Thomas Robinson signed with BC Khimki in Russia.
He's probably a first-round pick in Russian fantasy hoops. We've seen Truck dominate at times and he should have his way with overseas competition. Perhaps Robinson makes it back in the NBA, but the 26-year-old forward may not be back in the league. Sat, Sep 23, 2017 05:50:00 PM

Thomas Robinson is working out for the Celtics on Monday.

If the Kyrie Irving trade goes through this week, the Celtics will have a roster spot available. A rebounding machine, Robinson would potentially provide some relief off the bench behind Al Horford and Aron Baynes, but he wouldn't have much fantasy value in Boston. No deal is imminent for now.

Thomas Robinson said if he was in the right situation he would "easily" be among the top 10 rebounders in the league.

He does have a solid argument, as Robinson averaged 14.3 rebounds per 36 minutes last season. He also would've ranked fifth in the NBA in total rebound percentage (21.8), but didn't see enough minutes to qualify. T-Rob is hopeful to re-sign with the Lakers and has also been linked to the Wolves, but it's hard to see a path to reliable minutes on either of those teams.

Thomas Robinson is getting interest from the Wolves, according to Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype.

The reported interest has also been confirmed from Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News. Robinson hasn't quite lived up to the billing as the No. 4 pick going to Sacramento, but he can provide energy as a rebounder and as a roll man. Truck probably wouldn't be in the rotation with the Wolves.

Thomas Robinson double-doubled on Sunday with 12 points, 10 rebounds, two steals and one assist in just 20 minutes of action.

Ivica Zubac (ankle) is done for the season, Timofey Mozgov has been shut down, and Tarik Black was also out today with a knee injury. Luke Walton staggered his frontcourt with Robinson serving as the backup for both Larry Nance and Julius Randle, and he made the most of the minutes. He was coming off a game with 16 points and nine boards, and is worth a look with L.A.'s frontcourt so thin.

Thomas Robinson looked great on Saturday vs. the Clippers with 16 points, nine rebounds, three assists and one steal in 22 minutes.

Larry Nance got into some early foul trouble, so Robinson entered the game and went nuts in the first quarter with eight points and eight rebounds in his first eight minutes. With Ivica Zubac (ankle) out for the season, Robinson is probably looking at minutes in the teens going forward, putting him on the radar as a rebounding specialist. Just keep in mind that he's a career 50.9 percent shooter from the free throw line.

Thomas Robinson played just 14 minutes on Thursday but hit 6-of-9 shots for 12 points and three rebounds off the Lakers bench.

Ivica Zubac went down with a high-ankle sprain so the Lakers will be using a combination of Tarik Black, Larry Nance and T-Rob to fill the gaps. Nance is probably the best bet for success, but Black and Robinson could also see a boost if Zubac misses as much time as we think he might.

Thomas Robinson (illness) played two scoreless minutes off L.A.'s bench on Sunday.

Robinson was available on Friday but he didn't play, falling victim to a DNP-CD. He can safely be left on the wire in all formats.

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.

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.
Tue, Feb 28, 2017 09:02:00 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.

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.

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.

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.
