Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard is out for Sunday's game against the host Detroit Pistons because if his sore right shoulder. Howard also missed Friday night's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He went back to Los Angeles to receive platelet-rich plasma treatments but returned to the team Sunday.

When you are a big man in the NBA, you will consistently take a beating. It just comes with the territory of banging around under the basket. But when you are a liability at the free throw line, many teams decide to just take their chances and foul a big man and deal with the results at the free throw line. Lakers center Dwight Howard only shoots 49% at the free throw line. So...
Los Angeles Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak said the team is "very" happy with coach Mike D'Antoni and does not plan to make any trades.

It has been discussed ad nauseum that things aren’t working in Los Angeles for the Lakers this season. And Steve Nash has gone as far as to say that things probably won’t get much better in LA this season.
Lost in the Lakers struggles is the fact that Pau Gasol seems to be the odd man out in this new regime of the team. While Kobe, Nash, and Howard have logged many minutes in...
Kobe put on a second-half show to led the Lakers to a win tonight
No Dwight Howard, no Metta World Peace, no problem. After a third-quarter surge by the home-team Nets to take back the lead, the Lakers--led by a heating-up Kobe Bryant--edged Brooklyn, their 10th-straight win over the Nets. Sweeping the season series, LA led by nine points at half before Brooklyn...
We showed you the video yesterday of the punch Metta World Peace threw at Brandon Knight. If you missed it: Now it appears the league has taken their stance. League suspends Metta World Peace one game for uppercut to Brandon Knight. He is out vs. Nets, as is Dwight Howard (shoulder). – @basketballtalk
