Howard Out Indefinitely

Dallas Mavericks forward Josh Howard is out indefinitely to continue his recovery from surgery on his left ankle.

Howard missed all of the pre-season and the first five games of the regular season after having arthroscopic surgery on his ankle and wrist in May. He returned to the starting lineup on Saturday against Toronto and played in the past three games.

Coach Rick Carlisle said Friday that Howard needs more time to recover. He did not put a timetable on Howard’s return. Howard will still do some work in practice in addition to his rehabilitation while he tries to regain the strength and mobility in the ankle.
