good thing we didnt trade for Howard (espn insider)

+

Tuesday the Utah Jazz announced that Josh Howard would not play again this season due to a left knee injury -- chip in lateral femoral cartilage. The Salt Lake Tribune reports Howard will seek a second opinion in New York on Wednesday before having surgery. "It's tough. But if I can get through ACL surgery and a meniscus tear, I can beat anything," said Howard. "It's a part of the game and it's just something I have to deal with. I know I'll be back." Howard is expected to miss 4-6 weeks, which means he could come back for the first round of the playoffs, if the Jazz make it to the postseason. According to the newspaper, general manager Kevin O'Connor said he won't bring in a player while Howard is out. Howard's minutes could go to C.J. Miles, Gordon Hayward, Jeremy Evans or DeMarre Carroll.
