Dwight Howard (back) out at least through All-Star break

Dwight Howard has been out for two months following back surgery. He is expected to remain out at least through the All-Star break before he is re-evaluated.

Fantasy Impact

It has been a lost season for Howard with the Wizards playing in just nine games. He is expected to be able to play again at some point this season but that time won't come until sometime after the All-Star break.

Dwight Howard (back) making early progress after surgery

Dwight Howard is "pain-free" just three weeks after having a lumbar microdiscectomy procedure on November 30.

Fantasy Impact

Howard is still probably at least a month or more away from a potential return to the court but he is making good strides early in his recovery. The Wizards will continue to deploy a small-ball lineup with Howard out.

Dwight Howard (back) will miss at least two months

Dwight Howard will undergo a surgical procedure to alleviate pain from a glute injury and is expected to be sidelined up to two months. Thomas Bryant has been starting in his place and we expect to see more Markieff Morris at the five. Ian Mahinmi and Jason Smith should also crack the rotation.

Fantasy Impact

This is a major blow for fantasy owners who drafted Howard as he was expected to really take a step forward with a solid supporting cast around him of John Wall and Bradley Beal. So far, Howard hasn't been productive and now will miss significant time to a body part which has caused him to miss significant time in the past. Fantasy owners are probably dumping Howard instead of stashing him on your IR spot.

Dwight Howard (glute) may undergo surgery

Dwight Howard is expected to undergo surgery to repair his injured glute and this could cause him to miss games all season. Thomas Bryant has started in place of Howard although you would have to figure Ian Mahinmi sees some minutes as well.

Fantasy Impact

With Howard out for the foreseeable future, Markieff Morris benefits the most with this news while Thomas Bryant becomes a cheap value play in DFS. Kelly Oubre and Otto Porter also get a boost and could see a bump in the rebound column.
