Howards back injury is an old problem that has plagued him for many seasons. He has had surgery before. He has spent most of the season in recuperation, but in recent non-confrontational training, he has pulled his tendon again, which is worse.
The news was leaked to the media today by Wizard Coach Brooks, who said Howards recovery progress had suffered some minor setbacks. Hes been training in Washington, D.C., all without confrontation, but he pulled his tendon a few days ago, so the injury happened again and again.
Howard has played only nine games this season, averaging 12.8 points and 9.2 rebounds per game, with a shooting percentage of 62.3%. In fact, according to the data alone, Howards ability is quite good, but unfortunately, his injury problem has not been solved, so he is gradually forgotten by the public.
Howard, an eight-time All-Star player, signed a two-year, $10.9 million contract with the Wizards last summer. Next season, his contract has player options. That is to say, he can jump out of the contract ahead of time and become a full-fledged free agent. But considering Howards condition and injuries, its hard to say which other teams will want him.
At present, the Wizards are 26-37, ranked 11th in the east, this season and the playoffs are basically no chance, they introduced Howard also once hoped that he would strengthen the teams interior, icing on the cake, but because of Howards own injuries, coupled with Walters injuries, the Wizards this season is basically abandoned.
