Washington Post—January 21, 2011
Just a couple of weeks ago, the Washington Wizards practiced for the first time with a full roster.
Injuries, however, are beginning to mount again. Swingman Josh Howard is not mending as quickly as he hoped from a sore left knee.
Howard is at least several weeks from getting back onto the court as he heals from tendinitis in his left knee that flared up on Jan. 5 in a 109-97 loss to Philadelphia at Wells Fargo Center. Howard played 12 minutes and missed all three of his field goal attempts before leaving for good.
The former all-star with the Dallas Mavericks since has missed the past seven games.
"It's the same thing it's always been as far as his knee," Coach Flip Saunders said.
Howard received treatment on his knee on Monday at Hospital for Special Surgery in New York.
