News: Howard scored 20 points (9-11 FG, 2-4 FT) and pulled down 17 rebounds in 31 minutes Monday versus the Spurs. Impact: Howard looked like his normal self, which is a great sign for Houston with the playoffs starting in just a few days. Owners who were hurt by the center's absence for the last two weeks can at least take solace in this performance.(RotoWire, )

News: Howard (ankle) returned to his familiar starting role after missing the last eight games, scoring 13 points (5-8 FG, 3-8 FT), grabbing six rebounds and blocking two shots in 29 minutes. Impact: Howard's return likely spells the end for Omer Asik's big run and relegates him to deep league relevance only. Expect Howard to be back to himself for the season's final games.(RotoWire, )

Fri. Apr 11, 2014
News: Howard (ankle) will miss Friday's game against Minnesota, the Rockets' official Twitter account reports. Impact: Howard appears to be on the verge of returning from his ankle injury, with Saturday versus the Pelicans a likely possibility. While Omer Asik will get an eighth consecutive start Friday, that streak shouldn't last much longer since Howard is expected to be back in the next couple games.(RotoWire, )

News: Howard (ankle) will not play Wednesday versus the Nuggets, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Howard was initially listed as "we'll see" by the Rockets, but it turns out he'll remain sidelined for the seventh straight game. The big man is dealing with an ankle injury, and Houston certainly won't take any chances with his health as the playoffs loom. Omer Asik will continue to start at center.(RotoWire, )

News: Howard (ankle) could return Wednesday against the Nuggets, the Houston Chronicle reports. Kevin McHale called Howard a "we'll see" status for the game. Impact: This news brings on a semi-positive note regarding Howard, as McHale didn't dismiss the possibility of his return. It appears Howard will play sometime this week, so owners will just have to hope for good news as the time comes.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Coach Kevin McHale confirmed that Howard will not play Tuesday against the Lakers, the Rockets' official site reports. Impact: Howard is close to a return to the court, but it will not be Tuesday. It is possible that he will be able to return Wednesday against the Nuggets, but at this point Friday against the Timberwolves seems more likely.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Apr 8, 2014
News: Howard is getting closer to a return from an ankle injury, but his comeback is not likely to happen Tuesday night against the Lakers, ESPN reports. Impact: If Howard does not play Tuesday, it seems likely that he would return either Wednesday against the Nuggets or Friday against the Timberwolves. He has already come out and said that if it were the playoffs, he would be playing, but both he and the team are being cautious.(RotoWire, )

News: Howard (ankle) has been ruled out for Sunday's game but says he's feeling a lot better, FOX 26 reports. Impact: Howard said he did some running on the treadmill Saturday and will try to ramp up his activity in the next couple days, but he noted that his main goal is to be healthy for the playoffs. It sounds like he could play if this were the playoffs, but the team will take a cautious approach, so owners could be without him for a couple more games.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Apr 5, 2014
News: Howard's prospects of playing Sunday seem highly doubtful, after coach Kevin McHale said Saturday that he would be "shocked" if the center took the court against the Nuggets, FOX 26 reports. Impact: Houston has now been without their starting center for four straight games due to a sprained left ankle suffered in late March. Howard had been an iron man all season prior to the ankle injury, which popped up at the absolute worst time for owners. Omer Asik should once again see plenty of run Sunday against the Nuggets, as owners should plan for Howard to be sidelined for a fifth straight game.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Apr 4, 2014
News: Howard (ankle) will not play Friday against the Thunder, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: Howard is still considered day-to-day moving forward, so the center holds a chance of returning for Sunday's game against the Nuggets. With Howard sidelined again Friday, teammate Omer Asik will receive another start.(RotoWire, )
Wed. Apr 2, 2014
News: Howard will not play on Wednesday after having his ankle drained again on Tuesday, the Houston Chronicle reports. Impact: There is still no date for when Howard will make his return, but it will not be Wednesday. Tuesday was the second time he had is ankle drained, and he believes rest is key to making his return as soon as possible. "There was more fluid in there the next time I saw the doctor," Howard said. "It was best I get the fluid out and just rest. I'm not worried." In his absence, Omer Asik has seen a lot of extra minutes, and will probably continue to do so until Howard makes his return.(RotoWire, )
