Dwight Howard will not be with the Rockets on the back-to-back to Boston and Detroit.

Howard Chen

Was curious what an edema was. Here's what I found at the following link: orthopedics.about.com/od/hipknee/a/m… #DwightHoward http://t.co/iEQqHXzAj1

David Hardisty

What's concerning about the Dwight injury is this is his right knee again. He was currently sitting out for his right ankle.

Mike Tokito

Pardon me, I'm looking at 3 things at one time. Rockets are .692 w/o Dwight Howard, .696 with him, more or less the same pace.

Howard Chen

Dwight Howard underwent MRI, evaluation revealed edema in his right knee. Will be evaluated further in the coming days. #RedNation

David Hardisty

Via the Rockets: Dwight Howard underwent an MRI, revealing edema in his right knee. He will be "evaluated further in the coming days."

Jenny Dial Creech

News on Howard: Dwight Howard underwent an MRI today. The evaluation revealed edema in his right knee.

Jonathan Feigen

An MRI on Dwight Howard's right knee today showed edema (fluid buildup). The team said he will be reevaluated in the coming days.

Dwain Price

You got to love Dwight Powell's activity. And Aminu's, too.

Earl K. Sneed

Wow. Go get that board then, Dwight Powell. #DALatHOU

Jonathan Feigen

Rockets defense just looks completely different without Dwight inside. Didn't show against Lakers, for obvious reasons. A mess tonight.

Dwain Price

No Dwight Howard tonight for the #Rockets. Then again, Houston beat the #Mavs earlier this year in this building without Howard.

Jenny Dial Creech

Joey Dorsey starting in place of Dwight Howard tonight. #Rockets #Mavericks starting in about 2 minutes.

Jonathan Feigen

With Dwight Howard out, Joey Dorsey gets his second-consecutive start at center for Rockets.

Mark Followill

Mavs at Houston, 7p on @FSSouthwest. Terrence Jones returns for 1st game since Nov. Dwight Howard doubtful...more on Mavs Live at 630

Howard Chen

Terrence Jones will play. Meanwhile, McHale says he doubts Dwight Howard will be able to play tonight. #DALvsHOU

Tim MacMahon

Kevin McHale said Terrence Jones will play 15-20 minutes tonight after being out for months. "Shocked" if Dwight Howard plays vs. Mavs.

Jenny Dial Creech

McHale said Terrence Jones will play tonight. Does not think Dwight Howard will play.

Mark Followill

Reminder, Mavs are back on @FSSouthwest tonight, 7p from Houston. The Rockets Dwight Howard is a game-time decision with an ankle injury

Jenny Dial Creech

As expected, Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones are both questionable, game time decisions for tonight vs. Dallas.

Howard Chen

Both Dwight Howard and Terrence Jones are listed as questionable w update coming pregame. #RedNation

Jonathan Feigen

Game-time decision. Listed as questionable. RT @AlekxiousDiaz: @Jonathan Feigen is Dwight out?

Amin Elhassan

Nobody hates Houston..but I do think Dwight & Harden get under ppl skins by just BEING RT @jamberg_: @Amin Elhassan @Israel Gutierrez it's Houston right?

Jenny Dial Creech

Dwight Howard is a game time decision for tomorrow night vs. Mavericks.

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard (ankle) and Terrence Jones (nerve inflammation) questionable to play vs. Mavs tmrw. First change in Jones' status in months.

The NBA is paying tribute to Chinese New Year w/ jerseys for the first time. Here: Dwight Howard and Harrison Barnes. http://t.co/NZakknxWag

Beto Duran

All smiles, Dwight chants along to "Howard sucks" chant from Lakers fans

Ryan Ward

“Howard Sucks!” chants @STAPLESCenter Dwight laughing on the Rockets bench about it with Houston up 14.

Mark Medina

A "Howard Sucks" chant is breaking out. Dwight seems to enjoy it as he sits on the bench wearing a blue suit. What a sad state of affairs

Jonathan Feigen

Dwight Howard smiling and singing along the 'Howard sucks" chant.

Gary Lee

Thought Marcus and Markieff Morris were the only twins in the NBA, but I forgot about Dwight Howard and Joey Dorsey of the Houston Rockets.

Janis Carr

Denzel Washington is here for the first time this season. Must have been hoping for that Kobe-Dwight rematch

Baxter Holmes

Dwight Howard walks to Rockets’ bench and is greeted by hearty boos from Lakers fans here at Staples Center.

Beto Duran

No Kobe. No Dwight. But Denzel & Mayweather at Lakers vs Rockets game.

Gary Lee

Dwight Howard - DNP, Soft. http://t.co/ymofxSiWFF

John Ireland

No Kobe for Lakers. No Dwight for Rockets. But Tarik Black is back, so there's that. Game starts now on @ESPNLosAngeles 710 AM

Mike Trudell

Dwight Howard also missed the last Lakers-Rockets game with an injury (was a last-minute scratch). LAL won the game.

Mike Trudell

Kevin McHale confirmed that Dwight Howard (ankle) won't play tonight.

Kristina Leahy

Dwight Howard told me he wouldn't play tonight even if Kobe was in the lineup. On Kobe: "People get mad when you leave their team."

Jonathan Feigen

As expected, Joey Dorsey to start with Dwight Howard out,

Kurt Helin

Kevin McHale confirms Dwight Howard will not play tonight

Ryan Ward

No Dwight Howard tonight. No Kobe Bryant. Translation: All James Harden.

No Dwight Howard. No Kobe Bryant. Tonight's game diminished juuust a bit.
