Hawks center Dwight Howard was hospitalized with the hope it was just dehydration and he’d be released today.

Good news on both counts.

Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Dwight Howard was released from a hospital early Monday morning after being treated for dehydration, according to a person familiar with the situation. Howard took ill during a plane flight to Atlanta Sunday and was briefly hospitalized.

With such a short stay in the hospital, it seems likely Howard will put this health issue completely behind him well before training camp.
