Portland Trail Blazers forward Thomas Robinson — you may remember him as the guy who recently obliterated a dunk attempt by Corey Brewer — suffered a left patella strain during the first half of Tuesday’s game against the Denver Nuggets.

Robinson played only three minutes in the second half following the injury and is listed as day-to-day by the team.

The 22-year-old discussed the injury with CSNNW.com:

“I tried to go back in there but I couldn’t. It was something I’ve never experienced before on this knee.

I’m worried. I’m just going to rest and put some ice on it and get some rest and hopefully I’ll be able to go tomorrow.”

The Blazers could certainly use Robinson back soon. LaMarcus Aldridge, Joel Freedland, and Meyers Leonard are all out with various ailments, so the Blazers will have to rely on Robin Lopez and a small lineup for a bit.
