Nate Robinson played 28 minutes against the Wizards on Monday and had 16 points, three boards, two assists and four steals on 6-of-15 shooting.
It's the most minutes he's played since the home opener and Nate's playing time has been trending up all season. Ty Lawson did not play in this game, but Robinson has played at least 20 minutes in seven of his last eight games. He won't have a big upside since he won't see more than 24 minutes on a regular basis, but it's fair to expect him to score in the low teens while hitting one or two treys.

Nate Robinson played 26 minutes off the bench vs. Philly on Saturday, scoring 20 points on 6-of-14 FGs and 7-of-8 FTs, while going 1-of-6 from downtown.
Nate added two rebounds and three assists in 26 minutes, and Ty Lawson's absence with a strained hamstring gave him a few extra opportunities to lead the offense. He's been consistent for the past few weeks, scoring double-digit points in 10 of the past 11 games, and you could do far worse for a source of scoring, 3-pointers and some assists.

Nate Robinson played 24 minutes against the Celtics on Friday, scoring 11 points with four boards, one assist and one 3-pointer.
Robinson has warmed up a little over his last five, averaging 14.6 points, 2.6 assists and 1.2 triples in 22.6 minutes. Ty Lawson (hamstring) went down tonight, but his injury doesn't sound too serious. Robinson was gaining enough shots in limited minutes to be worth owning in deeper leagues, so he's worth a speculative add for owners that are dying for a scoring guard.

Nate Robinson has been fined $25,000 for his criticizing of league officials.
Nate said that "they hate me..." after a game in which he received a technical foul and his wallet will take a small hit. Robinson has been managing to put up some points and triples while his minutes have trended upward to 23.7 per game over his last three, so he's picking up some momentum as a low-upside player in some formats.

Nate Robinson played through his wrist injury on Wednesday, as promised, and had 14 points, two rebounds and two assists on 7-of-15 shooting.
Most of Robinson's shots came near the goal, as he was likely trying to protect his wrist. And while he played well tonight, he's probably not out of the woods with the injury, which required X-rays after Tuesday's game. Keep an eye on his status going forward.

Nate Robinson had X-rays taken of his right wrist after Tuesday's game, which came back negative, and he says he's going to play on Wednesday against Cleveland.
"I'm going to ice it and be ready to play," Robinson said. "I'm good. I'm going to be ready - tape it up and be ready to play." He aggravated the injury after being fouled and the fact it's to his shooting hand is mildly concerning. The Cavaliers backcourt is dreadful defensively against opposing guards, so if Robinson can play on Wednesday he has a chance to do some damage. And Ty Lawson could also be in for a big game against Kyrie Irving and the Cavs.

Nate Robinson scored 23 points with one rebound, five assists and five 3-pointers on 9-of-14 shooting against the Raptors on Sunday.
He's kind of rolling right now. Robinson has double-digit scoring games in seven consecutive games while making 2.3 triples per game over that span. He didn't play over 24 minutes in any of those games, but the stats are there. He's worth owning in standard leagues while he's hot.

Nate Robinson said Denver is hungry to win every night and won't overlook any team.
Ever the spark plug, Robinson is making sure Denver doesn't get too comfortable heading into a four-game swing against Toronto, Brooklyn, Cleveland, and Boston. "We're hungry. We're going out there; every team is like Thanksgiving dinner." With Lawson's status uncertain, Robinson could see an uptick in minutes.

Nate Robinson had 15 points, four assists, a steal and three 3-pointers on 5-of-11 shooting in just 22 minutes off the Nuggets bench Wednesday.
That's now five straight games in double figures for Lil' Him, and he's making the most of the minutes he gets off the bench. He's still not a must-own player, but is clearly working his way in that direction if he can keep cooking off the pine.

Nate Robinson shot 5-of-9 from the field for 17 points with one rebound, three assists, one steal and three 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Mavericks on Monday.
This is his fourth game in a row with double-digit points and he's starting to heat up a little. Robinson played just 18.3 minutes per game in that span, so it'll be tough for him to maintain some consistency with that amount of playing time. Lil' Him is only worth owning in deeper leagues for now.
