Thomas Robinson (illness) available to play Friday vs. Boston.

Robinson has missed two straight games due to flu-like symptoms but has not been a consistent part of the Lakers rotation since early January.
Mar 3 - 2:04 PM

Thomas Robinson (illness) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Hornets.

He's battling flu-like symptoms and went through warmups, but he indicated that he wasn't going to play. Robinson hasn't been in the rotation lately, so fantasy owners can ignore this.
Feb 28 - 9:02 PM

Thomas Robinson (illness) is being listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Hornets.

Robinson was sent home during shootaround, so he feels a bit closer to doubtful. He's typically not in the rotation, so his playing status is pretty irrelevant in fantasy hoops.
Feb 28 - 2:04 PM

Thomas Robinson scored nine points in 17 minutes off the bench on Sunday, adding eight boards, four steals and two turnovers.

This was the first time Robinson had seen any action since Jan. 22, so we're obviously going to need to see a repeat performance before recommending him as an add in any format.
Feb 26 - 8:45 PM

Thomas Robinson played just four minutes vs. Memphis with one assist and one turnover.

He picked up two quick fouls and that was the end of his night. Coach Luke Walton said before the game that he wanted to use the Tarik Black and Robinson combo going forward, but Timofey Mozgov was playing well tonight. Robinson's minutes should be back in the teens next time out, but he's just a dart throw in DFS for the time being.
Jan 4 - 1:42 AM

It seems likely that the Lakers will keep Thomas Robinson past Jan. 10, at which point his one-year contract becomes fully guaranteed.

Robinson has surprisingly become an important piece for the Lakers due to the injury to Larry Nance Jr. Robinson has played at least 16 minutes in five straight games and is averaging 7.4 points and 9.0 rebounds, while shooting 73.9 percent from the floor. When Nance returns, T-Rob will likely see his playing time reduced, but for now, he is a safe bet for 15-plus minutes a night.

Thomas Robinson played just 19 minutes on Thursday, but had eight points, 10 rebounds, a steal and a block in a 101-89 loss to the Mavericks, they're 12th straight loss to Dallas.

T-Rob is quietly hot, averaging 7.4 points, 9.0 rebounds and 0.6 blocks on 74 percent shooting over his last five games. However, he hasn't played more than 19 minutes in any of those, meaning it may be tough for him to keep up this pace of play in such limited action. He's more of a DFS punt flier than a season-long league add at this point.
Fri, Dec 30, 2016 01:31:00 AM

Thomas Robinson scored seven points with 11 rebounds, one assist and a steal in Friday's loss to the Magic.

He hit 3-of-5 shots and did just enough for his DFS owners to hit value. Robinson usually produces when he gets the minutes, but he's not a pickup with Julius Randle (personal) expected back for Sunday's game vs. the Clippers.
Fri, Dec 23, 2016 09:59:00 PM

Thomas Robinson hit 3-of-4 shots for eight points, 12 rebounds and a block in 18 minutes of Thursday's 115-108 loss to the Heat.

He got some nice run due to Julius Randle being out for the birth of a child and played well when he was on the court tonight. It took some stones to take a flier on him in DFS tonight, as he hadn't appeared in the Lakers' last four games. And since Randle's expected back soon, forget about T-Rob for now.
Thu, Dec 22, 2016 11:20:00 PM

With Julius Randle (hip) returning to the starting lineup, Thomas Robinson will return come off the bench on Tuesday vs. the Pelicans.

Robinson started at power forward in place of Randle on Sunday vs. Atlanta and had nine points and eight boards in just 15 minutes of action. Randle has yet to play more than 15 minutes in any game this season. T-Rob will compete for minutes with Larry Nance off the Lakers bench going forward. Robinson has limited fantasy value and can be left on waiver wires

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.
Mon, Nov 28, 2016 12:47:00 AM

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.
Sun, Nov 27, 2016 09:26:00 PM

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.
Sat, Nov 26, 2016 02:42:00 AM

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
