The Los Angeles Lakers are struggling once again with one of the better team in the Western Conference on Wednesday. The Memphis Grizzlies went into halftime with a nine-point lead and appear to have a grip on this game with the Lakers on their heals.
Along with struggling once again, the Lakers will be without Dwight Howard for the rest of the game due to the center re-aggravating his shoulder injury according to Mike Trudell of Lakers.com via Twitter:
Dwight Howard re-aggravated his right shoulder injury and will not return tonight. He’ll be re-evaluated in Los Angeles tomorrow.

Howard injured his shoulder in the loss to the Los Angeles Clippers a few weeks ago and returned against the Cleveland Cavaliers last week. Howard hasn’t been bothered by the injury since returning, but was clearly in pain against the Grizzlies on Wednesday and will be re-evaluated back in Los Angeles on Thursday.
