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
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard left Friday's game with a sprained right ankle and is questionable for Sunday's game against the LA Lakers.
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.

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.
Insight: He had 19 boards to go along with his 17 points, two assists, one block, and four turnovers. Howard went 6-of-13 from the field and 5-of-11 from the charity stripe.
 
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.
 
12/22/2014 10:53:00 PM
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.
 
12/14/2014 9:57:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard played longer than expected in his return Saturday and led the team with 26 points.
Insight: The Rockets were supposed to ease Howard back into the lineup with 20-24 minutes on Saturday. Instead, he played 30 minutes and made 9-of-11 shots. Howard continues to struggle at the line, but that is to be expected. He also had 13 rebounds, three blocks, two assists and a steal. Great first night back for Howard.
 
12/13/2014 6:43:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is expected to play 20-24 minutes in his return on Saturday according to Fox 26 Houston.
Insight: The Rockets have played very well without Howard, so they by no means will rush back their big-man, but he is a must-start if he is out on the floor.
 
12/13/2014 12:15:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) is listed as probable for Saturda's contest against the Nuggets.
Insight: Howard has missed the last 11 games, so his return will be a welcomed sight. Owners need to check back to see if he is officially active before tip-off.
