HOUSTON (AP) - Rockets center Dwight Howard is out against the Minnesota Timberwolves with a mild left ankle strain.

This will be the second straight game Howard has missed with the injury. He was the only Rockets player to start all 66 games this season before his injury kept him out for the first time on Monday.

Howard, in his first season with Houston, is averaging 18.6 points, and his 12.4 rebounds per game rank fourth in the NBA.

Omer Asik will start in his place Thursday night.
