Stanley Robinson Hospitalized With Staph Infection

Bruce Maddox - Orlando Pinstriped Post

Former Orlando Magic draft pick Stanley Robinson was admitted to a hospital due to a staph infection, ending a promising start to his NBA D-League career and delaying a planned call-up from the Houston Rockets, reports Mike Anthony of the Hartford Courant. The Magic made Robinson, a 6-foot-8 forward from the University of Connecticut, the penultimate pick of this year's NBA Draft, but cut him in the preseason, preferring instead to keep veteran power forward/center Malik Allen. He's expected to miss the next two to three weeks.

In three games for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers, Robinson averaged 9.7 points and 2.7 boards in just 10.3 minutes per game, shooting 64.7 percent from the floor. During the Magic's preseason slate, Robinson posted per-game averages of 2 points and 2.4 rebounds in 8.2 minutes and shot 44.4 percent from the floor.

In waiving Robinson, the Magic renounced any claim to his services going forward, freeing him to sign with any club here or abroad. He elected to sign with Rio Grande Valley and, as Anthony says, was close to earning a spot with the Houston Rockets prior to the infection.
