If he can’t play tomorrow, Mark Medina spoke to a source who said he’ll definitely play in Brooklyn on Tuesday:

The Lakers are officially listing him as a game-time decision and his recovery as day-to-day, but one source familiar with the situation said Howard will at least return Tuesday against the Brooklyn Nets.

“For sure, he will play in Brooklyn,” the source said.

Howard re-aggrevated a torn labrum in his right shoulder on Wednesday night during a loss to the Phoenix Suns.
