Top Robert Covington News

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Out Wednesday

    Covington is out for Wednesday's matchup against the Mavericks due to a right knee injury, Mike Richman of The Oregonian reports.

    With Covington and Nassir Little (shoulder) sidelined, more minutes should be open for CJ Elleby. He fell out of the rotation Tuesday due to the return of Norman Powell but should play significant minutes Wednesday.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Cleared to play

    Covington (finger) will play Tuesday against the Timberwolves, Jamie Hudson of KOIN 6 News Portland reports.

    As expected, Covington will play through a finger dislocation. Since joining the starting five Jan. 7, he's averaging 11.4 points, 7.3 rebounds, 2.1 steals, 1.8 blocks and 1.3 assists in 35.0 minutes.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Probable Tuesday

    Covington is probable for Tuesday's game against Minnesota due to a left finger injury, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.

    Covington had a well-rounded performance in Sunday's win over the Raptors and posted nine points, five rebounds, five assists, two steals and two blocks in 31 minutes. Although the 31-year-old is now dealing with a finger injury, he should be able to play through the issue Tuesday.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Double-double despite shooting woes

    Covington closed Wednesday's 104-92 loss to the Heat with 11 points (3-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds and one block in 38 minutes.

    Covington might have ended with a double-double and solid shooting numbers, but he struggled from the field from a shooting perspective. It's worth noting Covington has been embracing a bigger role on offense of late and has attempted 10 or more shots in each of his last four appearances. He's averaging 10.8 points per game but is also shooting just 34.1 percent from the field in that span, though.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Flirts with double-double

    Covington amassed 15 points (5-13 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), nine rebounds, two assists, one block and four steals over 40 minutes during Saturday's 115-110 win over Washington.

    Portland's rash of injuries has allowed increased output for Covington, who was one rebound shy of collecting his first double-double of the season. While his offensive output is decent enough, Covington's defensive skillset is well-regarded and the primary cause for his consistent usage.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Steps up scoring in win

    Covington finished with 21 points (6-9 FG, 5-7 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist, three blocks and three steals across 34 minutes during Monday's 114-108 victory over the Nets.

    Covington typically puts up impressive defensive stats, so his three blocks and three steals Monday were a valuable but not altogether unexpected treat for his fantasy managers. More surprisingly, the veteran forward finished second on the team with 21 points, marking the first time he has exceeded the 20-point mark this season. Covington's fantasy value would blow up if he were ever able to transform into a steady scorer, but that seems unlikely given his career average of 11.7 points on 40.5 percent shooting.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Stellar defensive performance

    Covington notched eight points (2-8 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, one assist, three blocks and three steals in 35 minutes during Sunday's 103-88 victory over the Kings.

    With Larry Nance (knee) sidelined, Covington returned to the starting lineup Sunday and recorded multiple blocks and steals in the same game for the fifth time this season. During his second season with Portland, the 6-foot-7 forward is averaging 1.3 steals and 1.2 blocks per game, but he's shooting just 39.7 percent from the field and 33.9 percent from three.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Returns to starting five

    Covington closed with 17 points (6-9 FG, 5-8 3Pt), eight rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal in 34 minutes during Friday's 114-101 loss to Cleveland.

    Covington moved to the bench back in early December, but with Larry Nance (knee) injured Friday, he was back in the lineup at one forward spot and took advantage of the increased opportunity. On the whole, it's been a fairly disappointing season for the rangy wing, but as usual, he's providing fantasy managers with over 1.0 blocks, steals, assists and three-pointers per game.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Starting for injured Nance

    Covington is starting Friday's game against the Cavaliers, Jay Allen of NBC Sports Northwest Rip City Radio 620 reports.

    Covington came off the bench in each of the last two games and averaged 7.0 points and 6.5 rebounds in 26.0 minutes per contest. However, he'll make his first start in nearly a month since Larry Nance (knee) is unavailable.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: No longer on injury report

    Covington (COVID-19) is no longer on the team's injury report, Aaron J. Fentress of The Oregonian reports.

    Covington has finally cleared health and safety protocols and will be available for the Trail Blazers on Monday. It'll be his game active since Dec. 21. Throughout 32 games played this season, Covington is averaging 6.7 points and 5.0 rebounds.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Added to health and safety protocols

    The Trail Blazers placed Covington in the NBA's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Saturday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    He's one of five Portland players to enter the league protocol since Christmas Eve, joining Dennis Smith, Trendon Watford, Keljin Blevins and Ben McLemore. Unless he tests out of protocol early, Covington will likely miss multiple games, starting with Monday's tilt against the Mavericks.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Defensive production continues

    Covington accumulated seven points (3-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists, one block and two steals over 31 minutes during Tuesday's 111-97 loss to New Orleans.

    Covington racked up another three combined defensive stats in the loss, showing that his relegation to the bench should not necessarily be seen as a negative. Both he and Larry Nance Jr. have seen an uptick in production since the shift, in what has been great news for fantasy managers. It is unclear exactly where the minutes will settle, but for now, make sure Covington is not floating around on any waiver wires.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Trail Blazers-Nets postponed

    Covington and the Trail Blazers won't play the Nets on Thursday after the NBA postponed the game due to Brooklyn not having the league-required eight available players for that contest.

    As a result of the postponement, fantasy managers in weekly leagues will get just one game out of Covington, who supplied seven points (3-7 FG, 1-5 3Pt), five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 31 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 111-97 loss to the Pelicans. Covington and the Trail Blazers will return to action Monday against the Mavericks.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Fills stat sheet but shoots poorly

    Covington registered three points (1-6 FG, 1-5 3Pt), five rebounds, three assists, four blocks and five steals in 34 minutes during Sunday's 116-111 loss to Minnesota.

    Covington can't be relied upon for scoring figures and that was certainly noticeable in this contest, but the fact that he filled the stat sheet at such a volume is worth pointing out. His upside is minimal due to his lack of scoring numbers, as evidenced by the fact that he's scored in double digits just once in his last 11 games, but don't rule him out as a streaming option in case you need defensive or rebounding stats.

  • Trail Blazers' Robert Covington: Dropped from starting five

    Covington is set to move to the bench for Sunday's game against the Timberwolves, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.

    Head coach Chauncey Billups will shake things up in the starting five as the reeling Trail Blazers -- losers of fourth straight games -- look to get back on the winning track. Larry Nance will step in as the top-unit power forward in place of Covington, who has been one of several veterans who has slumped during Portland's 11-15 start to the season. While starting in each of Portland's 26 games, Covington is averaging 6.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.6 three-pointers, 1.2 assists, 1.0 blocks and 1.0 steals in 26.8 minutes. Expect his demotion to the second unit to come with a downturn in minutes, too.
