Covington delivered 19 points (5-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 11 rebounds and two steals across 44 minutes in Tuesday's double-overtime loss against the Nuggets.
Covington might have missed a dunk that could've changed the game in the second overtime, but he still ended as the Blazers' second-highest scorer while also managing a double-double. The defensive specialist has struggled to provide value on offense, though, and, in fact, this was his first double-digit scoring game of the current playoff run.
Covington posted 16 points (5-10 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 37 minutes in Thursday's 118-117 loss to the Suns.
The arrival of Norman Powell has tempered Covington's totals to a degree. While the duo of Covington snd Gary Trent seemed to complement each other, Covington and Powell bring similar skill sets to the table. The switch has resulted in an increased emphasis on defense for the veteran, which has always been his strong suit. Unfortunately, defensive intangibles don't usually result in worthwhile fantasy totals. Thanks to an above-average night from beyond the arc, Covington was able to put together his best scoring total of the month.
Covington totaled five points (2-3 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Wednesday's 105-98 win over the Jazz.
Covington is Portland's swiss army knife, and he showed that Wednesday by impacting the game in ways other than scoring. Despite only attempting three shots, Covington had a successful fantasy output by snagging seven rebounds (second highest on the team) and snatching two steals. Only Jusuf Nurkic (3) had more.
Covington collected nine points (3-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), five rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block in a 123-114 loss to the Hawks on Monday.
Covington played his usual strong defense but failed to score in double figures for the fifth time in his last seven contests. Over that stretch, the forward has averaged just 7.1 points but has also added 7.3 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 1.0 steals per game.
Covington had 10 points (3-6 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks in Sunday's win over Boston.
The versatile swing man has been all over the map lately, but this was one of his better showings in recent weeks. Entering Sunday, Covington had been averaging just 7.0 points on 36.6 percent shooting (30.4 percent 3Pt) in his last 15 games.
Covington was held scoreless (0-6 FG, 0-4 3Pt) in Wednesday's win over the Grizzlies.
Covington broke out of a prolonged slump with 15 points, 11 rebounds and two blocks against the Pacers on Tuesday, but he fell back into a rut on the second half of the back-to-back. While Covington did add six rebounds, one assist, one steal and two blocks, his offense has fallen off a cliff over the last few weeks. In the past 12 games, Covington is averaging just 6.5 points on 34.2 percent shooting, including 29.5 percent from beyond the arc.
Covington was held to two points (0-7 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), eight rebounds, two assists and a steal in Sunday's loss to the Grizzlies.
While Covington remains a valuable source of defensive stats, he's fallen into a slump of late, scoring in single-digits in nine of his last 10 contests, while shooting well under 40 percent from the floor during that stretch. Since hitting six three-pointers against the Bucks on April 2, Covington is just 13 of his last 45 from beyond the arc.
Covington posted nine points (3-10 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, four assists, a steal and a block in Sunday's loss to the Heat.
Covington was on a tear around the end of March, but he's now posted single-digit scoring totals in four of his last five appearances. Covington is shooting only 26.1 percent from three during that span, though he's still providing managers with 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game.
Covington scored 15 points (6-13 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 1-2 FT) while adding nine rebounds, two assists, two steals and a block in 36 minutes during Tuesday's loss to the Clippers.
The veteran forward just missed his sixth double-double of the season. Covington has come alive after a sluggish start to his Portland tenure. In the six games since Norman Powell was added to the mix, Covington has averaged 13.7 points, 8.0 boards, 3.2 threes, 1.8 blocks, 1.7 assists and 1.7 steals -- a slight step up from his typical production over recent seasons.
Covington totaled 16 points (6-8 FG, 4-5 3Pt), six rebounds, three steals, one assist and one block over 30 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Pistons.
Covington has scored in double figures in seven of his last eight games. He's also been a consistent source of rebounds, grabbing at least five in 22 straight contests. On the defensive side of the ball, Covington has registered a steal in all but one game while blocking a shot in all but two outings this month.
Covington posted 13 points (4-11 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 12 rebounds, four blocks, three steals and two assists in Sunday night's win over Toronto.
It was one of the best all-around efforts of the season for Covington, who notched his second double-double since the All-Star break. Covington's four blocks were his most since Feb. 20, while his three steals were his second-most in any game this season.
