Dwight Howard leaves game with sprained ankle, will not return

In the first minute of the Rockets hosting the Pistons Wednesday, there was a big collision with Andre Drummond that sent both Dwight Howard and Ty Lawson to the ground.

In the process, Howard rolled his ankle. He left the game, went back to the locker room, and the Rockets have announced he is not returning to the game. There is no other word on the severity of the sprain.

Howard has missed seven games for the Rockets this season after battling injuries the past few seasons.
