PITTSBURGH (AP) - Pittsburgh senior forward Nasir Robinson will undergo surgery to repair torn meniscus in his right knee Friday. He is expected to miss three weeks.

The procedure is the second on Robinson’s knee in as many years. He missed the first three games of the 2010-11 season after injuring the knee last fall.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pound Robinson averaged 9.4 points and 4.9 rebounds in 31 games last year for the Panthers.

Coach Jamie Dixon said several players, including sophomores Lamar Patterson and J.J. Moore, will get a chance to practice in Robinson’s place until his return.

Dixon added he believes Robinson will be back in plenty of time for Pitt’s season-opener on Nov. 11 against Albany.
