Dwight Howard has suffered a serious injury that will impact fantasy basketball owners greatly. Howard has a torn labrum in his right shoulder. The Los Angeles Lakers are saying he will be looked at again in another week.
How long will Dwight Howard be out?
Torn labrums are tricky. Sometimes, they require surgery. If that is the case with Dwight Howard, he’d miss the rest of the season. Even without surgery, he could be out a couple months.
The absolute quickest Dwight Howard may be back is two to three weeks. However, that’s if everything goes right and he has no setbacks.
If Dwight Howard is on your fantasy basketball team, it’d be a good idea to prepare as if he’s going to be gone for a while. If you can trade him, it would probably be a good idea since there’s a chance he’ll be out for the rest of the year.
