Thomas Robinson said that he wants a long-term relationship with the Nets.
"I’m glad I’m finally here and hopefully we can make this a long-term relationship," Robinson said. "This time I hope it’s for real." Robinson nearly ended up with the Nets last season before the 76ers swooped in and signed him, but he now has a two-year deal with Brooklyn. Nets general manager Billy King said that Robinson will bring a physical presence to their frontcourt, but owners in standard leagues can ignore him while the Nets are at full strength.

The Nets announced Thomas Robinson had right knee surgery on Wednesday to repair a torn meniscus.

Menisectomy surgeries usually take 4-8 weeks of recovery time, so this shouldn't affect his status for training camp. Plus, this is his first knee surgery in his professional career. Robinson could compete for minutes with the Nets, but he doesn't block a lot of shots and is a poor foul shooter.

Thomas Robinson sustained a small meniscus tear to his right knee on Tuesday while working out, and is scheduled to undergo arthroscopic surgery on Wednesday.

The timetable on this kind of procedure tends to be in the 4-6 week range, but we'll be waiting for an official timeline from the Nets following his surgery on Wednesday. The Nets will start the year with quite a bit of depth in their frontcourt, so it will be hard for Robinson to get enough minutes to matter in most leagues.

Thomas Robinson admitted to not handling failure well during his initial tenure in the NBA.

"I wasn’t prepared for, ‘What if I got traded?’ ‘What if I got hurt?’ ‘What if I don’t play this year?’ I didn’t handle it the correct way; I admit it," he said. The Nets want Robinson to model his game after Tristan Thompson and T-Rob realizes he's facing a make-or-break opportunity in Brooklyn.

Thomas Robinson will sign with the Nets on a two-year deal worth around $3 million with a player option for the second season.

The Nets really wanted Robinson when he was cut from the Blazers last season, but the 76ers swooped in to grab him off waivers to get to the salary floor. The Nets lost Mason Plumlee in a trade, so this is a nice fit for the Nets. Plus, Truck helps on the offensive glass with so much perimeter scoring on BK. He's still only worth a look in very deep leagues.

Thomas Robinson is reportedly close to coming to terms on a two-year deal with the Nets.

With Brook Lopez a constant injury risk, the Nets need some depth in their frontcourt, and Robinson will provide them with that. However, he's unlikely to be a major part of Brooklyn's rotations, so he should not be targeted in standard fantasy leagues.

Thomas Robinson is getting some interest from the Nets.

The Nets need frontcourt help in a big way. Robinson showed he can really hit the boards and had some flashes on the offensive side. He won't get a big deal and may have to impress at summer league.
Jun 29 - 7:46 PM

Thomas Robinson double-doubled against the Heat on Wednesday with 13 points, 10 boards, four assists and two steals in 26 minutes.

He did turn the ball over six times and T-Rob being a bit of a bull in a china shop has been a bugaboo. The 76ers will likely give him a look, but he's not expected to play more than 20 minutes when the team is healthy next season. Robinson won't be worth drafting in almost any league.
Apr 15 - 10:46 PM

Thomas Robinson scored two points with 10 rebounds, two assists, one steal and three fouls in 22 minutes off the bench against the Bulls on Saturday.

He made just 1-of-7 from the field and coach Brett Brown just won't give him more minutes no matter how much we want him to. Still, he's solid on per-minute value as long as you don't care about percentages. He's worth a look in points leagues.
Apr 11 - 11:00 PM

Thomas Robinson is listed as the starter against the Bulls on Saturday.

Could this be it? The fantasy world has been clamoring for T-Rob to get minutes and we might finally get a chance. If he gets over 30 minutes, he could be looking at a huge game. Start him in all leagues and worry about the sub-par shooting later.
Apr 11 - 7:26 PM

Coach Brett Brown said he's "happy" with the role Thomas Robinson has been in.

In other words, it doesn't sound like Robinson is a candidate to take over at starting power forward should Nerlens Noel (ankle) need to miss time. Robinson has seen his playing time increase to the lower 20s, averaging 23.0 minutes per game over his last three with 10.0 points, 7.3 boards, 1.7 steals and 0.3 blocks. There's a decent chance he plays 24-28 minutes on Saturday against the Bulls, so give him a look if you're looking for a cheap double-double.
Apr 9 - 7:31 PM

Thomas Robinson had 11 points, 12 rebounds and two steals off the bench on Wednesday.

Nerlens Noel left early with a sprained ankle and doesn't sound likely to play Saturday, meaning T-Rob, along with Jerami Grant, could get a boost this weekend. Robinson's not a must-own player, but could have a nice game on Saturday if Noel is indeed in street clothes.
Apr 8 - 10:11 PM

Thomas Robinson (ankle) is questionable to play vs. the Wizards on Wednesday.

Robinson has missed the past two games because of his ankle, but the 76ers probably won't feel the need to rush him back before he is 100 percent. If Robinson is unable to play on Wednesday, Furkan Aldemir, Jerami Grant and Luc Mbah a Moute will be all in the mix for more minutes, but none of them are attractive options in standard leagues.

Thomas Robinson (ankle) will not play vs. the Knicks on Sunday as expected.

This will be Robinson's second consecutive game in street clothes and the 76ers could have really used him tonight with Nerlens Noel (eye) considered questionable. The 76ers only play twice next week, making it safe to drop Robinson in most leagues. Furkan Aldemir, Luc Mbah a Moute and Jerami Grant will be in the mix for more minutes Sunday, but none of them are attractive options.
Apr 5 - 12:03 PM

Thomas Robinson (left ankle) will not play vs. the Hornets on Saturday or against the Knicks on Sunday.

It isn't clear when he suffered the injury or how severe it is, so we will provide further details as soon as we know more. The 76ers' rotations are a mess, meaning Furkan Aldemir, Luc Mbah a Moute and Jerami Grant will all be in the mix for more minutes. Robinson has played well for Philly, but head coach Brett Brown has refused to set him loose and he is only worth holding onto in deeper leagues if you need help in rebounds.
