Pacers F Robinson to miss 3-4 months following surgery

Oct 14, 2017 - 12:45 AM Indiana Pacers forward Glenn Robinson III underwent successful ankle surgery Friday and is expected to return in three to four months.

Robinson underwent the procedure to repair medial and lateral ligaments in his left ankle.

The 23-year-old was injured driving to the basket during a scrimmage in practice on Sept. 29.

The 6-foot-6, 222-pound Robinson, the son of former NBA star Glenn Robinson, averaged a career-high 6.1 points and 3.6 rebounds in 69 games (27 starts) last season. The 2017 NBA slam dunk contest champion shot 39.2 percent on 3-pointers.

Robinson was a second-round draft pick of the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2014 after leaving Michigan following his sophomore season. In 149 regular-season games for the Timberwolves, Philadelphia 76ers and Pacers, Robinson has averaged 4.4 points on 44.8 percent shooting.
