Dwight Howard said his shoulder feels a little better since the Suns game, but continues to be sore and not well enough to play. When asked about his shoulder, Dwight said,  “It’s still not there yet. I’m not going to try to rush myself back and have the possibility of hurting it again.”

Howard is unsure if he’ll play against the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday.

The Lakers have an early game today against Detroit at 10 A.M. PST.
