Howard's knee injury has kept him out for most of the 2010-11 season. Recently his injury status has gone back and forth, but he felt well enough to play in last night's game. In fact, it was the first game he started this season. "Josh Howard said his knee felt fine following the game." - Yahoo! Sports
In his first start of the 2010-11 season, Howard had 16 points, 5 rebounds, 3 3PTM, 2 steals and a block. He managed to produce these numbers, shooting 54% from the field and playing only 25 minutes.
"The Wizards are a bit banged up at small forward, but expect Howard to be worked back into the rotation instead of receiving heavy minutes right away." -Rotowire.com
Washington's next game is Wednesday night against the Magic.
