|Apr. 21 1:07 PM PT2:07 PM MT3:07 PM CT4:07 PM ET20:07 GMT4:07 1:07 PM MST3:07 PM EST0:07 UAE (+1)22:0716:07 ET3:07 PM CT19:07 - The NBA says the call that resulted in Houston's Dwight Howard fouling out Sunday was incorrect. Instead, the All-Star center should have received two free throws that could have given the Rockets the lead.
Analysis: Howard was called for his sixth foul with 10.8 seconds left in overtime while trying to get the rebound of James Harden's missed 3-pointer. Portland's Joel Freeland made one free throw, the final point in the Trail Blazers' 122-120 victory. But replays showed Freeland with an arm around Howard's back holding him. NBA president of operations Rod Thorn says in a statement Monday the foul should have been on Freeland.

Analysis: Howard had 15 points and eight boards as he once again allowed DeMarcus Cousins to outplay him - just like a Dec. 15 loss. He's second fiddle now to Cousins, there's no doubt about that so don't use him in games Jan. 22 and Feb. 25 vs. Sacramento.
|Dec. 29 6:37 PM PT7:37 PM MT8:37 PM CT9:37 PM ET2:37 GMT10:37 7:37 PM MST9:37 PM EST6:37 UAE (+1)03:3721:37 ET8:37 PM CT0:37 - Howard was horrendous in a 117-86 loss to the Thunder on Sunday night.

|Dec. 24 10:38 PM PT11:38 PM MT12:38 AM CT1:38 AM ET6:38 GMT14:38 11:38 PM MST1:38 AM EST10:38 UAE07:381:38 ET12:38 AM CT4:38 - Howard had 29 points and 15 rebounds in Monday's loss to Dallas.

Analysis: Howard's 36.4 field-goal percentage was his second-lowest of the season as he was just 4 of 11 from the field. His eight offensive rebounds were a season high, however.

Analysis: The Rockets have numerous players who have higher plus-minus ratings than Howard and his minutes have been going down a bit. Fantasy owners should monitor the situation since the Rockets are one of the top analytical teams in the NBA thanks to general manager Daryl Morey - who won't be afraid to sit D12 if he is not helping the team effort.
|Nov. 21 2:19 PM PT3:19 PM MT4:19 PM CT5:19 PM ET22:19 GMT6:19 3:19 PM MST5:19 PM EST2:19 UAE (+1)23:1917:19 ET4:19 PM CT20:19 - Howard has been fined $25,000 for throwing the ball into the stands late in the Rockets' loss in Dallas.
Analysis: Howard tossed the ball into the seats while turning toward the court, drawing a technical foul with 2:54 remaining in the game Wednesday night. The NBA announced the fine Thursday. Howard had a season-high 33 points and 11 rebounds so this won't affect his fantasy output.
|Nov. 12 10:26 PM PT11:26 PM MT12:26 AM CT1:26 AM ET6:26 GMT14:26 11:26 PM MST1:26 AM EST10:26 UAE07:261:26 ET12:26 AM CT4:26 - Howard exploded for 18 points and 24 rebounds in a 110-104 win over Toronto on Monday.

The Lakers can offer Howard a maximum of $118 million over five seasons, and other teams can offer $88 million over four years.
Analysis: Howard became one of the NBA's most coveted free agents when free agency opened Monday. The Lakers have made no secret they want to keep him. The Houston Rockets, the Dallas Mavericks and the Atlanta Hawks also are interested. Howard's first, and perhaps only, season in Los Angeles was a disappointment, ending in a first-round playoff sweep, and he acknowledged being unhappy at times. But the Lakers want to keep the former Defensive Player of the Year.

Analysis: And he'll meet Tuesday with the Lakers' delegation. His first - perhaps only - season in Los Angeles was a disappointment and he acknowledged being unhappy at times. But the Lakers want to keep the former Defensive Player of the Year, believing the extra year and about $30 million more they can give him will provide a huge advantage.
