    76ers' Robert Covington: Scoreless in 19 minutes Friday

    Covington went scoreless (0-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt), grabbing four rebounds and recording one block in 19 minutes during the 76ers' 106-94 loss to the Wizards on Friday. Covington appeared to be playing through some slight pain in his arm/wrist on Friday, but it's possible it was merely an off night. Covington is 3-for-14 in 40 minutes combined during the last two games, but as long as he is alright health-wise, he figures to continue earning plentiful minutes most nights on a 76ers team in need of his two-way capabilities.

    76ers' Robert Covington: Plays season-high 46 minutes in loss

    Covington played a season-high 46 minutes in Monday's double-overtime loss to the Knicks, providing 11 points (3-9 FG, 3-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT), five rebounds, two blocks, one steal, and one assist. Covington drew back into the starting five for the first time since Dec. 26 and was entrusted to stay on the court for nearly the entire contest, as Jerami Grant (calf) was limited to just 15 minutes in his return from an injury. With point guard Ish Smith (28 shot attempts) and Jahlil Okafor (17 attempts) dominating the Sixers' possessions, Covington didn't get much of an opportunity to look for his own offense, but continued to sparkle from three-point range. Over his last three games, he's knocked down 13-of-27 tries from beyond the arc.

    76ers' Robert Covington: Gets starting nod at small forward Monday

    Covington will receive the start at small forward in Monday's game against the Knicks, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. Jerami Grant (calf) will return from his injury, but he'll face a 20-minute restriction, which the Sixers can more capably manage while he comes off the bench. That will allow Covington to slide into the starting five at small forward, an appointment he's earned on the strength of his most recent two performances. In a narrow loss to the Bulls on Thursday and a blowout win over the Trail Blazers on Saturday, Covington combined to produce 41 points, 10 rebounds, 10 three-pointers, four assists, and three steals. He should be back on the fantasy radar now that his three-point shot is beginning to fall.
