Torn labrum for Dwight Howard

The Los Angeles Lakers organization reported that center Dwight Howard has suffered a torn labrum and is out indefinitely.


The injury came in Sunday’s game against the Denver Nuggets.

To add insult to injury, literally, Pau Gasol was diagnosed with a concussion after being hit in the face in the same game.

What does this mean for the Lakers, a team already struggling to mesh and find an identity?

A longer road ahead, basically.

Can Jordan Hill step in and rise to the occasion? He has been playing hard the last few games, but is averaging 6.7 points and 5.7 boards this season.

The Lakers are currently 15-18.

Damn, Kobe. It really is ALL on you right now.
