Coach Frank Vogel said Thursday that Howard will start Friday's game against the Clippers, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reports.

Howard came off the bench in Tuesday's win over the Kings and totaled 12 points, 13 rebounds, two steals and two blocks in 35 minutes. Vogel added that Howard shouldn't be considered the long-term starter, and the starting job at center will be evaluated on a game-by-game basis.
