NBA rumors: Mitchell Robinson to miss significant time?

The team’s starting center will be reevaluated Saturday back in New York, but it appears as if he will miss some time. “It was probably the best half of the year for him. We know how important he is to the team,” coach Tom Thibodeau said. “Any time someone gets hurt, you certainly feel for him. He’s got a fracture, so we don’t how long he’ll be out. He’ll be examined further [Saturday] and then we’ll have more information.”
