From the Salt Lake Tribune’s Brian T. Smith:

#UtahJazz forward Josh Howard out for season due to upcoming left knee surgery.

The 31-year old Wake Forest product appeared in 41 games for the Jazz this season, and averaged 8.7 points and 3.7 rebounds per game on 39.7%/22.2%/77.9% shooting from the field. This is obviously a blow to the Jazz, who are currently a half-game out of the final playoff spot in the West. We hope that Howard has a speedy recovery and comes back at 100% next season.

    Mavericks fan here! This dude stayed hurt in Dallas and in DC so this isn’t news to me. He’s as brittle as Greg Oden….
