Timberwolves Waive Josh Howard, Who Needs Season-Ending Surgery

8297194This is a really tough one for Josh Howard.


NBA: Utah Jazz at Minnesota TimberwolvesThe Wolves had to waive Howard because that was the only way they could open up a roster spot.

Minnesota signed Josh Howard in mid-November due to the Wolves needing more bodies, especially in the small forward position since Chase Budinger had to have knee surgery, knocking him out until around February. As mentioned, the injury occurred in their game against the New Orleans Hornets.

With Howard gone and Budinger still out, they may have to move Derrick Williams to the small forward spot or find another temporary solution. The Timberwolves have been ravaged by injuries this entire season. Ricky Rubio just returned, who just recovered from a torn ACL himself. Kevin Love was also out for the first few weeks with a broken hand; he made a surprise return on November 21. Other players that missed action due to injury include Jose Juan Barea, Nikola Pekovic, and Brandon Roy.

That was the second time Howard tore his ACL in three years (he tore his ACL when he was playing with the Wizards in February of 2010). It’s really been a tough road for Howard. Hopefully, he can bounce back from this setback.

Howard hasn’t been healthy in the last three seasons as he’s only played 96 games total in that period of time. The Dallas Mavericks drafted him late in the first round of the 2003 NBA Draft, where he became an all-star and was recognized as the second best player on the team (Dirk Nowitzki was there, of course). He also played for the Washington Wizards and the Utah Jazz. Howard played 11 games with the Minnesota Timberwolves, starting in four of them. He averaged 6.7 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. Overall, Josh Howard has career numbers of 14.3 points and 5.7 rebounds.

Speedy recovery, Josh.
