Things got even more scary for Rockets fans and employees alike when Howard was forced to leave the arena in a walking boot, per an Associated Press report.

"I really couldn't put any pressure on it," Howard said after the game. "But we got the win, so that's the only thing that matters."

Howard is currently being listed as day-to-day by most sites as no information on an exact recovery time has been released to the press.
