Dwight Howard: (Back) Light Practice Tuesday
Update: Howard (back) took part in non-contact drills during the Lakers' first day of training camp, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Recommendation: Teammate Steve Nash even admitted he couldn't tell Howard any back issues. While there is a huge difference between participating in light practices and playing in a regular season game, this news is much more encouraging than nearly a month ago, when Howard was ruled out for training camp and the preseason. Superman says he hopes to play in some preseason games, but his participation in upcoming practices will likely determine that.
