Howard out for Lakers game tonight

Dwight Howard will not play tonight when the Lakers take on the Timberwolves in Minnesota.  Dwight has returned to LA after reinjuring his right shoulder in the loss to the Jazz.  This means Pau Gasol will start at center.  I don’t think that is a bad thing, will depend on how his supporting cast performs.  Will Kobe be the facilitator he has been recently?  Stay tuned…game on at 9:30 pm EST on ESPN.  This the second game of a seven game road stretch for the Lakers and it may determine whether they can make up enough ground to “elevate” themselves into the 8th seed and make the playoffs.  Who would have thought we would be talking about the Lakers making it into the playoffs as the 8th seed?
