Dwight Howard injury: Houston Rockets’ star out 10 days


 

Houston Rockets’ center Dwight Howard has played in the Rockets’ last two games after missing the previous three with an ankle injury.

It looks like Howard will not be in action when his Rockets take on the Los Angeles Clippers in a huge Western Conference showdown Saturday night.

Ralph Lawler, the Los Angeles Clippers’ play-by-play man, reports Howard will be out for 10 days.

Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle has not heard the same.

Lawler could certainly be correct – the Rockets obviously want to make sure Howard is 100% for the playoffs.

Howard is averaging 18.5 points, 12.3 rebounds, 1.8 blocks and 1.8 assists for the Rockets this season.
