Dwight Howard News

The calendar has flipped to December and things are starting to really take shape across the NBA. With Dwight Howard out for an extended period, it seems like just a matter of time before pieces on this roster start moving.

The Wizards are back home tonight facing the Brooklyn Nets and one of their biggest fans has arrived to the arena. Curtis Kwon came all the way from Suwon, South Korea to see Dwight Howard play. Unfortunately, Howard is out but Kwon's twenty hour flight won't go to waste.

Dwight Howard underwent a lumbar microdiscectomy on Friday to alleviate a muscle injury near the buttocks and will likely miss two to three months, the Washington Wizards announced. At the recommendation of a nerve specialist, Howard opted for surgery on the L4-L5 discs in his spine. The Wizards said there were no complications during the procedure, which was performed in Marina del Rey, Calif., near Los Angeles.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Wizards center Dwight Howard is expected to miss two to three months after undergoing spinal surgery to relieve pain in his glutes.

The Sixers (15-8) are hosting the Wizards, who haven't won a game in Philadelphia since the 2015-16 season, tonight at the Wells Fargo Center. The Wizards will be without their starting center Dwight Howard (gluteal injury). Thomas Bryant, who recorded his first career start on Nov. 20, will start in his place.
