COREY ROBINSON: Knicks starting center Mitchell Robinson returned to the lineup on February 24 after a month long absence due to a broken right thumb. There was no minutes restriction of any kind, and the athletic big man finished New York's 115 to 109 win over the Wizards with 10 points, 12 rebounds, one steal, and one block shot in 28 minutes shooting 5 for 6 from the field.

Jalen Brunson and Julius Randle have received most of the praise for the Knicks' play this season, and rightfully so. But Robinson spent most of the season as the team's top ranked fantasy player before going down with a thumb injury. His return means there's no longer room in the rotation for Jerricho Sims who did not play against the Wizards. Isaiah Hartenstein was the lone backup playing 20 minutes and finishing the win with four points, 10 rebounds, and two steals.
