Nate Robinson sidelined after surgery

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma City Thunder guard Nate Robinson will miss four to six weeks after undergoing arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

Robinson first experienced discomfort in the knee after practice Monday, Thunder general manager Sam Presti said Friday.

The Thunder's medical team and Robinson decided surgery was the best option "to resolve the issue with certainty," Presti said.

Oklahoma City acquired the 5-foot-9 Robinson in a Feb. 24 trade with the Boston Celtics. Robinson made his debut for the Thunder Wednesday, scoring six points in eight minutes.
