Due to his back injury, Dwight Howard will not play in Sunday night’s game against the Denver Nuggets. According to Head Coach Stan Van Gundy, Howard was punched in the back by Mavericks Center Brendan Haywood during Friday night’s game.
Glen “Big Baby” Davis, who is nursing a hamstring injury, will start in his place.
