Dwight Howard is hurt again. And it’s the same injury that sidelined him earlier in the season. A torn labrum forced him to miss three games. During the contest between the Los Angeles Lakers and Memphis Grizzlies, Howard got hurt in the first half and was forced to miss the rest of the game.
The Lakers are calling it a re-aggravation of his shoulder injury. He is going to have more tests on Thursday and then they’ll make a determination on how to proceed.
If Howard needs surgery, he will undoubtedly miss the rest of the season. The Lakers and Howard could also opt to wait it out and hope it strengthens with some time off.
In the meantime, expect Pau Gasol to start and play a lot more minutes.
