Now, the veteran center will have to sit out Friday’s game against the Orlando Magic as the NBA has issued Howard a suspension for picking up another tech. “Howard received his most recent technical foul with 10:19 remaining in the second quarter of the 76ers’ loss to the Miami Heat on May 13 at AmericanAirlines Arena. Howard will serve his suspension tonight when the 76ers play to host the Orlando Magic at the Wells Fargo Center.”
Howard’s technical foul was a result of an altercation between himself and Miami Heat veteran Udonis Haslem. As Haslem entered the game to make his 2020-2021 NBA season debut, the veteran got frustrated as Howard played physically and forced Haslem to fall as they both attempted to go for a rebound.
The Heat veteran then approached Howard with frustration and eventually put his hand on Howard during the argument.
