Washington Wizards Injuries: Josh Howard To Miss At Least Two More Weeks

Josh Howard spent all summer battling back from a torn ACL he suffered last February. Sadly, for his sake, it looks like that rehab may have been for naught. Howard was sent back to the injury shelf a couple weeks ago when that same knee swelled up, and is now going to miss even more time. 

Wizards coach Flip Saunders said Howard will miss another two weeks with soreness in his left knee, the same knee that was operated on last winter. Via Samuel Chamberlain of TBD:

Howard played in just eight games this season, after playing in just four games for the Wizards last season. He, of course, came over in the Caron Butler/Brendan Haywood/DeShawn Stevenson trade last February.

Rashard Lewis has been starting at small forward in Howard's place, but he's also nursing some knee pain and may only play in one of the Wizards' next two home games this weekend, according to Craig Stouffer of the Washington Examiner.
