Dwight Howard bounced back vs. his former team on Sunday, finishing a tough loss in L.A. with 19 points on 9-of-13 shooting, nine rebounds, three assists, two blocks, one steal and four turnovers.
Howard narrowly missed his 12th double-double of the season, but he's still tied for fourth in that category behind Hassan Whiteside (13), James Harden (14) and Russell Westbrook (14). The Hawks have now lost five of their past six games, and on Monday they play the second half of a back-to-back set vs. the Warriors. Good luck. Nov 28 - 12:44 AM

Dwight Howard struggled in Friday's loss to the Jazz, scoring four points with seven rebounds and one block in 27 minutes.

He was 2-of-9 from the field and didn't collect a rebound until the second quarter or score until the fourth quarter. Howard was coming off a dominant 23-point, 20-rebound effort against the Pacers on Wednesday, but Rudy Gobert tends to have this effect on opposing centers. Howard will have plenty of motiavtion to have a big "revenge game" against the Lakers on Sunday.
Nov 25 - 11:13 PM

Dwight Howard dominated the Pacers on Wednesday with 23 points and a season-high 20 rebounds (nine offensive), sinking 10-of-12 shots with one assist and three turnovers in 33 minutes.

The Hawks snapped a three-game losing streak tonight, earning a 96-85 road win in Indiana. Howard overpowered Myles Turner and the Pacers' frontcourt, helping the Hawks pile up a 48-34 advantage for points in the paint, along with a massive 56-37 edge in rebounds. Howard played just 19 minutes during Tuesday's blowout, so this was a nice way to atone.
Nov 23 - 10:50 PM

Dwight Howard played just 19 minutes to finish with eight points, a season-low six rebounds and three blocks in Tuesday's blowout loss to the Pelicans.

This thing was over nearly as quickly as the Goldberg vs. Lesner wrestling showdown on Sunday, as the Pelicans won the first quarter 34-14. The Hawks starters didn't get much run the rest of the way, as Mike Budenholzer appeared to wave the white flag. The reeling Hawks have lost three straight games to inferior teams and will try to get the ship righted on Wednesday against a banged up Pacers team ripe for the taking.
Nov 22 - 10:20 PM

Dwight Howard posted a huge 18-point, 18-board double-double during Sunday's 104-94 loss to the Knicks, adding two blocks and one turnover through 29 minutes of action.

Howard was 6-of-11 from the field and 6-of-12 from the stripe, which is your quintessential D12 stat line. He looks revitalized playing for his hometown team in Atlanta, and if you ignore Howard’s horrific free throw shooting, he's a first-round talent.
Nov 20 - 3:05 PM

Dwight Howard (quad) was ejected on Friday vs. the Hornets.

He threw an elbow into the face of Cody Zeller and received a flagrant-2 foul. We wouldn't rule out a suspension, but we won't know for sure until Saturday. At least Howard looked healthy in his return to action, scoring 10 points with 18 rebounds, two assists, three steals and two blocks in 31 minutes, shooting 4-of-9 from the field and 2-of-6 from the line.
Nov 18 - 9:05 PM

Dwight Howard (quad) will start next to Dennis Schroder, Kyle Korver, Kent Bazemore and Paul Millsap against the Hornets on Friday.

He should be good to go and was dunking in pre-game. Mike Muscala has been tremendous and he may take minutes from Dwight in his first game back.
Nov 18 - 7:07 PM

Dwight Howard (quad) will play against the Hornets on Friday.

Howard sat out Wednesday but will be back in the lineup on Friday. Howard is producing solid numbers for the Hawks this season, averaging 14.8 points, 12.3 rebounds, 1.7 blocks and 1.4 steals, while shooting a stellar 62.2 percent from the floor but just 49.3 percent from the free throw stripe.
Nov 18 - 11:49 AM

Dwight Howard (quad) is questionable to play against the Hornets on Friday.

He was a game-time decision for Wednesday and did not play. Howard's quad contusion doesn't sound serious and Friday's game isn't on a back-to-back set. If he's out again, Mike Muscala gets another big bump for fantasy value. Muscala is currently first among qualifiers for field goal percentage and Howard is No. 2.
Nov 17 - 4:34 PM

Dwight Howard (quad) will not play against the Bucks on Wednesday and Mike Muscala will start.

He was a game-time call due to his Tuesday injury. Muscala has been outstanding in the second unit all season and is a big reason why the Hawks are doing so well in the standings. He should get big minutes and plenty of shots in the first unit tonight, so fire him up in DFS or as a streaming play.
Nov 16 - 6:34 PM

Dwight Howard (left quad contusion) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's game against the Bucks.

"It swelled up pretty bad," Howard said after Tuesday's game. "We are trying to make sure it doesn’t swell up anymore. I tried to come in the back and get as much ice on it as I could so it won’t swell. Some of the swelling did go down. It’s super tight right now. Really painful. I wanted to come back out there but they said it wasn’t worth it this early in the season." With this being the second game of a back-to-back, D12 is probably closer to doubtful. Mike Muscala will likely draw the start if he's out.
Nov 16 - 1:29 PM

Dwight Howard (left quad contusion) will be re-evaluated on Wednesday morning.

Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer said Howard has some swelling in the quad area, but we won't know more until Wednesday morning. It's a little worrying that Howard wasn't able to return to a close game, and unfortunately for the Hawks, they have a game on Wednesday vs. the Bucks. Mike Muscala scored 14 points with five rebounds, four assists, one steal and two treys in 22 minutes, and he will benefit the most if Howard misses time.
Nov 15 - 10:28 PM

Dwight Howard (left quad contusion) will not return to Tuesday's game vs. the Heat.

It's a little worrying that Howard can't return to such a close game, but there's no word on the severity of the injury. Howard finished with 11 points, 11 rebounds, one assist, three steals and five turnovers in 25 minutes. Mike Muscala will benefit if Howard misses time and is a nice speculative pickup if you need a big.
Nov 15 - 9:22 PM

Dwight Howard left Tuesday's game vs. the Heat and went back to the locker room.

There has been no update from the Hawks and there's no word of an injury just yet. We'll have an update momentarily.
Nov 15 - 9:15 PM

Dwight Howard hit 3-of-5 shots and 1-of-4 free throws for seven points, 18 rebounds, two assists and three blocks in Tuesday's surprising win at Cleveland.

This was the most boards he's hauled in since opening night, when he had 19, and the first time he hadn't scored at least 20 points in three games. Howard's off to a hot start for the Hawks, who are now 5-2, and this game simply wasn't a good one for centers, as Tristan Thompson didn't even score and had just two boards in 25 minutes. Howard looks like one of the better value picks in fantasy drafts this year.
