Update: Howard (shoulder) will not play in Friday's game against the Timberwolves, Yahoo! Sports reports.
Recommendation: Howard aggravated his injury during Wednesday's contest, and his latest setback will cost him at least one game. Howard is considered day-to-day, so there is a chance he could be back on the court for the Lakers' next game Sunday afternoon against the Pistons. Be sure to keep tabs on him this weekend if he is part of your fantasy squad.
