Robert Covington underwent surgery Thursday for a finger injury first suffered in late December.
The procedure was done to repair the extensor tendon in Covington's left middle finger, which he injured on Dec. 28 against the Trail Blazers in Portland. He left the game early (see story) but did not miss time after that.
Covington, who has been cleared to use his hand, will wear a splint during the recovery process. His finger will be evaluated in approximately two-to-three weeks to determine when he can resume basketball activities.
Covington averaged 12.6 points, 5.4 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game in his fourth season with the Sixers. For more on Covington's year, click here.
