Mavericks G Howard sits out with stomach illness
Dallas Mavericks guard Josh Howard will sit against the Washington Wizards because of a stomach illness.
Jason Terry started in Howard's spot on Wednesday night.
Howard has missed 21 of Dallas' 42 games this season. He's spent much of the season rehabilitating his surgically repaired left ankle.
Tim Thomas was also inactive. He is not with the team on a five-game road trip due to personal reasons.
