I just hope you are truly ready to be back out on the court in full force before you do because if you are still injured…u will only make your health conditions worse. Why do u think Derrick Rose has not come back yet with the Chicago Bulls?

Howard underwent back surgery during the offseason, and while he’s recovered enough to physically be back out on the court, doctors familiar with that type of injury will tell you that the recovery time is a solid year, and that’s exactly how long we can expect to go by before Howard is back playing at the level we’re accustomed to seeing him play on anywhere near a consistent basis.
