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. Oct 13 - 9:04 PM

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.

Glenn Robinson III (calf) returned to action in Game 2 vs. the Cavaliers on Monday, finishing with four points, two rebounds and a triple in nine minutes.

He basically took Aaron Brooks' minutes (DNP-CD), so Monta Ellis, Lance Stephenson or C.J. Miles weren't really impacted by his return. Robinson hit a triple and grabbed an offensive rebound right when he entered the game and made a nice impact, so maybe the Pacers will give him a few more minutes in Game 3. There's not much fantasy appeal here.

Glenn Robinson III (calf) will be available for Game 2 vs. the Cavaliers on Monday.

As previously mentioned, coach Nate McMillan said that Robinson would see some minutes if he was cleared to play. That's obviously the case, but we'd still expect his workload to be somewhat limited. With Lance Stephenson playing well, DFS owners will probably want to steer clear of Robinson. For what it's worth, Indiana beat writer Nate Taylor speculated that his limit will likely be 15 minutes.

Glenn Robinson III (calf) will see some minutes in Game 2 vs. the Cavaliers if he's cleared by the training staff.

"No question," Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. "He's a big guard and we need big guards because they take advantage of small guards." Robinson was recently upgraded to questionable even though he was initially expected to miss most of the series, but it sounds like he's now closer to probable. The Pacers could use his size against LeBron James on the defensive end, but there's not a lot of fantasy appeal here. We should get a better idea of his status after shootaround.

Glenn Robinson (calf) is questionable for Game 2 vs. the Cavaliers on Monday.

He was initially expected to miss most of this series, so this is a mild surprise. In any case, his workload will likely be limited right out of the gate, but it helps that the Pacers may have another body to throw onto LeBron James on the defensive end. However, he's not a lock to have a big role with Lance Stephenson playing well.
Apr 16 - 1:59 PM

Glenn Robinson (calf) remains out for Game 1 against the Cavs.

His calf strain should keep him out for most of this series, but coach Nate McMillan didn't rule him out for games beyond Saturday. With Lance Stephenson in the mix, Robinson III may not be in the rotation anyway.
Apr 14 - 3:54 PM

Glenn Robinson III (calf) has been ruled out for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Hawks.

Lance Stephenson will continue to flirt with around 20 minutes off the bench sans Robinson, but he's not doing enough to warrant consideration in most leagues.
Apr 12 - 12:52 PM

Coach Nate McMillan said Glenn Robinson III will miss two weeks due to the calf strain he suffered in practice on Thursday.

With less than three weeks left in the regular season, Robinson may not see the floor again in 2016-17. He should obviously be on waivers in all leagues. C.J. Miles and Thaddeus Young are expected to see a slight uptick in minutes with GR3 sidelined.

Glenn Robinson III (left calf strain) has been ruled out for Friday against the Nuggets.

The team only called it soreness on Thursday, so this new diagnosis for a strain is worse. There is no additional info on the severity or if GR3 needed an MRI, but Robinson was losing playing time anyway. With him out, there should be a few extra minutes going to C.J. Miles, Thaddeus Young and maybe Lavoy Allen.

Glenn Robinson III (sore left calf) is questionable for Friday against the Nuggets.

Perhaps this is why he only played six minutes on Wednesday. The Pacers also did tweak their rotation and made Rodney Stuckey a DNP-CD in the loss. If Robinson III can't go, there should be a few extra minutes for Monta Ellis and C.J. Miles.
Mar 23 - 3:57 PM

Glenn Robinson III did not score in six minutes against the Celtics on Wednesday.

It's his first scoreless game since the break and the first time he's been in single-digit minutes all month. With the Pacers now healthy for the most part, Robinson III may be falling all the way out of the rotation.
Mar 22 - 10:35 PM

Glenn Robinson III hit a game-winning triple during Sunday's victory over Atlanta, ending his evening with 11 points, three 3-pointers, four boards, one steal, one block and one assist in 23 minutes.

The Slam Dunk champ also had an impressive block during crunch time, and his game-winning heroics can be viewed in the link below. GRIII has actually had some sneaky low-end value since the break with averages of 8.0 points, 1.4 triples, 1.2 steals and just 0.4 turnovers per contest on 65.2 shooting, and while the insanely high field goal percentage is obviously not sustainable, he's doing enough to warrant some attention in deep leagues.
