Howard Cleared For More Practice, Won’t Play Weds

Howard won’t play in the Lakers’ next preseason game Wednesday night against Portland in Ontario, Calif.
Howard was cleared Tuesday for limited participation in full-court scrimmages with contact. He had participated in every other aspect of the Lakers’ practices during training camp except full-court contact.
The six-time All-Star center had surgery on his back last spring.
Howard hasn’t projected a date for his Lakers debut, but is hopeful he can participate in a preseason game. After Wednesday’s visit from the Trail Blazers, the Lakers will have six more exhibitions before their season opener Oct. 30 against Dallas.
