Rockets' Robert Covington: Officially cleared to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington (head) will be available for Thursday's Game 4 against the Lakers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Covington emerged unscathed from a scary collision near the end of Game 3, but the Rockets initially listed him as questionable on their injury report. As expected, he's now been removed from the report and should start at his usual forward spot. Covington finished Game 3 with 10 points, five rebounds, three assists and four steals in 36 minutes.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington is listed as questionable for Thursday's Game 4 against the Lakers due to a headache, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Covington passed a concussion protocol test, but he's dealing with a headache. While he was originally expected to play, some doubt has now been cast upon his status.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Will play Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington will play in Thursday's Game 4 against the Lakers, Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Covington was involved in a nasty collision late in Game 3 that left him with a bloodied head, but he passed through concussion tests and appears to have avoided any major damage. Coach Mike D'Antoni called Covington "fine" at practice Wednesday, noting that he's "completely over" the collision. "I did everything I was supposed to yesterday, went through the protocol today. I passed with flying colors," Covington told reporters.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Unscathed from Game 3 collision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington is expected to be available for Thursday's Game 4 after he was taken to the locker room in the fourth quarter of Tuesday's 112-102 loss to the Lakers when his face collided with Anthony Davis' right arm, Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com reports.

Covington avoided a broken nose and passed all concussion tests that were administered in the locker room, so he looks set to head into Game 4 with no restrictions. The Rockets' starting power forward still played 36 minutes in the Game 3 loss, finishing with 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-4 3Pt), five rebounds, four steals and three assists.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Stellar production in Game 7 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington finished with 21 points (7-15 FG, 6-11 3Pt, 1-2 FT), 10 rebounds, three steals, three blocks and two assists in 39 minutes during Wednesday's 104-102 Game 7 victory over the Thunder.

Covington was the best player on the court Wednesday, helping lift the Rockets to a 4-3 series victory. After a somewhat slow start to bubble life, Covington has found his rhythm over the past few games. With James Harden unusually quiet on the offensive end, Covington did more of the heavy lifting as well as putting up his typical defensive production. The Rockets will move on to face the Lakers in the next round of the playoffs.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Stays hot in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington tallied 18 points (7-11 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 0-0 FT), five rebounds, five steals and three blocks in 38 minutes of Monday's 104-100 loss to Oklahoma City.

Covington is saving his best series play for last so far, as he's scored a combined 40 points over his last two games. He may need to sustain that if the Rockets are to advance past Wednesday's Game 7.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Scorching hot from deep
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington registered 22 points (8-14 FG, 6-11 3Pt), seven rebounds, three assists and three steals in 32 minutes during Saturday's 114-80 Game 5 win over the Thunder.

Covington broke his playoff record for most threes in a game and delivered a strong offensive performance -- only James Harden scored more points than the former 76ers and Timberwolves' wing. Covington is an integral part of the Rockets' scheme on both ends of the court, but his value in DFS contests could skyrocket if he starts scoring like this on a more consistent basis.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Sinks four treys in Game 4 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington posted 14 points (5-11 FG, 4-8 3Pt), six rebounds, two blocks and an assist in 34 minutes during Monday's 117-114 Game 4 loss to the Thunder.

Covington delivered a solid bounce-back performance offensively while providing his usual defensive production. After averaging 1.8 blocks in the eight regular-season games following the restart, he's managed five blocks through the first four playoff games. This was also Covington's biggest minutes load thus far this postseason, and he may well receive even more playing time during Wednesday's Game 5.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Plays just 19 minutes Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington managed just five points (1-2 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two steals and one block in 19 minutes during Saturday's 119-107 loss to Oklahoma City.

Covington was unable to influence Saturday's outcome as he was relegated to the bench for much fo the second half. Jeff Green was excellent off the bench, scoring 22 points including five triples, thus limiting Covington's time on the floor. Despite the poor performance, Covington is a big part of what the Rockets are trying to do and he should be better than this when the two teams meet again on Tuesday.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Double-double plus three swipes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington produced 12 points (5-10 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-3 FT), 13 rebounds, three steals and two assists in 32 minutes during Sunday's 129-112 win over the Kings.

Covington continues to lead the team defensively along with P.J. Tucker while regularly hoisting away from deep beyond the arc. Covington can be inconsistent offensively, but even on his worst shooting nights he still earns no shortage of minutes due to his high-level defense.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Scores 15 points
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington finished with 15 points (5-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven boards, one block, and three steals in 37 minutes of a 120-116 win against Milwaukee on Sunday.

