Is Dwight Howards Absence truthfully attributed to an injury?

Reports are coming out left and right that Dwight Howard is refusing to play for Stan Van Gundy and will plan to sit out the 2012 NBA Playoffs.

Well the truth will set you free and finally it has been announced that  Dwight Howard will undergo back surgery on Friday morning in Los Angeles to repair a herniated disk.

The surgery will end his season and will leave the Orlando Magic Howard-less entering the 2012 NBA playoffs.

The current roster has struggled in his absence and is predicted to be eliminated in the 1st round.

***Keep an eye on the Orlando Magic as they will probably strategically watch Howard’s progress and possibly trade him for a Draft pick in the upcoming 2012 NBA Draft.

Scenarios have been proposed that the Magic could potentially negotiate for Predicted First Overall Pick, Anthony Davis, and potentially bring over a few other stars from the team that has his pick.
