Denver Nuggets guard Nate Robinson underwent surgery this afternoon to repair the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, Nuggets General Manager and Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Tim Connelly announced tonight.
“It’s always tough to see one of your players go down with an injury,” Connelly said. “Nate is known for his heart and determination, so I have no doubt he will work hard to get back on the court as soon as possible. He has the full support of our team and organization.”
The procedure was performed by team orthopedic surgeon Dr. Steve Traina at Midtown Surgical Center.
Robinson, signed by Denver as a free agent on July 26, 2013, averaged 10.4 points and 2.5 assists in 44 games with the Nuggets this season. NBA
The last two seasons have been extremely tough on the bodies of NBA players. Guys are consistently going out for months at a time or missing entire seasons. I’m really bummed to see this happen to Robinson after he played so well for my Bulls last last year. Hoping for a full, speedy recovery. – AL
