Denver’s Nate Robinson had surgery to repair his torn ACL in his left knee on Friday and he is done for the season, the team reported Friday.

“It’s always tough to see one of your players go down with an injury,” Nuggets General Manager Tim Connelly said in a released statement. “Nate is known for his heart and determination, so I have no doubt he will work hard to get back on the court as soon as possible. He has the full support of our team and organization.”

Robinson has been a key piece to the Nuggets offense averaging 10.4 points and 2.5 assists per game adding his explosive energy and hot shooting.  It’s a big loss for the team.
