Dwight Howard (shoulder) is planning to play in the All-Star game.
Fantasy owners, Lakers fans and the Lakers front office probably all wish that Howard would use the break to rest his shoulder, but for now, Dwight is fully planning to participate. "Hopefully I'll be able to play," he said. "If I were to re-aggravate my shoulder in these next two games, I'd probably just play a couple minutes and sit the rest of it out." It doesn't sound like he has any intention of skipping the game altogether.
