Glenn Robinson III (left ankle) has been cleared to return and he expects to play Friday vs. the Hawks.
Head coach Nate McMillan said he "could see" GRIII earning minutes in the 5-10 minute range on Friday night, but wouldn't guarantee he'd actually get out there. Either way, he'll be eased back into things slowly, and with how well Bojan Bogdanovic has played this year, it'll be tough for GRIII to earn enough minutes to matter in most formats.

Coach Nate McMillan said that Glenn Robinson III (left ankle) likely won't return until after the All-Star break.

Robinson III has been making progress in his rehab and has been playing for the Pacers G-League affiliate. However, the Pacers don't want to rush him back to the big leagues. There is a nine-day break between the last game before the All-Star break and the first game after. GRIII will be on a minutes limit when he gets back, which limits his fantasy value. He should be left on waivers.
Feb 6 - 9:33 AM

Glenn Robinson III (left ankle) will not play Monday vs. the Wizards.

He's inching his way closer towards making his regular-season debut, but he's still not quite ready. GRIII will likely be dealing with too many restrictions this season to establish himself as a relevant name in fantasy hoops.
Feb 5 - 5:44 PM

Glenn Robinson III (left ankle) is questionable for Monday's game vs. the Wizards.

He played a game in the G-League this week, so it's just a matter of whether or not the Pacers feel comfortable throwing him out there. He'll have heavy restrictions, so fantasy owners can watch his progress from the wire.
Feb 4 - 11:31 AM

The Pacers have assigned Glenn Robinson III to their G-League affiliate.

Robinson is inching his way back towards a return to NBA game action. This is his second rehab assignment this week. He should be back around the All-Star break. He can be left on waivers.

Glenn Robinson III (left ankle) has been assigned to the G-League.

This is the last step of his rehab. Robinson will play for the Mad Ants on Thursday and should be ready to make his season debut for the Pacers any day now. He'll have restrictions early on and will compete for minutes with Bojan Bogdanovic.
Feb 1 - 9:26 AM

Glenn Robinson III (left ankle) practiced with the team on Tuesday for the first time since September, but coach Nate McMillan said he is "still a ways away."

Robinson told reporters earlier this month that he was hoping to return before the All-Star break, but McMillan said on Tuesday that there was only a "small chance" that happens. GRIII will be eased back into action once he is cleared to play, and will likely be on a minutes restriction. He should be left on waivers in all standard leagues.
Jan 23 - 1:18 PM

Glenn Robinson III (ankle surgery) said he's hoping to return before the All-Star break (starts Feb. 15).

Robinson practiced on Sunday which would've indicated that he's ahead of schedule, but it was reportedly only half-court drills. "I'm going to try," Robinson said. "I'm going to do everything I can to try. I'm really itching to get out there. They're not telling me an expected time; all I know is I'm feeling great these past three days." Coach Nate McMillan said he's not close to game action, so he's safe to leave on the wire in most formats.

Jan 8 - 11:49 AM

Glenn Robinson III (ankle) said that he practiced for the first time on Sunday.

He added that he's ahead of schedule, but he didn't mention a return date. His original timetable had him returning around mid-January, so if he's ahead of schedule then he could be back any day now. He'll be eased into the rotation very slowly and he'll have to compete with Lance Stephenson for minutes behind Victor Oladipo and Bojan Bogdanovic, so he doesn't have much stash appeal at the moment.
Jan 7 - 1:43 PM

Glenn Robinson III (ankle) said that he's been cleared to run, jump and shoot since Dec. 8.

He added that he's feeling great, but he wasn't ready to put a timetable on his return. The Pacers will continue to evaluate him as his workload ramps up, and it sounds like he's on track to return right after the new year. Bojan Bogdanovic has played really well in the starting lineup, so Robinson isn't the greatest stash.

Glenn Robinson III (ankle) is no longer in a walking boot.

He was also doing some light shooting on Thursday, but he wasn't taking any jumpers. Robinson III had ankle surgery back in early October and was given a timetable of 3-4 months, so it's still unlikely that we'll see him before the new year. He's not a great stash with Bojan Bogdanovic playing well.

Glenn Robinson III (ankle) had surgery and is expected to miss 3-4 months.

Ouch. That's a longer timetable then expected and he could be looking at an All-Star break return. With Robinson III out, the Pacers will really have to call on Lance Stephenson off the bench. Born Ready is a decent flier in deeper leagues or even competitive standard formats.

Glenn Robinson III will reportedly have surgery to repair his left ankle, with an expected return date in mid-December.

GR3 suffered a high ankle sprain in late September, and his original two-month timetable will be extended 2-4 weeks due to the need for surgery. It's an unfortunate turn of events, especially since the Pacers lack wing depth, but Robinson should be back in action before the New Year. Bojan Bogdanovic and Lance Stephenson stand to gain the most in his absence.

Glenn Robinson III sustained a left ankle sprain and is expected to miss two months.

That's a tough blow and he'll be targeting a Thanksgiving return. Coach Nate McMillan said GR3 went up to attack the basket at practice, but someone came down on his leg. Robinson III had a good chance to get in the rotation and was likely to back up Bojan Bogdanovic, but now the Pacers will have to slide Lance Stephenson over to the three more.

Glenn Robinson III has made it a priority to improve as a ball handler and playmaker this summer.

"One of the biggest things was my ball handling this summer," said Robinson. "Just being able to create for others, you know, help my teammates out a lot. I wasn’t in a lot of pick-and-roll positions in the past couple of years but that’s one of the biggest things that I’ve been working on this summer." Robinson should see some increased opportunity this upcoming season with Paul George no longer on the roster, but he'll likely begin the year coming off the bench behind Bojan Bogdanovic.
