Knicks rookie Mitchell Robinson had to be helped off the court after spraining his right ankle during the second half of Wednesday night's preseason game against the Nets. He did not return.
The injury happened when Robinson stepped on Rodions Kurucs' foot.
After the game, Robinson called the injury "just a little tweak," according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News, with head coach David Fizdale saying "I don't think it's terribly bad, but I think he's got a pretty good sprain."
Robinson had two points, two rebounds, and two blocks in 10 minutes before suffering the injury.

Depending on the severity of the injury, the athletic 7-foot-1 center has a great chance to make the Opening Day roster this season with Enes Kanter the only sure-fire pick at the position. The Knicks are also looking for a way to get rid of Joakim Noah's contract.
