Dwight Howard Likely Back Wednesday, Patrick Beverley Possibly Out for Season

The Houston Rockets received both good news and bad news on Tuesday. First, the good news:

Dwight Howard went through a practice session in Indiana and felt good, and as long as there are no setbacks, the big man will return against the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday after a 26-game absence due to a knee injury. The Rockets went 17-9 without Howard, thanks in large part to the brilliance of James Harden. But getting Howard back for the stretch run should be a big help for Houston’s title hopes, especially if he comes back feeling fresh and healthier than earlier in the year.

And now, the bad news:

This would be a tough blow for the Rockets, as Beverley is a capable three-point shooter (35.6 percent) and hard-nosed defender at the point-guard position. Houston has been rocked by injuries all season, and this one comes at a terrible time.
