HOUSTON (AP) Houston center Dwight Howard will miss his second straight game on Saturday night against Dallas with a strained right knee.

Howard also missed Wednesday's game against the Lakers and there is no timetable for his return.

The Rockets have lost two in a row after opening the season 9-1.

Howard is averaging 18.8 points, 11.3 rebounds and 2.3 blocks per game in his second season with Houston. Rockets rookie Tarik Black will likely start in his place.
