I reported on November 28 that Howard, who has been out with a right knee strain, would miss the game against the Clippers.
Jonathan Feigen, who covers the Rockets for the Houston Chronicle, tweeted the following quote from coach Kevin McHale on Howard.
McHale : "We probably won't have Dwight through the weekend. "Rotoworld.com also added that there basically hasn't been any good news on Howard since he was a late scratch from the lineup against the Lakers on November 19. Expect Tarik Black, Donatas Motiejunas and perhaps Joey Dorsey to see the bulk of the minutes at power forward and center in Howard's absence.
