Dwight Howard hit 9-of-12 shots and 3-of-6 free throws for 21 points, 17 rebounds, a steal and four blocks in Monday's 118-107 win over Andre Drummond and the Pistons.
Dwight destroyed Drummond today, holding him to just three points, and posted his sixth game of the season with at least 20 points and 15 rebounds. Only DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis have more of those than Howard, and if you discount free throw percentage, he's been worth a fifth-round pick this season. Jan 15 - 3:21 PM

Dwight Howard finished with 11 points, 17 rebounds and three blocked shots over 34 minutes in Saturday's 101-91 loss against the Thunder.

Howard is enjoying a bit of a renaissance since landing in the Queen City. While his shooting percentage (53.4 percent) is down a tad, his points per game are his highest since 2014-15 (15.5 PPG). He is also averaging over 30 minutes per game for just the second time in the past four seasons. The 32-year-old is healthy and remains a solid No. 1 center in most fantasy formats.
Jan 13 - 8:22 PM

Dwight Howard notched 15 points, 12 rebounds, four blocks, two assists and one steal in a tough loss to the visiting Mavericks on Wednesday.

Dallas allows the fourth most opponent rebounds per game, so Dwight was a lock for a double-double tonight. He hit all five of his field goals, but was an atrocious 5-of-18 from the FT line. That's nothing new for fantasy owners, but it was a huge difference in a game Charlotte lost by four points. Overall, Dwight's fantasy owners have to be thrilled that he's stayed healthy while averaging a strong double-double with defensive stats.
Jan 10 - 10:48 PM

Dwight Howard scored 15 points to go along with 10 rebounds and two blocked shots in Friday's 108-94 win against the Lakers, his former team.

Howard was showered with boos in his return to Staples Center, a tradition by L.A. fans since he left after his only season with the Lakers in 2013 to join the Houston Rockets via free agency. Perhaps the fans are salty because the Lakers haven't made the playoffs since Howard left them.
Jan 6 - 1:40 AM

Dwight Howard struggled against DeAndre Jordan and the Clippers on Sunday, scoring four points on 1-of-9 shooting with five turnovers and four personal fouls in 35 minutes.

It wasn't all bad, with Dwight getting 10 rebounds, two assists and two steals, while sinking both of his free throw attempts. His lack of blocks and poor shooting tonight are aberrations and he should torch the Kings frontcourt on Tuesday, but the turnovers are here to stay. His 3.4 turnovers per game are eighth-most in the league, and among centers he trails only DeMarcus Cousins and Joel Embiid.

Dwight Howard finished with 29 points, 12 rebounds, seven assists and two steals over 40 minutes in Friday's 111-100 win at Golden State.

Howard was a very efficient 10-of-15 from the field, and he was a respectable 9-of-12 from the free-throw stripe. The 29 points were a season high, and he has now recorded three double-doubles in a row, his longest streak with at least 10 points and 10 rebounds since a six-game run to close out November.

Dwight Howard made 3-of-10 from the field for 12 points with 17 rebounds, three assists, one steal, two blocks and three turnovers against the Celtics on Wednesday.

He was 0-of-5 from the field to start this game and the Celtics did do one Hack-A-Dwight possession, as well. Aron Baynes made life tough on Howard for the second straight game with this one and a six-point game back on Nov. 10. Howard is having a fairly strong year and he has started every game this season.

Hornets acting coach Stephen Silas said he was worried Dwight Howard's finger injury would sideline him for a while.

"Last night, I wasn’t sure if it was going to be a month or two months," he said after Saturday’s 111-106 win, "based on the way it kind of looked and the way it was popping out or whatever." Howard was sporting a splint on his ring finger, but he powered through the injury and scored 21 points with 16 rebounds across 32 minutes. His fantasy owners obviously dodged a bullet here and he gets a few days of rest before Wednesday's game vs. Boston.

Dwight Howard (finger) was able to start Saturday's game against the Bucks and he scored 21 points with 16 rebounds across 32 minutes in the 111-106 win.

Howard also chipped in with two assists and two blocked shots while hitting 7-of-11 from the field. The finger was obviously not a problem, and his presence bothered the Giannis Antetokounmpo-less Bucks all night long. It was Howard's best shooting night in a while, as he entered shooting 41.0 percent (16-of-39) over the past five outings while averaging just 10.4 PPG.

Dwight Howard (finger) is listed as a starter vs. Milwaukee on Saturday.

Dwight left Friday's game after dislocating his right ring finger, but that shouldn't limit him in a favorable matchup vs. John Henson and the Bucks.

Dwight Howard (finger) will warm up with the intent to play against the Bucks on Saturday.

He hurt his right ring finger in the first quarter on Friday, but he did not return due to a dislocation. Assuming Howard is a go, he may not be limited too much and he's probably not going to have many jumpers anyway. This is a hit to Frank Kaminsky and Marvin Williams.

Dwight Howard (left ring finger dislocation) is listed as questionable on the injury report for Saturday's game vs. Milwaukee.

Howard injured the finger in the first quarter of Friday's loss to Milwaukee and was unable to return to the game. Kemba Walker (head) is also listed as questionable for Saturday. If Howard is unable to suit up, Frank Kaminsky would likely be the primary beneficiary and would be worth a look as a streaming option or DFS dart throw. Johnny O'Bryant would also see an uptick in minutes.

Dwight Howard did not return to Friday's game vs. the Bucks after suffering a dislocated left ring finger.

The Hornets called him questionable to return, but they never provided an update after that. The big man said after the game that his left ring finger kept popping out and that he didn't know if he could play on Saturday. If Howard is out, Frank Kaminsky looks like the pickup after he started the third quarter and scored 16 points in 30 minutes. Johnny O'Bryant also saw a bump in playing time, scoring three points with seven rebounds, one assist and one 3-pointer in 18 minutes.

Dwight Howard is questionable to return to Friday's game vs. the Bucks with a dislocated left ring finger.

Howard was holding his finger in a lot of pain and tried to play through it after getting taped up, but now he's in the locker room getting evaluated. The Hornets are already shorthanded with Cody Zeller (knee) out a while, so Frank Kaminsky and Johnny O'Bryant will have to step up if Howard can't return.
