Robert Covington will miss the rest of the season for the Sixers after an MRI revealed a slight tear of the lateral meniscus. It's the same injury that ended Joel Embiid's season. Speaking of injured Philadelphia players, Jahlil Okafor has also been ruled out for the rest of the year due to a troublesome right knee injury.

Meanwhile, DeMar DeRozan continues to carry the Raptors, who have now won seven of their last 10 games.
