UPDATE – Pacers fans will have to wait another month or two than originally expected to see Glenn Robinson III on the court.

The team announced via Twitter that he is expected to return in approximately three to four months, they previously stated he was expected to return in 8 weeks.

The surgery was performed by the Pacers’ medical team at the Orthopedic Indiana Hospital.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Pacers forward Glenn Robinson III is out 8 weeks after he suffered a severely sprained left ankle.

He reportedly went down with the injury during Friday’s training camp practice.

Robinson averaged 6.1 points and 3.6 rebounds last season, in starting 27 games.

The Indiana native wasn’t expected to start at small forward with the new addition of Bojan Bogdanovic, but looks to play a key role off the bench.

Take a look at footage from practice Saturday, where the entire team came over to Robinson after practice because he wasn’t able to make it to center court.

Glenn couldn’t walk to center court to break down practice, so the team came to him. #Togetherness
