Knicks center Mitchell Robinson entered health and safety protocols, the team announced on Saturday.

Robinson joins Julius Randle, Nerlens Noel, Wayne Selden, and Jericho Sims in health and safety protocols.

The 23-year-old expressed his frustration with being held out of future games, tweeting, "I don’t even do anything but gym and play Fortnite."

Through 33 games (25 starts) this season, Robinson is averaging 7.5 points, 8.1 rebounds, and 1.7 blocks per game over 24.5 minutes of action. The big man is shooting a career-high 76.5 percent from the field this season, which would top his previous best of 74.2 percent during the 2019-20 season. He's averaged 8.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 2.0 blocks per game over 191 games (80 starts) in four seasons with the Knicks.

With Robinson, Randle, Noel, and Sims all out for Sunday's game against the Toronto Raptors, Taj Gibson and Obi Toppin will be the team's only big men unless they sign a new player.

Additionally, Kemba Walker will miss his second straight game with a sore left knee. Since returning to the rotation on Dec. 18, Walker is averaging 19.3 points per game thanks to a 44-point performance against the Washington Wizards on Dec. 23. He only played about 20 minutes on Dec. 29 against the Detroit Pistons, scoring just two points.

Evan Fournier (sore right ankle) is questionable to play against the Raptors.
