Robert Covington went scoreless (0-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt), grabbing four rebounds and recording one block in 19 minutes during the Philadelphia 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.
Covington missed Monday's practice due to a stomach illness, but he went through a full workout Tuesday and figures to be ready for Wednesday's matchup with the Hawks. The swingman has had an up-and-down season, but he's been productive lately, averaging 15.5 points, 7.5 rebounds, and 1.4 steals over his last eight contests while shooting 42 percent from three-point land on more than eight attempts per game.
The illness is likely nothing serious, but Covington should be considered day-to-day until the team says otherwise. With another day off before Wednesday's matchup with the Hawks, Covington figures to have a good chance to play, though more information should be available following Tuesday's practice.
Robert Covington had 12 points (5-11 FG, 2-7 3Pt), 13 rebounds, two steals, a block and an assist in a loss Saturday against the Warriors.
Covington played a team-high 36 minutes and thrived in the up-tempo style of play against the Warriors on Saturday. The 13 rebounds were one shy of his season-high and he did great work at the defensive end as well. Covington was once a sneaky play in fantasy, but those days are long gone and now everyone knows his name. Covington's minutes have been trending in the right direction over the last six games, and he will continue to stuff the stat in a number of different areas.
Robert Covington scored 19 points (7-15 FG, 5-12 3Pt) with five rebounds during 32 minutes in Tuesday's 113-103 win against the Suns.
Covington has been taking the highest volume of 3-point shots in the Eastern Conference lately and Tuesday was no different. It was the second game in a row that Covington drained five or more treys. He's averaging a shade over four makes a game from downtown, but has also gained value through his rebounding. The Philadelphia 76ers haven't been a complete joke lately, which has helped Covington elevate his fantasy production.
