Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Undergoes successful surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Still out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Listed out for Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 17, 2019 08:56 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Still on sideline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

March 13, 2019 06:20 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (knee) remains out for Thursday's game against the Jazz.

This marks 32 straight absences for Covington, who is still working his way back from a bone bruise in his right knee. He's made progress in recent weeks but it's very much unclear when he might make his return to game action.

March 11, 2019 04:48 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Ruled out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (knee) will not play Tuesday against the Nuggets, Dane Moore of 1500 ESPN in Minneapolis reports.

It will be the 31st consecutive absence for Covington, who remains without a firm timetable. The three-and-D wing returned to practice last week and recently returned from a conditioning stint in the G League, but it's unclear if he'll have a realistic shot to return for Thursday's game in Utah or Sunday's game in Houston.

March 6, 2019 02:20 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Sitting again Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (knee) is listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.

Covington won't be available for the second half of the back-to-back set, but his return to game action looks imminent after he recently rejoined the Timberwolves following a conditioning stint in the G League. If he's able to practice Friday without any complications with his right knee, he could be ready to play Saturday against the Wizards or Sunday versus the Knicks.

March 4, 2019 05:24 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Remains out Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) will remain out for Tuesday's game against the Thunder.

Covington is still working his way back from a bone bruise, and while he's making gradual progress, it's still very much unclear when he'll be back in the mix. Considering the Wolves are entering the first half of a home/road back-to-back, it's unlikely Covington will be available for Wednesday's game in Detroit.

March 2, 2019 02:44 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Recalled, still out Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) was recalled from the G League on Saturday, but he will still remain sidelined for Sunday's matchup against the Wizards.

Covington practiced with the G League recently, which is an encouraging sign and one of the last steps in his recovery. While he won't return over the weekend, it seems Covington will make his way back on the court soon. His next chance to play arrives Tuesday against the Thunder.

February 27, 2019 11:32 AM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: To practice in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) has been assigned to the G League to practice, Chris Hine of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He will not play in any games for the Iowa Wolves.

This represents a significant step in Covington's recovery. The wing has been out since Jan. 2 while recovering from a bruised right ankle, and the Wolves have turned to the likes of Luol Deng, Anthony Tolliver and Josh Okogie to help fulfill Covington's role. While Covington still doesn't have a concrete timetable for a return, it appears he'll be back sooner than later. In 22 games for the Wolves, he's averaged 14.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.5 threes, 2.3 steals, 1.5 assists and 1.1 blocks in 34.7 minutes.

February 26, 2019 05:28 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Ruled out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) won't play Wednesday against Atlanta, Kevin Chouinard of the Hawks' official site reports.

Covington is still without a concrete timetable for his return, and he's yet to be cleared for full-contact drills. It also seems unlikely that he'll be ready to go for the second half of Minnesota's back-to-back Thursday at Indiana.

February 25, 2019 02:16 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Still remains out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) is listed as out for Monday's game against the Kings.

Covington has been able to progress to limited practice participation but will still need clearance for full-contact work before his return to game action can be considered imminent. Josh Okogie will continue to hold down a starting gig on the wing alongside Andrew Wiggins until Covington is back in action.

February 21, 2019 01:48 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Limited at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) remained limited at Thursday's practice, Kyle Ratke of Timberwolves.com reports.

The defensive-minded wing remains without a timetable, but the Wolves noted that he won't travel on the upcoming, two-game road trip. Given that he's yet to practice at full speed, a return seems at least another few games away, and the Wolves likely won't update his status until prior to Monday's home matchup with the Kings.

February 12, 2019 05:00 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Out through break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) won't be available for Wednesday's game against the Rockets, Kyle Ratke of the Timberwolves' official site reports.

Covington has gradually been ramping up his workouts, but has yet to resume full-contact practice and remains without a timeline for a return. The Timberwolves will presumably re-evaluate Covington when they reconvene after the All-Star break and possibly provide an update for when he might be ready to play again.

February 11, 2019 12:56 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Remains without timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) remains without a timetable for a return, Danny Cunningham of 1500 ESPN Twin Cities reports.

Covington is reportedly in the "light running and light shooting" stage of his rehab from an ankle bruise but still remains without a timeline for a possible return. It's safe to rule Covington out for Monday's game against the Clippers and it's highly unlikely that he'll be back for the Timberwolves' final contest before the All-Star break Wednesday versus the Rockets.

February 8, 2019 02:04 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Remains out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) won't play Friday against New Orleans.

Without an official timetable for a return, Covington continues to be day-to-day with a bruised right ankle. His next chance to play arrives Monday against the Clippers.

February 6, 2019 04:36 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) is out Thursday against the Magic, Kyle Ratke of the Timberwolves' official site reports.

Covington remains without an official timetable for a return from a bruised right ankle that's kept him on the shelf since Jan. 2. His next chance to take the floor arrives Friday against the Pelicans, though it seems unlikely he'll be available.

February 5, 2019 01:48 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Still without timetable
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) will remain out Tuesday against the Grizzlies.

The Timberwolves are yet to provide much in the way of an update on Covington'st timetable, but he did return to light shooting over the weekend, so he appears to be moving in the right direction. Regardless, Covington will remain sidelined Tuesday as the Timberwolves begin a three-game road swing. The three-and-D win hasn't played since Dec. 31.

February 2, 2019 12:32 PM
Timberwolves' Robert Covington: Remains out Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (ankle) will remain out Saturday against Denver.

Covington, who has been sidelined since Dec. 31 with a right ankle bruise, has been making strides at a possible return soon, as he did some light shooting work following Friday's practice. Covington may be in line for a return Tuesday at Memphis bearing any major setbacks.
