2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 36th overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Robinson is coming off an impressive rookie campaign. Despite playing in just 66 games and seeing only 20.6 minutes per contest, Robinson ranked fourth in the league in total blocks (161), blocking 2.4 per game and 4.3 per 36 minutes. He started 19 games, but really showed off his potential during the 10 contests in which he saw at least 30 minutes. In those games, he averaged 12.6 points on 73.1 percent shooting, 13.0 rebounds, 3.4 blocks and 1.4 steals. Heading into 2019-20, Robinson figures to be the Knicks' starting center, though the front office wasted no time finding plenty of reserve options. Foul trouble may keep Robinson from garnering 30 minutes on a consistent basis, but he's already established himself as an elite rim-protector and great rebounder. It remains to be seen how much he can improve his game, but even if he's simply given more run, he should be a lock for a mid-round, if not earlier, selection in most fantasy drafts.

Personal Bio

Mitchell Robinson was born in Pensacola in 1998. Robinson grew up idolizing current and former NBA players such as Anthony Davis and Kevin Garnett. Robinson spent his first years of high school at Pine Forest High School in Pensacola before transferring to Chalmette High School in Louisiana. As a junior for Chalmette in 2015-16, Robinson averaged 20.9 points and 13.6 rebounds per game. He then committed to play collegiate basketball at Western Kentucky University, before leaving school after two weeks to prepare for the NBA Draft. Robinson became the first recruited draft pick to not play for a college, professional, or postgraduate-high-school team for a full year before entering the NBA draft. Robinson came back to Chalmette last summer, holding a basketball camp for 175 local kids and reconnecting with former high school coach Butch Stockton. He remains active in the Chalmette community.

College/International Summary

The recruitment of Mitchell Robinson was a series of interesting events. The seven-footer from Pensacola, Florida originally committed to Texas A&M. He whetted appetites with 14 points in the 2017 McDonald's All-American game and 15 points in the Jordan Brand Classic. When Rick Stansbury left the Aggies as an assistant coach to become the head coach at Western Kentucky, Robinson followed. Before the season, Robinson left the team and was granted his release to transfer elsewhere. Robinson then took recruiting visits to LSU, Kansas, and New Orleans before returning to the Hilltoppers. Robinson left the team for good a month later and spent the 2017-18 winter preparing for the 2018 draft.

Quiet night against Wizards
CNew York Knicks
March 10, 2020
Robinson (illness) had 10 points (4-5 FG, 2-2 FT) and three rebounds in 25 minutes during Tuesday's 122-115 loss to the Wizards.
ANALYSIS
Robinson had been listed as questionable due to an illness but was able to give it a go. While he has scored in double figures in five straight appearances, Robinson has been somewhat inconsistent on the glass, hauling down four boards or less in two of his last three outings.

Past Season Summaries
2018

A second-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, Mitchell Robinson appeared in 66 games with the New York Knicks as a rookie. He was incredibly efficient with a 69.4 shooting percentage. The 7-foot center averaged 7.3 points, 6.4 rebounds, and 2.4 blocks. Those 2.4 blocks per game ranked second in the league behind only Myles Turner. He also played 20.6 minutes per game. Robinson recorded 11 double-doubles but just one of those came before February when he really started to heat up. However, he did block nine shots in one game on Nov. 11, tying the NBA season-high for 2018-19. In 11 games from Feb. 5 to March 3, he averaged 11.7 points, 9.2 rebounds, and 3.5 blocks on a tremendous 73.2 shooting percentage. He also recorded five double-doubles during that stretch. Robinson's best game of the season came on March 28 where he posted season highs in points (19) and rebounds (21).

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Despite pulling out of college and electing to prepare for an NBA career before putting anything on tape, Robinson has the measurables to draw the attention of any GM. He's a true seven-footer with a 7-foot-4 wingspan and has the athleticism to make plays that many other guys of his size can't. That peaked the Knicks interest enough to make him the 36th overall pick in the 2018 draft. Considering the lack of college competition, Robinson will likely come in a bit raw, but he does appear to be joining a team where playing time could be available right away. The Knicks are set to be without superstar Kristaps Porzingis for at least the first few months of the season, which means Robinson could open the year in a minor rotation role. He likely won't be on the radar in most Fantasy leagues to start his rookie season, but the Knicks could experiment with a larger workload later on once eliminated from the playoffs, so he can be someone to monitor closely on the waiver wire. It is worth it to note that Robinson played extremely well in the summer league and used his length to alter a ton of shots, finishing five games with averages of 13.0 points, 10.2 rebounds and 4.0 blocks.
