    When it rains, it pours.

    And when it pours, it floods.

    And when it floods — especially in Washington, D.C. this season — Wizards fans drown. They drown in a bloody mess of "why us?" tears, unloaded handguns and Oberto sweat.

    Send trailers, David Stern. Send 'em now.

    Mike Jones, formerly of The Washington Times, is reporting on the ol' Twitter machine that Wiz coach Flip Saunders has informed him that forward Josh Howard(notes) is done for the season with a torn ACL.

    Howard, who was just acquired from Dallas in a seven-player trade, injured his left knee in the team's victory over the Bulls on Monday night. Howard collided with Chicago's Flip Murray(notes) while trying to catch an outlet pass with 4:23 left in the first quarter. He fell to the floor and had to be helped off.

    More bad news to come, no doubt.

    UPDATE: Flip says the Wizards "will probably look around" to add someone that can "fit in without disrupting things." He added J-Ho's injury has no impact on Big Z or Mike James, and that Al Thornton would take over the starting lineup spot.

    UPDATE II: Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld said Howard would have surgery once the inflammation in his knee subsides, which could be in a week or two, according to Michael Lee of The Washington Post
