Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will play on Sunday versus the Pelicans but not on Monday against the Hornets according to the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Howard still isn't ready for back-to-back sets, so this isn't a surprise. Plan your lineup accordingly.

4/2/2015 1:39:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard did not play on Wednesday against the Kings, but is likely to return on Thursday.
Insight: Howard hasn't been ok'ed to play in back-to-back games and after missing Wednesday should be ready to go on Thursday. The team appears to be limited Howard to about 20 minutes per night, which limits his fantasy value.
 
4/1/2015 7:11:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will not play on Wednesday against the Kings according to the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: The Rockets are playing the first game of a back-to-back as they face the Mavericks on Thursday, so Howard will play versus the Mavericks. Joey Dorsey will start versus the Kings.
 
4/1/2015 12:20:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard (knee) is questionable for Wednesday's game versus Sacramento.
Insight: It seems the decision is up to Howard himself, and with Houston also playing on Thursday, owners should expect him to miss at least one of those contests.
 
3/30/2015 10:52:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will not play in Monday's game against Toronto.
Insight: He's just back from missing 26 games due to a bad knee, so there is no need to push him until playoff time. He posted a double-double on Sunday, but will likely be on a minutes limit and miss some games for the remainder of the regular season.
 
3/29/2015 3:24:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard is getting a little bit better each game since returning from his injury.
Insight: Howard recorded a double-double on Sunday with 11 points and 10 rebounds. He took just six shots, so he isn't quite in rhythm yet with the Houston offense. As long as he is in the lineup, though, Howard must be in fantasy lineups.
 
3/27/2015 10:26:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard made his presence felt on Friday.
Insight: After recording just four points and seven boards on Wednesday, Howard produced 18 points, four rebounds, two steals, and one block on Friday night in 20 minutes of action. Houston will continue to ease him back in.
 
3/27/2015 10:59:00 AM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard started on Wednesday against the Pelicans and came through it without incident, so we expect him back on the court Friday night.
Insight: Howard only played 16 minutes and is likely on a minutes limit after missing two months. We expect his numbers from the first game back (four points, seven rebounds) will improve dramatically over the next few games as he knocks off the rust from his game.
 
3/25/2015 2:44:00 PM
Description: Rockets center Dwight Howard will start on Wednesday against the Pelicans. Coach Kevin McHale said he will be on a minutes limit according to the Houston Chronicle.
Insight: Judging by the fact he hasn't played in two months, Howard will probably not play more than 15 minutes. If owners kept Howard on the roster this long, now is the time to start him.
 
3/24/2015 2:48:00 PM
Description: Rockets' head coach Kevin McHale said he was planning on playing center Dwight Howard (knee) on Wednesday at New Orleans.
Insight: He did preface the statement with "depending on how Howard feels today (Tuesday)", but this is great news for fantasy owners.
 
3/23/2015 1:22:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard (knee) has been downgraded to out for Monday's game against Indiana.
Insight: It was always unlikely for him to play Monday, but it is still big news that Howard is getting close enough that we have to do daily notes. He could be back by the end of the week.
 
3/22/2015 2:19:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard (knee) has been upgraded to doubtful for Monday's game against Indiana.
Insight: While he is unlikely to play, it is still big news that Howard is getting closer. He could be back by the end of the week.
 
3/18/2015 6:40:00 PM
Description: Houston center Dwight Howard could return in a week. He is expected to played between 20-25 minutes and will not play in back-to-back sets right away according to NBA.com.
Insight: Howard returned to practice on Monday and could return as early as March 23. He, however, doesn't have much fantasy value for this regular season. The minutes limit is going to hurt, plus he will miss at least three games because of back-to-back sets. Terrence Jose, Donatas Motiejunas and Josh Smith owners should keep rolling with those guys for now.
