Rockets center Dwight Howard tried to maintain the usual upbeat manner, but his disappointment was clear.
He had been ready to test his sprained left ankle. He had a good day of rehab on Friday. He returned to the practice court Saturday to test himself. He did not like the results.
“I did some running today. Still couldn’t do a lot,” Howard said. “Hopefully, it will feel better tomorrow. I thought I was going to be ready to run today, but it wasn’t working.”
