Our own Tim Hanrahan reported that Howard was out with a right knee strain and there was no timetable for his return. As for Beverley, he missed six of the first nine games of the season while battling a hamstring injury, according to our own Emily Gruver.
Jonathan Feigen, who covers the Rockets for the Houston Chronicle, tweeted the following update on Howard and Beverley.
McHale indicates he doesn't expect Howard or Beverley back Friday either. Will likely want a practice before either returns.Expect Tarik Black, Kostas Papanikolaou and Isaiah Canaan see additional playing time with Howard and Beverley out of the lineup.
