Knicks’ Robinson has thumb surgery, out at least 3 weeks

NEW YORK (AP) — New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson will miss at least three weeks after having surgery to repair a fractured right thumb. The Knicks said Robinson had the procedure Thursday at the Hospital for Special Surgery, a day after he was injured in a 116-105 loss to Washington. Robinson played just nine minutes in the game before leaving with what the Knicks said was a sprain. But they revealed it was a fracture when announcing that he had undergone the surgery and would be re-evaluated in three weeks. Isaiah Hartenstein and Jericho Sims are the other centers behind the 7-foot Robinson, who is averaging 7.2 points and 8.9 rebounds.
