CHICAGO (AP) _ Glenn Robinson may sit out the entire season because of an ankle injury, Philadelphia 76ers coach Jim O'Brien said Friday.

Robinson, earning more than $12 million in the final year of his contract, has been on the injured list all season with left ankle tendinitis and a sore elbow.

``I don't anticipate seeing him at all,'' O'Brien said. ``He said he is incapable of playing. My understanding is that his ankles are incapable of carrying him on the court.''

Earlier this season, Robinson was upset that Philadelphia didn't trade him. He averaged 16.6 points in his first season in Philadelphia last year _ down from his career average of 20.8. He lost his starting spot at small forward during training camp to rookie first-round pick Andre Iguodala.
