Update: Jeff Goodman of reports that Robinson is expected to miss 7 to 10 days.

After sustaining a right knee injury in the final seconds of Friday night’s Hoosier Hysteria scrimmage, Stanford Robinson is “out indefinitely.”

Indiana sent out a release late Saturday night updating Robinson’s situation, saying that he will begin treatment and daily observation.

“Hopefully everything will be good there,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said after Hoosier Hysteria. “We don’t need any more guys missing time that are gonna play.”

Robinson went down after a collision in the paint with 4.6 seconds remaining in the scrimmage. He limped off the court with help from IU team doctor Steve Ahlfeld.

Below is the entire press release:

Bloomington, Indiana – Freshman Stanford Robinson, who left Friday night’s Hoosier Hysteria scrimmage after injuring his right knee, is beginning treatment, daily evaluation and will be out indefinitely. He participated in team activities with the Varsity Club prior to this afternoon’s football game against Penn State and was dressed at practice.

“Stanford is a very unique, unorthodox type of player”, said Coach Tom Crean at his State of the Hoosiers speech Wednesday evening. “He can do a lot of different things. He can handle the ball. He is as good of a downhill player as we have right now outside of Yogi when it comes to playing the game and going straight line straight downhill.”

The Hoosiers open the exhibition season in three weeks against Southern Indiana, October 26 at 7 p.m. in Assembly Hall.

    Ok. I guess that makes sense. I thought maybe they were referring to his haircut or something.

    Teague? LOL! Big difference maker on his team. Just 2 Indiana kids, oh I guess that because you want to over look Perea, Hollowell, Davis, Hartman, Etherington, Elston, and Hulls. All of which were on the Indiana all-star team as Seniors in High School.

    Here is the reality of the situation. Over the last 2 seasons TC recruited 10 players to fit 13 scholarships. Add in that Etherington got a injury red shirt for last season, and we only have two scholarships that are scheduled to be opened up over the next two seasons. So if we fill those this year, and no one transfers or leaves for the NBA, there will be 0 scholarships to offer for 2015. This is the type of information that every coach in the country can use against the Hoosier program because it screams that there will be competition for every minute that already has college skill development and experience for any recruit to compete with.

    I’ve been a fan for many years….loved RMK and his mental toughness but the speed of the game has changed since his days, the three point was brought in, the shot clock decreased, the foul lane under the basket, etc…. so the days of waiting for the best possible shot of opportunity is not the same.
    I hate L’ville but look at their style of play, run and gun. CTC under Izzo similar format. CTC style of basketball will automatically set up the stage for more of these types of injuries due to running, cutting, drive, esp heavy D during game time and practice?
    One thing that is not discussed, that I’ve heard many complaints about is rotation. CTC does rotate too much, even for me, but it does give a chance for rest and less chance for injuries. I’m sure you’re going to see even more rotation this year because we are deep at our 3 and 4’s. This is just his style of bb and will reflect such. You can’t have it both ways. The running Hoosiers, great on D and then expect to slow the game down so we don’t have the injuries.
    I’m not sure how he is running practices this year now that he has HIS team that he has finally built, but I’m sure it is very up tempo. I’ve been to a practice each of the last three years and I don’t see anything out of the ordinary that would put players at any higher risk than what I’ve seen previously. I will have another chance to attend a practice and will take notice but each practice is different each day. Once I see how he is running the guys that will spill back over to you ITH’ers.
    But you can’t continue to blame CTC for the injuries or his style of play/practice. This is crazy to say that CTC is running these guys too hard….VO didn’t have a problem, nor Zeller but both excelled to their best potential. You can’t have it both ways. To be the best, you have to give it 100% 24/7. And don’t we want to be the best?

    Add to that…what is it that each top recruit wants?
    PT. Do you not think that these recruits see themselves playing a huge amount of PT at IU now that we just brought in the #4 recruiting class. It could be 2 years or more before they see PT depending on the development and potential of our current team. IU is set at every position except the 1? WE should be pleased that we are in the running for the top 50 kids in the nation, not just Indiana. I would love to get the top 5 from Indiana every year but that is just not going to happen when you lose 5 and replenish. Hopefully we will get to the days where we have a rotation of just 2 or 3 a year on our scholly situation but right now that does not allow such.

    UK fans feast on turds. You can ignore them.

    people got hurt in Knights practices too…read “A Season on the Brink”

    Don’t pay any attention to them. They absolutely have no clue what they are trying to say.

  • hoosier1158

    It’s a scrimmage, sometimes the players may not look like they are in sync, not quite yet anyways. They should do pretty well once the injuries are healed up. They are replacing a bunch of good players.

    They actually do sound a lot like collision related injuries. I think that might be a side effect of a young team and a team learning to play with and against each other everyday. Guys trying to earn playing time, showing what they can do. Mo Creek and Elston seemed perpetually injured, so some guys may just never become healthy. But all these things sound small and are done in a few weeks at most. I’m sure they will all be healthy when the season comes.

    You have an issue with two top ten recruiting classes in a row? Half the roster is filled with Indiana kids.

    There was no scholarship for Harris and he wanted to start right away, McGary wasn’t all that interested

  • BC

    Calipari quote? Really? That guy can’t win half the time in a football conference with 10 five star recruits on his squad every year. Give me a break. Last year’s loss has been addressed ad nasusem. Now it was due to them being exhausted? That’s a new one.

    Why doesn’t Crean just act the way I think he should? Doesn’t he know that is the key to winning? Man is this frustrating!

    Michigan needs to stop practicing so hard, don’t they know this isn’t football.

    I don’t think I could care any less.

    Correct assessment. You will notice a lot of the injuries seem to be collision injuries. If you look at the size of Vonleh and Perea, you can see why. We are a driving team, not a shooting team. This is not Wisconsin, thank God. That style is the reason we were able to go into Wisconsin and take their top basketball recruit.
