Associated Press
ORLANDO, Fla. — Magic center Dwight Howard is officially listed as out with a herniated disc in his lower back for Orlando's game in Cleveland Sunday.
Howard sat out the Magic's 109-81 loss to Atlanta Friday, the fifth game he's missed in Orlando's last seven outings. The team was off Saturday. He is not travelling with the team.
The Magic are 1-4 without him.
Howard was examined by Dr. Robert Watkins in Los Angeles after Howard flew there for a second opinion for what was called back spasms last month.
There is no timetable for his return, and will be based on how he responds to treatment.
Before this season, Howard had only missed two games in his career because of injury.
