From Comcast SportsNetORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- Magic center Dwight Howard will sit out Orlando's home game Friday night against Atlanta because of back spasms.Orlando coach Stan Van Gundy made the announcement at the team's morning shoot around, adding that backup point guard Chris Duhon is also still questionable after missing the past two games with a suspension and sore foot, respectively.Howard, who has missed three of the Magic's past five games, is in Los Angeles seeking a second opinion on his injured back.Van Gundy says Howard was in pain following the team's practice Thursday and the coach isn't optimistic he'll be ready to play at Cleveland Sunday or against Philadelphia on Monday.The Magic entered Friday tied for fifth place in the Eastern Conference with Atlanta, though the Hawks hold the head-to-head tiebreaker.
The Bears have another Pro Bowler.
After initially getting shut out on the Pro Bowl roster, the Bears have since had two players named as injury replacements with guard Josh Sitton now joining running back Jordan Howard.
Sitton was named as an injury replacement Monday afternoon for Packers guard T.J. Lang, who left Sunday's NFC Championship game early.
This will be Sitton's third straight Pro Bowl and fourth career honor.

The 30-year-old offensive lineman signed with the Bears before 2016 after the Packers released him.
Sitton played in 13 of the Bears' 16 games including 12 starts, helping to anchor the Bears' line when healthy.
Howard replaced Cardinals running back David Johnson on the NFC Pro Bowl roster earlier this month.
