Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) will not play Saturday.
Insight: Howard recently had a plasma-rich platelet injection, but is not ready to return. There is no timetable for now, which actually should cause owners to be slightly worried. Stay tuned.
 
11/22/2014 2:52:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is questionable for Saturday's game against the Mavericks.
Insight: This is actually good news because he has been upgraded from doubtful. Howard recently had a plasma-rich platelet injection, and whatever that is, it could keep him from playing one more game.
 
11/19/2014 10:13:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will not play Wednesday against the Lakers due to a strained knee.
Insight: Talk about a late scratch. We don't want to call the injury serious, but it is odd that Howard would not want to suit up at all costs against his former team.
 
11/17/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard was 6-of-11 from the field and 3-of-4 from the line in Monday's loss to Memphis.
Insight: He finished with 15 points, nine rebounds, two assists, and four turnovers (zero blocks), but nobody in this game really stood out from a fantasy standpoint. James Harden had only six points on 1-of-8 shooting.
 
11/14/2014 10:44:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard posted a double-double in Friday's win over Philadelphia.
Insight: He has 21 points and 16 rebounds, but was only 3-of-12 from the line. Howard did have seven blocks, but six turnovers as well. Bittersweet night for owners.
 
11/8/2014 8:04:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will not play Saturday due to the flu.
Insight: Kostas Papanikolaou will start at power forward, leaving Houston very thin on the front line.
 
11/6/2014 10:51:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard had his biggest game of the season against the star-deprived Spurs.
Insight: Howard scored 32 points and grabbed 16 rebounds against San Antonio, who sat Tim Duncan and Manu Ginobili. Howard was 12-for-18 from the field and 8-of-13 from the line.
 
11/4/2014 10:10:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard had a big game on Tuesday.
Insight: He had 26 points and 10 rebounds, but had five turnovers and one steal. Howard will continue to be one of the best fantasy centers in the game.
 
11/4/2014 11:21:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard was dealing with a sore right knee, but appears to have come out of Monday's game against Philadelphia without any issues.
Insight: This back to back night is a decent test of Howard's knee. He posted a mediocre 11 points and 14 rebounds against the Sixers, but we are guessing he wasn't particularly motivated against the worst team in the NBA. Lets see what he does against the Heat and Chris Bosh.
 
11/3/2014 11:36:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is dealing with a sore right knee and questionable for Monday's game against Philadelphia.
Insight: Howard probably could sit this one out and the Rockets will still win over a horrible Sixers team.
 
10/29/2014 9:56:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard was not heavily involved in the offense on opening night.
Insight: Howard only took five shots, the fewest of all the Rockets starters. He made three of those field goals and shot 7-of-16 from the free-throw line. Howard finished with 13 points and 11 rebounds.
 
10/28/2014 3:54:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard practiced Sunday and should be ready to start Tuesday night's game against the Lakers.
Insight: Howard has been dealing with knee and arm issues, but it shouldn't prevent him from dominating the Lakers big men. 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.
 
10/22/2014 10:58:00 AM
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.
 
4/12/2014 6:27:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard will be active for Saturday's game against New Orleans. SOURCE: Jenny Dial Creech, Houston Chronicle
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: Howard has a right ankle strain and hasn't been available since March 27. Omer Asik has been a solid replacement and fantasy worthy averaging 11.1 ppg and 15.3 rebounds over the past six contests.
 
4/11/2014 1:51:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard (ankle) missed Wednesday's game and will miss Friday's game against Minnesota as well.
Insight: Howard has a right ankle strain and hasn't been available since March 27. Omer Asik has averaged 8.9 points, 11.1 rebounds in 18 starts this season.
 
4/9/2014 7:49:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard (ankle) will miss Wednesday's game, according to Jonathan Feigen of the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Howard has a right ankle strain and hasn't been available since March 27. Omer Asik has averaged 11.7 points, 16.5 rebounds, 1.3 blocks and 1.0 steals the last six games.
