Rockets center Dwight Howard feeling more explosive with ankle

(3/10/2015) Rockets center Dwight Howard is still at least three weeks away from taking the court in a game, but the big man is upbeat about his progress to get back on the court. He said Tuesday he's feeling more explosive than he has all season.

"I'm a little bit more explosive right now," Howard said to the Houston Chronicle. "They've been working on my conditioning a lot, too. All season long I've been battling back from an injury. It was tough for me to stay in shape and also play at a high level.

"This time, I think they took the necessary steps to make sure I won't re-injure my leg. They've been working on my full body — back, legs, whatever may cause any weaknesses in my body."

Trainer Jason Biles said the original timeframe for Howard, six to eight weeks, is still in play and that they aren't going to push Howard to get back before he's ready.

"We're not going to rush it," Biles said. "We have goals and objectives he needs to achieve basketball wise and with his body in testing."


Rockets C Dwight Howard taking next step in rehab process


(3/7/2015) Rockets center Dwight Howard is trying to come back from his knee edema.  The 29-year-old has started doing on-court rehab in order to get back on the floor.

“He’s got to get on the floor and get some up-and-down on the floor,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. “I’m not talking with the team; I’m just talking with himself. He just started doing a little of that. We have to see how his knee tolerates that. He ran on the treadmill (at full body weight) for a few days and that felt pretty good.  He’s starting to do a combination of treadmill/floor stuff, which is a good sign, but they’re going slow. They want to make sure they have a handle on it. It’s bothered him really all year.”

Howard was averaging 16.3 points and 11.0 rebounds through 32 games prior to suffering the knee injury. 


Rockets center Dwight Howard is on schedule from knee injury


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2015) Rockets center Dwight Howard had an MRI on his troublesome right knee Wednesday, which revealed Howard is progressing as scheduled, reports The Houston Chronicle.

"He's coming along," Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. "I saw him on the treadmill which is a good sign, but I haven't seen him on the floor. Until you see him on the floor, who knows."

Howard has not played since Jan. 23 after receiving a bone marrow injection in his right knee. He has been able to do some work in the weight room as well as some pool workouts.

McHale added he hopes Howard can return soon so he can get his timing back.

"I've seen great players take two months off and come back and it takes them a while," McHale said. "It's just the pace of the game and the NBA grind. The game, the size, the speed, when you're away from it and you're out there, it just takes a little time. You need timing. You can't get timing one-on-one at three-quarters speed for three weeks and then doing it at full speed for five days and jumping on the court. It just takes a lot of time."
