Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is a guaranteed 18 points and a dozen rebounds a night, but he doesn't come without warts.
Insight: Fantasy owners who choose Howard are getting a career 57 percent free throw shooter who finished under 50 percent in two of the last three seasons. And his 1.8 bpg last season was his lowest since 2005-06. In his second season with Houston we are projecting a slight uptick to 19 ppg, 13.1 rpg, 1.5 apg and 2.1 blocks per contest.
 
10/9/2014 6:44:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is not playing in Thursday's preseason game against the Grizzlies.
Insight: Howard has a sore knee but the injury does not appear to be serious. He should remain an early-round target in fantasy drafts.
 
5/3/2014 9:32:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard contributed 26 points, 11 rebounds and two blocked shots Friday in a Game 6 loss to Portland.
Insight: Howard was consistently good all series (26 ppg, 13.7 rpg and 2.8 bpg) but it wasn't enough as the Trail Blazers eliminated Houston in six games. Certainly Howard's poor free shooting played a role in Friday's loss (6-of-11). Portland will face the winner of Sunday's Dallas/San Antonio game in round two.
 
4/14/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard had 20 points and 17 rebounds in 31 minutes Monday against the Spurs.
Insight: Howard sat out eight games due to an ankle strain before returning to the lineup Saturday with 13 points and six rebounds in 29 minutes.

Insight: It's the first time he's played since March 27th. The Rockets are also getting Patrick Beverley back from a torn meniscus. Head coach Kevin McHale hinted that he would be cautious with both players in their first games back so don't expect Howard (18.5 ppg, 12.3 rpg) or Beverley (9.9 ppg) to see their usual minutes.
 
4/12/2014 11:30:00 AM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard (ankle) has missed the past eight games and is questionable for Saturday's game against New Orleans.

Insight: It's the sixth game he's missed with a sprained ankle. That means more minutes for 7-footer Omer Asik (12.0 ppg, 16.8 rpg over his last five games).
 
4/8/2014 2:43:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (ankle) is expected to miss Tuesday's game against the LA Lakers.

4/5/2014 1:35:00 PM

3/29/2014 11:45:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard won't be available Saturday against the Clippers. SOURCE: Jonathan Feigen, Houston Chronicle
Insight: We assume this is related to his recent ankle issues. Omer Asik (4.5 ppg, 6.2 rpg) will be a double-double threat in Howard's absence.
 
3/27/2014 10:34:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard had 17 points, 13 rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 26 minutes Thursday against the 76ers.
Insight: Howard had to leave practice Wednesday after bumping knees with a teammate, but he should be fine. The team was able to limit his minutes Thursday because it was playing the woeful Sixers.
 
3/27/2014 10:48:00 AM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard is questionable for Thursday's game against Philadelphia after bruising a knee in Wednesday's practice.
Insight: Howard (18.5 ppg, 12.3 rpg, 1.8 bpg) returned from a three-game absence due to an ankle strain on Monday and played 33 minutes. The Rockets have a viable option in backup Omer Asik and could eaily beat the Sixers without Howard if needed. Likely a game-time decision.
 
3/26/2014 3:17:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard had a knee-on-knee collision with a teammate during Wednesday's practice and missed most of it, according to Jason Friedman of rockets.com.

3/24/2014 2:33:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard has been upgraded to questionable for Monday's game against Charlotte, after coach Kevin McHale said he was optimistic. He is still a game-time decision.
