Report: Rockets' Dwight Howard scheduled for MRI next week
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(2/28/15) Rockets center Dwight Howard has not played in over a month with a right knee injury and is continuing to rehab. However, he is not scheduled to start on-court activity yet and is set to receive an MRI next week, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Howard, who is averaging 16.3 points and 11.0 rebounds in 32 games, will meet with his doctor to determine whether or not he can advance to the next stage of rehab this week.
Rockets' Dwight Howard able to take shots at practice
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) Rockets center Dwight Howard was spotted taking shots at the end of practice on Thursday, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Howard has been sidelined since early February after receiving a bone marrow injection in his right knee. While he was able to do some shooting, Howard did not participate in practice. There was no update on his status or injury timetable. Howard was initially expected to miss 6-8 weeks following the injection.
Howard averaged 16.3 points and 11.0 rebounds prior to the injury.
Rockets' Dwight Howard looking at 6-8 weeks of recovery
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(2/8/15) Rockets center Dwight Howard is looking at 6-8 weeks of recovery, according to the Houston Chronicle.
Howard was initially expected to miss four weeks after receiving a bone marrow injection in his right knee. He'll have an MRI in four weeks, and that will help determine whether he's made progress. Howard's status will be determined by how well he responds to treatment, not necessarily his MRI results.
Howard is averaging 16.3 points and 11.0 rebounds per game.
Rockets G James Harden, F Terrence Jones probable
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(2/6/15) Rockets guard James Harden and forward Terrence Jones are listed as probable for Friday night's game against the Bucks.
Harden (right knee contusion) and Jones (left leg nerve inflammation) were both able to play this past Wednesday against the Bulls, a 101-90 victory.
Dwight Howard, expected to miss some time in the coming weeks, is out due to a right knee edema.
Rockets' Dwight Howard out for four weeks after bone marrow injection
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(2/4/15) The Rockets announced that center Dwight Howard, who is dealing with swelling in his right knee, had a bone marrow aspirate injection Wednesday morning, according to the Houston Chronicle. The injection is expected to keep him sidelined a minimum of four weeks.
Joey Dorsey will get the start at center for the time being.
On Tuesday, Howard attended practice but rode the stationary bike. He's expected to immediately start his rehab in order to get back on the court. He averaged 16.3 points and 11.0 rebounds in 32 games.
|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.
