VIDEO: Dwight Howard aggravates right shoulder injury again
Just when things were looking up for the Lakers, Dwight Howard appeared to re-injure his right shoulder.
In the fourth quarter against the Suns on Wednesday, Howard gathered an offensive rebound and exploded up for a putback, but Shannon Brown swiped down hard at the ball. Immediately Howard grabbed at his right shoulder, sitting down in pain and he left the game.
He remained on the bench icing the shoulder and did not re-enter the game.
Howard tore his right labrum in a similar manner against the Clippers a few weeks ago. He missed a week witht he injury, then re-aggravated it against Memphis, but continued to play. This latest injury could force him to miss more time as well.
"My understanding is, it hurts, it'll go away in a couple of days and he can play," said Laker coach Mike D'Antoni after the game, via CBSSports.com's Ken Berger.
