Covington (back) has been cleared to play in Friday's game against the Thunder, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Covington has missed the last two games with a lower back bruise, but is feeling much better and has been cleared for a return to the court Friday. He should slot back in as the Sixers' starting small forward, which should push Dario Saric back to his typical power forward spot and Richaun Holmes to the bench. Covington's return will likely mean less minutes for both Holmes and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot.
Covington (back) has been ruled out of Tuesday's game against the Timberwolves, Jerry Zgoda of the Star Tribune reports.
Covington will miss his second straight game due to a lower back contusion after being ruled a game-time decision heading into the contest. The 76ers will bump Dario Saric up to small forward for the contest and Richaun Holmes will get the start in the front court alongside Joel Embiid. Look for Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to also see an uptick in minutes off the bench with Covington out.
Covington (back) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's tilt against the Timberwolves, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Covington missed Sunday's game due to a bruised back and was labeled questionable ahead of Tuesday's morning shootaround. After shootaround, his status hasn't changed, as he'll be a game-time decision. If he's ultimately held out, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot may start in his place again. He saw 24 minutes Sunday. Dario Saric, J.J. Redick and Furkan Korkmaz could see additional run as well.
Covington (back) is now listed as questionable for Tuesday's matchup with the Timberwolves, Kieth Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Covington had to sit out Sunday's contest with a bruised back and was originally given a doubtful designation for Tuesday, though he's now been upgraded to questionable. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot started in his place Sunday, posting four points, one rebound and one assist over 24 minutes. He'd likely be in line for another start if Covington can't give it a go, with Jerryd Bayless also picking up significant minutes off the bench.
Covington (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Pelicans and is also considered doubtful for Tuesday's matchup with the Timberwolves, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.
A CT scan and X-rays came back negative on Covington's back, but he's still dealing with a fairly significant bruise and will likely sit out the next two games. That would give Covington another five days off for rest and rehabilitation prior to Friday's contest, though his practice availability the rest of the week should be telling regarding how well his recovery is going. With Covington out, look for Jerryd Bayless and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot to pick up more minutes.
