Dwight Howard’s butt injury that has already caused him to miss time this season will likely result in surgery.  The Wizards center met with a nerve specialist in Los Angeles on Thursday and is likely to have surgery on his butt.

Howard has only appeared in nine games this season for Washington and would miss a significant amount of time if he goes through with the procedure.

Dealing with a lingering pain in his butt isn’t exactly how Howard expected to spend his first season with the Wizards.  You know what they say, what goes around comes around.  He’s spent his entire career being a lingering pain in the butt.
