Wolves' Robert Covington says knee is healthy, now working on rhythm and conditioning

In a preseason game that felt more like an organized scrimmage, you might think it would be difficult to make any judgments about the Wolves’ one-sided victory over Maccabi Haifa on Sunday.

Covington is coming off a knee injury and resulting surgery that limited him to 35 games last year — and 22 with the Wolves, after arriving in Minnesota in the trade that sent Jimmy Butler to Philadelphia.

On media day before training camp began, Covington said his knee felt good but that he would be taking things slowly; he has averaged a little more than one quarter’s worth of play through three preseason games.
