After double-digit losses in back-to-back games, the bottom is really starting to fall out for the New York Knicks.
The Knicks announced Monday that starting center Mitchell Robinson is set to undergo surgery on his left ankle this week. As a result, Robinson will miss extended time and will be re-evaluated in eight to 10 weeks.
Losing the seven-footer for two months or more stinks. He is the Knicks’ best rebounder and interior defender. Robinson also has some strong pick-and-roll chemistry with primary ball-handlers Jalen Brunson and RJ Barrett.
