The Knicks didn’t hold media availability on Thanksgiving, but coach Tim Thibodeau said on Wednesday that Robinson was “making progress” and going through “all the protocols” since he was elbowed in the nose by Houston’s Jae’Sean Tate in Saturday night’s home win over the Rockets. “If he gets cleared, he’ll be a go,” Thibodeau said on Wednesday when asked about Robinson, who has appeared in 15 of the Knicks’ 18 games after foot surgery cut his previous season short in March. “There’s a progression to it, so he’s going through each phase, and there’s still more for him to go through before he’s cleared.”

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.”

One game after baiting Washington’s Markieff Morris into an ejection, Knicks rookie center Mitchell Robinson was forced to leave early, suffering a sprained right ankle early in the fourth quarter of the Knicks’ 107-102 victory over the Nets at Barclays Center on Wednesday. … Knicks coach David Fizdale said the injury “is not terribly bad, but I think he got a pretty good sprain.’’ Robinson differed. “It’s good — just a little tweak,’’ Robinson said. “I’m definitely going to be playing Friday. It ain’t nothing serious at all. I sprained this one before in summer league.”

“He hasn’t changed much, to be honest,” Miller told DNVR about Jokic. “The game’s still slow for him. He still makes everyone around him better, and he goes and gets what he wants. He’s just an impossible guard. He’s a similar player to the guy he was back then. But now he’s just in better shape. He was always so skilled. Unbelievable size. Playmaking. Scorer. Touch has always been great. Just a great basketball player.”
