NBA confirms Flagrant 1 call for Rockets C Dwight Howard
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) The NBA has confirmed that Rockets center Dwight Howard's foul on Andrew Bogut in Game 4 of the Western Conference finals was a Flagrant 1.
This means Howard will not be subject to any further discipline and will not be suspended.
Howard fouled Bogut with what appeared to be an elbow above the shoulders. Howard is averaging 16.2 points and 13.9 rebounds during the playoffs. He's recorded three consecutive double-doubles.
Rockets not expecting further punishment for Dwight Howard foul
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/26/15) Rockets coach Kevin McHale doesn't believe center Dwight Howard will see further punishment for his flagrant foul on Andrew Bogut on Monday, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Howard fouled Bogut hard in Game 4 above the shoulders and was given a Flagrant 1.
"He just tried to get off a hold," McHale said. "The second foul always gets called. He swiped his arm back, it's not like he turned on him. It's been that way forever in this league. The second one always gets called."
Howard is averaging 16.2 points and 13.9 rebounds per game in the playoffs and has recorded three consecutive double-doubles.

Rockets' Dwight Howard's knee improving
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Rockets center Dwight Howard said that his injured knee feels better than it did prior to Game 2, per the San Francisco Chronicle.
Howard had 19 points and 17 rebounds in 40 minutes in Game 2. He said on Saturday, "I don't even want to think of it as an injury."
|For a guy who's widely considered the best center in the league, Dwight Howard had a pretty quiet statistical year in his first season with Houston. He dipped below two blocks per game for the first time in almost a decade, but still finished fourth in rebounds at 12.2 per game. However, there's a good chance Howard gets back up over 20 points per game with Chandler Parsons leaving 13 field goal attempts per game on the table in his departure to Dallas. They replaced Parsons with defensive specialist/corner-three monger in Trevor Ariza, so expect the Rockets to lean more heavily on Howard on the offensive end this season. He should develop better chemistry with James Harden, and coach Kevin McHale will probably want his team to get more comfortable running through Howard come playoff time. If he comes out hungry and looking like the player we saw in the playoffs, Howard is well worth a late first-round pick.
