Washington Wizards center Dwight Howard probably will need a surgical procedure to provide relief from a gluteal injury that has frequently sidelined him this season, league sources told ESPN.

Howard received a recommendation from a nerve specialist in Los Angeles on Thursday and might seek further consultation before making a final decision on a surgery that would cause him to miss a significant portion of the regular season.

Howard aggravated a piriformis muscle injury in a Nov. 18 game against Portland, and has missed 12 of the Wizards’ 21 games this season, plus training camp.

Howard, 32, signed a two-year, $11 million free-agent deal with the Wizards during the summer. Thomas Bryant has replaced him in the Wizards lineup.

Hardaway will immediately start his rehabilitation process and will return to basketball activities prior to the beginning of next fall’s training camp.

The Mavs acquired Hardaway in a Jan. 31 blockbuster trade with the New York Knicks that involved seven players and two draft picks. In 19 games with the Mavs – including 17 starts – Hardaway averaged 15.5 points and 3.2 rebounds in 29.3 minutes per contest.
