Update: Howard will not play Tuesday in Brooklyn due to his sore right shoulder, the Los Angeles Times reports. While he's feeling better, he continues to experience pain and wants to avoid further injury.
Recommendation: It is unclear if Howard will be able to return for any of the four games that remain on the Lakers' current road trip. However, he is with the team after undergoing a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) procedure Saturday, which was presumably intended to speed up his recovery after aggravating the torn labrum in his right shoulder last Wednesday. In the meantime, Howard remains day-to-day.
