Dwight Howard aggravated shoulder strain, will have MRI

Stephen Dunn

After missing practice Saturday, and being listed "probable" Sunday due to a shoulder strain, Dwight Howard will undergo an MRI after aggravating the injury against the Nuggets.

Dwight Howard aggravated his shoulder strain in Sunday night's loss to the Denver Nuggets. He originally strained his shoulder Friday while playing the Clippers. Saturday, Howard did not practice with the team as his shoulder strain was causing him distress. So, now, here we are. Dwight Howard will undergo an MRI this morning to check on the shoulder, reports Mike Trudell.


The silver lining in this is that, apparently, this isn't as bad as it was after the loss to the Clippers, per Kevin Ding.


The Lakers are off today, but play the Rockets in Houston Tuesday night. Updates on the MRI when they come in.
