76ers' Robert Covington helped off court after crashing into stands

Philadelphia 76ers forward Robert Covington was helped off the court by two teammates after he crashed into the stands alongside the Cleveland Cavaliers' bench with 1:08 remaining in the fourth quarter Saturday night.

Covington was diving to save a loose ball.

He walked on his own down the tunnel to the locker room.

Covington did not speak after the 105-98 loss at Cleveland, as he was having his lower back attended to in the trainer's room.

Sixers coach Brett Brown did not provide an update on Covington's injury. Asked if Covington would play Sunday against the New Orleans Pelicans, Brown said, "I can't assume anything, but it would seem like he's a no-go."

ESPN's Dave McMenamin contributed to this report.
