Dwight Howard took part in the Lakers' morning shoot-around and was expected to play Sunday night against Denver.

Howard did not practice Saturday because of a sprained rotator cuff in his right shoulder.

He was injured Friday against the Clippers after Caron Butler fouled him. Howard returned to the game following a Lakers timeout.

Howard is averaging 17.4 points and 12 rebounds in his first season with the team.

The Lakers have a tough schedule this week, starting Sunday against a team ahead of them in the standings and continuing with back-to-back games in Houston and San Antonio on Tuesday and Wednesday.

They finish the week with a home game Friday against Oklahoma City.
