Lakers News: Dwight Howard Out Tuesday Night Vs. Nets

The Los Angeles Lakers continue to deal with injury problems in the second half of the 2012-13 NBA season as Dwight Howard struggles to return after re-aggravating a shoulder injury in the loss to the Phoenix Suns in the first game of a this seven-game road trip.

Howard was re-evaluated for the injury and was listed as day-to-day. The consensus was that Howard would be able to return on Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets at the Barclay’s Center, but it appears that won’t be the case according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com via Twitter:

Howard’s presence in the paint will be sorely missed by the Lakers on Tuesday with the team going up against Brook Lopez and company. The Lakers were able to get the best of the Nets in their first meeting earlier in the season, but without Howard in the paint they’ll be at a disadvantage against first-time All-Star Lopez.

Metta World Peace will also be out of the lineup on Tuesday night due to a suspension for a punch thrown at Brandon Knight of the Detroit Pistons.

    LA have more than enough talent to win this game: Nash, Jamison, Clark, Kobe, Pau if they move the ball, make everyone get involved in both ends and play within their comfort zones. Simplicity. Using their huge talent and making everyone build up the chemistry by sharing responsibilities: trust.
