Howard Admits Him Not Being In Shape Has Cost Lakers “A Lot Of Games”

Coming off of back surgery last April to repair a herniated disk, Dwight Howard admits that 56 games into the season, he is still not in good shape, and it’s cost the 27-29 Lakers “a lot of games”.

According to Mike Bresnahan, Los Angeles Times:

“…Coming off the injury, I only had four weeks to get ready for the season, which was training camp and then preseason. I didn’t really have a chance to really get in good shape. It’s hard trying to get in shape during the season playing a lot of minutes and traveling.

“I’m not even close. I used to play 45, 48 minutes without really getting tired. Now I have five possessions, I’m winded. I know I’m not there, but all that stuff will come…I just know how much more effective I will be in better shape and that just comes with time. Unfortunately, it cost us a lot of games but we’ve got an opportunity to make history. I’m going to try and do whatever I can to help this team win.”
