Josh Howard out for season with torn ACL

Quote:
Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that guard/forward Josh Howard has a torn ACL in his left knee and will miss the remainder of the 2010-11 season. Howard suffered the injury in last night’s game vs. Chicago at the 4:23 mark of the first quarter.

In four games (three starts) for Washington this season, Howard averaged 14.5 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. No timetable has been announced for Howard’s recovery.

Damn that's bad luck. On the bright side, better pick.

Does anyone think that the Wiz will pick up his player option for next season?

If he can rehab his knee nicely the raps should sign him to a 10 day at the beginning of next season. If he's decent, can stay healthy, and doesn't get tempted by our fantastic "plants" and microbreweries i'd be willing to give him the LLE....

But really, who am I kidding....

Tough injury, I saw it and it didn't look pretty.

I hope Josh can use this time off to rededicate himself to the game, set his head straight and figure some shit out.

He's a good talent, just has issues.

Can't say I'm surprised. He had a knee-related injury last season.

Also, for anyone expecting Gilbert Arenas to be Washington's saviour next season (along with a high draft pick), his knee still isn't battle tested outside of a 2-month trial run.

One thing's for sure - Blatche and Thornton are going to get a loooot of minutes! Probably JaVale McGee too, which is an underrated player IMO.

Blatche, McGee, Young and Thornton are some nice youngins...

Looks like Andre Blatche has a chance to pad up his stat line some more. 22 points and 10 boards for the rest of the season for him.

It wasn't fake, the injury looked really bad and you could see the knee destabilizing. I'm not a J Howard fan but I wouldn't wish that on anyone
