AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Dwight Howard will miss the Los Angeles Lakers' game at Detroit on Sunday because of his ailing shoulder.
Howard was scratched from Friday night's game at Minnesota with a sore right shoulder and returned to Los Angeles to receive platelet-rich plasma treatments. It's the same injury that kept him out of three games in January.
Howard was with the team Sunday but says he's still sore, and he wants to make sure this isn't a recurring problem for the rest of the season.
The Pistons, meanwhile, are still without guard Jose Calderon, whom they acquired from Toronto in a trade Wednesday. Calderon, from Spain, has been unavailable to play because of unresolved visa issues.
