Minnesota Timberwolves Cut Josh Howard

Forward Josh Howard's career with the Minnesota Timberwolves comes to a close after just 11 games. The team announced that Josh Howard would be released from the team due to a torn right ACL. Typically those take around nine to 12 months to recover from (unless you are Adrian Peterson) and thus ended his season once again.

At first the injury was said to be a mere hyper extension in his right knee, but now MRIs are showing that he had ended up tearing his ACL, an injury that cut his season short in 2010 as well. The Wolves had originally signed Howard to fill in the roster after several other players went down with injuries as well. Now, he has been released and the team has one roster spot left to fill if Kahn wants to.

In the 11 games that he played, four of which he started, Howard averaged 6.7 points and 3.3 rebounds per game. Since the beginning of the 2009 season, Howard has played in just 107 games. After suffering this fatal injury, it appears that Josh Howard's NBA run will end as well.
