• Dwight Howard
    C, Washington Wizards

    Dwight Howard (gluteal soreness) is listed as questionable to face the Pelicans on Saturday.

    Howard has missed the last two contests as the Wizards continue to monitor him. His back pain is expected to be a continuous theme this season as it looks like the 32-year-old, former three-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year is nearing the end of his run. Thomas Bryant has started each of the last two games and is averaging 18.4 minutes, 7.0 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.5 blocks over that span. He and Markieff Morris will continue benefiting the most with Howard out.
