Top Robert Covington News

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Expected to enter rotation

    Coach Tyronn Lue said Covington will "get an opportunity" in Thursday's Game 3 versus the Suns, Justin Russo of the 'Clip & Roll' podcast reports.

    Covington failed to get off the bench in Games 1 and 2 despite being healthy but is expected to see action in Game 3 with Kawhi Leonard (knee) inactive. Considering coach Lue also indicated Marcus Morris would break into the rotation Thursday, it's unclear how large of a workload Covington will handle, making him a risky fantasy option.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Fails to score in five minutes

    Covington contributed two rebounds, one assist and one block across five minutes during Sunday's 119-114 victory over the Suns.

    Covington was barely in the rotation Sunday, reversing the recent trend that has seen him up his playing time. While he is likely to continue seeing meaningful minutes, his nightly role could be determined by whether others around him are getting the job done.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Catches fire from three

    Covington supplied 27 points (9-10 FG, 7-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, three steals and two assists across 32 minutes during Wednesday's 141-132 victory over the Grizzlies.

    The scoring and three-point totals were season highs for Covington, and along with the near-perfect shooting from the field plus the production on the defensive end, it translated to his best fantasy line of the campaign. He received a boost in playing time with Kawhi Leonard (personal) out and Marcus Morris (COVID-19 protocols) sitting out, and while the minutes and efficiency won't be replicable moving forward, Covington may have at least earned himself a permanent spot in head coach Tyronn Lue's rotation on the heels of Wednesday's performance.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Gets 11 minutes in win

    Covington finished Monday's 124-112 win over the Bulls with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist in 11 minutes off the bench

    Covington received double-digit minutes for the second game in a row, but he wasn't able to build on the well-rounded 11-point, two-steal, one-block line he provided his last time out in Saturday's blowout loss to the Pelicans. He was helped by the Clippers being without Paul George (leg), Norman Powell (shoulder) and Marcus Morris (illness) on Monday, but L.A. could get both Powell and Morris back as soon as its next game Wednesday in Memphis. After Monday's contest, head coach Tyronn Lue told Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times that Nicolas Batum would serve as the Clippers' starting power forward over Marcus Morris for the rest of the season, but Lue didn't specify whether Morris or Covington will stick in the rotation as Batum's primary backup.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Rare appearance in tough loss

    Covington logged 11 points (4-7 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound, one assist and three steals over 23 minutes during Saturday's 113-108 loss to the Magic.

    Covington saw playing time for the first time in almost two weeks, as he was called upon with Kawhi Leonard (right knee injury management) given the night off. While Covington was able to rack up 11 points to go with three steals, given he had not even been in the rotation prior to Saturday, there is no reason to pursue him on the fantasy waiver wire.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Will suit up against Chicago

    Covington (personal) is available for Tuesday's game versus the Bulls, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Covington has been upgraded from questionable to available Tuesday after missing the previous two games due to personal reasons. With Marcus Morris (ribs) out, Covington will likely receive extended minutes against Chicago.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Questionable Tuesday

    Covington (personal) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Law Murray of The Athletic reports.

    Covington has missed two consecutive contests due to personal reasons but has a chance at playing Tuesday. If he does return, he could be in line for more minutes if Marcus Morris (ribs) sits.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Still out Sunday

    Covington (personal) has been ruled out for Sunday's matchup against Cleveland, Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Covington will miss back-to-back games due to personal reasons. His next chance to suit up will arrive Tuesday in Chicago. Kawhi Leonard (knee) and Paul George (knee) are also out, while Luke Kennard (calf), Reggie Jackson (Achilles) and Marcus Morris (ribs) are questionable, so the Clippers are in danger of being extremely shorthanded against Cleveland.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Out Saturday

    Covington is out Saturday against the Hawks due to a personal matter, Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.com reports.

    Covington has made his way back into the rotation lately, appearing in nine straight games and averaging 5.9 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 1.2 blocks in 18.2 minutes. However, his streak of appearances will end Saturday. In his absence, coach Tyronn Lue could give more minutes to Amir Coffey and Nicolas Batum.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Turns back clock in win

    Covington posted 13 points (5-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), seven rebounds, one assist, three blocks and two steals over 21 minutes during Thursday's 138-100 victory over the Spurs.

    Covington was feeling nostalgic in the win, delivering easily his best performance of the season. Don't look now, but Covington has played at least 19 minutes in three consecutive games, serving up a combined 12 steals and blocks. While there is no certainly about his role moving forward, he could very well be worth a flier for anyone desperate for defensive production.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Uptick in minutes Sunday

    Covington produced three points (1-4 FG, 1-3 3Pt), five rebounds, six assists, one block and two steals across 21 minutes during Sunday's 112-98 victory over the Mavericks.

    Covington logged at least 20 minutes for the first time in more than a week and chipped in across the board. It's hard to get a good read on his exact role, given his playing seems to fluctuate wildly from one game to the next. With so much uncertainty, it's hard to treat him as anything more than a potential defensive streaming option.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Held in check Tuesday

    Covington supplied no points (0-2 FG, 0-1 3Pt), two rebounds and one assist over seven minutes during Tuesday's 120-110 loss to the 76ers.

    Covington had played double-digit minutes in five of the Clippers' last six games and recorded at least eight points and five rebounds in each of those appearances. However, he saw decreased playing time Tuesday and could not generate much production. As long as the Clippers are at full strength in the frontcourt, Covington isn't guaranteed to see meaningful minutes regularly.

  • Clippers' Robert Covington: Strong performance in loss

    Covington produced 12 points (3-7 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 5-6 FT), six rebounds, one assist and three steals across 25 minutes during Friday's 128-115 loss to the Timberwolves.

    Covington had his best game of the season Friday, taking advantage of the fact the Clippers were without a couple of key pieces. While he obviously still has the ability to contribute on both ends of the floor, he literally isn't an every-night part of the rotation. He is a player to keep an eye on moving forward, although based on how he is currently being used, there is little reason to think he will move into the standard league discussion soon.
