LAS VEGAS – Just when the Portland Trail Blazers were starting to find their rhythm at summer league, an injury to Thomas Robinson, who has been one of the team’s most consistent performers through three games in Las Vegas, will sideline the 6-9 forward for the remainder of the schedule.

According to the team, Robinson suffered a tear in the ligament of his right thumb in the third quarter of Portland’s 91-76 victory versus the Atlanta Hawks Tuesday afternoon at COX Pavilion.

“I tried to break my fall and it didn’t break,” said Robinson of the injury. “It went the other way.”

Robinson repeated multiple times after that game that he was “good” and “fine” when asked about his status for Portland’s remaining games in Las Vegas, though apparently the prognosis changed on further examination. There was no information given about the severity of the injury or whether it will require surgery to repair.
