Dwight Howard has recently been bothered by a shoulder injury, which forced him leave a couple of games early, as well as sit out 4 contests, including the Lakers’ last game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

According to LA Times, Howard has received PRP injections in his shoulder, which should aid the healing process.

He is expected to give it a go against the Pistons today, who will most likely be without newly acquired Jose Calderon, due to visa issues.
