Things will go from bad to worse if his shoulder injury is anything serious. Here is what Dwight had to say.
“I would like to play but I just want to make sure that my shoulder is good to go,” Howard said after the game. “I don’t want to injure myself to where I’m out for the season, so, I just got to go and see what happens at the MRI.”
“It wasn’t as bad as last game, but like I said, I don’t want to injure it to the point where I can’t play,” Howard said.
