Covington (knee) underwent successful minor arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Tuesday.
Covington was sidelined for the 76ers' final eight regular season contests after being diagnosed with a slight tear of the lateral meniscus in his right knee. With surgery to repair the issue a success, Covington will begin rehabilitating and taking on full weight-bearing activites in two weeks and is expected to resume basketball activities over the summer.
Bayless (wrist) is expected to be cleared for full contact drills in about a month, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
This is great news for Bayless, as it looks as though he will have plenty of time to return to form before training camp starts up again. With any offseason moves the 76ers decide to make pending, Bayless, who will be on the second year of his three-year deal with the 76ers, is expected to take on the role of being former No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons' primary backup at point guard next season, but Bayless will likely, given his outside shooting ability, play off the ball alongside Simmons as well.
Polythress started at power forward and scored 18 points (9-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt) while adding six rebounds, one assist and one steal in 32 minutes during Wednesday's 114-113 loss to the Knicks.
The rookie out of Kentucky scored his career high on the final night of the season. He only play six games all season, all in April. He averaged 26.0 minutes, 10.7 points and 4.8 rebounds per game.
Anderson scored 26 points (9-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 5-7 FT) and added three assists, three steals, two rebounds and one block during 35 minutes in Wednesday's 114-113 loss to the Knicks.
Anderson set his career high for points, closing 2016-17 on a high note. Anderson saw a lot of run late in the season, while the 76ers roster lost player after player to injuries. He averaged 26.8 minutes per game over the final nine games of the season, after averaging only 17.8 minutes in his 15 previous appearances as a 76er.
Covington (knee) is scheduled to undergo surgery and will be sidelined 4-6 weeks, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
Covington is on record saying that the surgery is "not as serious as people think." Both and he the team are treating the meniscus tear with extreme caution to avoid any further setbacks. Covington should be a full go for preseason workouts.