Covington registered 15 points (4-5 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight rebounds, five assists, four blocks and one steal across 30 minutes Friday in the Trail Blazers' 112-105 win over the Magic.
Covington showcased the full range of his skill set Friday, with the defensive production, in particular, standing out. The 30-year-old's block rate had been way down early in the season, but the Trail Blazers' willingness to use him as a small-ball center more frequently during Jusuf Nurkic's (wrist) 32-game absence helped Covington average 1.4 swats per game during that stretch. Nurkic returned to action and played 18 minutes Friday, so it was encouraging that Covington was still able to thrive as a rim protector.
Covington posted 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-5 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two blocked shots, a steal and an assist across 36 minutes in Thursday's 101-93 win over the Pelicans.
The Trail Blazers are not known for their defense, but they would be far worse without Covington as part of their core. His fantasy contribution can be a bit streaky, but Covington's reputation as a stingy defender doesn't always show up in the stat line. Although Jusuf Nurkic's return will shake up things in the frontcourt, Covington should retain his role because a twin-rower setup of Nurkic and Enes Kanter would only be used against teams where there is a size mismatch.
Covington produced 19 points (7-13 FG, 4-7 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, a steal and a blocked shot across 39 minutes in Sunday's 114-112 loss to the Timberwolves.
The journeyman forward could be one of the league's streakiest players this season, but he certainly can pop when given the opportunity. His four three-pointers helped to bolster his scoring total in Sunday's loss, and he continued to prove his worth as one of the league's best defenders with excellent secondary numbers. Covington's primary problem is consistency, but the numbers indicate that he's far more dependable against teams with weak frontcourt defenses.
Covington tallied 15 points (5-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-4 FT), nine rebounds, three blocks, two steals and one assist across 38 minutes Wednesday in the Trail Blazers' 108-106 win over the Warriors.
Covington did a little bit of everything Wednesday, continuing his run of strong play following a slow start to his first season in Portland. Over the last two games alone, Covington has racked up 36 points, 19 rebounds, eight three-pointers, four steals and four blocks and three assists.
Covington finished Monday's 123-111 win over Charlotte with 21 points (8-11 FG, 5-7 3Pt), 10 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocked shots across 38 minutes.
Covington hasn't been much of a scorer this season -- he entered Monday averaging only 7.7 points per contest -- but he came through with his highest point total of the season to aid in Monday's victory. His success was largely tied to his stroke from beyond the arc, as Covington tied a season high with five three-pointers on only seven attempts. The veteran didn't sacrifice defense to ascend to greater offensive heights, as he notched a pair of steals and blocks while also pulling down 10 boards for the second straight game.
Covington had zero points (0-5 FG, 0-4 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist and one block in 26 minutes during Tuesday's 111-106 loss to the Nuggets.
The 30-year-old had made multiple three-pointers in each of the previous five games, but he was unable to score at all during Tuesday's defeat. It's the first time this season Covington failed to contribute in the scoring column.
Covington scored six points (2-4 FG, 2-3 3Pt) and contributed five rebounds, two assists, two blocks and one steal in the Trail Blazers' 132-100 loss to the Suns on Monday.
While Covington had another solid outing of counting stats, it wasn't enough to keep the game close. The veteran picked up two blocks, giving him 16 over the last four games. Covington won't give you consistent scoring, but he is a guy that can provide a little bit of everything else, which keeps him relevant in fantasy leagues.
Covington tallied 11 points (4-11 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 11 rebounds, four blocked shots and two steals in a loss to the Wizards on Saturday.
Covington isn't much of an asset in the scoring column -- he is averaging only 7.7 points on the campaign -- but he offers upside in other categories, collecting 6.3 boards, 1.6 steals and 1.0 blocks per game. The veteran is also good for a couple treys per contest, though his overall 37.1 field-goal percentage brings down his value in rotisserie leagues.
Covington had 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 3Pt), eight rebounds, two steals, four blocks and an assist in Wednesday's win over the Pelicans.
One night after putting up six points, nine rebounds and a season-high six blocks, Covington turned in another stellar all-around performance as Portland notched its sixth consecutive victory. Overall, Covington's scoring and shot-blocking numbers are still down relative to last year, but he's beginning to look more like his old self of late.
