New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson sustained a fractured right foot during the first quarter of Saturday’s road game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
Robinson was injured while defending Milwaukee center Brook Lopez inside the 3-point line with about 6 1/2 minutes left in the first quarter. The Knicks said he will be re-evaluated on Sunday.
After getting injured, Robinson fell to the floor and hobbled back to the locker room. He was unable to put any weight on the foot.
It is Robinson’s second major injury this season. He missed 15 games from Feb. 13-March 18 with a broken right hand. The Knicks posted a 9-6 record in those games.
Robinson, 22, returned on Sunday against the Philadelphia 76ers and was inserted into the starting lineup on Thursday against the Washington Wizards.
In his third season, Robinson entered Saturday averaging 8.5 points, 8.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks on 65.1 percent shooting.
Last season, he averaged 9.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, 2.0 blocks. He shot a league-leading 74.2 percent from the field.