Covington finished in double figures for the third consecutive game as Houston was able to overcome a late eight-point deficit for the win against Milwaukee. His three steals were the most he's had in a game since being acquired by the Rockets in February. He'll face the Trail Blazers on Tuesday.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Swats four shots
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington tallied seven points (3-10 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds, four blocks and two assists in 26 minutes Sunday in the Rockets' 126-106 loss to the Magic.

Covington has been held in the single digits in scoring in two of his last three outings, but he poured in 25 points and seven treys in the other game, and he's racked up eight blocks between the three contests. As that production illustrates, Covington is still capable of giving fantasy managers something useful even on nights he doesn't shoot the ball well, making him a highly valuable option.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Back-to-back double-doubles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington notched 20 points (7-14 FG, 6-11 3Pt), 13 rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 34 minutes during Monday's 125-123 loss at New York.

Covington has scored in double digits in eight of his first 10 games with the Rockets since being traded from the Timberwolves, but he has also averaged 8.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.2 steals and 2.5 blocks during that stretch. He's shooting just 36.4 percent from deep and that could improve, but until now, Covington has been doing exactly what the team needs from him on both ends of the court.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Stat-stuffing performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington ended with 16 points (6-12 FG, 4-10 3Pt), 16 rebounds, three blocks and a steal in 39 minutes during Saturday's 111-110 victory over the Celtics.

Covington reaped the benefits of the Celtics' poor shot selection, grabbing a career-high 16 boards and blocking three shots for the sixth game in a row. The 29-year-old also provided on the offensive end, extending his run of contests with 10-plus points to three. Covington ended his first month with the Rockets averaging 12.8 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.5 blocks.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Ties season-high four blocks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington posted 11 points (4-10 FG, 3-8 3Pt), seven rebounds, four blocks, one steal and one assist across 30 minutes during Monday's 123-112 victory over the Knicks.

Covington continues to be a shockingly-good shot-blocker for the Rockets, who have often deployed him as a small-ball center. He tied his season-high four blocks Monday, and he's averaging 2.6 blocks since joining the Rockets, not to mention 1.1 steals. Since his rookie 2013-14 season, Covington has the most performances in the league with at least two threes, two steals and two blocks (32). The next highest are Danny Green and James Harden, who have 26 apiece.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Posts 20 with five treys in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington tallied 20 points (7-13 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), five rebounds, four blocked shots and an assist across 27 minutes in Thursday's 135-105 win over the Warriors.

Covington is making Mike D'Antoni look like a genius. The new acquisition is the glue that holds Houston's small-ball scheme together, as he's combining his well-regarded defensive skills with substantial offensive contributions. His plus-31 plus-minus Thursday is evidence of his tremendous impact. A steady forward with offensive pop at the wing is what the Rockets have been missing in recent seasons, and it appears Covington might be the answer.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Stat stuffing performance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington ended with 12 points (3-11 FG, 2-8 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, four blocks, three assists and three steals in 38 minutes during Tuesday's 116-105 victory over the Celtics.

Covington continues to shine for his new team, turning in a vintage performance Tuesday. He has been a perfect addition for the Rockets and the playing would indicate he was being underutilized in Minnesota. His scoring is typically going to hover around 12-15 points per game but it is the supporting stats that provide the base for his overall value. He could be a second-round player moving forward, especially given the Rockets are going to give him all the run he can handle.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Logs 35 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington chipped in 14 points (5-12 FG, 4-10 3Pt), five rebounds, a steal and a block Sunday night in the Rockets' 114-113 loss to Utah.

Covington started for the second straight game and has seemingly stepped into his full role. This may be an accurate representation of Covington's production going forward, as Houston will likely ask him to live beyond the arc and have active hands on defense.

Rockets' Robert Covington: Scores nine in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington finished with nine points (4-10 FG, 1-7 3Pt), and five rebounds in 25 minutes of a 127-91 loss to the Suns on Friday.

Covington appeared in his second game since being traded to the Rockets, making his first start. He struggled from deep in the contest after making more than 50 percent of his tries in his Rockets debut. He'll get a chance to rebound on Sunday against the Jazz.

Rockets' Robert Covington: In starting lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Covington will get the start at power forward for Friday's matchup with the Suns, Craig Ackerman of AT&T SportsNet Southwest reports.

Covington came off the bench in his debut with the club in Thursday's victory over the Lakers. He finished the night with 14 points (5-9 FG, 4-7 3Pt), eight rebounds, four assists, two steals and two blocked shots across 30 minutes. He figures to be heavily involved in the Rockets rotation going forward.
