A few days ago, Houston Rockets' center Dwight Howard expected to be out for about 10 days. He told Ralph Lawler, the Los Angeles Clippers' play-by-play announcer, he was going to miss 10 days of action. However, the Rockets have been listing him as day-to-day with the ankle injury he suffered in early March when he had a cyst removed from his ankle.

While he may officially be day-to-day, he won't play Tuesday night when the Rockets visit the Brooklyn Nets.

Howard has played in four of the team's last six games and missed the last game when the Rockets played the Clippers. Those four games are the only contests he's missed for the Rockets this season. The team is 3-1 in those games with a loss to the Clippers and wins over the Jazz, Wolves, and Cavaliers.
