76ers activate Robinson from injured list
Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – The Philadelphia 76ers activated forward
Glenn Robinson from the injured list Wednesday and placed rookie guard Willie
Green on the IL.
Robinson has missed 18 of Philadelphia’s first 22 games this season. He was
suspended by the league for the initial three contests of the campaign and
also sat out 15 games because of a sprained left ankle.
Robinson, who was placed on the injured list November 25, has averaged 15.5

Philadelphia from Atlanta on July 23, 2003 as a part of a four-team trade that
also involved New York and Minnesota.
Green missed the last three contests with a sprained right thumb. He suffered

averaging only 1.9 points-per-game, is expected to be sidelined until at least
