New York Knicks center Mitchell Robinson suffered a broken right foot on Saturday. The injury happened during the first quarter against the Milwaukee Bucks.

This is a tough loss for the Knicks. Robinson suffers another injury after returning from a broken right wrist. In his first game back from the broken wrist, he suffered a sprained left knee.

With Robinson sidelined, the Knicks will have to give more playing time to Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson. Noel is expected to receive the starting time minutes.

Robinson will be sidelined for at least a month. Or possibly longer.

By the time he does return, their season could be near completion. The Knicks end their regular season on March 16th against the Boston Celtics.

The 22-year-old Florida native was a second-round draft pick by the Knicks in the 2018 NBA Draft. He is in his third season.

The 28 games are a career-high for the young Robinson. Before this season, he made 19 starts as a rookie during the 2018-19 season.
