Mitchell Robinson was playing his fourth game back from a broken hand Saturday night. Now the Knicks center figures to be out for the foreseeable with another broken body part.
Robinson suffered a fracture in his right foot midway through the first quarter against the Bucks in Milwaukee after coming down awkwardly from a jump and eventually hobbling off the floor. He will be re-evaluated Sunday back in New York, the team said.
The 22-year-old Robinson had recently missed 15 games with a broken hand.
The Knicks already were without All-Star forward Julius Randle (contused right thigh). They still have Nerlens Noel and Taj Gibson as backup centers.
Robinson’s crushing injury came as the Knicks were leaning against making a big move for recently bought-out center Andre Drummond, The Post’s Marc Berman reported. It’s possible that Robinson’s injury could change the Knicks’ plans.
The Lakers have emerged as frontrunners for Drummond, according to ESPN.
