Robinson was hurt Friday in a loss to Boston and the Knicks announced Monday that he would undergo the procedure this week. The team said he would be evaluated in eight-to-10 weeks.
Robinson’s rebounding and shot blocking have helped fuel the Knicks’ defense and his ability to chase down missed shots has given them extra possessions on offense. The 7-footer leads the league with 112 offensive rebounds (5.3 per game).
For the season, Robinson is averaging 6.2 points and 10.3 rebounds. He is shooting 59% this season, having set the NBA record in 2019-20 when he hit 74.2% of his shots to break Wilt Chamberlain's mark of 72.7% in 1972-73.
