The improvement of Mitchell Robinson’s injuries prepares the possible return of the Knicks against the Raptors

New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson is on the verge of returning from ankle surgery he suffered in December after being upgraded to questionable on the team’s injury report ahead of Wednesday night’s game against the Toronto Raptors.

Robinson, who has been out since Dec. 8 due to surgery on his left ankle, was initially said to be out for the remainder of the 2023-24 season when his injury occurred. However, Robinson remained proactive in trying to return this season.

Now, the Knicks will get back one of the league’s best rebounders right before what they hope is a deep postseason run, as Wojnarowski reports that Robinson is expected to play Wednesday night against Toronto.

Before suffering an ankle injury, Robinson averaged 6.2 points, 10.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocks in 21 total games. His 5.3 offensive rebounds per game average would lead the league right now.

As a team, the Knicks currently rank fifth in total rebounds and second in offensive rebounds. With Robinson back in the fold, the Knicks will only be a stronger team on the inside, setting them up for success as the regular season ends.
