Philadelphia 76ers forward Robert Covington underwent surgery to repair a tendon on his left index finger, the team announced.
According to the Sixers, Covington can use his hand immediately, though the finger will require a splint. He will be reevaluated in 2-3 weeks.
Covington, 27, averaged 12.6 points and 5.4 rebounds in 80 games as the Sixers’ starting small forward this past season.
The Sixers are said to be closely monitoring the situations of Oklahoma City’s Paul George, San Antonio’s Kawhi Leonard and Cleveland’s LeBron James in hopes of landing one via trade/free agency.
