Robert Covington has been cleared to return and will play on Friday against the Thunder, per Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia.
Covington hurt himself landing on a metal object in the stands but didn’t miss too much time. It’ll be interesting to see how the rotation shakes out going forward. Dario Saric probably slides back over to the four spot but Richaun Holmes has done nothing but impress whenever he gets meaningful run. He’s looking like the odd man out for right now but his talent is just too obvious to ignore. The Sixers might keep him in a bench role but his abilities and upside make him someone worth owning in 12-team leagues. Holmes doesn’t need much time to be effective — he just can’t fall completely by the wayside.
