The piriformis, for those wondering, is a muscle in the gluteal region.
We’ll wait while you get those giggles out of your system.
As Charania reports, the injury, though embarrassing, isn’t serious and he’ll continue to undergo treament.
Howard, 32, is an eight-time all-star and was a five-time All-NBA First Team selection. He signed with the Wizards in July after spending last season with the Charlotte Hornets. Washington will be Howard’s sixth NBA team in what will be his 15th NBA season.
