Robert Covington said he’s been playing 5-on-5 all month, and that he was medically cleared from his right knee surgery back in July.
Covington’s recovery was obviously not the priority in a busy offseason for Philadelphia, but he’s a big part of their team and an even better fantasy play. He appears no worse for wear following the April surgery to repair a meniscus tear and should start at the three this season. He’ll be a great source of swipes and should chip in with helpful numbers across the board, making him a fine mid-round selection.
