Sixers’ Robert Covington taken off court on stretcher after kick to face

This was scary.

In a tangle of bodies during a defensive play, the Sixers’ Jerami Grant went to the ground and in doing so inadvertently kicked Robert Covington in the face. Covington stayed down on the ground for a while, doctors immobilized his neck, and eventually he was taken off the court on a stretcher.

Covington did raise his arm up and point to the sky in a sign to the fans.

Grant did not return to the game due to a possible concussion, the team announced.

We hope both men are not seriously injured.
