Thomas Robinson moved back to the bench on Saturday against the Wizards with two points and four boards.
With LaMarcus Aldridge back, Robinson's playing time is going to be sporadic. He does have some nice impact on the offensive glass, but there's no need to grab him in almost any fantasy league while LMA is on the active list. Jan 25 - 1:00 AM

Thomas Robinson started and played 28 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday with nine points, 12 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks.

The Blazers were forced to play Dorell Wright and Victor Claver at small forward due to the loss of Nicolas Batum, so that might actually open up some minutes for Robinson at the four. That said, coach Terry Stotts used a whopping 12 different five-man lineups in just the second half tonight and ran an 11-man rotation, so we're still not too bullish on adding Truck in standard leagues, especially since he can't make free throws.

Thomas Robinson will start against the Celtics on Thursday.

There is no such thing as a surprise Terry Stotts starting lineup. Robinson still is a little rough around the edges, but he could be a double-double guy with extra minutes. That said, the messy rotations are something most fantasy owners aren't going to want to deal with.

Thomas Robinson played 21 minutes against his old Kings team on Monday, finishing with five points on 1-of-2 shooting (3-of-6 FTs), six rebounds and three steals.

Robinson has squandered prior opportunities but he could be worth a look if the LaMarcus Aldridge thumb injury is serious.
Jan 20 - 3:12 AM

Thomas Robinson did not attempt a shot against the Hawks on Saturday with five rebounds and two turnovers in 10 minutes.

He could be looking at more playing time with Joel Freeland (shoulder) out for at least two weeks. Robinson is on the Mt. Rushmore of inconsistent players and it's hard to add him based on coach Terry Stotts' fluid rotation. Unless you're in a deep league and need boards, leave him on the wire.
Jan 4 - 1:33 AM

Thomas Robinson and Joel Freeland will start against the 76ers on Friday.

The Blazers basically have three big men for their PF and C spots, but Dorell Wright and Nicolas Batum could get some run as stretch fours. It's a complete gamble rolling with Robinson, Freeland or Meyers Leonard.

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.

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.

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.
