Dwight Howard and Trevor Ariza will not play Thursday at Orlando.

Just a simple evening of rest of the pair of Houston starters. Wednesday night marks Houston's final preseason game, so Howard and Ariza will participate in practice only for the next couple of days before their opening night contest against the Lakers.

Dwight Howard will sit out the second half of Sunday's game.

Howard has been dealing with some minor ailments lately, and the Rockets are most likely just giving their star center some rest. Howard should be ready for Houston's season opener at full strength.

Coach Kevin McHale says Jason Terry got in a good practice Friday and he hopes he'll get to play in a game on this road trip, maybe by Wednesday in Orlando.

Terry hasn't appeared in a preseason game yet, but he did return to practice last weekend. The hamstring injury has been problematic through training camp, but he seems to be at the tail-end of his recovery and should be back shortly.

James Harden (hip) went through a full practice Thursday.

This fantasy beast is dealing with a minor hip issue, but it isn't something that is going to keep him out action. He's easily a top ten pick headed into fantasy basketball drafts.

Update: Dwight Howard (knee) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

This is par for the course with a guy like Howard. It's a long season and given his body type he is more prone to injuries. He was limited on Thursday, but he is actually quite healthy and will look to be a force underneath the hoop this year.

Dwight Howard (knee) is hopeful he will play in the Rockets next game.

The big man is looking to stay healthy for the entire season so missing a few preseason games is par for the course. He is battling a knee injury, but it isn't considered serious. Expect to see him in action before the regular season commences.
