MINNEAPOLIS — Dwight Howard has been listed as day-to-day when the Lakers play Friday against the Minnesota Timberwolves because of what the team termed a “sore” right shoulder.
After aggravating it for the third time in the past month in the Lakers’ 92-86 loss Wednesday to the Phoenix Suns, Howard visited with Lakers trainer Gary Vitti Thursday in Minneapolis to assess the shoulder’s pain level.
Howard appeared in a somber mood after the game and struggled putting on an undershirt, but the injury wasn’t serious enough to warrant seeing a doctor.
