After suffering a sprained ankle in a collision with New York Knicks centre Mitchell Robinson Monday night, Toronto Raptors All-Star guard Kyle Lowry made it clear that he was not too pleased with the rookie's role in the incident .

"I watched the clip, think it was a little bit dirty - he grabbed me, pulled me down, but he's a young kid so I don't know if he did it on purpose or not, but I think he'll learn his lesson next time and [he'll] be a little bit more careful."

Robinson, who was not available for comment postgame , took to Twitter to respond to Lowry's allegations that it was a dirty play, providing an apology along with a statement that it was unintentional:

The 20-year-old would later tweet out a quote graphic that contained an image of the play in question

Robinson, who was selected 36th overall in the 2018 NBA Draft, is averaging 6.5 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.4 blocks through the first 55 games of his first season. The Knicks and Raptors square off one final time this season on March 28, 2019.
