09:24 PM ET 01.31 | An aggravated torn labrum has tagged Los Angeles Lakers center Dwight Howard with a day-to-day status. After suffering the original injury on Jan. 4, Howard re-injured his right shoulder Wednesday in a 92-86 loss to the Phoenix Suns. With seven minutes to play, the ball was swiped from Howard's grasp by Suns guard Shannon Brown, and Howard went down grabbing his shoulder. He said afterward that he couldn't feel other parts of his arm. Howard didn't return in the game, and the Lakers went without his defensive presence to lose the fourth quarter 29-13 en route to a rare Phoenix victory. "Two years with having injuries, it's not something that's easy to deal with," Howard told CBS Sports. "But I won't lose my spirit, and I've just got to continue to do whatever I can to get my shoulder strong."

What's LA fighting for anyways. It aint like they'll make the playoffs or win anything. This is a lost season bro. Y're a max money guy next season. Heal up and prepare for your next team.

Until Kobe gets traded and Lakers get a coach that knows something else other than his way... the ship's going down.

It's sooooo obvious Howard is faking the seriousness of his injury. He wants out of La La land and is just riding it out till seasons end. I'm not saying he isn't hurt. I just honestly think he is nowhere near as hurt as he is letting on. Reminds me of the whole Vince Carter thing in Toronto all over again to some degree.
