On December 1st, Netease Sports announced:
According to the famous Shams-Sharanian journalist, Wizards Center Dwight Howard will be operated on the back, and the recovery period is expected to be within 8 weeks.
According to reports, Howard will work in the L4 / L5 position of the spine, and Yahoo Chris Hayes has discovered that the source says Howard will succumb to gluteal surgery, the estimated recovery time is 2-3 months, but if everything goes well , Howard can come back sooner.
This summer, Howard was first traded on "Nets" by Hornets, and the two sides agreed to redeem. Howard joined Wizards after being recruited from Wall and signed a mini-middle-class deal for a year from 5 years. Howard, who has been changed in the number 21 shirt, missed the first seven regular seasons due to a back injury at the start of the match. He then decided to return, played 9 games and had 3 doubles, an average of 12.8 points per game in 25.6 minutes. Results 9.2 rebounds. However, in the match against the Blazers on November 18, he again appeared due to a back injury. He played only 7 and a half minutes, then again missed 5 matches.
Due to a violation of the back injury, Howard traveled several times to Los Angeles to seek an expert diagnosis of the piriformism, but eventually he had to choose a surgical intervention. Formerly from the missiles, he stopped due to a back injury and a basket that survived the attack. After losing his dominance, since then, he was unable to return to the top, and was also caused by a back injury.
It is also a big hit for Wizards: they are only 8 wins and 13 losses, they are in a crisis, once exposed to the intention to sell the team, and now Howard will be hurt for a long time, the current Wizards in the central position is the basic salary of Thomas – Bryant, maybe this injury and surgery will force wizards to make some moves in advance.
