The former Wolverines' star shared great news on Twitter.

Today was a big day for Glenn Robinson III. The former Michigan basketball star is inching closer to his return to the NBA.

Robinson, who starred for the Wolverines from 2012-14, has been out since late September with an ankle injury. The former second-round pick underwent surgery on the ankle in October and has been recovering since.

This afternoon, he returned to the court. Robinson played for the Pacers' G-League team, the Fort- Wayne Mad Ants.

Robinson, the No. 40 overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, scored 12 points on 5-of-14 shooting (1-of-4 from three-point range). He added 3 assists, 2 rebounds, 1 steal and 1 turnover in 27 minutes.

"Been through a lot these past 3 months, first game in 8 months...words can’t describe how great it felt to be back on the court! God’s timing is never off," he wrote.

It's unclear at this point how long Robinson will be with the Mad Ants. Whenever he does return to Indiana, it'll be a big help, as the team lacks wing depth.

Pacers star Victor Oladipo is excited. "Happy for my bro," he says.

The Pacers are currently right in the middle of the Eastern Conference playoff race. Indiana is 29-23 and have seven games before the All-Star Break.
