Robert Covington scored 22 points in Saturday's loss to the Raptors, finishing with eight rebounds, one assist and two steals.
Covington took a team-high 20 field goal attempts and converted on eight of the them. Normally considered a defensive specialist it was nice to see Covington so active on the offensive end. His will continue to provide a modest amount of points, rebounds, threes, and steals for fantasy owners.

The trade market for Robert Covington is starting to heat up with the Rockets, Mavs and Sixers as known suitors, per Shams Charania.
Despite some knee concerns lingering in the background, Covington is an occasionally elite wing defender and a fantastic floor-spacer who can lift a team without dominating touches. It's no surprise that contending teams are interested, and fantasy GMs should feel relatively safe that RoCo's value will hold steady wherever he may end up. It's also not a pure salary dump situation, as the Wolves like what Covington does and aren't so much looking to trade him as they are exploring offers, which are sure to improve as the deadline approaches.

Robert Covington drained four 3-pointers on Wednesday, ending with 14 points, seven boards, two steals and one block.
This stat line is very on-brand with what we expect from RoCo. He gives you steals, blocks and threes. He has snuck his way into the top-40 by putting up performances like this.

Robert Covington racked up the cash counters against the Thunder on Monday with four triples, three steals and a block to go with 18 points, four rebounds and two assists in 30 minutes.
Covington had a slow start to the season and hasn't made as much of a splash in fantasy leagues as he did in Philadelphia, but he's crept his way into the top-50/40 (8-cat/9-cat) once again. His value is mainly based on his steals, threes and blocks. If he's rostered by someone that doesn't appreciate him, swoop in and grab Covington.

Robert Covington was amazing on the defensive end of the floor on Saturday, collecting six steals and blocking two shots, adding 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting with seven rebouns, two assists and one triple.
His defense was there but the Wolves' didn't have enough offensive punch to outgun the Rockets on the other end. RoCo is an intriguing player to watch heading into the trade deadline as he might be playing impressive 3-and-D wearing a different jersey before the season is over.

We witnessed a classic Robert Covington performance versus the Cavs on Sunday, 15 points, four 3-pointers, four rebounds, four steals and one turnover.
Covington has been fantastic and has been surging up the rankings over the past month. If his hot play got him shipped to a contender who is not resting him down the stretch that would be all the better. The Wolves have recovered from there major losing streak and appear to be unleashing him completely for the time being. Just keep knocking on wood.

Robert Covington looked like his old self in Thursday's 99-84 win over the Warriors, scoring 20 points with 10 rebounds, two steals, two blocks and four 3-pointers.
Alarm bells were ringing when Covington played just 12 minutes against the Warriors on December 23 but he's been on a tear since then, scoring at least 14 points in four of those five while totaling eight blocks, 10 steals and 13 3-pointers. RoCo has top-30 value in his last five contests and it looks like he's back in the saddle as one of fantasy's most overlooked stars.

Robert Covington went to the locker room while holding his hand in the first quarter on Monday but returned to the bench a few moments later.
Hopefully it's a minor issue for Covington. We'll see if he gets back into the game shortly. The Wolves are already missing multiple big men tonight, so they could really use his size and defense.

Robert Covington came alive on Thursday, producing 18 points on 8-of-19 shooting, adding eight rebounds, one assist, two 3s and two blocks.
RoCo popped off again after a two-game quiet stretch. His defense was invaluable for the Wolves in slogging their way to this win. His name has been mentioned in trade rumors but until something actually takes place, keep him slotted in your lineups given his role with the team.

Robert Covington only logged 12 minutes of action on Monday, scoring four points on 1-of-3 shooting while adding four rebounds and a block.
Covington only logged 12 minutes in this game and didn't have any injuries that were noted so it looks like Coach Saunders just decided to rest his guys.

Robert Covington was off his game in Saturday's loss to the Blazers, recording just three points on 1-of-6 shooting with five rebounds, one 3, one steal and one block.
This is a low-end line coming from RoCo and is a disappointing one to swallow. He's been on a bit of a slump over his last few games, opening a buy-low window. That said, offer with caution as he's not exactly known for his durability.

Robert Covington was moved back to the starting lineup on Friday and came through with 10 points, six rebounds and two steals in 23 minutes.
The nominal role doesn't matter but the minutes sure do. We're going to chalk this one up to Ryan Saunders tinkering with the rotation since all 12 Wolves played tonight, but it's something to keep in mind for a player who has a history of knee troubles.
