The Portland Trail Blazers defeated the Denver Nuggets on Tuesday by the score of 100-95. The win was the Blazers' fourth in a row to improve their record to 39-18, second in the Northwest Division. Forward Thomas Robinson strained his patella tendon during the second quarter of the game and is a game time decision tonight against the Nets.

As reported by Sean Meagher of The Orgeonian, the injury appeared to occur following a dunk in the second quarter. Robinson, who was limping after the play, tried to stay in the game but played only three minutes in the third quarter before exiting the game for good.

The Blazers' are already thin in the front court with LaMarcus Aldridge, Joel Freeland and Meyers Leonard out of the lineup with injuries. Should Robinson be unable to go, expect Victor Claver to see increased playing time backup up starters Dorell Wright and Nicolas Batum.

Robinson is in his second season out of Kansas.  He played for the Rockets and Kings last season, averaging 4.7 points in 70 games. In 49 games this season, Robinson is averaging 4.4 points and 4.1 rebounds, in 11.7 minutes per game.
