The 76ers are hoping to sign Robert Covington to a contract extension during the offseason. He currently has one of the best contracts in the NBA as he's scheduled to make $1.5 million for the final year of his deal. The 76ers can't afford to risk letting Covington walk as an unrestricted free agent next summer, so an extension is likely a top priority for the franchise. The forward had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee back in mid-April, but he should be cleared to resume basketball activities sometime in June. The 26-year-old wing is a fantasy stud and posted averages of 12.9 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.0 blocks, 1.9 steals and 2.0 treys on his way to a top-40 finish in standard leagues.

Robert Covington had surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his right knee Tuesday in Philadelphia. Per Sixers team doctors, Covington is expected to resume full weight bearing in two weeks and begin basketball activities this summer. Last week, RoCo said that full recovery time is usually 4-6 weeks, but that he might be able to beat that estimate because he had a head start on rehab. Also, Covington said the that the MRI showed it was "just a baby tear." He should certainly be ready to roll by the time training camp arrives.

Robert Covington (right knee) expects to miss 4-6 weeks as he recovers from a slight tear in his lateral meniscus. Covington said he could be back sooner, too, because he's had a "head start on rehab." Based on this report it sounds as though he will not require surgery, which should result in a speedy return to the court. Barring a setback, he'll be ready to roll for training camp.

Robert Covington (right knee) will miss the rest of the season after an MRI revealed a slight tear of lateral meniscus. A slight tear in the meniscus, which is the same injury to end Joel Embiid's year. Covington did have a right MCL sprain back in 2015, so this isn't his first knee issue. The team will likely announce their treatment plan, and surgery could also be an option -- it was for Embiid. With RoCo out, Justin Anderson should get some heavy minutes the rest of the way and is worth a look in standard leagues. Dario Saric, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Nik Stauskas and Shawn Long should all slightly benefit.

Robert Covington (right knee) will not make the trip for games on Friday and Sunday as doctors continue to evaluate results of his MRI. He's already missed one game with his right knee soreness and had an MRI on Wednesday. Considering the 76ers are in the mix for the No. 4 to No. 8 spot in the lottery, they may just hold Covington out to get a longer look at Justin Anderson and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. Covington's fantasy owners may have to consider dropping him while Anderson makes for a solid pickup the rest of the week.
