According to a Team USA source, Robinson suffered a knee injury and missed the first two days of practice that began with an informal workout Sunday. He returned for two days but re-injured the knee Wednesday. Robinson is expected to miss Thursday’s set of scrimmages and practice. A member of the Knicks training staff is in Vegas with Robinson. A Team USA official did not know the specifics of the knee injury. The Vegas scrimmages end Friday.

The 14-man USA Basketball Select Team includes Jarrett Allen (Brooklyn Nets); Marvin Bagley III (Sacramento Kings); Mikal Bridges (Phoenix Suns); Jalen Brunson (Dallas Mavericks); John Collins (Atlanta Hawks); Pat Connaughton (Milwaukee Bucks); Craig; De’Aaron Fox (Sacramento Kings); Joe Harris (Brooklyn Nets); Jonathan Isaac (Orlando Magic); Jaren Jackson Jr. (Memphis Grizzlies); Mitchell Robinson (New York Knicks); Derrick White (San Antonio Spurs); and Trae Young (Atlanta Hawks).

But he’s got one idea in mind on how he’ll expand his game in 2019-20. “Next year I’m shooting 3s,” Robinson said. “I can shoot them. I shot them in high school. They ain’t that much farther. I’m going to continue to work on them.” Robinson took about 150 3-pointers as a senior at Chalmette High, his coach Butch Stockton said, and he hit them at a 38 percent rate. That has yet to translate to the NBA, though Robinson likes to conclude his pregame workouts by taking 3s and shoots them occasionally after practice.
Also, Team USA could graduate players from its “select” team (think the USA junior varsity), where rising stars like Trae Young, De’Aaron Fox, Joe Harris, Mitchell Robinson, and Jarrett Allen reside. According to The Athletic’s Shams Charania, No. 1 overall pick Zion Williamson has withdrawn from the select team. “We are blessed with a lot of talent, a lot of talent in the NBA,” Jerry Colangelo, managing director for Team USA, told The Athletic. “There is no panic. It may be more challenging, but we will be able to field a very competitive team. We’ve had players call us who want to be on our list.”
