Thomas Robinson scored three points with six rebounds and one block in 15 minutes off the bench on Saturday.
Robinson could be forced into a bigger role if Brook Lopez (foot) misses any time, and we've seen decent rebounding numbers despite low minute totals this year. He'll be first on the list of pickups if Lopez does indeed miss time, but he won't be a slam dunk pickup. Nov 8 - 7:07 AM

Thomas Robinson acknowledged that turning down a long-term contract this offseason was a gamble, but he's confident that he'll be able to play himself into a higher pay grade this season.

"It was tough to gamble on myself and turn down a longer contract, but the way I look it, I really have this year to prove myself," said Robinson who agreed to a vets minimum deal with a player option in year 2. "I have no doubt that once next summer comes, I’ll be back on my way and I’ll have made the right choice." Robinson has shown flashes this season, but it'll take an injury to one of the Nets' starting frontcourt players for him to earn standard league consideration.

Thomas Robinson played just nine minutes on Monday against the Bucks.

Robinson had two boards and one assist and until he clears himself of nights like these he is radioactive in fantasy leagues.
Nov 3 - 12:24 AM

Thomas Robinson picked up eight points and 12 rebounds in only 15 minutes of action vs. the Grizzlies on Saturday.

His energy was palpable and Robinson basically out-worked everyone else on the court for available rebounds, nine of which came in the second quarter alone. He has a career total rebound rate of 18.6 percent, and is earning a solid spot in Lionel Hollins' rotation, but he's not a viable fantasy play while averaging 15-20 minutes a night.
Oct 31 - 11:29 PM

Thomas Robinson had another nice game against the Celtics on Monday during a 111-105 loss, scoring 15 points with nine rebounds and two steals.

He's been one of the best rebounders in the NBA this month and he is probably headed for minutes in the rotation. Robinson isn't much of a shot-blocker and can't make free throws, so he's only worth a look in very deep leagues.

Thomas Robinson admitted he's now more mature than he was earlier in his NBA career.

"I’m glad I’m here a few years down the road, after the stuff I’ve been through. I’m more mature now than I was when I probably wanted to come here," Robinson said. After being written off by most fans and all of his previous organizations, Robinson is facing a last chance in Brooklyn.

Thomas Robinson returned from a sprained right wrist to finish Wednesday's exhibition with two points, 12 rebounds, one steal and two blocks in 18 minutes off Brooklyn's bench.

Robinson grabbed 16 rebounds in 26 minutes during his only other preseason performance on Oct. 5. It's great to see him healthy but there's no cause for celebration in fantasy circles -- Robinson's turnover rate has exceeded his total rebound rate in two of his three NBA seasons, and his minutes will be held in check as long as Thaddeus Young is healthy. Unfortunately for T-Rob, Young has averaged 3.6 DNPs over the past five seasons.

Thomas Robinson (wrist) will play on Wednesday against the Celtics.

Robinson was a rebounding monster in his only preseason game, posting an absurd total rebounding rate of 36.4 in his 26 minutes. He could get in the rotation, but is only worth a look in very deep leagues.
Oct 14 - 5:51 PM

Thomas Robinson (sprained right wrist) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's preseason game against Boston.

Robinson is getting close to making a return, and he said if he misses today's game, he'll definitely be out there for Sunday's preseason matchup with the 76ers. He could have some low-end value in deep leagues as a rebounding specialist, but as a reserve in Brooklyn, he's best left undrafted in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 14 - 10:47 AM

Thomas Robinson (wrist) said he'll "for sure" be ready to play when the Nets take on the 76ers on Sunday.

He also sounded confident that he'd be able to play in Wednesday's preseason game vs. the Celtics, so we should have another update following Wednesday morning's shootaround. Robinson doesn't bring a lot to the stat sheet aside from rebounding, so it's unlikely he's able to establish himself as anything more than a low-end asset in deep leagues while the Nets are healthy.
Oct 13 - 4:39 PM

Thomas Robinson (wrist) said he's uncertain if he'll play on Wednesday.

Robinson is hoping to be cleared before Wednesday's game, but it sounds like he's getting closer to returning to action. The 24-year-old has some rebounding upside, but he's not worth more than late-round flier in standard fantasy leagues.
Oct 13 - 1:56 PM

Thomas Robinson (wrist) returned to non-contact practice on Monday.

Robinson's wrist has been an issue for about a week, but it isn't expected to linger for much longer. When he does get back on the floor, Robinson should be a cheap source of rebounds in deeper fantasy formats.
Oct 12 - 12:43 PM

Thomas Robinson (wrist) will not play on Saturday vs. the 76ers.

The revenge game will have to wait. Robinson could potentially be the first big off the bench for the Nets if he can outplay Andrea Bargnani, so he could be a nice source of boards in very deep leagues.
Oct 10 - 11:38 AM

Thomas Robinson (wrist) did not participate in practice on Friday.

In case you missed it, Robinson took a hard fall in Monday's preseason game and hasn't played since. The injury is still said to be minor, but the Nets have every right to exercise caution during the preseason. With Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez set to soak up a ton of minutes in the frontcourt, Robinson isn't an option in standard leagues.
Oct 9 - 2:10 PM

Thomas Robinson (wrist) will not play in Thursday's preseason game vs. Detroit.

The wrist injury is believed to be minor, so we wouldn't read too much into his absence from an early preseason game. That being said, Robinson will be coming off the bench this season behind Thaddeus Young and Brook Lopez, so it'll be tough for him to establish himself as a viable option in standard leagues.
