Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard said on Saturday that he will be out for the next 10 days because of a sore left ankle. The team officially listed Howard as day-to-day. Howard missed three games with the injury last week and recently had a cyst removed from the ankle. After returning earlier this week, he felt pain during the second half of Thursday's game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Howard participated in Saturday's shootaround while wearing slippers but said afterward he would not play Saturday night's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. He later told Clippers broadcaster Ralph Lawler that he would miss 10 days. The Rockets are also without starting point guard Patrick Beverley, who has a torn meniscus in his right knee.
