Brendan Haywood Injury: Mavericks Big Man To Make Comeback Against Orlando?

The Dallas Mavericks are going to have one more big body to throw at Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic on Friday night with center Brendan Haywood returning from his knee injury, according Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

Haywood sprained his knee two week ago against the Charlotte Bobcats and has not played since. While the center is putting up a whopping 5.7 points and 6.8 rebounds a game, it will certainly be his girth that is to be most appreciated in defending Howard.
