|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|

Rockets C Dwight Howard probable for Game 3
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/22/15) Rockets center Dwight Howard has been upgraded to probable for Game 3 of the Western Conference finals Saturday in Houston.
That designation indicates that Howard, who has been hampered by a knee problem, came through Game 2 without a setback.
Howard certainly improved his performance Thursday, racking up 19 points and 17 rebounds in 40 minutes against Golden State. He managed just seven points and 13 boards in 26 minutes in the series opener.
Rockets clear Dwight Howard (knee) to play in Game 2
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(5/21/15) Rockets center Dwight Howard will be able to play in Thursday's Game 2 matchup at Golden State, the team announced.
"I wanted to play, and you have to have some part of you that feels that you can contribute no matter what shape you're in," Howard said.
Howard was considered a game-time decision Thursday with a left knee bruise, which he sustained in Game 1. Howard was wearing a brace on the knee while warming up prior to the game.
The Rockets are 10-point underdogs at Golden State on Thursday.
|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.
