New York Knicks big man Mitchell Robinson’s absence will extend for a significant period, as he has sustained a stress injury to his left ankle, sidelining him for the next six to eight weeks.

Despite this setback, the Knicks currently lead the Indiana Pacers 1-0 in their second-round series. Additionally, New York has been dealing with season-ending injuries to key players like Julius Randle and Bojan Bogdanovic.
