Josh Howard Out For Season With Knee Surgery

In devastating news for Josh Howard, the former Dallas Mavericks All-Star, who has been playing for the Utah Jazz this season, has been ruled out for the rest of the season:


It's been all downhill for Howard since being dealt to Washington as a part of the Caron Butler deal in 2010, as he tore his ACL almost immediately as he began playing for the Wizards.


He missed most of the next 1.5 seasons recovering, falling almost completely off the NBA radar in the process.


The most unfortunate part of his career is that he's become known more for his various off-the-court indiscretions and rumored marijuana use than the excellent player he was in his time in Dallas.


He was signed with Utah for only one year, so this injury couldn't have come at a worse time.
