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."
