Robert Covington has been working in a private gym in Texas, after the NBA halt the season due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Covington talked to Fox 26 Houston’s Mark Berman about a wide range of topics including the timetable of a return to basketball.
“It’s not going to take me long. I typically don’t get out of shape that easily. To have been a month and a half, almost, I still feel game ready. I still feel like I can go play my normal minutes. I might be more tired, and my recovery might be a little bit longer, but I still feel like I could do the same,” Covington said on how much time he will need to get back on court.
Covington played in just 14 games with the Houston Rockets, after the Timberwolves traded the “3&D” wing to the Rockets in February.
He is averaging 12.8 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks in 32.6 minutes per game as the team’s starter forward in the small-ball lineup of Mike D’Antoni.
