HOUSTON, TX – Rockets center Dwight Howard isn’t expecting to play for another six to eight weeks.  Howard underwent an MRI on the nagging injury in his right knee.  It showed no structural damage in his knee.

Rockets head coach, Kevin McHale, says the team is used to playing without Howard.

“Dwight was out for half of training camp. He was out for five weeks November-December. It’s more of us having to get adjusted to Dwight than us getting adjusted to without him. When he comes back, it’ll be a bigger adjustment,” McHale said.

“It’s not about finding a rhythm or none of that it’s just about whoever is out there, next man up,” Rockets point guard Pat Beverley added.

Houston heads out west for its final two games before the All-Star break. The Rockets visit the Phoenix Suns on Tuesday, before facing the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday.
