Robert Covington is questionable for Wednesday's game after sitting out Tuesday's practice with a sore back.
Covington has been on fire so far, putting up game-changing numbers for fantasy owners in steals, blocks and 3-pointers. What else is new. He's Philly's defensive linchpin and his absence would really hurt the offense in terms of spacing, as their current starting five already has some issues in that regard. If RoCo is forced to sit this one out we'd look for more J.J. Redick and Landry Shamet, and if Wilson Chandler is healthy enough he'll see a big spike in minutes. Other than those three the Sixers might need to use some patchwork to fill Covington's shoes.
