Robert Covington is expected to play in Game 4 against the Los Angeles Lakers on Thursday, per Tim MacMahon of ESPN.

Covington was forced to exit Game 3 after a scary collision with Lakers’ big man Anthony Davis. Covington went to the locker room and did not return.

As MacMahon reports, Covington did not suffer a broken nose and passed the concussion protocol test of the NBA.

The Lakers lead the series 2-1. Game 4 is on Thursday.
