Dwight Howard to Have Season Ending Surgery

Orlando Magic centre Dwight Howard will miss the remainder of the NBA season, playoffs and the 2012 Sumeer Olympics due to back surgery which he will undergo on Friday in Los Angeles for a herniated disk. Howard has been complaining about the back pain since early March, but it wasn’t until last week that a spine surgeon in Los Angeles made the discovery of the herniated disk. At first he was slated to only be out for about 10-14 days, but after the pain had came back following an epidural procedure to alleviate the pain  it was then decided by the surgeon and Magic team doctors that surgery was needed.
