Player News
  • Covington has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Hawks due to a right knee injury, Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News reports. Covington underwent an MRI on his right knee after dealing with some swelling, but the team doesn't have any official update on the swingman's status other than he will not play Wednesday night. Justin Anderson will start at small forward and is expected to see some extended minutes on the wing in Covington's absence against the Hawks.

  • Covington scored 21 points (9-15 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and added 13 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and one assist in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 106-101 win over the Nets. For the third time in March, Covington scored at least 21 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. His well-rounded production Tuesday is a fitting demonstration of the kinds of numbers he has been putting up since the All-Star break, averaging 16.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 2.3 threes, 1.9 steals, 1.4 assists and 1.4 blocks. This isn't the first time Covington has shown himself capable of across the board production, but it is probably the first time the fourth-year player has done it this well for this long.

  • Covington recorded 24 points (9-22 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 13 rebounds, four steals and two blocks across 45 minutes in Monday's 112-109 overtime loss to the Magic. Covington's big game Monday was his best since a March 9 game where he posted an identical 24 point, 13 rebound game against the Trail Blazers. The rangy small forward has amplified his production in the second half of the season-- he's averaging 16.4 points and shooting nearly 40 percent on almost seven attempts from three-point distance per game since the beginning of February. Those scoring numbers combined with the ability he displayed Monday to fill up defensive stat categories makes Covington a quality fantasy starter as the season winds down.

  • Covington tallied 18 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 7-8 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and one block across 26 minutes in Friday's 116-74 win over the Mavs. Although Covington got into more of a rhythm with his shot Friday night, he still took just eight field goal attempts, matching his lowest number since the start of February. The knee injury doesn't seem to be affecting his shot anymore as he shot 50 percent from three, but his attacking mentality on offense has faded, capping his upside slightly until he rediscovers the aggression he played with on offense before the one game hiatus.

  • Covington (knee) returned from a one-game absence to tally seven points (1-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, two steals and one block across 32 minutes during a 106-104 loss to the Warriors on Tuesday. Covington struggled mightily with his shot in the return, but was still able to impact the game in other ways. He was less aggressive offensively than he has been in awhile, as the eight field goal attempts marked his lowest number since Jan. 27. That likely had to do with the fact that the shot wasn't falling. Expect to him to play better on the offensive end against the Mavericks on Friday.
