Mitchell Robinson, a player for the New York Knicks, is still recovering from a fracture in his foot that forced him to undergo surgery. And as Tom Thibodeau has recognized, his return to the slopes is marked as “day by day” and he will probably not be recovered to start the new regular season on October 26.
For his part, the pivot has acknowledged that he has worked very hard this summer to return as soon as possible. Currently he already performs exercises with the ball, although he can barely sprint on the court.
I’m doing a kind of light jog. It’s not super light, but it’s not super fast either. It’s right in the middle, “he pointed to the middle. CUT.
“I feel very good. I have already been able to do some exercises on the court and I feel good. I have spent a lot of time working my body. I was here most of the time, in New York. I would probably leave at the end of July. I’ve been working with the conditioning coach and his staff, ”he explained.
With the most likely absence of Robinson, the starting five spot would go to Nerlens Noel, who shone last year in his absence, and who this past summer has been renewed for 3 additional courses. Also important will be veteran Taj Gibson, who recently also extended his contract with the Knicks.
“I am taking Robinson’s recovery as day to day. What I like is that he has maximized his time, “acknowledged Tom Thibodeau.
Mitchell Robinson gambles his future in the Knicks and in the NBA, as he will become a restricted free agent. New Yorkers could offer you a renewal for 4 years and a maximum of $ 54 million; however, they will wait for how the season progresses to make you an offer.
Before getting injured, he played 31 official games (29 as a starter) with averages of 8.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 27.5 minutes on the floor.
