Robert Covington    F  76ers

 

 

Robert Covington went 3-of-10 from the field and 4-of-4 from the stripe on Monday, on his way to 11 points, eight rebounds, two assists, one 3-pointer, one steal and two turnovers in 35 minutes. Covington has been struggling through the month of January, connecting on just 35.5% of his attempts over the past four games to go with measly averages of 8.5 points, 5.8 boards, 1.5 triples, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals and 2.0 turnovers per contest. He's prone to the occasional cold streak, but it should only be a matter of time until he's churning out elite value again, particularly in the steals department.

Robert Covington had another quiet game on Thursday, shooting 2-of-8 from the field with one 3-pointer for five points, three rebounds and one assist. Covington also committed four turnovers in 30 minutes today, and over the past eight games he's averaging a modest 8.3 points (40.4% FGs, 81.8% FTs), 1.4 threes, 4.8 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.1 blocks. His usage rate is just 13.5% in that span, compared to 17.9% on the season, and we're hopeful he'll be more involved when Philly returns to action vs. Toronto on Monday. This is a good time to make some buy-low offers.

Covington generated 10 points (4-10 FG, 2-5 3Pt), five rebounds and one steal across 24 minutes in Sunday's 123-110 win over the Suns. Covington has been dealing with a finger injury as of late, but he's still gone a solid 10-for-21 from the field over the last two games. The five-year pro continues to serve as a solid complementary source of scoring on a high-powered Sixers offense while also offering strong rebounding contributions as well. Factoring in Sunday's production, he wrapped up December with averages of 13.3 points 5.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 2.2 steals and 1.0 blocks across 34.2 minutes per contest.

Robert Covington scored 15 points with 10 rebounds, three assists, two steals and one 3-pointer in 35 minutes against the Nuggets on Saturday. While he did make just 1-of-6 from deep, Covington was back to his old self and did close this game out after not closing out the last two close contests. He had right knee soreness on Christmas and a finger injury on Thursday, but this time he had a game-sealing dunk to earn a huge road win. He has regressed after a unbelievable start, but RoCo should still be a top-50 kind of a player going forward.

Covington (finger), who was listed as doubtful on the team's injury report, has been cleared to play in Saturday's game against the Nuggets, Harrison Wind of BSNDenver.com reports. Covington apparently felt better than expected during morning shootaround and will see the floor Saturday. In the five games prior to injuring his finger, he was averaging 12.0 points, 4.6 rebounds, 3.2 steals and 1.6 assists per contest.

Robert Covington (finger) is available for Saturday against the Nuggets. He was listed as doubtful in the game notes, but we all know not to trust those. Covington's finger injury is to his non-shooting hand, but it's possible it can interfere with his shooting. Plus, he's been limited by a knee injury and playing in altitude won't help either. You'll probably want to start him in season-long leagues, but he's a risky cash play in DFS.

Covington (finger) is listed as doubtful for Saturday's contest against the Nuggets. Covington recently had X-rays come back clean, though he's still in enough discomfort to probably miss Saturday's contest. As a result, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Jerryd Bayless and Dario Saric are all candidates to see expanded roles if Covington ends up on the shelf.

Robert Covington (left middle finger) is listed as doubtful in the game-notes for Saturday's matchup vs. Denver. Covington, who has been hampered recently by right knee soreness, injured the middle finger on his left hand in the third quarter of Thursday's loss to Portland. RoCo was unable to return to the game. Fortunately, the X-rays came back negative, but it appears he will miss Saturday's game. If Covington is unable to play, T.J. McConnell and Timothe Luwawu will see an uptick in playing time.

Covington's (finger) X-rays came back clean and he did some light shooting Friday, Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. He'll receive treatment Saturday to help determine his status for Saturday's game against the Nuggets. He should be considered questionable for the time being. Covington left Thursday's game against the Blazers after injuring his left middle finger, but it appears he's avoided a long-term absence. If he ends up being ruled out Saturday, Justin Anderson (shin) and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot are two candidates to see expanded roles, though Anderson is doubtful. If both Covington and Anderson end up on the shelf, Jerryd Bayless and Dario Saric may end up seeing upticks in workload as well.
