinson has made two rare appearances in a row due to the injury to Julius Randle (hip). He's only getting minutes in the teens right now and didn't play well in his last outing, so he's not quite on the fantasy radar outside of very deep leagues.

Thomas Robinson has made the Lakers opening night roster.

Robinson hasn't lived up to the hype he generated coming into the league as the No. 5 overall pick in the 2012 draft. However, he did show flashes of promise last season with the Nets. And he impressed his new coach Luke Walton in training camp and the preseason. Walton said he is "shocked" that Robinson hasn't been able to stick on a roster for an extended period of time

Thomas Robinson received no guaranteed money in his contract with the Lakers, according to Alex Kennedy of Basketball Insiders.

It's common for training camp invites to get little to no guaranteed money, but this really speaks to how bare the market was for T-Rob's services. Although Los Angeles has a lot of frontcourt depth, Robinson's hustle and effort could give him an edge to make the final roster. He'll have to beat out several others, but it's not an impossible scenario. Fellow camp invitees Metta World Peace, Julian Jacobs and Travis Wear also received no guaranteed money in their deals.

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.

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.
