WASHINGTON (AP) — Washington Wizards center Dwight Howard is sitting out Tuesday night's (Wednesday, PHL time) game against the Los Angeles Clippers because of a gluteal injury.
Howard, who missed the first seven games of the season with the injury, left Sunday's (Monday, PHL time) game against Portland in the second quarter when he aggravated the injury.
Wizards coach Scott Brooks says he hopes Howard will be able to play in Friday's game (Saturday, PHL time) at Toronto.
Howard is averaging 12.8 points and 9.2 rebounds per game.
Second-year player Thomas Bryant is getting his first NBA start at center in Howard's place.
