Pitt F Nasir Robinson has knee surgery
Pittsburgh junior forward Nasir Robinson had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his right knee and is expected to be sidelined up to six weeks.
The 6-foot-5 Robinson started all 34 games last season, averaging 6.6 points and 5.6 rebounds as Pitt reached the second round of the NCAA tournament. His best game was a 26-point, 11-rebound effort against Louisville on Jan. 16.
During his two-season career, Robinson had not missed a game to injury. The surgery was performed Wednesday.
Pitt, the Big East Conference preseason favorite, opens its season Nov. 8 against Rhode Island. Robinson could miss as many as 10 games if he is out for six weeks.
