111th: - Erie BayHawks - Dawan Robinson, Rhode Island

Robinson is another former training camp signee, joining the Clippers for a fortnight in 2006. Since then, he has toured Europe, leading the French division in scoring and averaging 13.1ppg in the ULEB Cup for Polish team Slask. He's spent the last two years in Italy; however, as this blurb indicates, it's not gone well.

Rhode Island guard Dawan Robinson has spent two years in Italy with incredibly little to show for it. He signed with Prima Veroli in Lega Due to begin the 2008-09 season, but managed only three games before breaking his hand. He returned 4 months later and played 7 more games, but broke his foot in the days before their season finale. Robinson stuck with Prima Veroli to begin this season, obviously hoping for a better run of things. However, in an eerie coincidence, he once again got injured after only three games, breaking his foot for the second time. Robinson never played again for Veroli; when he was ready to return to action this February, he joined Serie A team Umana Reyer as a replacement for the injured Kiwame Garris. And inevitably, he then broke his foot for the third time only two days after signing. That's three foot breaks in a year, and 13 total games in two seasons. Poor guy.


Injuries have been the story of Robinson's career - in fact, they've been the story of his career since 2004, when he had to redshirt his senior season. They are why he's gone from the cusp of Serie A to being drafted behind Marlon Jones. Robinson turns 29 in a couple of months and is here to put his career back together; when healthy, he is an athletic slashing high scoring 6'2 guard, who can be a bit wild and who is no point guard, and who doesn't shoot jumpshots well, but who will get after it defensively. Or at least, he was all those things, before the injuries. We'll just have to see where he's at now.
