Persistent knee issues. Out 6-8 weeks, maybe more. Knee woes plaguing Dwight Howard Updated: February 1, 2015, 12:02 AM ET By Marc Stein | ESPN.com The Houston Rockets are bracing for the loss of Dwight Howard for at least a month due to persistent trouble with his right knee, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN.com that the Rockets, while confident that Howard ‎has enough time to bounce back for the regular-season stretch run and playoffs, fear their defensive anchor will be lost for a period of "weeks" as opposed to days. The Rockets expect Dwight Howard to miss at least another month with persistent knee....

More signs of him breaking down....Not surprised and just before anyone says anything, I have no ill will towards him. No reason for me to have it just in case someone mentions it.

Hopefully, which I'm sure it will, this will weaken Houston's defense. They're currently the 5th seed in the West. If Dwight is out 6-8 weeks, they might fall to the 7th seed. Hoping we can capitalize on Houston's pick.

News today is it's another 8 weeks. Could be more. He'll be re-evaluated after 6. But unlikely to come back before 8 more. Interesting to note, the rockets record is exactly the same with and without DH12. Without him they would be a lot lighter in the pocket. Since his presence isn't earning them any more wins than without. You'd have to wonder what the future holds.

Dwight is a great athlete but not a smart player. I think he makes decisions that harm his game and body. He does not make any adjustments to his game to improve his offense or motions that will preserve his body. I am not surprised at this at all. I think the NBA has seen the best of Dwight and he will never win an NBA championship. Personally, I wish he had never come to LA. That was the turning point in the current Lakers decline.
