Robert Covington returned from his lengthy absence due to knee issues and played 12 minutes in a start against the Suns, but after the game he acknowledged that he needs more time to return to his old form.
“I ain’t my old self just yet. Once I get in shape, then I’ll be my old self. Once I get my legs under me, get a good feel and a good rhythm, old Cov will be back.” RoCo is coming off an extended absence from basketball-related activities, so it makes sense to seem him struggle with conditioning. The Wolves are likely to take it easy with their talented forward but a slow start to the season wouldn’t surprise us.
