Dwight Howard Bruised His Left Knee And Did Not Play The Final 11 Minutes

Dwight Howard was questionable to return to Game 1 of the Western Conference Finals against the Golden State Warriors after he suffered a bruised knee in the first half in a collision with Josh Smith.

After giving it a go, he didn’t see much court time in the second half, and eventually just shut it down for good with 11:09 left in the fourth quarter.
