Howard's Career 'Probably' In Jeopardy If He Set Aside Back Issue
Dwight Howard admits he might not have played again had he set aside and played through his back issue until the end of last season with the Orlando Magic.
"If I would have waited until after the season, if I would have tried to continue to play, then I probably wouldn't be able to play anymore," Howard said.
Howard underwent surgery in April to repair a herniated disc in his back. Back then, even doctors told him he could "never play basketball anymore."
"I never had a major injury before," Howard said. "And I just have to keep fighting through it."
