Covington (ankle) was recalled from the G League on Saturday, but he will still remain sidelined for Sunday's matchup against the Wizards.

Covington practiced with the G League recently, which is an encouraging sign and one of the last steps in his recovery. While he won't return over the weekend, it seems Covington will make his way back on the court soon. His next chance to play arrives Tuesday against the Thunder.

My playoffs started already last week - playoff matchup go for 2 weeks and Im in a hole right now after winning 17 straight H2H in the regular season to finish with a 17-1 record and the 1st by a mile. With Leonard, George, Bledsoe, Covington all missing games, I desperately need production and face the decision the drop the lord today simply because I need production and cant wait for him for another 4 days... Its sad :(

Ryan Saunders indicated during a recent interview that Robert Covington (knee) still is not close to making it back to the court.

Advice: "We initially probably thought Robert was going to be back a little bit earlier just in terms of timetable," Saunders admitted. "It’s continuing to see just how his knee responds. That’s the big thing, [for him] to respond with contact, with longer durations going up and down." It sounds like RoCo didn't respond well to the recent G-League practice, and Saunders added there isn't necessarily a "final hurdle" in Covington's recovery. He's been out for two months, and given that he's still without a timetable, owners should probably move on at this point.

 

The lord hath forsaken us :(

Saunders just said a coupled days ago he expects him back this week. The quote seems to be talking about why he didn't come back earlier, and roto is jumping the gun and saying he didn't respond well to the g league practice.

I took it as he would be back this week but still not ready for games. So basically just back with team and practicing/working out  etc.  I never once read anywhere that he would be back playing in games this week. I think the confusion was basically coach was referring to hell be back from G-league and joining team but not playing in games, which is where Rotoworld made the mistake of implying he'd be playing in games.

lol that's true also. basically roto needs to stop assuming things

 

Edit: actually in this video https://youtu.be/Zy5dxsHWoGk?t=139, saunders says "at some point this week, hopefully we'll see him in action". who knows what that means lol

Yeah my interpretation in that quote was he'll see him in action practicing with the team so the coach could see with his own eyes how he looks. But who knows really what he meant.
