The medical report from back in Dallas is that Josh Howard sustained no structural damage to his left wrist. It is diagnosed as a sprain, which is good news for Howard. Obviously, he's out for tonight's game against the Nuggets and coach Rick Carlisle said it's highly unlikely he'll be ready to go Wednesday night at home against the Hornets.
"Beyond that we'll see how it goes," Carlisle said.
Howard injured the wrist Friday night at Phoenix when he tried to brace himself after falling awkwardly. It's the second time this season he's sprained that wrist.
All in all, Howard will miss his 15th game of the season tonight in only the Mavs 38th.
He's missed more games in a season only once in his five previous years with the Mavs. He played in 59 games 2005-06.
