Mitchell Robinson is undergoing ankle surgery this week and will be re-evaluated in 8-10 weeks, the New York Knicks announced Monday.

Robinson sustained an ankle injury during the first half of New York's loss to the Boston Celtics last Friday. The Knicks big man briefly left the game to receive an X-ray, which came back negative, according to New York Post's Mark W. Sanchez. Robinson returned to the contest but played only five minutes before sitting out the fourth quarter.

Robinson is averaging 6.2 points and 10.3 rebounds in 21 games for the Knicks this season.

New York hosts the Toronto Raptors on Monday night.
