76ers' Dwight Howard: Double-double in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard recorded 14 points (5-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), 12 rebounds and one block in 26 minutes during Philadelphia's 134-123 loss to Utah on Monday.

With Joel Embiid (back) out of the lineup, Howard played an increased role and came away with his third double-double of the season. While Mike Scott got the start, it was Howard who saw the majority of the minutes at center due to Scott coming off a knee injury. In the four games in which Howard has played at least 25 minutes this season, he has pulled down an average of 14.0 rebounds per game. The veteran has been a valuable presence in his first season with Philadelphia, averaging 6.0 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. If Embiid ends up missing any additional time, Howard would be in line for a larger role.

76ers' Dwight Howard: Performs well in limited minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard put up eight points (3-5 FG, 2-2 FT), nine rebounds, four assists and two blocked shots across 13 minutes in a win over Sacramento on Tuesday.

Howard just missed out on a double-double while dishing a season-high four dimes despite logging only 13 minutes on the court. He has proven to be a valuable asset off the bench for the 76ers in his first year with the squad, posting per-game averages of 5.9 points, 7.8 boards and 0.9 blocks. The veteran doesn't play enough minutes to be more than an occasional streamer for rebounds and swats in fantasy leagues, though his per-36-minutes averages of 16.5 boards and 2.0 blocks suggest that he can still make a big impact on the court when given the opportunity.

76ers' Dwight Howard: Starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard will start Monday's game against the Pistons with Joel Embiid (back) out, Rod Beard of the Detroit News reports.

It will be the fourth start of the season for Howard, who put up eight points, 18 rebounds, three blocks and three assists in 34 minutes last time he filled in for Embiid. Over his last three games, Howard has averaged 9.7 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in just 15.3 minutes off the bench.

76ers' Dwight Howard: Grabs 18 boards in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard scored eight points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 2-8 FT) while adding 18 rebounds, three assists and three blocks across 34 minutes in Saturday's loss against the Grizzlies.

Howard got the start in place of Joel Embiid, who is slated to miss at least two games due to a right knee injury, and while his scoring figures were poor, he delivered a season-high mark in rebounds. Howard is not expected to be the dominant two-way threat he once was and has scored in double digits just twice this season, but he can be a reliable streaming option while Embiid is out, especially in category-based leagues.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard tallied nine points (4-6 FG, 1-4 FT), 13 rebounds and one assist in the 118-101 victory over the Hornets.

Howard has now gone over 10 rebounds twice this season despite not even hitting 20 minutes in any contest. The 35-year old saw his most minutes on the floor, as the game was well in hand from the beginning. Even with the extended playing time, Howard still has yet to put up 10 points in a game this season.

76ers' Dwight Howard: Solid production off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard recorded nine points (4-7 FG, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, one block and one steal in a win at New York on Saturday.

Most of Howard's production came from an impressive seven-point run he had during the second quarter. He remains a serviceable scoring and rebounding option, but his fantasy value seems more limited than ever. Howard is averaging just 14.5 minutes of playing time serving as Joel Embiid's backup.

76ers' Dwight Howard: Scores well in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard scored 14 points (7-7 FG) to go along with four rebounds in 16 minutes in the 76ers preseason win over the Pacers on Friday.

Howard got the start with Joel Embiid (illness) sidelined. He didn't miss a shot and rebounded well in his limited minutes, though he also turned the ball over five times and racked up four fouls. Howard should be a decent source of points and boards, even though he'll primarily serve as Embiid's backup. .

The 34-year-old averaged 7.5 points and 7.3 rebounds across 18.9 minutes in 69 games for the Lakers last season.

Lakers' Dwight Howard: To move to bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard is expected to shift to the bench for Sunday's Game 6 of the NBA Finals against the Heat, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Howard made an impact early in the series, but his play has tailed off of late, and he was a glaring negative for the Lakers in Friday's Game 5 loss. As a result, the Lakers will shake up the lineup and go with a smaller unit featuring Alex Caruso as another perimeter-oriented option.

Lakers' Dwight Howard: Double-doubles in starting role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard finished with 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes during Thursday's 114-108 victory over the Nuggets.

Howard shifted into the starting lineup for Game 4, turning in a productive performance. He did most of his damage in the first quarter, tallying eight points and eight rebounds in just eight minutes. Based on what we have seen thus far during the series, Howard appears as though he will remain in the starting lineup moving forward. JaVale McGee played only five minutes in the victory and has struggled to have any impact on either end of the floor.

Lakers' Dwight Howard: Starting Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Howard will start Thursday's Game 4 against the Nuggets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Howard's move to the starting lineup will send JaVale McGee to bench. After a strong performance in Game 1, the big man posted a pair of quiet performances the past two contests. He'll be used primarily as a defensive asset to match up with Nikola Jokic, but Howard has shown he can score when given the opportunity.
