      76ers' Robert Covington: Swipes seven steals Sunday

      Covington contributed 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, four assists, seven steals, and one block in 37 minutes during the 76ers' 92-84 loss versus the Grizzlies on Sunday. Covington committed eight of the 76ers' 25 turnovers, but he also became the first player to have three straight games with five or more steals since Metta World Peace accomplished that back in 2010. Covington has already made a name for himself during his brief career as a solid defender and outside shooter, and he will likely continue playing heavy minutes going forward so long as the 76ers don't trade him to a contender.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Huge game in Friday's loss

      Covington scored 28 points (7-12 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 8-9 FT) while adding eight steals, seven rebounds, five assists and a block in 38 minutes during Friday's loss to the Rockets. He did everything he possibly could to try and help the Sixers avoid setting the modern record for consecutive losses by a North American sports franchise, but Philly still came up two points short. Covington's been on fire the last four games, averaging 19.5 points, 8.3 boards, an incredible 4.8 steals, 3.5 threes and 1.0 blocks in 35.0 minutes, and as long as he keeps seeing big minutes on a team as bereft of talent as the Sixers, he's capable of filling up the stat sheet on a regular basis.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Collects double-double Wednesday

      Covington recorded 11 points (4-16 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 14 rebounds, six steals, and two blocks in 35 minutes during the 76ers' 84-80 loss versus the Celtics on Wednesday. Covington was ice cold on Wednesday while committing four turnovers. Still, he managed to fill up the stat sheet, grabbing 14 rebounds, swiping six steals, and swatting two blocks. Coach Brett Brown has continued to make lineup changes pretty frequently, but if Covington can start knocking down some shots from the outside it will be tough for Brown to overlook him for playing time. For now, at least he is finding other ways to make an impact, but his efficiency is tough to swallow in some leagues.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Gets starting nod against Boston

      Covington will get the start over Jerami Grant against the Celtics on Wednesday, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Covington was a fantasy darling last season but has mostly disappointed this year after missing an early portion of games with a knee injury. Now that he's scored in double digits in each of his last two games and is moving into the starting five, however, he could start producing at a rate that was expected of him heading into the 2015-16 campaign, making him a viable option across all formats.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Has second straight strong performance

      Covington had his second straight strong performance Monday against the Timberwolves, posting 18 points (6-14 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 3-4 FT), six rebounds, three steals, and one assist in 35 minutes. Covington has now logged five games since returning from an injury, and he's looked better over the last two contests. He's still coming off the bench, though he figures to return to the starting lineup eventually, and it appears he's starting to find his touch again. Covington has the potential to score, post three-pointers, and grab steals, so owners need to continue to be patient as he gets back into game shape, and expect that he'll be back to his usual self in perhaps two weeks' time.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Has another rough outing Friday

      Covington recorded nine points (1-7 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 7-7 FT), three rebounds, three assists, one steal, and one block in 23 minutes during the 76ers' 113-88 loss versus the Hornets on Friday. Covington couldn't throw a rock in the ocean on Friday, and he has struggled badly to start the season. Still, he is just beginning to work his way back from a knee injury that cost him nine games, and he should have plenty of opportunity to get things together on a 76ers' squad in dire need of some floor-spacing.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Gets the start Friday in Charlotte

      Covington will get the start Friday in Charlotte, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer reports. Covington has replaced Nerlens Noel in Philadelphia's starting lineup Friday. The winless 76ers appear to be shaking up the lineup in order to light a spark under the team. Covington has played 22.7 minutes in three games so far this season, and will look to take advantage of this starting opportunity.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Still shaking off the rust

      Covington recorded eight points (4-13 FG, 0-5 3Pt), five rebounds, one assist, two steals, and one block in 23 minutes during the 76ers' 112-85 loss versus the Pacers on Wednesday. Covington came off the bench, and struggled to find his shooting touch on Wednesday. Through three games, he is averaging 6.3 points (23.3 FG, 0.0 3Pt, 83.3 FT), 4.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist, 1.7 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 22 minutes per game. Having only logged 66 minutes thus far this season, it's far too early to be disappointed in Covington's output. As he settles in and likely rejoins the starting lineup soon, look for him to start sinking some of those three-point attempts while providing decent rebounding and defensive stats. In 2014-15, Covington connected on 2.4 three-pointers per game while converting at a 37.4 percent clip. The 76ers are back in action on Friday versus the Hornets.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Coming off bench Wednesday

      Covington will not start Wednesday against Indiana, Candace Buckner of Indy Star Sports reports. Covington was put into the starting lineup before the game instead of Nerlens Noel in attempt to better matchup with the Pacer's smaller lineup. Indiana changed to a bigger lineup, however, so just before the game coach Brett Brown moved Noel back into the starting lineup, again relegating Covington to his usual bench role.

      76ers' Robert Covington: Will start in Wednesday's game

      Covington will start Wednesday against Indiana, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Covington has only played twice this season as he worked his way back from a MCL sprain in his right knee, but he'll start over Nerlens Noel against the Pacers. This change in the lineup is due to Paul George starting at power forward for Indiana, causing Philadelphia to alter it's lineup to defend George with Jerami Grant rather than Noel. This change shouldn't be expected to last, with Grant likely returning to a bench role after this tilt.
