HOUSTON (CBS HOUSTON) – The Houston Rockets big off season free agent signing, Dwight Howard, rested a sore foot at practice Tuesday after getting precautionary x-rays on that foot.  The X-rays came back negative for any broken bones.

Howard doesn’t think it will be an issue.  After practice Tuesday, Howard told reporters the team just wanted to give the foot some rest.

“Just sore.  They wanted to rest me,” Howard said. “Nothing major just a precaution.”

“I wasn’t really worried about it,” Howard said of getting X-rays on the foot. “It was nothing really serious, wasn’t a worry.”

Just the fourth day of training camp and with Howard having a history of injuries that have kept him of court the word of X-rays on a sore foot could be a sign of trouble.

Howard takes it as part of the territory of getting back on the court after a long off-season.

“It’s part of (training camp),” Howard said. “We’re doing a lot of running and moving.  Stuff that a lot of us haven’t done all summer. It happens.  The main thing is to be ready come October 31st.”

The Rockets said that they expect him to be back at practice on Wednesday.

There was not a specific point of Howard’s foot that was injured, the Rockets said Tuesday, but there was soreness Monday and they had the x-rays done Monday night to be sure everything was okay.
