Dwight Howard Re-Aggravated Right Shoulder Injury

Things went from bad with Dwight Howard hurting his shoulder once again, to awful as the Los Angeles Lakers collapsed in Phoenix and lost to the bottom-feeding Suns. Howard continues to insist that he doesn’t need surgery, and vows to play through the pain. Per the OC Register: “Just got to deal with it as much as I can,’ he said late Wednesday night after the Lakers’ loss to Phoenix. Howard said that the shoulder pain on previous occasions has abated the day after, which he hopes will be the case again. Accordingly, the Lakers are expecting him play Friday in Minnesota, and Kobe Bryant said the labrum issue is one that will go on all season but with which Howard can learn to deal. ‘I’m going to try as much as I can, but I don’t want to cause more damage to my shoulder,’ Howard said. Asked about possibly resting the shoulder for a week, which he did after the initial injury, Howard said: ‘I don’t want to, but we’ll see.’ [...] Howard said: ‘I won’t lose my spirit, and I’ve just got to continue to do whatever I can to get my shoulder strong.’”

    Man…the guy doesn’t get injured for 99% of his time with the Magic, and then turns into Greg Oden once he’s a Laker.

    that’s not how Karma works.

    He’s injured every time the Lakers lose.

    true, but what is to be expected when a team trades for someone who is not even done with rehabbing after back surgery

    But he did, I really expected a lapse for the Lakers but only a slight one that would have them barely escaping with a W. I really think for his sake he needs to do his body a favor and rest up.

    So who here like me is anticipating Curry’s inclusion into the All-Star game. Might as well replace a center with a point guard if the East is replacing a point guard with a center….oh my bad make that a “front court” player smh.
