Mitchell Robinson is close to returning to the New York Knicks' lineup, according to Tom Thibodeau.

"Mitchell is moving quite well. He's cleared for contact and all that. He's going through practices and so just needs a little more time," said Thibodeau.

The Knicks coach added that Robinson is set to return before OG Anunoby and Julius Randle.

Robinson has not appeared in a game since December 8.

Thibodeau also said Randle has yet to be cleared for live contact.

"He's feeling better, so that's a good sign. He's ramped it up some. We'll see where it goes," said Thibodeau.
