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.

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.

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.

Insight: There was hope he would be able to play Monday, but he apparently did not feel right during shootaround. Tarik Black will get the start, but has little fantasy value. power forward/center Donatas Motiejunas would be a better option

Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) will not play Monday against the Knicks.

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.

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.
