Description: Houston center Dwight Howard doesn't appear to be much closer to returning, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Its been four weeks and he has yet to progress to on-court drills. He'll have more MRI work done next week and we will know more, but at this point fantasy owners should plan on life without the big man.
 
2/8/2015 6:42:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard said his timetable to return will be anywhere from six-to-eight weeks according to the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: This directly contradicts the timetable Dr. Walt Love gave last week when he said Howard could return in about four weeks. This leaves fantasy owners with a very tough decision as the fantasy playoffs are rapidly approaching. Your guess is as good as ours whether to believe the doctor or the player.
 
2/2/2015 11:28:00 AM
Description: Latest reports are that Houston center Dwight Howard will miss about a month due to his bad knee.
Insight: An MRI revealed fluid buildup in his right knee, so things aren't looking too good. Donatas Motiejunas has averaged 21.0 ppg, 7.0 rpg over his last three games and should be picked up in all leagues.
 
1/30/2015 6:49:00 PM
Description: MassLive.com reports that Kevin McHale said "We won't have Dwight (Howard) for a while."
Insight: An MRI revealed fluid buildup in his right knee, so things aren't looking too good. He is seeking a second opinion, but fantasy owners should plan for him to be out for quite some time.
 
1/29/2015 7:57:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will receive a second opinion on his right knee injury according to Yahoo Sports.
Insight: Howard will miss at least two games and could miss much more time. He missed two weeks with a knee injury at the end of last season, and at this point this injury is considered more serious. Fantasy owners should probably assume Howard will be out at least through the All-Star break. However long he is out, Terrence Jones will continue to see plenty of opportunities.
 
1/29/2015 9:45:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will miss the next two games ... at least.
Insight: Howard (16.3 ppg, 11.0 rpg, 1.4 apg, 1.4 bpg) is dealing with a build up of fluid on his right knee to ho along with a right ankle injury. Just back Terrence Jones could see a lot of playing time with Donatas Motiejunas moving to the middle.
 
1/28/2015 6:51:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is doubtful versus the Mavericks on Wednesday.
Insight: Coach Kevin McHale told ESPN Dallas that he would be "shocked" if Howard plays. With Howard out, Terrence Jones has a chance for more minutes in his first game back from his injury.
 
1/25/2015 10:55:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard did not play versus the Lakers Sunday.
Insight: There appears to be a chance Howard will miss more time. Howard is considered day-to-day. Meanwhile, the Rockets are doing just fine without him against the Lakers.
 
1/25/2015 2:32:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (sprained right ankle) was not at the morning shootaround and is, at best, a game-time decision for Sunday's game against the LA Lakers, according to beat writer Mark Medina.
Insight: Consider Howard day-to-day, but they should be able to beat the Lakers without Howard which would give him until Wednesday to recover. Joey Dorsey played 20 minutes against the Suns on Friday, but didn't show he's ready to help fantasy owners. Donatas Motiejunas is a better option.
 
1/25/2015 10:15:00 AM

Insight: Consider Howard day-to-day, but they should be able to beat the Lakers without Howard which would give him until Wednesday to recover. Joey Dorsey played 20 minutes against the Suns on Friday, but didn't show he's ready to help fantasy owners. Donatas Motiejunas is a better option.
 
1/23/2015 9:57:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard left Friday's game with a sprained right ankle and will not return.

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard told the Houston Chronicle that he is still having issues with his right knee.

1/19/2015 8:19:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard recorded a double-double during Monday's victory over the Pacers.
Insight: Howard he 14 points and 17 rebounds. With the offense clearly going through James Harden this season, Howard doesn't get many opportunities on offense. He took just six shots in this game, but he is still a double-double candidate every night.
 
1/17/2015 10:53:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard recorded a double-double during Saturday's loss to the Warriors.
Insight: He had 23 points and 10 rebounds, and shot 9-of-15 from the field and 5-of-7 from the field. Howard needs to improve, as he is barely a top 200 player.
 
1/7/2015 9:39:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard cleaned the glass during Wednesday's victory versus Cleveland.

1/3/2015 10:30:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard recorded a double-double on Saturday night.
Insight: He had 23 points and 13 rebounds, and shot 9-of-13 from the field, as well as 5-of-9 from the line. Howard has been a bit a disappointment from a fantasy perspective this season, as he is barely a top-200 option.
 
Cold12/27/2014 9:10:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard was disappointing in an overtime victory against Memphis.
Insight: Playing 29 minutes, Howard was just 1-of-4 from the field. He's still getting his double-digit rebounds, but he hasn't cracked the 20-point mark in four games.

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard recorded a double-double on Monday.
Insight: Howard scored 16 points and grabbed 13 rebounds. He was 7-of-11 from the field with four assists and a steal. Howard should be in the lineup if healthy.
 
12/20/2014 10:53:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard posted a double-double in Saturday's loss to the Hawks.
Insight: He had 19 points and 11 rebounds, both team-highs. Howard also had five assists, two steals, one block, and four turnovers. Owners should just hope he can stay healthy.
 
12/20/2014 2:45:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is probable for Saturday's game.
Insight: That's the good news. The bad news is Howard has an ailing shoulder. The injury apparently won't keep Howard out in the short term, but owners should keep an eye on the situation.
