Dwight Howard will suit up for the Lakers tonight for the first time.
The six-time All-Star underwent surgery last April and sat out five exhibition games but will take the court against the Sacramento Kings in an exhibition at Staples Center.
Howard and the Lakers were non-committal earlier in the day but he was medically cleared after going through the morning walk-through without any problems.
The Lakers could use Howard, even though it's only an exhibition game. They are off to their worst exhibition start ever, sitting at 0-5 as the only NBA team without a victory.
