Josh Howard has decided to test his sprained left wrist tonight after all. He shot around just now and said it's a go. Just before that, coach Rick Carlisle he'd be without his starting small forward for a third straight game.
Howard has had an MRI and X-Rays of his wrist. There's no structural damage so basically it's up to Howard and his pain tolerance. We'll see how he fares when he gets that first chest pass from Jason Kidd.
