He will miss the game against the Detroit Pistons, as he recovers from his shoulder injury. He is also questionable for Tuesday’s game against the Brooklyn Nets.
There was a source that recently spoke, who said Howard would “definitely” be ready to play on Tuesday’s game. But the reality is, Howard is day-to-day until further notice, as the more shots he takes, the more he will be closer to surgery.
He recently had platelet-rich plasma therapy in his right shoulder. This is believed to be a last-ditch effort in order to avoid season-ending surgery.
