Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard will not need surgery to repair the torn labrum in his right shoulder, the team said in a statement.
Howard, who will become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, was examined on Wednesday by Dr. James Tibone of the Kerlan Jobe Orthopaedic Group.
“I’m going to do whatever I can to get myself right this offseason,” said Howard, who spent last summer away from basketball while he rehabbed from back surgery, at his exit interview Tuesday. “Last year, I didn’t have the opportunity to get in the gym once before the season. I didn’t have the opportunity to grow and develop as a player, but that’s something I’m looking forward to.”
