The procedure is expected to cost Howard at least another two or three months. The operation was performed by Dr. Robert Watkins.

The decision to have surgery was made following his visit with a nerve specialist. 

It was best for Howard to have the surgery now, as the Wizards are struggling. And if he is healthy prior to the trade deadline, Washington could move him. 

When he did play in those nine games, he was averaging 12.8 points and 9.2 rebounds. 

The Wizards are 8-114. The team suffered another setback on Friday night, as they were defeated by the Philadelphia 76ers. 

He signed a two-year, $11 million deal with the franchise in the off-season.
