Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will be suspended for the first game in 2015-16 that he is physically able to play.
Insight: Howard earned the suspension with four flagrant fouls in the postseason. The Rockets center played pretty good basketball in the playoffs, averaging 16.4 ppg, 14.0 rpg and 2.3 bpg.
 
5/26/2015 8:37:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will not be suspended for elbowing Andrew Bogut above the shoulders during Game 4 on Monday.
Insight: Howard was surprisingly not ejected and just given a Flagrant 1 Foul. We say surprisingly because it looked worse than what Al Horford was ejected for the previous night. The NBA said the contact Howard made with Bogut was unnecessary but not excessive. Good thing Howard will not be suspended because Houston will need him if they have any chance of winning Game 5 in Golden State to stay alive.
 
5/23/2015 11:40:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard had 14 points and 14 rebounds in the, 115-80, embarrassing loss to the Warriors in Game 3 of the Western Conference Finals on Saturday.
Insight: Howard was the Rockets best player, but that isn't saying much. It really was a poor effort from Houston as the score reflects. Howard was 6-for-10 from the field with a block, but he was also 2-for-8 at the line. Golden State leads the series, 3-0.
 
5/22/2015 9:58:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard started on Thursday night despite being less than 100 percent, but posted solid numbers - 19 points, 17 rebounds, two steals and a block.
Insight: Not bad for a guy playing on one good knee. Game 3 is Saturday and as long as the knee doesn't swell up overnight he should be good to go.
 
5/21/2015 8:38:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will start on Thursday night.

Insight: Howard is going to get a MRI on Wednesday, so owners should know more once the results from the test come back. Howard hurt his knee from Josh Smith rolling into his legs during the first half of Game 1. Howard returned to the game after the injury, but he didn't play in the fourth quarter. He finished with seven points and 13 rebounds in 26 minutes.

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard did not play on Wednesday against the Kings, but is likely to return on Thursday.
Insight: Howard hasn't been ok'ed to play in back-to-back games and after missing Wednesday should be ready to go on Thursday. The team appears to be limited Howard to about 20 minutes per night, which limits his fantasy value.

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will not play on Wednesday against the Kings according to the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: The Rockets are playing the first game of a back-to-back as they face the Mavericks on Thursday, so Howard will play versus the Mavericks. Joey Dorsey will start versus the Kings.

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game versus Sacramento.
Insight: It seems the decision is up to Howard himself, and with Houston also playing on Thursday, owners should expect him to miss at least one of those contests.
