  • Howard (back) rejoined the Wizards on Tuesday, three weeks after undergoing surgery, Bob Trosset of NBC Sports Washington reports. "Physically, I'm a lot better than I was before the surgery," Howard said. "The nine games I played, I basically played on one leg. So, you know, I'm just happy that that's out the way and I can rehab and get ready for the second half of the season." Howard is expected to miss at least another month -- and likely more -- as he recovers, and said Tuesday that he's essentially limited to walking for the time being. The center, who also underwent surgery in 2012 to repair a herniated disc, plans on doing most of his rehab in his native Atlanta. The hope is that he'll return to basketball activities sometime before the All-Star break.

  • Wizards' Dwight Howard: Likely out 2-to-3 months
    By RotoWire Staff

    Howard will undergo surgery to address the pain from his gluteal injury, and the typical recovery time in 2-to-3 months, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. It was reported Thursday that Howard was expected to undergo the procedure, but it is now confirmed with an estimated timetable. The Wizards will likely provide an exact recovery timetable following the surgery, but it can be safely assumed that Howard is in line to miss a large portion of the regular season. Without Howard, Washington will likely continue starting Thomas Bryant, but head coach Scott Brooks has been featuring small-ball lineups as of late and is expected to continue doing so.

  • Wizards' Dwight Howard: Will likely require surgery
    By RotoWire Staff

    Howard (lower body) is expected to undergo surgery to give him much-needed relief from a lingering gluteal injury, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports. Howard met with a nerve specialist in Los Angeles to determine what has been causing him pain through the first few months of the season, and it appears surgery may be required to address the issue. It's uncertain as to when he might undergo surgery and how long it would sideline him for, and the big man might seek a second opinion on a course of treatment, per Wojnarowski. More news on Howard's availability moving forward should come in the near future, although it seems as though he'll continue to experience pain and discomfort until the procedure is done.

  • Wizards' Dwight Howard: Seeing nerve specialist
    By RotoWire Staff

    Howard will meet with a nerve specialist in Los Angeles over his piriformis injury, Candace Buckner of The Washington Post reports. Howard missed the first seven games of the year due to lower back pain, which has now caused him to miss the past four games and is being noted as gluteal soreness. More information should emerge after Howard sees a specialist, but he's already been ruled out for Wednesday's game at New Orleans and Friday's game at Philadelphia. While Howard remains out, Thomas Bryant is expected to continue starting at center.

  • Wizards' Dwight Howard: Not traveling with team
    By RotoWire Staff

    Howard (lower body) will not travel with the Wizards on their upcoming two-game roadtrip, Candace Buckner of the Washington Post reports. This doesn't come as much of a surprise, as Howard continues to nurse a lower body issue that's kept him out of the last five games. He'll miss Wednesday's game in New Orleans and Friday's game in Philadelphia, meaning his next chance to play will come Saturday, when the Wizards play host to Brooklyn.
