Thomas Robinson has been getting extra run with the rash of Blazers injuries up front — including All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge — but now he is joining their ranks.

Robinson suffered a left patella strain during the first half of Portland’s win in Denver Tuesday night, reports Chris Haynes at He is listed as is day-to-day. He is officially a game-time decision for when the Blazers take on the Nets Wednesday night.

While no injury is good there were fears this could have been worse after the game, so the strain is something the Blazers will take.

Announcement: Pro Basketball Talk’s partner FanDuel is hosting a one-day $120,000 Fantasy Basketball league for Wednesday night’s games. It’s $25 to join and first prize is $13,000. Starts at 7pm ET on Wednesday. Here’s the FanDuel link.

But they are short handed. Aldridge (groin), Joel Freeland (MCL) and Meyers Leonard (ankle) are all part of Portland’s front line rotation already out. That leaves Robin Lopez and a lot of going small for Portland for a little while.

    Either you received bad info or interpreted it improperly. The patella (knee cap) is a bone and you can’t strain a bone. He may have strained his patellar tendon, that would make sense.

      I know it’s not fashionable to not bash PBT but if you click on the link provided you’ll see the injury reported is the same as what PBT wrote

      He left out a word: tendon. The injury is a strain of the patella tendon.

    On the bright side, we’re facing the Nyets tonight. Maybe a 5-guard line-up can run the geezers into the ground.
