Robert Covington (knee) plans to be ready for the start of training camp.
Sir Robert Covington tore his meniscus during last season and consequently had surgery in mid-April. Training camp is coming up soon but he has had plenty of time for recovery and is a good bet to be a full participant. He will be staring down a very different season this year after his top-50 finish last year, as the Sixers add Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz and JJ Reddick to the starting lineup along with the return of usage monster, Joel Embiid. He will still be a good source of steals and triples, but don’t reach for him too early in the draft.
