Thomas Robinson did not score with three rebounds, one assist, two turnovers and three fouls against the Rockets on Monday.
Ouch. He didn't even look like he wanted to play and wasn't going after offensive boards like he usually does. Robinson isn't a great option in standard leagues due to his woeful foul shooting. He's also burned fantasy owners dozens of times, and this might be the last time for a lot of them. Dec 22 - 11:06 PM

Thomas Robinson played well against the Pelicans on Saturday, making 6-of-8 from the field for 12 points with four rebounds and two turnovers in 19 minutes.

He was great on the offensive end and was able to attempt six shots at the rim while making both of his jumpers. Robinson is only going to be used heavily in the right matchups and garbage time helped a bit tonight, so fantasy owners in standard leagues might want to look elsewhere.

Thomas Robinson managed just two points, six rebounds and one assist in 27 minutes off the bench on Friday against the Spurs.

Robinson is coming off a 15 and 16 night against the Bucks, but he's prone to these type of outcomes and owners should look for consistency before considering an add.

Thomas Robinson excelled in his first start of the season on Wednesday during a win over the Bucks, scoring 15 points with 16 boards, one steal, one block and four turnovers in 29 minutes.

The Bucks did a Hack-A-Rob strategy late in the game, so he only made 5-of-15 from the line. Robinson had a couple bright spots last season while the Blazers were missing LaMarcus Aldridge, but he had a number of disappearing acts, too. Coach Terry Stotts said he's going to be mixing up his lineups, so this is not the new norm for Robinson. We'll need to see it again before signing off on him as a pickup in standard leagues.

Thomas Robinson will start in place of Robin Lopez on Wednesday.

Coach Terry Stotts said he is going to mix up his lineups, so T-Rob is not likely going to draw all of the starts. Joel Freeland is expected to get some starts here and there, so keep an eye on him, as well. Chris Kaman should also get a handful of extra minutes and is the best pickup for owners needing a big man.

Thomas Robinson was a DNP-CD on Saturday.

He does get some minutes as the backup power forward, but coach Terry Stotts kept him on the bench tonight. Robinson will probably be on the "never again" list for fantasy owners in deep leagues.
Nov 16 - 2:23 AM

The Blazers have declined to pick up the fourth-year option on Thomas Robinson.

That means that the No. 5 overall pick of the 2011 draft will become an unrestricted free agent at the conclusion of the 2014-15 season. Robinson averaged 4.8 points and 4.4 rebounds through 12 minutes of action with the Blazers last season, and he's not an option in standard leagues as LaMarcus Aldridge's backup.

Thomas Robinson improved his left-handed skills while rehabbing a torn ligament in his right thumb this summer.

"Everything was left hand; left-hand floaters, left-hand hooks, left-hand layups," Robinson said. "Anything I could do with my left hand, I did it." He has been cleared for full-contact since last week and he practiced without any issues on Tuesday, so he'll be ready to backup LaMarcus Aldridge on opening night.

Thomas Robinson (thumb) has been taking contact in practices since last week, and he will be ready to play the first day of training camp.

Robinson 4.8 points and 4.4 rebounds through 12.5 minutes off the bench last season, and with some added depth to the Blazers’ frontcourt in Chris Kaman, Robinson isn't likely to see those numbers improve. He's not going to be worth drafting in most leagues.

Trail Blazers F Thomas Robinson had surgery to repair a torn right thumb ligament on Tuesday, but he's expected to recover prior to training camp.

Robinson hurt himself during a Summer League game but the good news is that it's not severe enough to affect his regular-season outlook. He averaged 12.5 minutes off the bench last year and isn't likely to have a bigger role in 2014-15 while LaMarcus Aldridge is healthy.

Thomas Robinson will likely need surgery to repair a torn ligament in his right thumb, and the recovery time would be approximately six weeks.

Thomas is seeking a second opinion on his right thumb, but surgery seems like the most likely scenario. That gives Robinson plenty of time to recover for training camp, and this will likely be a non-issue heading into next season. Robinson suffered the injury during Tuesday's Summer League game vs. the Hawks.

Trail Blazers F Thomas Robinson (torn right thumb ligament) will miss the remainder of Summer League.

Robinson said after the game that X-rays were negative, but further tests revealed bad news for the Blazers' young PF. We'll consider him "out indefinitely" until the Blazers provide an official update.
Jul 15 - 9:31 PM

Thomas Robinson didn't return to Tuesday's game after leaving with a right hand or wrist injury.

Robinson was "visibly upset" and we can only hope that he didn't suffer serious damage. We'll pass along further updates as they become available. He left the game with eight points, seven rebounds, five assists and five steals in 25 minutes of action.

Thomas Robinson scored 17 points vs. the Knicks on Saturday to go with seven boards, one assist, one block and five turnovers.

He had one of the highest motors at summer league last year and it's carried over into this one. Robinson's weak-side help really jumps off the court and his focus on the offensive glass has helped him grow. With LaMarcus Aldridge likely sticking around for a while, he'll have a tough time getting run with the Blazers.
Jul 12 - 6:55 PM

Thomas Robinson said he will play in Las Vegas Summer League in July.

He really made a splash in Vegas last year, averaging 10.4 points and 12.8 rebounds in 28.6 minutes per game. Robinson had a couple big games this season and he seems like he's found a home in Portland after things didn't work out in Sacramento and Houston, but he's still got a long way to go.
