Covington (knee) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Monday, Jon Krawczynski of The Athletic reports. Covington elected to go under the knife in an effort to assist his recovery from a bone bruise. A timetable for his return has yet to be released, but more details should surface when he begins to clear hurdles in his rehab.
Covington (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of the season. It appeared Covington was making progress with his bruised right knee, but he suffered a setback. And with the Timberwolves essentially out of the playoff hunt, there's little reason to rush the forward back. Covington appeared in 22 games for the Wolves after being dealt there by the Sixers. After the trade, he averaged 14.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.3 steals, 1.5 assists and 1.1 blocks in 34.7 minutes. He also drilled 2.5 threes per contest and established himself as a quality fantasy asset. Covington will likely open the 2019-20 season in the Wolves' starting lineup.
Covington (knee) is out for Thursday's matchup against the Hornets. There was hope Covington would be back by now, but the discomfort associated with his bruised right knee remains. His next chance to take the floor arrives Saturday against the Grizzlies.
Covington (knee) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Warriors. Covington will miss his 34th consecutive game as he continues to deal with a bone bruise on his right knee. It's unclear if he will return this season, and at this time, he should be considered questionable for Thursday's game against the Hornets.
Covington (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Rockets. Covington will now have missed 33 straight games with a bone bruise in his right knee. He remains without a clear timetable and it seems unlikely the Timberwolves will bother bringing him back before season's end.
