On Wednesday evening, the New York Knicks will host the Indiana Pacers for Game 2 of their second-round playoff series.

For the game, the Knicks will be without Mitchell Robinson, and it’s now been announced that he will likely miss the remainder of the NBA playoffs.

Via New York Knicks PR: “Mitchell Robinson sustained a stress injury to his left ankle and will be re-evaluated in 6-8 weeks.”

Based on the announcement, the earliest that Robinson would be re-evaluated would be Game 5 of the NBA Finals.

Robinson played 31 regular season games with averages of 5.6 points, 8.5 rebounds, 1.2 steals and 1.1 blocks per contest while shooting 57.5% from the field.

He is the team’s best rim protector (and one of their top defenders).

Robinson had two points, two rebounds and one assist while shooting 1/1 from the field in 12 minutes of playing time.

He played a limited role in six of the Knicks’ first seven playoff games.

The Knicks are the second seed in the Eastern Conference with a 50-32 record.
