Robinson's role expanded as the season progressed, as she began getting more minutes in place of Lindsay Whalen. Whalen has announced her retirement and Sunday's game against the Washington Mystics at Target Center is Whalen's final regular-season home game.

Robinson, a three-time WNBA All-Star (2013, 2014, 2015) played in 28 games and started in two of those. She averaged 6.5 points on 44.5 percent shooting, 1.8 rebounds and 3.3 assists. Arguably the league's fastest player, her ability to push the offense and control pace was a positive in key moments for the Lynx.

She was a first-round draft pick in 2011 by the San Antonio Stars and played last season in Phoenix.
