Howard was allowed to suit up for Game 5 against the Golden State Warriors after the NBA elected not to elevate the flagrant foul-1 he received for hitting Warriors center Andrew Bogut in the face during Houston's Game 4 win to a flagrant-2, which would have earned him a one-game suspension that would have kept him out of the Rockets lineup on Wednesday.
