It appears new Wizards center Dwight Howard may miss all of training camp, head coach Scott Brooks told reporters, including Chase Hughes of NBC Sports Washington. Brooks had indicated that Howard would miss time as he deals with an ailing back.
Howard, 32, signed with the Wizards in the offseason after he was acquired by the Nets and subsequently bought out. The eight-time All-Star is with his fifth team in seven seasons as he looks to build on a solid season with the Hornets in 2017-18. Playing in over 80 games for the first time since the 2009-10 campaign, Howard averaged 16.6 PPG and 12.5 RPG for Charlotte.
