Rockets' head coach Kevin McHale said he doesn't expect to have Dwight Howard (knee, ankle) back in uniform "for a while." Jay King on Twitter
The Scoop: Things aren't looking good for Dwight. An MRI revealed fluid buildup in his right knee on Wednesday, and there was a report that he was seeking a second opinion and he could miss "extended time" on Thursday. McHale's words go along with the extended absence theme, and it'll be Donatas Motiejunas, Josh Smith, and Terrence Jones seeing a majority of the big man minutes with Howard sidelined.
