Arkansas freshman Khalen “K.K.” Robinson will miss the remainder of the season after having surgery Sunday to repair a bone fracture in his right foot.
Robinson, a Little Rock native, played in each of the first 11 games before missing the Georgia game Saturday. He scored 29 points (2.6 avg.) and had 11 assists this season.
Against Tennessee on Wednesday night, Robinson played in the first half but it got too difficult by halftime and he didn’t come back out.
“KK came to me at halftime and said he couldn’t go,” Eric Musselman said after the Vols’ game. “His foot was bothering him. Obviously our training staff will get with him. He said it’s been bothering him a little bit since the Red-white game.”
Robinson was in Arkansas’ ninth-ranked 2020 recruiting class that included four in-state prospects. Robinson was the No. 10 point guard in the nation.
Robinson appeared in 11 games for the Razorbacks, averaging 8.4 minutes per game. He was scoring 2.6 points per game on 9-of-21 shooting from the field, 5-of-12 from beyond the arc and 6-of-8 from the free-throw line.
Robinson pulled down 10 rebounds and recorded three steals on the year and recorded 11 assists to just six turnovers for the Hogs.
