Robert Covington underwent successful surgery on the extensor tendon in his left middle finger on Thursday and will be reevaluated in two-to-three weeks.
Covington suffered the injury on December 28 and played through it the rest of the season and postseason. He can use his left hand immediately and will wear a splint while the finger recovers. Since Covington suffered the injury during the first half of the season, did not see a drastic change in his shooting numbers and did not miss a game due to this injury it seems to be minor. His play did falter in the playoffs but it would be surprising if it was due to the finger injury unless it got noticeably worse. RoCo is known to go on hot and cold stretches but should be just fine for next season.
