The Philadelphia 76ers’ injury misery extended Friday when the team announced both Jahlil Okafor and Robert Covington would be out for the rest of the season. An MRI this week revealed what the team termed a “slight” meniscus tear in Covington’s right knee. No decision has been made on whether Covington will have surgery as he researches treatment options, a team spokesman said.
Okafor has dealt with intermittent right knee soreness since needing surgery for his own meniscus tear last March. He’d missed the previous four games with right knee soreness after it flared up during a game in Oklahoma City on March 22. He hasn’t had an MRI.
