The status of Josh Howard's ankle has sort of been lost in the Dirk drama, but Tim MachMahon has a tiny update on the DMN blog.
He needs surgery on his left ankle after the season. His right ankle hurts worse right now.
Howard rode the exercise bike some today, but he didn't participate in practice. The Mavs have their fingers crossed that he'll be able to play Saturday.
Not really great news that he hasn't practiced, but if I had to bet I would think we see him start again on Saturday. And hopfully he can go for longer than six minutes...
UPDATE: So almost right after I posted this, Mike Fisher has the news that Josh Howard has said he will play on Saturday.
