Knicks’ Mitchell Robinson’s frustration spills over onto social media

The New York Knicks might have taken down the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday evening, but they once again lost one of their premium players. Center Mitchell Robinson, who just found his way back from a fractured hand, suffered a fractured foot against Milwaukee, which will likely keep him out for the next few weeks, if not months.

Robinson had waited weeks to come back from his hand issue, showing excitement and new energy when on the floor. In the win, Robinson only played six minutes before going down, scoring two points and recording a steal. The Knicks managed to walk away with a 102-96 victory, mainly thanks to Milwaukee featuring a majority of backups.

Robinson expressed his dejection following the game, specifically stating that he’s taken a beating all season long.

Mitch went on to complain about the video, watching it over and over to see exactly what happened with his foot. This seems to be just bad luck for a player that has been relatively healthy leading up to the 2020-21 season.

On the season, Robinson is averaging 8.3 points, 1.1 steals, 1.5 blocks, and 8.1 rebounds over 27.5 minutes per game. With the loss of Robinson, the Knicks might have to consider former Cleveland Cavaliers center Andre Drummond more realistically.

The Cavaliers recently bought out Drummond, who is a free agent and looking to sign with a new team. While he would only count the minimum for New York, they might like to sign him to a long-term deal if he chooses to come to the Mecca.

With the loss of Robinson, Drummond would be a solid addition, especially with his offensive prowess and ability in the paint. So far this season, Drummond is averaging 17.5 points, 13.5 rebounds, and 1.2 blocks. Head coach Tom Thibodeau was worried about a disruption in chemistry, but with Robinson expected to be out for quite some time, Drummond makes perfect sense.
