Josh Howard seems to sprain an ankle every other day, so when he limps a bit at the end of practice, or sits out a final drill and hits the stationary bike, as he did Tuesday, it's usually not cause for alarm.
But, it would be a shame if Howard is not at full speed for Wednesday's big game against the Suns. Howard isn't one to miss games unless he's seriously hurting, and Howard at 80 percent is better than most guys at his position at 100 percent.
Just something to watch.
