  • 76ers' Robert Covington: Out at least three more weeks

    Covington (knee) is progressing in his rehabilitation program with the goal of ramping up his on-court activities over the next three weeks, Adam Aaronson of PhillyVoice.com reports. He's set to be re-evaluated in 10-to-14 days.

    Covington isn't yet practicing, but if he continues to respond well to his rehab program over the next week and a half or so, he could be cleared to mix into drills with his healthy teammates once he's re-evaluated. Because he hasn't played since Dec. 30 due to a left knee bone bruise, Covington will require some ramp-up time, though he's not expected to hold a major role off the Philadelphia bench once he's ready for game action.

  • 76ers' Robert Covington: Still three weeks away

    Covington (knee) is still about three weeks away from a return, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Covington has been sidelined since Dec. 30 and has yet to return to practice for the 76ers. With this updated return timetable, Covington will likely be re-evaluated in mid-March.

  • 76ers' Robert Covington: Not yet practicing

    Philadelphia head coach Nick Nurse said Sunday that Covington (knee) hasn't been cleared to practice, Austin Krell of USA Today reports. "Not much light at the end of that tunnel," Nurse said, in reference to when Covington might be available.

    Covington hasn't played since Dec. 30 due to a left knee bone bruise, and based on the pessimistic tone of Nurse's comments, the veteran forward's return doesn't appear to be imminent. The 76ers announced Jan. 24 that Covington was scheduled to be re-evaluated in 3-to-4 weeks, but that timeline shouldn't be viewed as an indicator of when he might be ready to return. Even if Covington isn't cleared to resume on-court activity coming out of the All-Star break, he'll likely need a full week's worth of workouts to get his conditioning back in order following a prolonged absence. Covington will likely be in line for only a minor role in the Philadelphia rotation once he's cleared to play.

  • 76ers' Robert Covington: Out another 3-to-4 weeks

    Covington (knee) will be re-evaluated in 3-to-4 weeks, Kyle Neubeck of AllPHLY.com reports.

    Based on this re-evaluation date, Covington looks as though he'll be sidelined through the All-Star break after showing limited improvement over the past three weeks while receiving treatment to address inflammation and bone bruising in his left knee. Even before sustaining the injury, Covington had been a fringe member of the rotation. His continued absence could nonetheless continue to open up room on the second unit for Marcus Morris (foot) and Danuel House.
