Dwight Howard (back) will sit out the Wizards' preseason game on Monday.
Howard was expected to be shut down for the rest of this week so it's not surprising that he won't play after zero practices. Word out of Wizards camp is that Howard is progressing, so even if he's not ready for the beginning of the preseason slate we're not too worried about him right now. Things could change quickly if his back injuries linger, and given their potential to do just that plus his history of back issues we'll be keeping a close eye on his status in practices next week.
