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. Jul 22 - 4:44 PM

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.

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.

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.

Thomas Robinson made all four of his shot attempts in 15 minutes on Sunday, finishing a win vs. Memphis with eight points, three rebounds and one assist.

It looks as though Robinson will stick in the Blazers' rotation despite LaMarcus Aldridge's return, at least until Joel Freeland (MCL) returns to action. "Thomas has played with [Aldridge] which is something we hadn't looked at earlier in the season," said coach Terry Stotts. "I think we have to stay with that." While T-Rob's productive role is good news for the Blazers, it's irrelevant in most fantasy leagues.

Thomas Robinson played 19 minutes off the bench on Thursday with 10 points, two boards, one assist and one steal vs. the Hawks.

Coach Terry Stotts tweaked his rotation a bit and gave T-Rob some run at center next to LaMarcus Aldridge. Robinson joked earlier this season about how he won’t see many minutes while LaMarcus Aldridge is healthy, but it turned out he really didn’t play much with Aldridge out. He played a disappointing 13.9 minutes per game over his previous seven and we would have to see it again before suggesting him as an add.

Thomas Robinson played just 16 minutes off the bench on Tuesday, hitting 4-of-8 shots for nine points, nine rebounds, a steal and a block.

Dorell Wright is the safer play for as long as LaMarcus Aldridge is out with a back injury, but T-Rob could be a fantasy factor due to the Blazers' five-game schedule next week. Having said that, his low minutes are a big concern and he's probably not going to be reliable enough to actually put into a lineup. Especially if Aldridge is back next week.
Mar 19 - 1:42 AM

Blazers forward Thomas Robinson played only nine minutes off the bench on Sunday, despite LaMarcus Aldridge's continued absence with a bruised back.

He finished with five points, four rebounds and one block but didn't help his cause by racking up three fouls during that span. Aldridge may miss more games but the early returns have been disappointing for Robinson, who doesn't belong on fantasy rosters unless Terry Stotts' rotations change dramatically on Tuesday.
Mar 17 - 9:28 AM

Thomas Robinson played just seven minutes against the Pelicans on Friday with two points and three boards.

He didn't even check in until 1:13 left in the third quarter, which was a big surprise. The Blazers website did a story about him stepping up today and most signs pointed to him getting some run. Perhaps coach Terry Stotts wanted to use a stretch four in Dorell Wright to keep Anthony Davis out of the paint and maybe he can shed some light in the post-game. Robinson could bounce back, but we obviously wouldn't blame you for cutting him after this.
Mar 14 - 11:20 PM

The Oregonian projects Thomas Robinson as the Blazers' starting power forward in place of LaMarcus Aldridge (bruised back).

Aldridge is going to miss at least two games after taking a scary fall against the Spurs on Wednesday. When LMA was out for the final five games of February, Robinson appeared in four them, missing one due to a knee injury and starting zero times. He averaged 7.0 points, 8.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks while playing 20.2 minutes. Robinson is a plus rebounder with some upside thanks to natural talent, but he's going to be sharing time with stretch four Dorell Wright. Consider him a deep-league flier only.
Mar 14 - 8:51 AM

Thomas Robinson scored just one point in 11 minutes vs. the Spurs on Wednesday during a 103-90 loss.

It was a bit of an underwhelming game considering LaMarcus Aldridge went down tonight, but coach Terry Stotts really sticks to his guns with respect to his rotations for a game plan. The last time we saw Robinson healthy and LMA hurt, he put up 14 points and 18 boards. He's not a sure thing, but he's the best bet for production based on Aldridge likely to miss time.
Mar 13 - 12:38 AM

Thomas Robinson returned to the lineup against the Mavericks on Friday with 11 points, nine boards, one steal and two blocks in 20 minutes.

He was playing outstanding ball before an injury to his patellar tendon and the Blazers may be more inclined to give him more minutes. Of course, it's going to be tough for Robinson to get a lot of momentum with the Blazers starting frontcourt locked into their minutes. "Minute restriction? I play behind LaMarcus [Aldridge]. Of course I am," Robinson said before Friday's game. He's only on the radar in deeper leagues for now.
Mar 8 - 1:10 AM

Updating a previous item, Thomas Robinson (knee) will be available for Friday's game against the Blazers.

Robinson gained medical clearance on his strained left patella tendon Friday. He'll give the second unit some bulk behind starters LaMarcus Aldridge and Robin Lopez.
