Nuggets guard Nate Robinson plans to return to team next season
Robinson is out for the season after tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in January.
Before getting hurt, Robinson averaged 10.4 points in 19 minutes a game primarily off the bench and shot nearly 38 percent from beyond the arc.
Robinson, 29, signed a two-year deal with the Nuggets last offseason and is scheduled to make $2.1 million next season.
"Things happen," Robinson said to the Denver Post. "God always has a plan for everybody. So, it's just another obstacle that I've got to hop over and keep pushing. But for me, it's going push me to continue to work hard. You can't take your game for granted. It just shows your character. It shows how hard and how bad you really want it. I'm a player that, I love this game. I'm going to come back strong and ready to play."MAHONEY: Court Vision: NBA teams are sleeping to win, Trevor Booker talks cereal
