Pacers’ Robinson III out 3-4 months

Pacers forward Glenn Robinson III is out 3-4 months after ankle surgery.

Indiana Pacers small forward Glenn Robinson III underwent ankle surgery on Friday and will miss 3-4 months, the team announced.

Robinson suffered the injury during a scrimmage at practice on the first day of Pacers training camp.

Robinson, 23, averaged a career-high 6.1 points and 3.6 rebounds in 20 minutes per game last season, shooting 46.7 percent from the field and 39 percent on 3-pointers.

The Pacers are counting on Robinson, Victor Oladipo and Myles Turner to jump start their rebuild and be the cornerstones of the franchise now that the Paul George era is over.
