As if the 76ers aren’t having enough problems with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons out with injuries, the team had to put out another fire concerning comments by Glenn Robinson III.
Acquired at the trade deadline Feb. 6 from Golden State, Robinson told Basketball Insiders that his role on the Sixers wasn’t explained to him.
Before the game Thursday, he said his comments were “a little blown out of proportion.”
When asked what intended to say, Robinson replied, “But I did say that; I just want to figure out what my role is to help this team.”
Robinson acknowledged that things are a work in progress. In his seven games, Robinson is 0-for-9 from beyond the arc. With Golden State, he was 68-for-170.
Robinson was in the starting lineup against the Knicks, his third start with the Sixers.
