Dwight Howard

Houston Rockets center Dwight Howard has been suspended for the 2015-16 season opener, after racking up four flagrant foul points during the 2015 postseason.

The NBA reviewed a common foul the Rockets big man committed while setting a pick on Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala Game 5 of the Western Conference finals and upgraded it to a flagrant foul 1.

Howard hit Iguodala in the neck area with a forearm.

Also, the league rescinded the technical fouls Howard and Warriors center Andrew Bogut received in the second quarter of Game 5.
