Top Dwight Howard News

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Will rest Sunday

    Howard (rest) will not play Sunday against Denver, Dave McMenamin of ESPN reports.

    Howard will join Anthony Davis, LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Russell Westbrook in street clothes Sunday as the Lakers put a bow on one of the most disappointing seasons in NBA history. With the veteran big man out, Wenyen Gabriel will get the nod at center as the Lakers go with a small-ball look.

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Records double-double in loss

    Howard recorded 16 points (6-10 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal across 25 minutes during Thursday's 128-112 loss to the Warriors.

    None of LeBron James (ankle), Anthony Davis (foot), Russell Westbrook (shoulder) or Carmelo Anthony (illness) played for the Lakers on Thursday, but Howard continued his late-season surge in playing time by starting for the 11th time in the Lakers' past 12 contests. He recorded his second double-double in five games and led all players with 12 boards in the loss. Howard is averaging 12.2 points and 8.6 boards over the five-game stretch.

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Shines with 21 points, 12 boards

    Howard ended with 21 points (9-13 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 12 rebounds and one steal across 30 minutes during Thursday's 122-109 loss to Utah.

    Howard needed to step up in the absence of LeBron James (ankle) and Anthony Davis (foot), and he came through with his first double-double since late February. The veteran center even converted his first three-pointer since Dec. 9. Howard has posted two performances of 20-plus points over his past four games, but he combined for just eight points in the other two contests over that span. With Davis expected to return Friday, Howard could see his playing time drop after logging at least 24 minutes in four of his last six appearances.

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Available, starting Tuesday

    Howard (hip) will start Tuesday's game against Dallas, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Howard was probable coming in, and he'll ultimately make his fifth straight start at center. The veteran is coming off of an eight-point, 10-rebound effort in 33 minutes -- his second-highest total of the season -- Sunday against the Pels.

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Likely available Tuesday

    Howard (hip) is probable for Tuesday's contest against Dallas, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.

    Howard suffered a hip injury during Wednesday's loss to the Sixers, but the big man was still able to suit up Sunday, totaling eight points and 10 boards. Barring a setback, Howard will likely be back in the starting lineup against the Mavericks.

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Cleared to play, will start

    Howard (hip) will start Sunday's game against the Pelicans, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    Howard emerged from Wednesday's loss to the Sixers with a sore hip, but he'll push through it and make his fifth straight start at center. In that loss, Howard had one of his best games of the season, finishing with 24 points, eight rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in 28 minutes -- his second-highest workload in any game this season.

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Questionable against New Orleans

    Howard is questionable for Sunday's game against the Pelicans due to hip soreness, Harrison Faigen of SBNation.com reports.

    Howard posted 24 points in Wednesday's loss to Philadelphia and came within two rebounds of a double-double, but he apparently hurt his hip in the matchup. If he's unavailable Sunday, Wenyen Gabriel and Carmelo Anthony should see additional run.

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Turns back clock with 24 points

    Howard ended with 24 points (9-14 FG, 6-9 FT), eight rebounds, one assist, one block and one steal over 28 minutes during Wednesday's 126-121 loss to the 76ers.

    Howard registered his highest scoring output of the season, surpassing the 14-point total he had previously posted on two separate occasions. The veteran center also logged his second-most playing time of the campaign, and he finished with his highest rebound total since Feb. 27. Howard has started each of the last four contests in which he has played, but he logged less than 20 minutes in two of those games and finished with a DNP-CD on Saturday. The inconsistent playing time makes him difficult to roster in most fantasy formats.

  • Lakers' Dwight Howard: Back in starting lineup

    Howard will start Monday's game against the Cavaliers, Mike Trudell of Spectrum SportsNet reports.

    The Lakers will play the matchup game and go with a traditional big man to combat the Cavaliers' Evan Mobley. Howard was a DNP-CD during Saturday night's 127-119 loss to the Wizards.
