One day after Robert Covington returned from a knee sprain - once feared as much worse - against the Cavaliers, he re-injured himself during practice.
Robert Covington did not finish practice. Aggravated right knee sprain he suffered in preseason. Status for tomorrow is uncertain. #sixers.— Derek Bodner (@DerekBodnerNBA) November 3, 2015
The 76ers haven't provided an update on the injury, which we should find out more about tomorrow. The hope here is that the injury is more of a tweak and less of potential damage to Covington's knee. Here's hoping the sprain did not worsen or (gulp) evolve into a full-out tear.
Covington returned well ahead of the maximum three weeks that his reported one-three week timeline dictated, a surprise to those that follow the team. The Sixers typically are considered overly cautious when treating injuries and prefer all of their players only play at 100%. Covington struggled in his return, missing each of his three point attempts.
