Dwight Howard could miss a month of action

BY foxsports • February 4, 2015

Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard will miss approximately four weeks of action thanks to a lingering knee injury that will not get better if he stays on the floor. 

The Rockets says Howard had a bone marrow aspirate injection on his right knee. It was conducted by Dr. Walt Lowe of the Memorial Hermann Sports Medicine Institute in Houston. Howard will begin rehab immediately and will be re-evaluated in approximately four weeks, the team said. A fluid buildup in the knee prompted the Rockets to rule Howard out of this past weekend's trip to Detroit and Boston. Sources told ESPN's Marc Stein at the time that the Rockets were fearing their star center would be gone at least a month. Pain in the same knee forced Howard to miss 11 games earlier this season.
