Dwight Howard did not practice on Wednesday and has ruled himself out for the game with the Timberwolves. Howard does not plan on playing till this Saturday against the Cavaliers “hopefully I’ll be back when we play Cleveland” Howard said.

Howard told the media on Wednesday he had a cyst in his ankle drained and has been feeling the pain for nearly two weeks. Howard went on to make sure people know nothing big was wrong with his ankle “my ankle is fine” Howard said.
