Courtney Lee out for Game 6, Howard?

Believe it or not, I’m sorry that Magic injured rookie guard Lee will miss game 6, I like the player a lot and he seems to be a good guy.
Of course he was a huge factor for Orlando in the first five games, and for them this is a big loss (again, re-check Pietrus’ & Redick’s numbers in his absence… pretty pathetic), but I would have preferred to face a Magic team at full roster. Even losing to it, of course.
But the most awaited news will be the decision about Howard’s possible suspension. From the same source:
An NBA spokesman said the league is reviewing another elbow by Howard on the Sixers’ Samuel Dalembert that drew a technical foul.
This should actually be a no brainer, with the only doubt being how many games he will miss. Zach Randolph got a two game suspension for punching former Sixer bum Lou Amundson, I think the case here is completeley different of course, so one game wearing a suit will be fair for Howard.
Anything less would be totally unacceptable to me. More to come later, hopefully.
