NBA covers the medical expenses.

T'Wolves pay him the rest of his contract at $850K so dont be too upset for him.

This is the 2nd time in 3 years that Howard has torn his ACL now in both knees.

The Timberwolves have more than enough SF's. He looked good tho. But they'll get by. It's the 2guard spot.

I don't know about the Wolves, but Rick Adelman was definitely not a fan of T-Will when he was here in Houston.

Wow, it is like Josh is getting suck into the black hole of obscurity very quickly. He used to be very a good forward.
