ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -Orlando Magic star Dwight Howard needed six stitches after getting cut on the mouth in a collision at practice.
Coach Stan Van Gundy says he doesn't expect Howard to miss any games, but the center did postpone a charitable event Tuesday. Orlando hosts the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday.
Howard hasn't missed a single game in nearly four seasons with Orlando. This season is the best so far for the 22-year-old. Howard earned his first start as an All-Star and is averaging 21 points and 14 rebounds a game.
