Josh Howard’s Injury Problems Continue

It was a bad nights for the Mavericks in San Antonio on multiple fronts: “The game was bad enough, but the news also was grim on Josh Howard, who left the game with 8:46 to go in the third quarter. It was his third game back after off-season ankle surgery. ‘He was limping, so we took him out,’ coach Rick Carlisle said. ‘It’s the first back-to-back [games for Howard]. We’ll evaluate it and treat it accordingly. He’s had some soreness. It’s no secret. There’s going to be times when there’s soreness, and we have to get him out of the game.’ Asked when he knew he was done for the night, Howard said: ‘When he took me out, pretty much.’ Howard called the situation a slow process to get back to complete health. ‘I’m going to go with the unexpected speed bump right now,’ he said when asked if it was a setback. ‘I just got to keep working toward getting healthier.”‘

    All I know is that in two of the games Howard played the Mavs scored 129 and 121… that probably wont happen all year but I think he will help. This team can be really good and really deep if they are all healthy

    This is ridiculous. He was clearly limping in the HOUSTON game, 2 days earlier. WTF is he playing for atm, when he’s obviously not healthy?
