Dwight Howard said he hopes he can have a career as long as the one his Wednesday night opponent — Tim Duncan — has had in San Antonio. Duncan, 38, has played 17 years in the NBA and is still starting for the Spurs and is considered to be one of the best big men in the league. “That’s always been my goal- to play 20 years in the league so I think it can be done,” said Howard, who is in his 11th NBA season. “It would be great. Tim (Duncan) is still playing great basketball. He has migrated to different spots on the floor instead of just the post.” Houston Chronicle

A young center with All-Star potential, Nik Vucevic knows enough Magic history to realize the franchise's two best big men left town and broke hearts. Vucevic, 24, is determined not to follow the footsteps of Shaquille O'Neal and Dwight Howard out of Orlando. "Yeah, I'm here for the long haul. I hope to stay here my whole career," he told me. "I love it here. I really love the city. I've improved here a lot as a player. I'd love to stay for a long, long time and make something special happen. "If it takes years, it takes years … I ain't going anywhere." Orlando Sentinel

The Houston Rockets are targeting Wednesday night's game in New Orleans as the return for center Dwight Howard. The Rockets, barring any late audibles, intend to bring Howard back from a 26-game absence in Wednesday's road game against the Pelicans and limit him to 20 minutes per game in the early stages of his return from season-long knee troubles. Howard officially is listed as questionable on the team's injury report. ESPN.com

Dwight Howard will play on Wednesday against New Orleans if “he’s feeling good,” Rockets coach Kevin McHale said. Howard said he was feeling good after a practice session in Indiana. So expect to see him in New Orleans after being out since Jan. 25 (26 games) with a knee problem. He missed another 12 games earlier in the season with other maladies (flu, ankle, knee). Houston is 25-13 with Howard on the bench. Houston Chronicle

Ask him where his MVP trophies are, and Steve Nash isn't so sure. Invite him to go back and figuratively rewrite the ending to the playoff heartbreak of his choice, just for the sport of it, and Nash says there's no need. Remind him of that Sports Illustrated cover, on which he's bouncing giddily alongside Dwight Howard and a headline proclaiming how much fun was in store, and Nash can only acknowledge that "nothing worked out the way we intended it to work out." "It wasn't as much fun as we thought," Nash said with a chuckle meant as much as anything to convey chagrin. ESPN.com
